HTC has added another accolade to its collection. Its flagship smartphone, the HTC One has been awarded the Gold Medal in Design and Innovation from Computex Taipei 2013. This follows the GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications Association) Award it also won for Best New Mobile Device or Tablet.
The award is the highest honour in the Computex d & i awards, organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Concil (TAITRA) in conduction with iF (International Forum Design). Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou personally handed the award to HTC.
A total of 254 product entries were submitted for consideration this year.
Ben Ho, HTC CMO said, “For the new HTC One to win yet another international award, it demonstrates how HTC’s proven design capabilities, both in product design and user experience, is bringing a new perspective to the industry.”
“We will continue to innovate and provide consumers with the highest quality products,” he continued.
The HTC One was awarded the GSMA’s “The Best Mobile Handset, Device or Tablet,” and also awarded Tech Radar’s “MWC’s Best Phone”; “Best in Show” and Mobile Geeks’ “Best Smartphone” awards.
The new flagship is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7Ghz quad-core processor, and features the all-new HTC Sense UI layer with HTC Blinkfeed. The LTE-capable phone comes with 2GB RAM, 32/64GB capacity and features an all-new HTC UltraPixel camera with HTC Zoe, BSI sensor, OIS, f/2.0 aperture. Sound quality is superb with HTC BoomSound and Beats Audio.
Its full metal body and zero-gap construction holds the crisp 4.7 inch full HD display (468PPI). Beautiful to look at, hold, touch and use.
Launched in Malaysia in April, the new HTC One is priced at RM2,299 for 32GB storage and RM2,499 for 64GB storage in both colours, Stealth Black and Glacial Silver.
