“All New HTC One” for AT&T Makes First Press Render Appearance

htc one 2014 att

And here we have the “All New HTC One” aka HTC One (2014) in silver with AT&T branding, courtesy of @evleaks. Nothing else has changed. It looks just like the previously leaked HTC One (2014) press render in silver. No official specs are out. No release date has been announced. We are still waiting for HTC’s March 25 event for all of that.

How long before press renders of other carrier variants arrive? Tough to say, especially since only the AT&T model has stopped by the FCC thus far. You better not include the words “exclusive” and “carrier” in any part of this launch, HTC. But you wouldn’t do that, would you?

    buy HTC phones ! support HTC !

  • NexusMan

    I really am interested in seeing and playing with this phone in person. After commenting on how bad the blurry cam, unofficial pics looked (and acknowledging that I realized they were just blurry unofficial pics of an unreleased phone), I must say that this render looks pretty nice. I’m anxious to see the real thing to form my official opinion.

    • Tim242

      You like big bezels and you cannot lie.

      • NexusMan

        Nope. Just that that @evleaks hides that giant black bar. :(

        • Tim242

          Yeah, that black bar is its black eye. I could look past the speakers not being aligned, and the rest of the bezel.

  • MistaButters

    The phone in pictures look nice. Then I remember it’s coming with a 5″ screen, but will be longer than a Note 3.

    Beastly

  • Fresh360

    What if HTC has solved the elusive announcement/release conundrum? An announcement on March 25th and a release on the 26th? So these aren’t exactly leaks but an actual well played roll out. Samsung’s announcement 2 months in advance of release could give HTC a jump. #TinFoilHatsAreCool

  • chris_johns

    on the htc one note…lame (black bar)

  • chris_johns

    on this disquis note…I say we stop using disquis for the comments…im sure their are other servers ive seen them…no downvote count is blasphamy they should at least make it an option the site chooses not them…ridiculous

    • Chris

      or not get worked up over it

      • chris_johns

        Nah ima stick with how i feel thanks for trying to sway me otherwise though pal much appreciated

        • Kevin

          If you really feel strong about Down Votes then reply with a comment saying: Down Voted. Like this.

          Down Voted

    • Tim242

      Or we could stop worrying about down voting and be nice. The point of up votes is to push the most useful posts to the top. Down votes serve no purpose.

  • cpo122

    This isn’t the same silver as the previous leak. The other was a much darker silver with black bands, while this is the same silver with white bands as last years model.

    • Chris

      Good eye

    • LionStone

      Maybe there will be subtle differences between carriers? Like some carriers don’t always have the same colors of the same phone. I like that darker version myself.

    • Tim242

      The darker one is the black/grey version.

  • JimbooMan

    Ohh yea, Htc One

  • Leif Sikorski

    If this rendering is true and the second thing on the back is really a camera it would be a pretty big design flaw. How many would completely cover it or cast at least a shadow on it while holding the phone in landscape?

  • Albert

    Anyone else feeling that buyers remorse?

    • Chris

      Both phones are not out yet.

      • Albert

        Thats the joke….

        • Chris

          I don’t see what’s funny considering that was posted before Samsung posted their launch date

          • Tim242

            No it wasn’t.

    • Tim242

      No.

  • Intellectua1

    More like the HTC One S

  • The Narrator

    Have we figured out if that’s just a wallpaper of new forked up sense?

  • Christopher Webb

    I was kind of hoping (and still am) that the leaks we’ve seen were fake, as I don’t like a few aspects of the redesign (asymmetrical speakers, HTC black bar, etc.). However, the previous leaks all had black bands while this one is white (although this article points to the fact that this looks ‘just like’ previous leaks). I doubt they’d offer the same base phone color with different colored bands though, so I’m not quite sure what to think at this point. I really like my current One and would consider upgrading, but I’m holding my judgements until an official announcement is made. Pulling for HTC…

    • Tim242

      The other one was the grey/black version. This is the silver one. Both have nasty black logo bars.

  • HTC1ME

    Git R Done HTC!

  • Mike Aurin

    This phone is beautiful except for the front. I have never heard the Boom Sound speakers for myself but is it honestly worth having close to 20% of the front of the phone useless?

    • Chris

      Scared of change?

    • The Narrator

      They should go the Sony route. Use that area to make it waterproof. That and HTC advantage, whatever it’s called, winning.

  • EdubE24

    BRING BACK DOWNVOTING!!!!

    • The Narrator

      No

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I just downvoted your comment… but I doesn’t matter…does it?

        • EdubE24

          Everyone did…

        • The Narrator
          • EdubE24

            Am I really upvoting this…well played Narrator!

          • tomn1ce

            is that Tim? 0_0

          • Kevin

            Haha, Tim! When did you become a Gif?

        • Nexoduss

          He doesn’t want it to come back because everyone downvotes everything that he says. Even if he switches names on here his annoying personality shines through and you end up not liking whatever name he comes up with. It’s great. He’s the idiot of this site and he as well as everyone else knows it.

