HTC Teases “All New HTC One” and Its “Sleeker” Body

htc one 2014

Poor, HTC. They created this entire series of teaser videos to introduce some hype into their unveiling of the “All New HTC One” aka HTC One (2014) on March 25, and yet we have already seen the phone in a full 12-minute clip thanks to some young kid in Illinois. We still don’t know all there is to know, though, because well, that 12-minute clip was extremely painful to watch and light on details. So HTC is going to continue to plug away as if that video leak during the Oscars never happened. 

In this latest clip, we get the guys in the lab again, talking about the all-metal design of the original One. That, of course, leads into the pixelated teasing of the All New One, which is said to be “sleeker” than ever. The rest is voiced-out.

The previous spot teased BoomSound.

    HTC, why why why did you go with the horrid mismatched screen wasting buttons? The bezel looks worse than the iPhone’s now.

  • Tim242

    Complete nonsense. They need help.

    • Chris

      So do you

  • Intellectua1

    I just can never see myself buying an HTC phone.. I want to give LG a chance since Samsung has the Knox thing going on but I’d almost rather give up custom Roms than go with LG..

    • Lee Long

      That’s funny, I said the same thing about Samsung. I did give the S4 four days, but it just wasn’t for me. I’ve had 3 HTC phones and have loved every one of them…Maybe give a try. You might decide what I did about Sammy, or you might never go to another brand,…

    • ceejw

      Do you have a particular reason for not wanting an HTC phone?

      • Intellectua1

        Just because it’s HTC mostly I’ve never experienced one but I’ve heard more bad than good.. I did like the Evo but never purchased it, I think that’s when I started hearing bad things about HTC..

        • onlygoodtime88

          the most idiotic reason i heared in my life dont talk about something if you not bought it and used it with your hands

          • Intellectua1

            Oh you mean like most the people here do with Samsung devices, and another thing before you talk about idiotic work on your grammer and make sure you can form a complete sentence. You should have put “I’ve heard” and “something if you have not bought it” go back to school my friend..

          • Intellectua1

            And when has judging something off reviews been a bad thing?? I normally don’t result to insults but you sir are the idiot here.. (ex. I’ve heard more bad than good)

    • TylerChappell

      I mean, you do realize that when you buy LG, you’re basically just buying a Samsung clone, right? lol

  • Ryan5609

    Sorry about all of the yelling. COME UP WITH A FREAKING NEW NAME!!!!!!!! SOMETHING CATCHY! THE “HTC ONE TWO” “HTC TWO” “HTC ONE²” “HTC ONE + ONE = 2″ “HTC M8″ Hated the “New iPad” and the “New Nexus 7″, have a 5 minute meeting at HQ and come up with a new name. Hypothetical conversation, Me: Hey honey I’m heading out to buy a used “New HTC One” Honey: “if its used, how is it new?” Me: Well it is used, but it is a new model” Honey: “So if you got a new model from last year what would that be called” Me: “It would be a new HTC One 2013″ Honey: “That’s stupid, why didn’t they just call it the HTC 2″ Me: “Because of reasons I guess”

    • Ben Edwards

      You realise the official name will be HTC One though, right? “The new HTC One” is just a marketing moniker so that people know there is, in fact, a new device coming out. If anything it’ll be labelled HTC One (2014) on shelves, but it will still be the HTC One at the end of the day. Do you also complain when car manufacturers release a new model and they don’t call it (for example) the Subaru Impreza 56?

      Or are you one of those people who like to say they have the new [devicename] 4 when your friends only have the 3?

      • Ryan5609

        Yes I must have the newest things, just so I can brag to my friends. I could care less about having the latest and greatest. Do you ever hear people refer to their phones as the 2013 iPhone or the 2014 Galaxy S. No, sounds stupid right? 2014 Toyota Camry, the 2012 Lexus IS 250, we’re much more used to that. Phones don’t share motor vehicle naming conventions. If I talk about an iPhone 5s, you know exactly which phone I am talking about. If I mention the iPhone 2011 do you immediately know which one I talking about. I guess I just prefer a logical progression. I expect the next Nexus to be the Nexus 6, not the Nexus 5 2014, or the Nexus phone 2014, that would just not make sense. Logical names also make it much easier when shopping for phone accessories.

    • Lee

      It’s going to be called the HTC one up. As in, one upping the competition. Go on their social media pages.

  • Chris

    Still not the best way of going for it. Having actual teaser videos with no cheesy ‘acting’ or people at all would have been a much better route. Release one per week up to the launch.

    Still gonna get it though. s5 is nothing special in my eyes.

    • Tim242

      Yeah Chris, sure.

      • Chris

        You have a problem with someone’s opinion? Learn to deal with it

        • Tim242

          We all know that you will buy nothing but HTC, until they are out of business. There was no need to even mention the S5.

          • Chris

            i have an upgrade right now. i was holding off to see what samsung has to offer. i was not impressed, so i’m gonna see what htc has to offer. so far from the leaks i like what i see.

          • Tim242

            By all means, please tell me what impresses you about the All New HTC One. The camera on you EVO LTE is better, and has less bezel. The only thing I can see possibly being a plus, is if you are one of the few that would benefit from the front speakers. Most people use headphones, or a real speaker.

          • Ranjan Srinivas

            How could you possibly draw that conclusion about the camera? ‘few’? I think there are much more than a ‘few’ people who benifit from front speakers.

  • Kelly OBrien

    Holy bad haircut Batman !

