The smartphone party is getting hotter. With HTC looking to snap at any counterpart coming close to its territory, the scenario seems justified. Now here is more news that escalated the HTC flagship avatar—HTC One – to a height most brands crave to reach.

Ever heard of popularity even before real-time availability? The HTC One breathes life into such a tag. A number of friends have already received notification from Rogers about the One set to be shipped in five days. The pre-order book has only stacked on more pages till date. Adding fuel to such fiery heat of the rumors that US stores have received stocks of the HTC One and customers would just have to wait until the official release date. Reminds me of the excitement I had while waiting in queue for the Apple iPhone and iPad way back.

The Super LCD 3 capacitive touch screen is set to captivate us with its 4.7-inch face. The HD phone with 1.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor is a sturdy make that can tolerate all we want it to!

HTC has raised a chill down the spines of Apple and Samsung since that time it bagged the honor of being the best newbie armored for foray into tab territory. With the Samsung Galaxy S4 set to fly into the phablet sky, HTC One might well be in a hurry to conquer the crown before it sees worthy opponent.

The flagship offering comes with 2-UltraPixel shutter at the rear and a delightful front lens of 2.1-megapixel. At 5.04 ounces, the HTC One is indeed as easy to lap up as much as it is to flaunt.

Come what may it is we –the consumers—are in for a jolly good ride with top tabs from HTC and Samsung this season.
