In February, HTC announced its flagship smartphone HTC One, which the company expects to release in March 2013; however, not all markets will get the latest HTC one in March. Per reports, India is expected to get the smartphone in the third week of April.
"HTC One would hit the retail shelves in India by second half of April 2013, most probably between the third or last week of the month," said Manu Seth, Marketing Director, HTC India.
The HTC One sports top-end specifications and the company is hoping that its flagship smartphone entices customers looking for a high-end handset. The smartphone has a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 capacitive touchscreen display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
A 1.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor powers the smartphones. The HTC One also touts a 2-UltraPixel rear-facing camera.
"The new HTC One will be the first to feature the HTC UltraPixel Camera - an advanced imaging technology that offers a great leap in the quality of point-and-shoot photos and video. Smartphones have rapidly become the primary camera for millions of people, and taking pictures has become an indispensable part of daily life. HTC is committed to offering the highest quality camera available, so even everyday pictures are gratifying and memorable," says HTC.
The HTC One also has 2GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G, high speed HSPA+, micro USB and a 2,300 mAh battery.
HTC One is set to launch in Europe and the U.S. this month. Anticipating high demand in the U.S. and Europe, HTC may push the release of the smartphone in major Asian countries, which were scheduled to get shipments in March, to April or even May this year.
It remains to be seen if the HTC One will see high-demand after the release or if upcoming smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the next-generation iPhone will overshadow the release of the HTC One.
