Rogers Outs “All New HTC One” Early, Official Specs Confirmed

htc one (m8) rogers

There isn’t much more we can say about the “All New HTC One” at this point – it has been leaked more than any phone in history. It will officially be announced tomorrow by HTC, but who cares at this point what HTC has to say. If you want this phone, then you probably already know all there is to know. You really do. All you should think about now is when you can buy it from carriers outside of Verizon. That should be at 1PM Eastern, the same time Big Red plans to sell it, as far as we know.

But if you needed one last HTC One (M8) post to run through, an official spec list probably isn’t a bad one to check out. Thanks to Canadian carrier Rogers, we have just that. 

According to Rogers, we are looking at a 5-inch 1080p display (Super LCD3), UltraPixel camera (Duo Camera), 5MP front camera, 32GB of internal storage, expandable storage up to 64GB, 21 hours of talk time, a weight of 160g, a thickness of 9.35mm, and Android 4.4.2.

None of that is new, but hey, it’s the real deal now.

    will this be a world phone just like the Nexus5 ? i.e. have the same radio bands that the Nexus5 has?

  • Jeff

    This seems like a phone I would really love to get normally, but I guess that just tells me how happy I am with my Moto X that I’m not even tempted by this phone. If I ever have issues with my Moto X though, I wouldn’t mind snagging one of these.

  • BustNHeadsDaily

    I havent seen one comment about the build quality this go around.
    My HTC One was coming apart at the seams straight out of the box.
    I really hope they fixed that.

  • JoshHenry

    I care about what HTC has to say at the announcement. I mean, the phone isnt really official until HTC shows it to the world. And It will have way more coverage then. I think only us tech geeks that brows these tech sites have taken advantage of the leaks of the New HTC One. The average consumer knows nothing about it.

  • iamme

    i played with it today…..its fast as hell…im still no HTC fan though

  • NemaCystX

    Looks like HTC’s signature rounded edges are coming back. The previous One had too much of an industrial design but it was truly unique because of it

  • 994196003

    Rogers took it down “Unfortunately, the phone you are looking for is not available for purchase on http://www.rogers.com. “

  • Manny Avila

    The phone on the left is missing the “HTC” logo on the front bezel, wish it was like that!

    • M3D1T8R

      Yeah, it has a cool feature where it removes the bottom bar only when you tilt the phone more than 45° to the side. (/snicker)

    • jwildman16

      I was wondering about that, too… On-screen logo? :/

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

    Why can’t they put a better than average battery in their phones…

    • Ianto

      The HTC One had incredible battery life. The M8 has the same size battery in it as the S4 with the same size screen. The battery life on this will beat the S5 just like the M7 did to the S4 last year.

  • chris125

    Still just using the ultra pixel naming which makes me believe it it still going to be 4mp. Hope that other camera helps because it will be interesting with the ffc being higher MP than the rear shooter.

  • Pratik Holla

    So, does this mean the 16gb wont be sold? If so thats great news if the 32gb version is the standard.

  • Mark

    In the render on the left, the HTC black bar isn’t there, but in the right hand render it is there, which is it. And 4 “UltraPixels” isn’t enough to stay competitive in the camera environment these days.

    • onlygoodtime88

      its 5mp and 2mp which is 7 on the back cameras. and 5 on the front

      • M3D1T8R

        Same 4.1 “UP” as before plus new 2mp on back I believe. 5 on front.

  • Orion Pax

    This phone looks pretty good but I guess my question is… What will HTC do with it next year to keep it competitive with Samsung and LG (and possibly Sony) besides adding the Mini and Max again.

    I guess I’m kinda looking ahead since this phone has been leaked for the longest… It feels like the phone had already been released.

  • Maxim∑

    HTC has nothing left to announce, no need for a press conference

  • moe

    Resolution=Ultrapixel

    Really?? Give us a damn number

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Well that is the “Official” branding for the camera since last year. it’s the tech blogs that figured out the resolution.

      • Jimmy Baez

        Or just wait until tomorrow…

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          I mean we already know it’s 4MP and 2MP for the cameras on the back.

          • Ianto

            No we don’t.

    • onlygoodtime88

      its 5mp and 2mp on the dual back cameras = 7mp.

      and 5mp on the front camera

      • alex drum

        where did you hear that? I have heared it will be a combined 16mp and also that it is 4.1mp and 2mp… where do people keep coming up with numbers?!?!

        • onlygoodtime88

          watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cumo08eViHk

          i got tips from a friend about the camera

          • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

            When does he say the megapixel count? I’ve watched the video 3 times, and he never discusses it other than calling it the Duo.

