Yes, the New HTC One Will be Referred to as “The All New HTC One”

all new htc one

The name for HTC’s 2014 flagship is 100% confirmed at this point if you ask us. Tech media have been referring to it as “the All New HTC One” for a couple of weeks now thanks to leaks. And even in those painful HTC teaser videos, the company is calling the phone “the new One.” But just in case that hadn’t hit home yet, HTC’s UK Twitter account Tweeted the above image yesterday, which clearly shows the words “The All New HTC One” at the top, along with “Feel it.” 

The Tweet makes note of March 25, where “something is happening.” Since that’s the date for the unveiling of the device, I think you all know what is happening.

Oh, we’ll probably continue to call it the HTC One (2014), though, because that’s a hell of a lot easier to keep track of, especially if we get another One next year. All clear?

    I thought we got that news weeks ago.

  • Matt G

    I have no problem with the name for this year but what happens when they release next years version and this one is still referred to as the all new One?

  • David Dudovitz

    Their videos end with #OneUp, Ron, loves the name One UP, and I am a fan as well. Thus, im my min, it is the One Up. Settled.

  • M3D1T8R

    This “all new” One is just marketing speak for the phone’s launch. It’s the same as a car company saying “introducing the all new 2014 Lexus…” The name of the phone is the HTC One. It’s just the new 2014 model. Not that hard to understand guys.

  • Mark Aaron Collado

    Why not the HTC Highlander ? “There could only be One”

  • Alan Burnstine

    That sure is some good marketing there HTC.. I thought you were concentrating on better marketing this year. Sad that is the best name you could come up with.

  • Tony Byatt

    It is the “HTC One”…“The All New HTC One” is just marketing so folks know it’s the 2014 model…

    • M3D1T8R

      Yep. I wrote the same above before reading through the comments.

  • Ricky Ortiz

    I don’t get all the negativity around the name, like Google did the same thing with the Nexus 7, 2012 and 2013 versions and no one cared about that.

    • PoisonApple31

      This is true. Many people referred to the Nexus 7(2013) as the Nexus 7 FHD (Full HD). Due to your comment, I’ll refer to the HTC One(2014) as the HTC One DC (Dual Camera).

      • Ben Edwards

        I’ve literally never heard (or seen) anyone refer to the 2013 N7 as the Nexus 7 FHD :P I must be hanging out in the wrong places.

        • PoisonApple31

          I first noticed it rifling through Amazon accessories.

    • Cael

      Google only sold one version, not both at the same time. Will the 2013 One be sold for free on contract or $99 compared to the 2014 One at $199? How confusing is that.

      • Ben Edwards

        I imagine they’ll stop stocking the 2013 model when the 2014 model is announced and/or released to avoid the confusion.

    • http://www.KamilGPhotography.com/ KamilG225

      Not necessarily true. They didn’t name it the “All New Nexus 7″…just “Nexus 7 (2013)”. A lot more straightforward.

  • johnaferraro

    They should call it the HTC One-Up

  • Joshua Rossi

    The HTC formerly known as HTC

    • flosserelli

      Don’t you mean “the phone formerly known as the One”

      • Sporttster

        lol. Good ‘One’. Lot of young people on here though that may not even know who that is, lol, or what he did with his name.

  • Robert Macri

    This will really make sense in 8 months.

    • TSON1

      Was that a pun :(

    • tylerc23

      It’s just called the “HTC One” so yeah your right it will
      They’re just introducing it as The All New HTC One because it’s the new HTC One

  • Intellectua1

    Referring to something as the “All New” sounds like I know we screwed up on the first one but this one is new and improved.. Like the first was a complete failure. Makes me skeptical of their devices..

    • http://www.jimmyday.com/ Jimmy

      Kind of like Apple does in their keynotes, right? “A 2x faster processor.” “4X the resolution.” Makes you second guess just how “magical” the previous generation of iJunk was.

      • Intellectua1

        Exactly

    • Fresh360

      Cars come out annually and the names don’t change and are referred to as “All New” in marketing…So the All New S550 doesnt make the 2013 version screwed up.

      • Intellectua1

        It’s Mercedes not HTC, they don’t have a bad track record.. Besides that’s not a good way to put it being cars are almost never renamed and phones are..

        • Fresh360

          Actually cars are the perfect analogy because they are an item that are sold annually with minor updates and keep the same naming conventions. How silly would it be if it was a Camry, Camry2, and so on and so forth.

          • Chris

            that plus look at the sub models.

            focus s, focus se, focus ses, focus sel, focus st

          • rwrwr

            Only budget consumer cars get that treatment. The MP4-12C is just the MP4-12C.

