Coming this March? A new flagship HTC smartphone. The New HTC One’s goal is to make your life just as seamless and sleek as it’s zero-gap aluminum unibody and they’re attempting to do this with three key new components that’ll make you fall in love with your phone again.The 411 right this way….

First is the HTC BlinkFeed, which solves a problem we didn’t even realize we had, like constantly switching between apps. The HTC BlinkFeed turns that concept into your home screen. Now, neatly displayed on your home screen you’ll have all your social media updates (plus photos!) in addition to customized links to over 1,400 media sources (like Vice Media, Cool Hunting, Reuters, ESPN) for a customized screen that now includes personal interests. See the pic below.

Next is the HTC UltraPixel Camera with HTC Zoe. More or less, making that point and click you’ve got gathering dust more likely to never see the light of day gain. HTC Zoe gives you the ability to shoot high-res photos that come to life in three-second snippets. It also automatically creates integrated highlight films from each event comprised of Zoes, photos and videos set to music with pre-installed cuts, transitions and effects. These highlight videos can be remixed or set to different themes, and can be easily shared on social networks, email and other services.

To enable this innovative camera experience, HTC developed a custom camera that includes a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture lens and a breakthrough sensor with UltraPixels that gather 300 percent more light than traditional smartphone camera sensors. This new approach also delivers nice low-light performance. In addition, the perfect self-portrait or video is just a tap away with an ultra-wide angle front-facing camera which supports 1080p video capture. Multi-axis optical image stabilization for the rear camera also helps ensure video footage smoother whether stationary or on the move.

The last addition is with the HTC BoomSound. For the first time on a phone, front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier and an amazing full HD display that immerses people in music. Beats Audio™  integration is enabled across the entire experience for rich, authentic sound whether you’re listening to your favorite music, watching a YouTube video or playing a game.

What’s that sound? Your iPhone shaking? Could be…
