“All New HTC One” Stops by FCC, Looking Ready for AT&T

htc m8 fcc

The FCC briefly posted documents for the “All New HTC One” this afternoon before pulling them for whatever reason. That’s unfortunate, as we can almost always find dirty little secrets hidden in these documents about that device that have yet to surface. For now, we’ll have to go with what Engadget found, as they were the ones to uncover them.

According to their findings, this particular model of the HTC One (2014) or “M8,” is headed to AT&T with LTE bands of 2, 4, 5, 7 and 17. If HTC plans to live to see another day, they will undoubtedly bring the phone to all other carriers at the same time, so don’t take this as a sign that AT&T will have some sort of exclusive first dibs. The FCC listing also showed that there is NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi on board. Again, there is probably more info in there, but with the docs now gone, we can’t dig for more. 

If you take a look at the device backside image pulled from the docs that is sitting up top, we can see that the headphone jack has been moved to the bottom, something the leaked renders showed yesterday. We also can tell that the phone looks much like the original One, but is more rounded this time around. The power button has switched sides on the top, but the Volume rocker and SIM tray seem to be in their original spots.

If we can find more, we’ll be sure to add it to this post. Otherwise, we’ll be in attendance on March 25 to bring you the world as its unveiled by HTC.

    That bottom headphone jack clinches it. I’m getting one of these the first time I see a ‘buy’ button. If there’s 64gb and/or GPE, all the better.
    Thanks Kellen for not giving up the fight and complaining valiantly until they listened to us!

    • Tim242

      Too bad they don’t listen about bezels.

      • Chris

        of browser icons…

        • Alan Paone

          They can’t hurt chrome

          • Chris

            A while ago @tim242:disqus threw a huge fit over a browser icon being a little larger then the others.

      • Alan Paone

        Baby steps

        • Tim242

          That’s their problem, too many baby steps. They won’t make it.

          • Alan Paone

            meh. Bezels don’t make it dangerous to listen to music with your phone like the top jacks do, and they’re in the middle of the pack there anyway. Unless they’ve messed up something we haven’t seen yet, the only uncorrected mistakes from the OG One are the bezels and marketing budget.

          • Tim242

            Hopefully they upped the MP on the camera. If they kept it the same and added a gimmicky 2nd sensor to work on it later, they will have failed.

          • Alan Paone

            I think we had this conversation a few weeks ago, but I think 4mp is fine if they fix the jpeg engine or upgrade it to 4.5 quickly and let us shoot raw and fix it ourselves.

          • Tim242

            Average consumers don’t want to deal with all that. They want to take a picture, and have it look good…4 MP is not good enough for that.

          • Alan Paone

            That’s why I said “if they fix the jpeg engine” first. Do you have a 2.7k monitor that you use to look at cell phone pictures? 4 million pixels is a lot, so long as you aren’t agressively applying a blur to the entire photo for no obvious reason like htc currently does.

  • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

    If they release if for Verizon, I may trade my iPhone 5S for One.

  • Sqube

    HTC is still having an amazingly difficult time deciding where they want to put their buttons and 3.5mm jack, I see.

  • deskjob

    Actually calling it HTC One (2014) or the 2014 HTC One doesn’t sound half bad. It’s like the auto industry – i.e. the 2014 Corvette instead of Corvette 61.

    At this point, looks like the black bar is probably real. Oh well. Here’s hoping they used that space underneath for extra battery. I mean, if the thing shows up with say a 4000mah battery, I bet suddenly people would forgive the black bar very quickly…

    At least match the Droid Maxx?

    • Tim242

      It could have been display and still had battery behind it, like the rest of the phone

    • M3D1T8R

      Yep. The correct on screen buttons put this on my Maybe list. If the battery is 3000+ it will be hard to pass up. I honestly still get by relatively well with my DNA’s lowly 2020mah. Make a 64GB option (not at&t exclusive) or sneak an SD slot in next to the sim and if it’s gpe or rootable for WiFi hotspot, I will definitely buy it as finally a worthy DNA replacement. That dark gray looks real nice (even though I’m convinced it’s a fake render).

      Do reasonably well on the above list, HTC, and I’ll forgive the logo bar.

    • The Narrator

      4000?

      3000 max.

      • Chris

        4000 in another year or so.

    • michael arazan

      Maybe the HTC black bar is a notification when in sleep mode that alerts to you flashing when receiving a message

  • Chris

    Didn’t AT&T have exclusive rights to the 64GB One?

    Hope thats not the case this year.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Ready for my GoPhone plan!

  • The Narrator

    I just want to hear some specs :(

    • Maxim∑

      typical snapdragon 800, 1080p display 2GB of RAM and nice big bezel for the HTC logo.

      No fingerprint sensor surprisingly unless its on the HTC logo which would make a little more sense

      • The Narrator

        It would be nice to hear that they caught up in terms of specs. Guess it’s just a One with an 800

  • paul_cus

    Really wish they would have put the headphone jack on the bottom for the OG One.

  • Rammstein

    Wouldn’t be surprised if HTC gave AT&T an exclusive launch for a certain color.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      That could happen, but HTC can’t win if they release the phone itself to only one or two carriers.

      • flosserelli

        Agreed. That would be the final nail in HTCs coffin…at least for the U.S. market.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          If they’re dead in the US market, I mean that’s pretty much it

        • Chris

          @Good_Ole_Pinocchio:disqus

          HTC really needs to focus on the US market. Its being donmated by Samsung.

          • flosserelli

            Samsung is dominating all markets.

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        For this reason I hope they release the phone for all carriers at once. I’m down to get the new One but it needs to be ready from launch, not in November

  • Jordan

    In a few moments, someone will post a picture saying “It also ready for Verizon” and show the Verizon logo taking up the entire back side of the ‘All New HTC One’…

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Hah! I hope not…

    • athorax

      It also ready for Verizon

      • Eric

        :P

        • flosserelli

          Almost, but not quite big enough.

      • The Narrator
        • Chris

          Thats what this years one will look like.

          We can blame Verizon for this.

          • T4rd

            If HTC has any balls, they wouldn’t allow that to happen. I like to think Samsung kept them from bastardizing the GS4 and Note 3 like they did the Note 2 (home button logo).

    • flosserelli

      That will require an extra 2-3 weeks to complete their “certification process”.