  • Drrrrrrrooooooooiiiiiiiiid

    So we’ve had the HTC First, HTC One X, HTC One, and now the All New HTC One. That’s not confusing at all.

    • aQuickBit

      “The All New” part is supposed to alleviate this mess that they have created with the naming. It’s name is the HTC One. That’s it. That’s how people are going to remember it and call it. They are trying to get that brand recognition and they need to start somewhere. Calling it the HTC One (2014) in advertising isn’t very appealing so it will be the “All New HTC One”. They will probably do the same thing next year with the “same” name just to keep the One brand intact. I don’t know that’s just my 2 cents.

      • Shahul Hameed Akbar

        Exactly.. “The All New” part is just going to be used as an adjective..

      • Fresh360

        I have no idea why this is so difficult for people to comprehend. I believe it is only an annoyance to bloggers, because they have to write it out.

      • Intellectua1

        Great point, didn’t think of it that way…

    • paul_cus

      Only a select few remember the First, though.

      • antwonw

        Hey, that phone is STILL really awesome! (Minus the Facebook crap). But the phone itself runs nearly pure Android and was basically a mini Nexus. I still have it an use it when I travel abroad.

        Edit: It should be noted that I got this phone in a contest from 9to5Google.

  • Guy Pierce

    More like “The All Same HTC fifteen”

  • bkosh84

    You actually didn’t expect them to call it the New One did you? I mean, come on.. Don’t be that gullible…

  • whomp whomp whompppppp

    Why not the HTC Two

  • Michael Quinlan

    This whole re-use of device names bugs the crap out of me. Invariably, the first iteration has no distinction in the media, advertising, accessory compatibility, etc., because it’s unnecessary at that point. Even if they append something to the name for the next iteration, it makes finding information relevant to the first iteration unnecessarily difficult. Just try to find information on the original Droid without being flooded with unrelated results for the plethora of devices in the Droid lineup.

    • Guest

      Yeah I know, it is sooo hard to find information about the original DROID without being flooded by useless information….

  • Droid Ronin

    They should have called it something similar to the One, instead of tacking on words to it. How about HTC Primero? Or HTC Alpha? Or HTC First? Oh wait…

    • PoisonApple31

      HTC Desperation? HTC Tremble? HTC Commonplace? HTC Trite?

  • cgalyon

    Why not “The Chosen One”? ;-p

  • fd2blk78

    “The All New” HTC One.

    Come on people! It’s not that hard!

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Is that what she said…..to a group of his friends?

  • shkrmkr79

    they should call it the All New Android Powered HTC iphONE. That wouldn’t confuse anyone…/s

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      That wasn’t a very good job at sarcasm.

  • joe

    the all new DOA device

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I don’t care at this point what it’s called as long as they understand how to differentiate in their commercials…

  • Skwisgaar

    HTC is gonna set sued by Marky-Mark…this is clear “Good Vibration” plagiarism!!! “Feel it! Feel it!”

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I’m sure Whalberg would prefer you pretend those days never happened.

      • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

        Ahahahaa ^this so much.

      • cizzlen

        Lol

  • The Narrator

    But why?

  • jonzey231

    I really hope its called the HTC Two. It would easily be the simplest form of device naming of any company. As opposed to the plethora of galaxy devices.

    • PoisonApple31

      I wish they would just call it the M8.

      • gintoddic

        What does either M or 8 stand for?

        • The Narrator

          What does One stand for?

          • https://soundcloud.com/camnointros Neichi

            LMAO

        • PoisonApple31

          M8 = Mate /s not true but I tell everyone this.

    • Cael

      HTC One²
      All they had to do.
      or even the HTC One.5 would have been good.

      • Higher_Ground

        LOL 1^2 = 1, so it’s all good :)

        • Cael

          I didn’t even think of that. Yup, they can go all the way up to infinity with that exponent and it’d still be the One.

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

    What will they call it next year? The REALLY All New HTC One?

    • The Narrator

      The Next Big All New HTC One

    • Cael

      If they’re copying Apple then we’ll get the “HTC One with QHD display” in 2015 and then the “HTC One Air” in 2016, that is if they don’t go bankrupt after this year!

    • gintoddic

      No, “The really really all new HTC One.”

    • EC8CH

      You are assuming HTC will be around next year.

      • Robert Muldoon

        Clever girl

  • PoisonApple31

    I will refer to it as “The All New Pointless Black Bar With The HTC Logo One.”

    • Matthew Rebmann

      That was a mouthful.

      • aQuickBit

        Hey you never know…it’s right up there with “HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE” ;)

        • Cory_S

          That’s not too bad. Remember the “Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch”?

          • aQuickBit

            Oh god I totally forgot about that…you win, I’m done.
