This is the one mini for 2014.
It is not the flagship device from hTc.
Well still that big wasted space with HTC logo.
Jesus, they never learn.
I like HTC, but with my LG G bezel I can not take a huge step back.

The rest of us have moved on.
And large pixels mean "nothing?!" Maybe to twerps who know nothing about photography and cameras....
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2014Actually it was copied from a Sony prototype, with two buttons in the left bottom corner, but ... moreWhat's hilarious is that people keep whining about Apple....
Apple implements new features which in most cases work well.
Like the fingerprint sensor. Are they the first? No, not really. But are they the first with a simple, elegant and actually working implementation? Absolutely yes!
Even the notification bar implementation by Apple is more elegant and useful than the cluttered bar on Android, which I hate and always hide.
Why would I trade up from the HTC One? If I did, would I notice the difference? I thought this was last year's models processor. Not enough step change from the One from my perspective! Not exactly a fail but not a pass either...
1-Non Removable Battery
2- Below entry level camera resolution, don't tell me anything about that frk'n superior sensor, it matters NOTHING!.
3- Softkeys!!!, I don't understand what the f..k wrong with those designers, why they following google's footsteps?
Hardware buttons are allways better, but for them not.
Yeah, keep it up so you can buy your own phones with huge amount of discount.
They should remove the htc logo on face of the phone and put the android buttom down to reduce bezels then should be better then htc one 2013
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2014Apple stop making the design copyied in 2007 after first Lg PradaActually it was copied from a Sony prototype, with two buttons in the left bottom corner, but nevertheless, it was copied. Not many Apple fans are willing to admit this, even though it is already widely known that Steve Jobs was inspired by Sony's product quality (at the time) and design simplicity.
Like MacBooks being inspired by Vaio's.
The difference is when Apple copies, everyone says that it was inspired by this or that. But when another brand is "inspired" by Apple - its blatant copying.

HTC should have just removed the 'HTC' completely with the base bezel from the face of the phone, since the controls are now on the screen. Moreso, the 'HTC' logo is at the back of the phone already! They should learn that they MUST NOT write 'HTC' on the FACE of their mobile smartphones. Even Apple iPhones (which are the most regarded and most costly) don't have any name or logo on the face! I just wish HTC goodluck this year...
:( i dont like design at all ! but we have to wait and see good images
design wise, not much improvement, or perhaps nothing except for color, lining pattern, bezel, but hay good design such as this,iphone,Sony Zseries does not have to change much, aka Porsche or AustinM.DB- .
Something is weird with these pictures.
I really doubt it's the real HTC design, and if it, it would be a joke, since things are off and don't line up.
Also, while the "champagne" color works well for the iPhone, it's just awful as applied here.
I just HOPE it's fake... otherwise I'll stick with my 2013 One :-|
everyone's complaining about the side bezels and the placing of the front logo. there is also the unequal speakers and the extra camera. also the unremovable battery and lack of sd slot.
elie, 19 Feb 2014Htc one better design huge bezels for 2014 flagship so bad plz wake up htcYou know wassup..To bad not the other.
giorat23, 19 Feb 2014Message for Samsung and HTC: STOP copy ALL of Apple please, be more original. Yor are NOT an i... moreDoes that mean that Apple need to stop copying Googles Android software then?? iOS 7 is just Jellybean, even copied the drag down menu shortcut on iOS 6. Apple do nothing but copy then claim its a brand new feature created by Apple.....Some fanboys just need to be quiet! And i don't understand how HTC have copied of Apple, if you mean the colour scheme then apple should never release a black or white or any coloured phone as there will have been one made before!
I will wait to 25th for the original view for the new htc one for sure should be better then this picture
