HTC Teases BoomSound Speaker Update for 2014's 'All New HTC One'

By Gerald Lynch on at

With a disappointing showing at MWC 2014 this week, HTC's made no secret of the fact it's holding back the big guns for its own March 25th event. The so-called "M8" is likely to be the successor to the HTC One, and HTC is now ready to drip-feed teases ahead of its reveal. First on the agenda? BoomSound.

Now, to be fair, there's not much shared here. There's a detailed (and slightly annoying) description of the existing One's front-facing speakers, before a bleeped and censored overview of the "all new HTC One's" audio system. It's indicative of an overhauled sound system making its way to the new handset at the very least, but it's hardly surprising that HTC doesn't want to give too much away ahead of the grand unveiling.

It will leave that instead to the internet's army of ready leakers. So far we've heard rumours that the handset makes use of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, with a 5-inch 1920x1080 display, and dual rear camera sensors, allowing for selective focussing after a photo has been snapped.