          • onlygoodtime88

            not in this video read my comment under the video i got the info from a friend

          • alex drum

            wait… so you referred me to a video that doesn’t talk about the MP count… instead i’m supposed to read your comment? I pose my question again. where do people keep getting their numbers? There is so much he said she said on this topic… all that i have gathered on the megapixel count is that everyone ever knows a guy who knows a guy who knows what it is… but all the numbers are different. I feel like there is one guy who actually knows but he doesn’t have a computer so he has to play a game of telephone with 100 people and only the last 10 people get to post the numbers online.

          • onlygoodtime88

            just wait tell tomorrow if you don’t believe

          • M3D1T8R

            I’m around 88% confident I’m correct with it being 4.1 + 2, based in the multitude of things I’ve read and researched. Will know for certain in 12 hours anyway so at this point don’t bother stressing. Unless you really need huge res photos for some reason, in which case you’re probably going to use a real camera anyway, all that really matters is the final photo image quality. Wait and see about that in actual reviews.

          • Kris

            I have read every story and every post on this phone and I have not seen anything saying the camera is what you say so just shut up.

          • M3D1T8R

            Hi, “Kris”,
            You either haven’t read every story and every post on this phone, as you say you have, or your reading and comprehension skills are lacking. In the recent German video review he seems to say 4.1MP and 2MP (possibly 10MP for the second, hard to tell). I don’t speak German, I just looked up how to pronounce German numbers and replayed those parts dozens of times trying to figure this out. Incidentally 4/2 would makes sense in conjunction with other info I’ve read on similar dual sensor cameras, which use a 2MP secondary sensor. Telling me to shut up is highly inappropriate considering I’m only
            freely sharing what I’ve found from all the research I’ve done. You could have just waited a few hours until a little later on today when we will likely know all, but you chose to troll instead. Have a nice day.

          • M3D1T8R

            Dual 5mp on the back, really? Well that’s a surprise. And no wireless charging I guess, too bad. Otherwise as expected, looks good. Still wish the battery was 3 or 2.8Ah at least but 2.6 is an improvement on last year anyway and should be good for most usage.

    • The Narrator

      It’s gonna be crap

  • Blue Sun

    Ohh those wacky Canucks.

    • Weber

      I’m sure they’re sorry.

      • Blue Sun

        Haha. True.

  • http://droid-life.com/ Rthvk

    There goes my 1000 word well-researched post where I pieced all this together based off of leaks. :(

    • JRomeo

      do you know why they list the bands so differently on different devices? on this device the wireless bands are GSM:850/900/1800/1900 and HSPA+: 850/1700/1900/2100 and LTE: 2100/2600….. i’m comparing this to the Nexus5 bands, which are GSM:850/900/1800/1900, CDMA: 0/1/10, WCDMA: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19, and LTE: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41………………… WHY are they not in the same format? the HTC One is LTE 2100 and 2600….. but the Nexus5 has 1 / 2 / 4 …etcetera……. so why are they listed as 1 digit bands on the N5, and 4 digit band frequencies on the HTC One?

  • vernSL

    Check out the new Fitbit update. Adds new HTC One stuff.

  • pyro74boy .

    I will wait for the keynote tomorrow but unless the specs are different then what this says my money is still with the S5. I will give the New HTC One a fair chance and compare side by side with the S5 before I take out my money.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Both are decent devices. I’m sure you’d be satisfied with either one.

      • pyro74boy .

        My issue with HTC is that they have been known for making phones with bad battery life and the two high-end Android devices I had with HTC I had to charge the battery sometimes 3 to 4 times per day on not very heavy use. I can go 3 to 4 days plus on very heavy use on my Samsung Note2 and have gone well over a week and a half on light use. I could NEVER do that on any of my HTC phones. Everyone I have been talking with who owns the current HTC One can only go a full day before it needs to be plugged into the wall. Battery performace is very important to me.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          With the revamp of Sense UI last year the original ONE had great battery life. Took me through the day no problem. So I can only see it getting better with a bigger battery this year.

          When I switched to my Nexus 5 battery life wasn’t as great though.

          • pyro74boy .

            I’m going to do my own side by side test with both the new HTC One and the Samsung GS5 before I take my money out. I really love the Note2 and if these phones are not as good then I will save my money for something better. I want to also see what the reviewers have to say about these two phones as well.

          • chris125

            You also have to remember this has a larger screen though with only a 300 mah increase in battery size.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Larger screen with the same 1080p resolution. It won’t matter.

          • M3D1T8R

            Very slightly larger, same resolution, probably some battery life tweaks so probably similar battery life on a per Ah basis. Probably 4 1/2 hrs typical screen on time.

          • Kris

            And you need to remember this is the same size battery in that was in the S4 with the same size screen and resolution minus all the samsung crap in the background.

