The software end of the device have also been given a fresh new look. The phone ships with Sense 6 on top of Android’s latest offering. The UI seems more intuitive than ever and the elements have been flattened. HTC has also included a few new features like Gesture Control and Extreme Power Saving Mode. Gesture Control or “Motion Launch” as called by HTC basically enables a slew of nifty gestures which can be used in tons of ways to activate different services. For example, the Auto Answer gesture enables you to answer calls without touching the device at all. You simply raise it to your ears and start talking.
The new HTC One will be available in three colors initially: Glacial silver, Amber Gold and DD’s pick of the lot, the Gunmetal Gray. The flagship will be available in stores right after its launch (Yes, you read it right) which is certainly a great marketing move by HTC. Do you think the new One has what it takes to be the ultimate Android? Let us know in the comments below.
