Whoa! HTC One, the dream smartphone for many has been launched at a price of Rs 42,900 in India. Such a whopping price tag might have pulled a set of consumers away from the handset and choose some other smartphone with a reasonable price tag.
If you were thinking the same about the HTC's pricing strategy, here is good news for you. An online retailer site Shopyourworld has listed the 32GB variant of the handset at a price of Rs 41,000, which is a marginally lesser price that could please many.
The listing shows that the HTC One will be shipped in 8 to 12 days normally and in 5 to 7 days for those who book it under Priority Shipping. This coincides with the release date that the Taiwanese tech giant has announced, which is the third of fourth week of April. Further, it has to be noted that HTC has tied up with Reliance, wherein consumers will get 1GB 3G data free 3 months and BigFlix subscription for 3 months absolutely free.
Specwise, To remind of specs, HTC One houses a 4.7 inch Super LCD 3 capacitive touchscreen display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 1.7GHz quad core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS, 4MP UltraPixel rear camera with BSI sensor, 2.1MP front camera for video calling, 2GB RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G, high speed HSPA+, micro USB and a 2,300 mAh battery.
HTC One uses an UltraPixel camera, which takes in 300% more light than a standard smartphone sensor. This should give the handset far better low light performance than other high-end smartphone cameras. Better low-light performance translates to less grainy and underexposed images in poor lighting conditions and improved focus.
Also, Sense 5 UI implemented in the smartphone comes with software features including highly innovative features including BlinkFeed, Zoe, BoomSound and Sense Voice that offer an enhanced user experience apart from the usual Beats Audio integration.