          • The Narrator

            Sure, whatever helps you sleep at night.

        • El_Big_CHRIS

          Haha not one bit

      • PoisonApple31

        We don’t want to inflate The Narrator’s ego by bringing back downvoting..

        • The Narrator

          It eliminates trolls. I’m all for it

          • Nexoduss

            You’re the biggest troll I’ve literally ever seen on any site that I’ve visited. You’re like a bug that won’t die.

          • Tim242

            But, you are still here. *scratches head*

          • The Narrator

            But i’m not a downvote troll.

          • Tim242

            You are just a troll, period.

    • HTC1ME

      I guess you’re one of those down voting Trolls aren’t you. That like to sit there down voting everyone’s comments

      • EdubE24

        No not really. It just makes it a little more interesting in the comment section. Sorry to get you all fired up HTC guy!!

        • Nexoduss

          I like it when people think they are saying something funny or intelligent and then BOOOM 1 upvote by their guest account and 93 downvotes haha. priceless

    • Intellectua1

      Really though, it almost makes voting pointless. Besides the down votes are one of the best/funniest parts of the comment section..

      • EdubE24

        Agreed…

      • Tim242

        The point of up voting is to push the better posts to the top. Down voting served no purpose

    • Chris

      That would be disqus side.

      • EdubE24

        I know…I just miss seeing who could get more downvotes, you or Narrator!!

        • Chris

          I rarely downvote

  • droidify

    I think it’s the best looking android device yet. I love the metal body and the reduced bezels from last years model. I’ll be keeping my G2 but I would buy this if I had an upgrade to burn.

    • Ziich

      Bezels still look the same size to me

      • droidify

        I’m talking about the black bezels on the left and right of the screen. Definitely an improvement but they could have made them smaller.

        • Ziich

          oh yeah i think the side bezels r fine but the top and bottom still look the same

        • Tim242

          They still have the black bars on the top and bottom

    • Tim242

      Reduced bezels? They moved the buttons on screen, but kept the black bar. Not to mention the annoying black border they have put around every single sceen. No other OEM does that.

      • droidify

        I didn’t say it was perfect with G2 style bezels but they did reduce the bezels on the sides. At least that’s moving in the right direction. They could have pulled a Samsung and increased the bezels on all four sides

        • Tim242

          Samsung did not increase on all 4 sides. The increase on the top and bottom has to do with the water resistance. Even so, the bezels are still much less than HTC, with more usable screen.

          • droidify

            Just trying to push your buttons :-P

          • Tim242

            At least I have a real button to push
            : p

  • Charlie R.

    So what happens when Verizon doesn’t carry this phone until later in the Fall? Just like they did with the One last year. Like Kellen said, there’s been no FCC or Verizon specific One (2014) leaks yet. That would be just like Verizon.

    • Chris

      They need to find a way to put all their crapware, bookmarks, services and logos on the phone

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      I want to get this One ASAP, but you’re right, Verizon won’t have until late Q4 and by then I won’t care.

    • Tim242

      There hasn’t been “one” for Sprint or T-Mobile either.

  • Chris

    black bar looks transparent here.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Kellen what happened to our Down Votes??? Disqus is taking away my freedoms!

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      They’re still there, there is just no counter for them anymore. And yes, it kinda sucks.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Gah! Why isn’t that decision up to the Web site? No counter makes down votes useless.

        • Dale

          They don’t want peoples’ feelings to get hurt. Welcome to the new America!

          • EdubE24

            You would be the only person not missing this…

          • Nexoduss

            I blame obesity and those that suffer from it.

        • Tim242

          Down votes have always been useless. Up votes move comments up in a thread. Down votes did nothing.

      • EdubE24

        Tim this must be fixed. People need to know when they make dumb comments!!!

        • Chris

          It’s up to Disqus

          • EdubE24

            CHRIS I GET IT!!!!

          • Chris

            ok ok

  • Eric

    Such a beauty…that Verizon will inevitably destroy with logos.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      They should take a note from At&t. At&t went subtle with their logo and put it the same place on all device in the lower back and it’s barely noticeable.

      • Eric

        Verizon is anything but subtle. Last years AT&T HTC One also had this subtle logo yet Verizon felt the need to place both of their rear logos side-by-side. Now without the Beats Audio taking up rear real estate, Verizon is probably salivating :P

      • mike

        I don’t have AT&T so I don’t this, but does it always remind you that you’re on their network in the notification bar? Or is that just for ad purposes and not really there when you get your device…?

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Haven’t had an acutal At&t phone in a while just unlocked phones. Like right now it’s the N5. But if ti’s an At&t branded phone it will have At&t in the notification bar

          • Mike H.

            Yeah if verizon does that ill have a 3yr old style tantrum

        • Tim242

          At&t puts their logo there. They did that to match the iPhone. I tried them out for a few days. It drove me crazy. The worst part is that sometimes it’s there, sometimes not.