    Is it me on the left guy’s face is …

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      No country for old men. My favorite movie.

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

        Probably a top 10 movie for me as well. Still watch it almost every time it’s on some random network.

        • http://www.jimmyday.com/ Jimmy

          Have you guys read the book? Even better.

          • TheD

            People can’t have favorite movies and read books in your world, sucks to be you elitist pos

      • The Narrator

        Skyfall.

  • crazed_z06

    A Metal body that will promptly be relegated to a plastic case.

    Didnt HTC try this “All Metal” selling point with the original One? What makes them think it’s going to work this time?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Only time I put my One into a case is when I planned on selling it. I don’t use cases. My Nexus 5 stayed in a case for all of 7 days. People like premium looking and feeling devices. People are vain. It’s a part of owning something, you want people to see it.

      • Leif Sikorski

        People like to have “unique” devices, that’s why the case industry is so large and most iPhones you see in the wild are in a case.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          I see just as many iPhones out of cases as I do in. I’m not saying cases are a bad idea. I’m saying it’s all personal preference, and there’s a definite demographic that doesn’t use cases.

      • crazed_z06

        I go commando with my phones also, but I’d say 80% of devices I see are in plastic cases. iphones, galaxies, htc, all in cases. Co-worker just got a HTC One and he promptly suffocated it in a case because he “didnt want it to get messed up”..

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Lol “didn’t want to get it messed up” I used to be that person. But Cases just annoy me and I want a phone to feel like a phone in my hands.

          • Chris

            when I first got my EVO LTE, I had an otter box on it. I got tired of the bulk and the silly screen protecter that only made the screen look degraded. Removed it and went naked.

          • Intellectua1

            Otterbox gross.. I never understood how people could do that to a phone.. I mean do you really need that much protection.. I’d go without a case before I murder the sleekness of my phone with that thing..

          • Chris

            hence why i removed it

      • droidftw

        I just bought a case for my LG G2 (Poetic Pallete) as this phone gets scratched easier than any phone I have ever owned. This is the first time I have ever used a case.

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

          Now that it’s already scratched, what’s the big deal?

      • Tim242

        People on this blog…maybe. Average consumers buy a case immediately when they buy their phone and have me put them on before they leave the store.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Nothing to do with my point of not everyone wanting a case.

          • Tim242

            You said that people like premium looking and feeling devices. My point is that 99% of people don’t care. I don’t use cases either. But most people do. Not once in my 3 years working in a store has a customer ever mentioned a premium feel. They don’t obsess over things that tech nerds do.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            99% is an exaggeration. The point is not all people use cases, and the manufacturers that put in effort into their devices look and feel for a reason. This has nothing to do with tech nerds vs anyone else. Especially since I mostly see the average iPhone user without a case.

          • Tim242

            I don’t know where you are, but every single iPhone I see in public is in an ugly case. Not to mention, every single iPhone sold in my store leaves in a case.

    • Chris

      the only time my EVO LTE is in a case is right now due to the back cover breaking off and not sticking. not gonna order a new one when my upgrade is here and i’m gonna get the m8 in a month or so.

      • Cael

        Your statement has nothing to do with anything he said.

        • Chris

          Talking about Cases My friend. Put your glasses on

          • Cael

            The Evo LTE isn’t made out of metal and HTC wasn’t marketing it based on its metal body. So sticking it in a plastic case doesn’t defeat the purpose of HTC’s marketing.

          • Tim242

            The EVO LTE has a metal unibody, with a plastic battery cover. The Thunderbolt and Inspire also had metal bodies. HTC has been doing metal phones for many years.

    • KingofPing

      Case?

      Bought a One on launch day. It has *never* seen the inside of a case and never will.

      I never understood why anyone would buy a device they think looks and feels great and then ruin it completely by covering it all with some god-awful, gawdy, ugly, rubber, piece of crap.

      Hoping the case industry dies a short quick death with all the water-proof/dust-proof devices out there and the free screen replacement policies cropping up…

    • Cael

      It takes HTC a couple years to catch on to what works and realize what doesn’t.

      • Tim242

        Nobody wants their crap.

        • Chris

          surely some do other wise they would be out of business.

    • Ben Edwards

      A lot of people seem to assume everyone puts their device in a case. None of my friends phones are in cases, none of my families phones are in cases. A couple of my workmates use cases, a couple don’t. I used a case once with my Galaxy S3 and it picked up more damage than my caseless S1, S2, or Nexus 4/5 – literally, taking the case on and off to remove or replace the SD card damaged the back plate and side surround.

  • Juan

    Hopefully between now and the reveal HTC goes back to the drawing board and redesigns the All New One without a blackbar. Just to surprise us :)
    ….but that won’t happen

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    They should put these ads on TV man lol. It’s not normal to advertise something before it’s announced (obviously because of many things like possible delays) . . . But I like these Ads… and the Anticipation of “Wait for March 25th” would work well with the average consumer. This would have played well for example during the Oscars last night.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “Metal Head, And Body” lmfao

  • http://dexterslab.wikia.com/wiki/Mandark Mandark

    I’d love a blue version of the All New HTC One.

    • TylerChappell

      Oh I am sure you will be able to get a blue one…..6 months AFTER its release, and only from Best Buy, lmao

      • http://dexterslab.wikia.com/wiki/Mandark Mandark

        I live in the UK so it probably sucks that the Blue HTC One is exclusive in Best Buy only.
