HTC faces problems with One flagship smartphone

The Taiwanese company HTC has suddenly faced production problems affecting its upcoming One flagship smartphone. Unfortunately for the company and all those people willing to purchase a One smartphone HTC is capable of producing just 20 per cent of the previously planned number of One smartphones.

The main reason for this is problems with the manufacturing of the voice coil motor and the camera module used in the One smartphone. Thus the initial market quantities will be severely limited and fans of the brand may have to wait a few more months in order to get a One smartphone. Still HTC will release the One on March 15 but US customers will be the first ones to get it – if you live outside the US then you are out of luck.

The HTC One comes with a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and Gorilla Glass 3 technology. The smartphone is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU. The hardware list continues with 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage (there isn’t an expansion slot, however), Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, HDMI and a 2300 mAh battery.

The smartphone also offers a rear 4 MP camera with increased sensitivity to light, support for 1080p video recording, ImageChip 2 technology, HDR, BSI and Smart Flash technologies. The rear camera isn’t the only one though – the HTC One has a front 2.1 MP camera too. In addition to these two the One comes with a high-quality Beats Audio sound system that guarantees music delight to everyone. There’s HTC Sense too.

Such a smartphone deserves the best and this is the reason why the HTC One comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The only downside could be price – in Europe the smartphone is expected to cost around EUR 730.
