The world’s acclaimed Smartphone designer HTC Corp, Taiwan has come up with a range of phones that are equipped with the ultimate music, camera and gaming features. The design has been the answer to the tough drought that the company experienced last year. The shares dropped drastically and as a result investors released all its shared in fear that it may finally loose the battle. Even the partnership with Beats didn’t seem to be a successful enough one. However with the HTC EDGE, the company hopes to get over the period and give competition to big players in the world market like Samsung and Apple Inc.
The revolutionary HTC EDGE powered by quad core nVIDIA Tegra 3 beast that has been launched this year would combines variety of features including:
· On-screen software buttons
· 5-pogo-pin setup for a speaker dock
· Green / amber notification LED only
· No microSD slot
· 1800 mAh battery
· MicroSIM slot
· Super LCD display type
· Stereo microphones for noise reduction
· FM radio
· Current test units run Android 4.0.3, should be upgrade to 4.0.5 by launch
The previous version of the same Smartphone included:
· Quad-core 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 processor
· 4.7-inch display with 720p resolution
· Android 4.0 with Sense UI 4.0
· 1 GB RAM
· Backlit 8 MP rear camera with 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens
· 32 GB internal storage
· Slightly over 10 mm thick
· 1.3 MP front-camera
· HSPA+ 21 Mbps support (bands 850, 900, 1800, 1900)
· Beats Audio
· Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
Thus it looks like HTC has been able to pack features that hardcore android fans would expect in their gadget. There can be a complaint of a missing MicroSD slot but the 32 GB memory itself would be satisfactory enough for the experiences needed.
The launch was done in Barcelona MWC meet. This seems to be a crucial enough venture for HTC Corp challenging the biggest of players. Only customer response is all is between its success and another bad year.
This HTC EDGE series has three basic models under its belt: the One X, One V and the One S. These phones feature the latest version of android software by Google. With the latest Image Sense technology the photographic qualities of the smart phones are at par with the average digital cameras that includes a fast autofocus feature and enable low light shooting option. Along with this the HTC EDGE also features an effective photo sharing software.
The device is made better with a fast processor and the hard and resilient metal cases calls for greater durability and resilience. The previous year’s Beat technology is still in use and works well with integrated online radio, music and catchy games.
The company seems to have learned from the mistakes that it did last year. This year their focus is on an innovative design and its only time that will speak of its success. However the product looks challenging enough.