  • Nayners

    Still can’t get over that bezel… Valuable space, wasted.

    • BMC123

      can you guys quit it with this bezel thing? its really not a big deal at all. the .2 mm of blackness isn’t going to make you miss anything

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Yup it’s really not that serious at this point. Couple days of using the device and that’s they last thing you’ll notice.

        • The Narrator

          Tried to use a phone other than my G2 and that’s not true, at all.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            We’re not comparing phones. It’s just the black bar. If you like your phone keep it.

      • Mike Baustian

        I think they are more concerned about the big chin, the wasted space for the HTC logo that no longer houses the capacbuttons of last years model. I tend to not care because it’s a good looking phone either way…but its much more wasted space than .2mm

        • michael arazan

          HTC just worried about the Logo, which they don’t need because they are the only manufacturer with 2 big speakers on the front of their phone. I really hope this comes in GPE and to verizon this time.

      • Tm

        That bottom bezel is probably the largest bezel of any of the current flaships. HTC is using onscreen buttons without the benefits but only the negatives.

    • skin

      Agreed.
      There is no point in on screen buttons if you still have a giant chin.

      The chin is huge because it has the speaker, then the htc logo black bar, then the on screen buttons. If it had the buttons next to the logo, that would be better, but the chin still has the speaker below it.

      So for the height of the device, we have a smaller screen than the competition because of the htc logo bar and speaker grill. AND we get a smaller USABLE screen because of the on screen buttons.

      As far as the edge bezels go, those actually look big too. I think HTC made them a little wider so that the phone doesn’t look too all and skinny. Because it is so tall from the useless HTC logo bar.

      Maybe the HTC logo really does something that they will announce tomorrow. Like maybe if you push it 3 times it will order a pizza or something. Or maybe you can swipe across the logo bar.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    That color looks lighter than the Verizon variant…then again the pics aren’t that great…. either way, I’ll see this badboy in stores tomorrow.

    • Marikel

      I don’t think they’re the same color. I think they’re doing a space gray type of thing like the iPhone 5S and a silver variant.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I do remember the earlier leaks having that “Dark Grey” and the Lighter “Silver” one so you’re probably right.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “expandable storage up to 64GB” . . . No support of that 128GB SanDisk BEAST?

    • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

      The back of the Verizon box for the HTC One says 128GB.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        hmmm… Okay I’ll go with that.

        • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

          Neither the box nor the Rogers spec list have the battery capacity or megapixel count though. I’m frustrated that those haven’t been leaked yet.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            lol at this point you have less than 24 hours to find out.

          • Mike Baustian

            Last i heard they call it 16mp, but the 2 cameras have different MP counts and through some magic of software trickery can combine into one, 16MP image with good low light results, and possibly with a focus shifting option similar to a lytro

            Not at 4mp.

        I hate when I have to claim sarcasm.

  • Alex Boro

    C’mon HTC. I’ve never seen a phone leak THIS badly. Worse than that iPhone 4 leak back in 2010. You killed every ounce of hype I had for this phone. HOW DO PRESS RENDERS COME OUT OVER A MONTH BEFORE LAUNCH? Anyways, looks like a pretty good phone. Defiantly a better option than the Galaxy S5.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      This is similar to how albums leak once they hit the trucks. Them launching Day 1 means it needs to be in stores early, and once it leaves the warehouse it’s over…leaks pour out.

    • Tony Byatt

      Don’t understand the “leaks killing the hype” thought…

      The tech community are the only ones who know of the leaks and we are the minority…

      Leaks only give us a clearer picture of whether a device is a buy or pass. Minds become more set through leaks, official reviews, and/or in-store demos…

      Leaks in and of themselves are not a pass or fail test for the actual device…

    • NemaCystX

      I think these leaks have helped HTC get tons of press. Not to mention word of mouth online and social networks. People’s curiosity would get the better of them as they would want to know what all the hype is about and be interested in either buying or seeing the phone in action. HTC use to leak their devices intentionally in the past but the One (2014) has been the most leaked, they are getting desperate with them losing options as their revenue steadily declines they need all the publicity they can get to get people excited with other devices stealing the headlines that (in my opinion) don’t deserve as much press as they’re getting, *cough* S5 *cough*

      I think at some point later this year I might invest in one of these since i’ll be paying full price on the devices in the future anyway

    • Sqube

      “Now that I know everything about the phone, I’m no longer interested in it.” Oh. Okay.

      All jokes aside, it’s only people like us who know all about this phone already. Most people buying this device are going to find out about it via commercials (if HTC has the good sense to do any) and posters in their local VZW/AT&T/T-Mob/Sprint store.
