Update: The all new  is now officially here, and its hardware specifications come as no surprise. The device features a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD3 panel, 2 GB of RAM, a 2600 mAh battery, and either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage.

The new One also features HTC’s new Duo Camera technology to use two camera sensors to provide post-shot focusing effects, as well as a new dual-color flash to help make flash photos look more natural. And on the software side, the new One will be available in both standard HTC Sense 6-laden and Google Play edition variants.

All of the goodies above are packed into a device measuring in at just 9.3 mm thick and weighing 160 grams. Does the new HTC One (2014) give the Taiwanese OEM a fighting chance at taking on Samsung and other OEMs this time around. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

The  has been leaked so many times that it almost seems silly for the OEM to hold a launch event. We already know what Sense 6 looks like, a few of their apps have made it to the Play Store, and now an eager carrier jumped the gun by revealing all of the device’s relevant specs. Despite the massive amount of leaks, it’s hard to not be excited about a device that features high end specs, a fantastic screen, and HTC’s trademark build quality.

The HTC One (2014) features a slightly larger 5″ 1080p Super LCD3 panel, and it runs Android 4.4.2 skinned with Sense 6. And thanks to previous leaks, we know that it will feature a Snapdragon 801 processor. The device will be available with 32 GB of internal storage, but it will also feature a microSD expansion slot for added memory.

The “All New One” builds upon the stunning build quality that made the original device such a success by continuing the zero-gap all-metal unibody construction. Accordingly, it does not feature a user-replaceable battery. It does, however, feature HTC-exclusive technologies like HTC Zoe, BoomSound, and the new Duo Camera, which lets you apply focus effects after the shot has been taken.

The HTC One (2014) is set to launch in 30 minutes, so head over to HTC’s launch site to watch the unveiling live. Is the HTC One (2014) all that you hoped for? Let us know in the comments below, and then head over to XDA Senior Member radiotrib‘s One 2014 launch thread to continue the discussion.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process.
