Watch out, iPhone 5: HTC is shedding its plastic polycarbonate shells in favor of a sleek, all-aluminum "zero-gap" metal unibody with easy-to-hold tapered edges. HTC One, which launched in February, will be available April 19 on AT&T and Sprint for $200 (32GB) and $300 (64GB, AT&T only) with a two-year contract. Preorders on AT&T begin April 4 and on Sprint April 5.
In terms of industrial design and internal specs, HTC has come a long way since its last effort. While the similarities between the HTC One and Apple's metal-clad iPhone 5 are hard to ignore, perhaps that likeness will position HTC ahead of the other much-anticipated Android, the Samsung Galaxy S4 which opens up to preorders on AT&T starting April 16.
Get to know the standout features, tech specs, and color offerings of the HTC One a little better, and let us know if you'll be rocking out to HTC's heavy metal smartphone this Spring.