      • The Narrator

        I mean, who doesn’t want the death star on their phone?

    • Russell Sprague

      There is enough space on the bottom bezel for two verizon logo, on on each side of the HTC logo!

    • Christopher Webb

      I really don’t like Verizon’s branding, just like most people here. If they HAVE to brand devices, I can only hope someday they’ll drop the LTE logo (understandable when LTE was first rolling out, but not now) and get rid of the giant checkmark next to ‘Verizon.’ My One’s logo has been fading since I first got it in August, making it look even tackier.

      • Blue Sun

        I’m imagining that on a fresh device, a hair dryer probably could do an excellent job of removing the VZW branding.

    • Daistaar

      Just wait for the day that the back of your device has a 1×2 inch lcd streaming ads while you’re on a call. Today it’s logos for people to notice while you’re on a call. Tomorrow, full blown VZW animated logos and commercials.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    That Silver is so damn sexy! lol. Or maybe I’m just an HTC Fanboy. I’ll either be going full price on this or the unlocked version…..most likely the unlocked version though #GoPhone

  • Scottyb112

    Free Giant Black Bar included!

    • Kevin

      RIP HTC

    • BananaBob

      Such a nice phone, but the black bar is pretty dumb. Makes the phone longer, and wastes screen space!

      • Scottyb112

        It really is a nice phone. But they could have worked the HTC logo into the bottom and split the speaker grill so there is not black bar, and they should of eliminated that entire black band around the screen. Besides that its a damn nice phone

        • droidify

          But then where would Verizon put there logo?

          • jimt

            How about a permanent watermark across the whole screen.

          • Scottyb112

            Ohh verizon would find a way. Verizon would hot glue an extra piece on just to get their logo on there…

          • PoisonApple31

            You are right, no wonder they couldn’t design it that way. No room for a front logo.

          • michael arazan

            VZW will just brand it on the customers forehead after they buy the device, Forehead branding will save you $50 off the contract device.

        • PoisonApple31

          I would have liked them to have the HTC logo double as the software home key and eliminate the black bar!

        • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

          Yup, it’s even worse because of boomsound. No idea why they have the black bar still.

        • cryosx

          Should’ve just made the onscreen home button the HTC logo. Also I really hope the keyboard isn’t stacked over the nav bar. that’ll make for an awkward typing experience being so far up the phone. Please please please have the navbar hide/disappear when the keyboard is out

          • DDroid45

            you do know you can remove them navigation buttons under the keyboard right

          • o_zzy

            how would you go back when the keyboard is open?

          • cryosx

            close the keyboard for it to return. so you can’t go back with it open. i just want the typing position to be the same as the 2013 HTC One

    • The Narrator

      I think there’s more too it than we think. Maybe you press it and the phone transforms. You know, Michael Bay sh!t.

      • Scottyb112

        Thats a good possibility! I was thinking it might be a built in mood detector! you hold your finger across it and it turns red if you’re in love, blue if you are sad!

        • The Narrator

          I wonder what black means.

          • Nexoduss

            You’re gay

          • The Narrator

            Real mature, buddy.

          • Nexoduss

            The internet is not the place for maturity. As such, I bet you it doesn’t change to a different color for you.

          • The Narrator

            Something wrong with being gay in the first place? Sounds like Arizona is where you belong.

          • Nexoduss

            Yes because you’re a disgrace to them all and bring them all down.

          • The Narrator

            Never said I was gay, but good to know you feel that way. I’ll write that in my book of stuff I don’t care about.

          • TylerChappell

            Actually, with your name and avatar, you are a disgrace to anyone owning a Nexus device, or anyone who is a part of the Android community for that matter. Grow up please, or, if you prefer to remain so childish, go and buy an iPhone.

          • bob

            I’m sure you’re a disgrace to your mother. Probably why she killed herself

          • TylerChappell

            do u even joke brah?

          • Tim242

            I am.

    • j

      iPhone 3 sized bottom bezel.

      The only ‘need’ for the black bar would be additional space in the body for components, perhaps due to two front facing speakers, or some kind of sensor there. If there are no sensors there, they could have fit everything in if they gave a crap. HTC doesn’t give a crap.

  • Christopher Davis

    Come on March 25th

  • James

    In before black bar…

    • J. Gilbertson

      i really miss the old down voting system for comments like this

      • James

        It’s a satirical comment meant to precede, and hopefully preclude, the inevitable influx of unhelpful comments regarding this aspect of the phone’s design. But if you want to downvote, go right ahead.

        • Mike Aurin

          He can’t…thats his whole point…

          • James

            If you’d read Tim’s post, you’d know it is still possible to downvote. The counter for downvotes just doesn’t appear anymore.

          • Mike Aurin

            So still basically useless? Weren’t comments only sorted by upvotes anyway?

          • James

            That’s a good question I don’t have the answer to.

          • droidify

            You can still downvote it just doesn’t show the count.

        To be fair though, the screen does stop like 4/5ths of the way down the phone.

          Well that is true :)
