Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC Crop Tuesday announced the launch of its latest flagship smartphone, the new HTC One.

The design, specification and features agree to the rumors that were heard over the past few weeks.

The new HTC One is crafted with distinct zero-gap aluminum uni-body design and sports a gorgeous 4.7 inch full HD display with 468 pixels per inch. It is powered by a Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.7 GHz clock speed paired with 2GB of RAM and operates on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system along with completely renovated HTC Sense user interface.

The smartphone is available in two storage options, 32GB and 64GB. The device has no expandable storage and it comes with silver and black color. For connectivity, it includes LTE (Long-Term Evolution), Near field communication (NFC), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and micro USB.

"People today immerse themselves in a constant stream of updates, news and information. Although smartphones are one of the main ways we stay in touch with the people and information we care about, conventional designs have failed to keep pace with how people are actually using them," said Peter Chou , CEO of HTC Corporation, in a press release. "A new, exciting approach to the smartphone is needed, and with the new HTC One, we have re-imagined the mobile experience from the ground up to reflect this new reality."

The device also introduces new features like HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe, HTC BoomSound and HTC Sense TV.

HTC BlinkFeed transforms the home screen into a bold new experience of single live stream of social media updates, news and photos.

The company claims that HTC BoomSound will offer the best audio experience of any mobile phone available today. The HTC BoomSound made its first debut in the smartphone with front-facing stereo speakers and dedicated amplifier.

The camera on HTC Zoe will capture photos at 4 megapixel resolution but the company claims that "the quality of each pixel is substantially higher than the industry average". While the HTC Sense TV will transform the new HTC One into an interactive program guide and remote control for most TVs, set-top boxes and receivers.

The device will be available globally through more than 185 operators and major retailers in more than 80 countries starting March.
