HTC One Two launch date seemingly confirmed: March 25

HTC One Two launch date seemingly confirmed: March 25One of the big will-they-won’t-they questions surrounding this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) pertains to the inevitable HTC One successor. Will the Taiwanese launch it in Barcelona?

Probably not, according to a save the date issued by the ailing manufacturer yesterday. The chaps will officially hold a launch event on March 25, a whole month after MWC, and it’ll almost certainly be for the HTC One Two.

Unsurprisingly, the image relayed by Engadget doesn’t give a whole lot away, other than hinting that something will launch on March 25 – as vaguely predicted by @evleaks a few weeks ago.

Simultaneous events will supposedly go down in New York and London, all but confirming that we're looking at a flagship-level device.

Certainly nothing is mentioned by name, but we’re hoping the Taiwanese opt for something other than HTC One Two (or HTC One Two Buckle My Shoe, as Pondlife has been calling it).

Possible alternatives include the HTC Schwarzenegger, HTC Stallone, or – perhaps more realistically – HTC Two.

Rumoured HTC (One) Two specs include a 5in 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (with microSD, thankfully), and KitKat Android 4.4.

That doesn’t sound massively impressive, but the Taiwanese will supposedly look to wow customers with, er, on-screen buttons, and two camera sensors on the rear for increased snappy goodness.

Call me cynical, but it doesn't look too good for this thing going head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S5, which of course launches in just a few days at MWC.

In any case: HTC One Two launch on March 25 (probably). Only five weeks to go…

Well, the One had one of the better cameras of 2013 - while keeping the actual file size nice and small - which is good for sharing and limited storage (the Lumias' pics fill up 16GB in no time).
But if a better camera can stink against Samsung's offerings is questionable. Sony tried and failed.

I found that surprising of Sony, Jan. I really expected them to be up there with the best camera offerings, but I think they let themselves down massively. Nokia are still pretty peerless with their stuff, but as you say, the One was a unique take on how to deal with low light etc.

Yep. The Z1 is only amazing in that it shoots stuff in near darkness where dedicated cameras struggle. But in all other situations
the camera stinks - even compared to the iPhone 5/5c. Compared to the 920/925/1020 or 1520 the Z1 is a toycam. Not even worth comparing.
