Today HTC finally revealed the new HTC One, a massively updated follow-up to the original HTC One from last year. This new device hasn’t forgotten its roots, it still made of the same premium materials as its predecessor. It’s also curvier, more refined and even faster than its predecessor. It also comes loaded with Sixth Sense, an upgraded version of the software the HTC puts over top Google’s Android operating system. In this case, users can expect Sixth Sense to run over top Android Kit Katt.
