New HTC One Will “One Up” Galaxy S5 Brags HTC

The All New HTC One will one up the Samsung Galaxy S5 according to a tweet sent by HTC using the Unpacked hashtag at the close of the Samsung Galaxy S5 announcement event.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 with a larger display, fingerprint reader, heartbeat sensor and a 16MP camera that can record 4k videos today. The new Galaxy S5 is water-resistant and dust resistant and but uses a plastic design like previous Galaxy S models, which could leave an opening for HTC.

The HTC M8 or All New HTC One will arrive at an event in late march where we expect to see the New HTC One with a metal design and a slightly larger screen.

HTC and Samsung are major rivals in the Android smartphone space as both companies fight for consumer dollars and loyalty. The HTC Tweet is not surprising, but it will be interesting to see if HTC can deliver on this promise.

Samsung is pushing for a fast Galaxy S5 release date, that should land in the U.S. within two weeks of the HTC One event. Carriers are already talking about the Galaxy S5 as one retailer starts taking names.

HTC announced the HTC One ahead of the Galaxy S4 last year, but delays pushed the release dates into a head-to-head that we could see take place again this year.

Here’s a look at how the all New HTC One compared to the Galaxy S5 rumors. The devices should offer a similar array of features to attract consumers, but HTC offers a metal design that Samsung’s new plastic back won’t touch in the eyes of many users. It’s unknown if HTC will offer a water-resistant device like the Galaxy S5.

Consumers responded to the HTC tweet hoping for a waterproof smartphone and one with a bigger battery. One user claims the New HTC One could be the device that tempts him away from the iPhone.

The New HTC One passed an important hurdle in the U.S. clearing the FCC which means the New HTC One release could come very soon after the announcement in late March. The new HTC One is rumored to arrive in colors similar to the iPhone 5s.

    Funny that. The HTC One although announced before the S4 ended up being the better phone. I know what the sales figures are… I have both phones. The HTC One is phenomenal and am excited about the M8.

    My son got the S4 and I got the HTC one and by far the HTC one has a more quality build. It was worth the price. Boom sound with front facing speakers is a distinct advantage over the S4. Plastic vs Metal….I get compliments on the looks of the phone….while the S4 looks like all the rest.

    I love HTC but the 4 ultra pixel camera is garbage. I got my one on launch day and I can say that I almost never take pictures with the phone. It a battle between purple hues that almost smudge out the image in low light or fuzzy, pixels that you really can’t blow up. My HTC sensation took amazing pictures and u always got complements. But if the don’t fix the camera on this new phone I’m out.
