Innovative New Experiences
At the center of the new HTC One experience is HTC BlinkFeed™, a bold new experience that transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information, such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, and news and photos with immersive images so the user no longer needs separate applications to find out what’s happening. HTC BlinkFeed aggregates the newest content from the most relevant and interesting sources, giving it to users at a glance, all in one place, without the need to jump between multiple applications and websites.
Photo bugs who loved the camera features of HTC EVO 3D and EVO 4G LTE will take delight in HTC UltraPixel Camera with HTC Zoe™ – a new feature bringing photos to life showing more personality and emotion than a still photo ever could. HTC Zoe gives users the ability to shoot high-resolution photos that come to life in three-second snippets. Zoe images, photos and videos are then displayed in a unique way in the new gallery, transforming the traditional photo gallery of still images into a motion gallery of memories.
Additionally, the new HTC One features a superior sound capability. Customers who love the Beats By Dr. Dre™ Audio features on HTC EVO™ 4G LTE will now enjoy an even better experience with HTC BoomSound™. BoomSound introduces front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier and an amazing full high-definition display that brings users closer to their music, videos, games and YouTube™. Beats Audio integration is enabled across the entire experience for rich, authentic sound. HDR recording uses advanced dual microphones and audio processing to capture clean, rich sound that is worthy of HD video footage.
