Ad tips off contract price in Australia at AUD 840

HTC is just weeks away from officially unveiling its next generation “One” smartphone, but that isn’t stopping a wealth of information on the device from making its way to the internet.
The last leak about the new HTC One came this week when some images of the device turned up on Chinese social network Weibo. The image shows the new One from all sides and showed the size of the smartphone compared to the HTC One Max phablet.
Today another leak has surfaced -- via an ad from Telestra, an Australian wireless carrier -- offering details on the dual cameras of the new HTC One. According to the ad, the dual cameras will of course allow for 3D photography.
However, the coolest thing about the dual cameras for most people will be the fact that they allow you to take photos and change the focus point after shooting the image. The dual cams will also allow users to create bokeh effects.
Other details of the phone tipped by the leaked ad include a 5-inch full HD resolution screen and BoomSound speakers up the front. The smartphone is tipped to sell for AUD 840 with no contract. That would equate to about $760 in the U.S., but with the notoriously high markups on technology products in Australia, the off-contract price in the U.S. is likely to be cheaper.

I like HTC attitude: give something new, innovate, be different.

Unjustly beaten to death by Samsung. They deserve to sell more.

Samsung? It was Apple which got the original HTC One banned from import into the U.S. via a patent lawsuit right around the time HTC most needed the revenue.

There are no friends in that business.

I'd like to think with the S5 lacking any big new features that HTC could gain a better position in the market.

Yet it's not good enough. The design is interesting, but not great by any means, it still looks too bulky, the bezel is huge. The feature list is there but it was last year too. Last year it was what Ultrapixels, now its dual camera.

Samsung didn't do much with the S5, yet Apple should be finally making a proper sized iPhone. Without a bulky bezel, without heft, with some new Apple only feature, and with the best marketing that will spin the crap out of it in a way HTC can't.

They were too conservative on changing the One, and it could destroy them this year.
