HTC One is official with quad-core CPU, 1080p screen and Ultrapixel camera

HTC took the wraps off of the HTC One in London and New York at simultaneous events. If you have been following all the leaks, then you already have a fair idea about how this phone looks, but the official pictures take the device from just good-looking to downright gorgeous.
The HTC One has a 4.7-inch full HD display
The company’s slideshow of images began with a showcase of the silver version, a silken cut of aluminium and a stunning screen on top. The black version is equally striking, but there’s nothing we haven’t seen before and we don’t only mean the leaks. Without mincing words, it looks like a spitting replica of the BlackBerry Z10, with some spit and polish to HTC’s credit.
HTC has dual front stereo speakers, which is a super neat feature and induced a ‘why hasn’t anyone done that’ reaction. Bass heads will be happy to note that HTC has stuck with Beats Audio for the sound experience. By the way, HTC is calling the sound experience "BoomSound." (RLY?)
HTC One's camera has also been talked about before in rumours. Heard the one about Ultrapixels? Well, it’s true. The HTC One is the first camera with ‘UltraPixels’. In fact the company makes it a point to call it the HTC Ultrapixel, which seemingly offers better low-light performance than any comparable flagship. It’s an imaging sensor customised to HTC’s specification and its enlarged pixels can absorb roughly three times more light than a conventional 8-megapixel camera’s ‘regular’ pixels, at least that's what HTC claims. Essentially, the Ultrapixel camera is a 4-megapixel sensor which captures images with greater detail than its 8 and 13-megapixel rivals. We will be seeing the results of the real-world performance of the device soon.
An all new design for HTC
HTC has also thrown in an HDR video mode, just like the Xperia Z, an expanded photo editing suite, and a new HTC Zoe photo option, which captures 5 photos before you press the shutter and another 15 after you do, giving you plenty to choose from. If you want more, it will also record a 3-second HD video clip besides giving you 20 pictures.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
