HTC's latest flagship device, named the One, has been spotted on a number of listings online. Shopping website, ShopYourWorld, is selling the handset for Rs 41,000, which is almost Rs 2,000 less than the official cost of the phone. At the time of writing, the phone isn't available for purchase anywhere else, but it is listed on some other websites.
The One will undoubtedly be a popular phone because of its price point. We've been very impressed with the handset, as you can see from our review. It has a good-looking new UI and its hardware can pack quite a punch.

“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 Faisal Siddiqui, Country Head, HTC India, during the launch. “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 HTC BlinkFeed transforms the home screen into a single live stream of information aggregated from various sources. The infomation displayed on the screen includes social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news and photos.
HTC Zoe gives people the ability to shoot high-res photos that come to life in three-second snippets. These photos, called Zoes, are then displayed in a way that brings the gallery to life and transforms the traditional photo gallery of still images into a motion gallery. It also automatically creates integrated highlight films from each event comprised of Zoes, photos and videos set to music with professionally designed cuts, transitions and effects. These highlight videos can be remixed or set to different themes, and can be shared on social networks, email and other services.
HTC BoomSound introduces front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier and a full HD display that immerses people in music, videos, games and the YouTube clips they love. BeatsAudio integration is enabled across the entire experience.
