HTC unveils new flagship smartphone

HTC introduced its next flagship smartphone Tuesday, formally unveiling the new HTC One, which will make its global debut in late March.

The HTC One is made of aluminum and features a high-resolution 4.7-inch screen with a full HD 1080p resolution. Its screen has a 468-pixel density — possibly the greatest of any smartphone.

HTC, however, is trying to set its phone apart from the crowd with other top-of-the-line features.

For starters, the HTC One will include HTC BoomSound, which means it will have two dual front-facing speakers.

HTC also is boasting the device's UltraPixels Camera, which is supposed to take better photos in low-light situations but limits the image's resolution. The company also announced HTC Zoe, a feature that allows the device to take a flurry of pictures that are put together to create three-second snippets, similar to GIF files.

The HTC One also has an infrared sensor in its power button that allows it to be used as a TV remote with the use of an app.

On the software side, HTC announced BlinkFeed, a feature that lets users stream content from their social networks as well as news sites onto their device's home screen.
