The new model, which this catalogue suggests will still be called the HTC One (or even “the all new HTC One”) will bringing with a 5 inch Full HD screen, metal body, the two front-facing speakers from HTC’s BoomSound, a new version of the HTC Sense overlay (6.0), and two cameras.
Two cameras used on a single phone can’t be classed as a totally new thing, mind you. HTC once tried this in the Evo 3D, though in that phone, the two cameras were there to let you capture 3D images and videos to play back on the 3D auto-stereoscopic screen.
Still, there’s always a possibility that this catalogue is a fake, especially since HTC was pretty quiet during Mobile World Congress, outside of the budget and mid-range offerings in the Desire series.
That said, if this is a fake, it’s a really good one, especially with a mention of “Telstra New Phone Feeling” in the terms and conditions.
As such, we’d probably say that this leak of the new One is probably close to real, and with a price of $840, it will be interesting to see how it shapes the market when it’s released soon.
