HTC One delayed until April

HTC’s woes with the One smartphone have continued – now the company expects to release the flagship smartphone sometime in April 2013.

HTC simply does not seem able to secure all the components it needs to produce the device. At first the company’s problems were related to the voice coil motor and the camera module used but now it seems the metallic body of the smartphone also causes problems – the metallic body of the HTC One needs 200 hours of work for just a single one to be produced and this also puts HTC behind schedule.

The good news is that the specs of the smartphone will stay the same. Here’s what you will get – a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and Gorilla Glass 3 technology, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, 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.

Once released the HTC One is expected to sell for EUR 730 – in Europe at least – but given the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S4 HTC may be forced to reduce the price.
