First Clear Press Shot of HTC One (M7) Revealed

HTC honcho Peter Chou may have flashed it at an event, but design of the HTC One (formerly known as "M7") flagship handset, has been largely a mystery, until its press-shot got @evleaked (it's a verb now). Pictured above, the handset appears to have borrowed the best design elements of its older phones, while adopting a slick round-edged rectangle shape, with chrome highlights lining its edges, much like the iPhone 5.

Also seen in the picture are felt-touch back and home keys, the front-camera, ambient light sensors, and symmetric-looking ends. The home screen displayed checks out with elements of HTC Sense 5.

The HTC One will be launched at a company event ahead of MWC 2013.
