HTC One outed days before official launch

Our ever reliable buddies at Evleaks, a Twitter-based rumour-busting account that is usually spot on, have revealed a picture of the HTC One in black. Before we reveal some specs, here’s what it looks like.

It kind of reminds of this, the recently launched BlackBerry Z10.

Shameful. Anyway, on to the specs and pricing. For US$300 (64GB internal memory) or US$200 (32GB), users can snap up this very Z10-looking HTC One, which according to HTC’s website is under a week away from launch. Outside of the launch date and an image of the device, all that is known is the 4.7-inch full-HD display and the 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU.

From the image though, we can see that it won’t be completely button free, unlike the Z10. We spy a Back and Home key on the bottom, as well dual-light sensors (or a flash?) on the top left, and the front-facing camera in the top right. We can also guess correctly that it’ll come with the latest Android, Jellybean (version 4.2). Check back in 19 February to see if we, and the rest of the leaks were correct.
