March 24, 2014 - Written By Christina Cooper

It’s the day before the All New HTC One announcement, and there has been no shortage of leaks and rumors. It appears as though we might be seeing rumors right up to the launch. Today alone we’ve seen exclusivity rumors, accidentally posted official retailer webpages and even leaked benchmark stats. The All New HTC One is definitely the worst kept flagship secret of 2014.

We’ve just now seen yet another hands on video for the All New HTC One. This time, it’s from TechSmartt. It’s more professional than the previous videos and it wasn’t shot in a poorly lit bedroom. The video compares the All New HTC One to the original HTC One, in an effort to highlight the differences between the two devices. The overall video is well put together and it shows a lot of the device’s features. While we’ve seen and heard about most of the features showcased in the video, it’s nice to see a higher quality video where serial numbers aren’t clumsily thrown around.

The video shows off the camera, benchmarks and battery life. The hands on video also discusses the difference between the design of the device. From first glance, the corners of the All New HTC One are more rounded, the screen is a little bit bigger and the solo rear camera that was present on the original HTC One has grown to two cameras on the All New HTC One. The All New HTC One features a 5-inch screen, compared to the original HTC One’s 4.7-inch screen. The camera in the All New HTC One has also been updated a bit. The front facing camera has been upped to a 5-megapixel shooter, and now features a “selfie” mode.  The rear facing cameras have been updated to get even better low light pictures.

The All New HTC One is better at battery life, as well. The new device comes with a 2,600 mAh battery that lasted the reviewer about 5 hours while doing everyday activities, including tweeting and watching videos. The All New HTC One also comes with a MicroSD card slot so you can store more on your device. You’ll be able to get the All New HTC One in metal grey, silver, black and gold. So, there you have it, folks. At this point, we’ve seen basically everything that the All New HTC One has to offer. HTC is still having their announcement event tomorrow afternoon at 1 pm EST in New York City. Take a look at the video below if you’d like to watch the hands on video for yourself.
