Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC launched the much-awaited HTC One smartphone in New York City and London on Tuesday.  

"People today immerse themselves in a constant stream of updates, news, and information. Although smartphones are one of the main ways  we stay in touch with the people and information we care about, conventional designs have failed to keep pace with how people are actually using them," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation.

"A new, exciting approach to the smartphone is needed and with the new HTC One, we have re-imagined the mobile experience from the ground up to reflect this new reality." he added.

One of the main features of 'HTC One' is its 2.0 ultra-pixel rear camera (equivalent to 4.0-megapixel), but don't get fooled by the number. The company claims that its camera is more futuristic than conventional high-resolution camera totting smartphones.
