HTC isn't bothering waiting for Mobile World Congress to launch its latest Android flagship the HTC One. It's doing it on Tuesday, and seems quite happy for a steady supply of leaks to emerge ahead of time too.
The latest bit of publicity starring the device codenamed the HTC M7 is a nice glossy press shot giving us our first sight at what the One will look like in black.
And surprise, surprise, it's @evleaks playing the middleman again, just like with most of the other HTC One-flavoured leaks we've covered recently.
There aren't any new specs or features to talk about in this latest publicity snippet, just the high-quality press shot. In black, as we've already mentioned.
So what's to be said about it? Well, not much that hasn't already been said. The Sense UI homescreen makes another appearance, though this time showing the location as New York as opposed to London (those being where the twin HTC One launch events are taking place on Tuesday).
That apart, it's worth noting the relative lack of visual difference between the black and white shells when viewed from the front, and similarly between the HTC One in general and most of its competitors.
That's an inevitable downside of large, edge-to-edge displays with their slender bezels: there's very little room on the front of the device for serious visual differentiation. Then again, given the decision to give the HTC One a name already used to describe HTC's entire Android smartphone range, maybe that's fitting.
