We are introducing game-changing technologies that push the boundaries of smartphone accomplishments further than ever before,” said Jon French, Vice President, HTC MEA. “The new HTC One gives our consumers what they want: easy access to everything that’s important to them. Every aspect of the new HTC One, from its aesthetics to its user interface and groundbreaking technology, was designed because we listened to our consumers, and to the market.”
