We’re sure most of you guys know by now that all the products we see in the market today are typically the result of multiple revisions and changes made over the course of its development. After all we doubt many products kept its original design, and the HTC One is no different. Released back in 2013, the HTC one was an interesting handset and featured an aluminum build which was a nice change compared to the use of plastic. It featured front-facing stereo speakers which made for a nicer experience when watching videos on your phone, and packed an interesting Ultrapixel camera which did away with the megapixel race that other OEMs seemed to be aiming for.
Well thanks to the folks at Engadget, they have managed to get an exclusive look at the HTC One prototype which has finally broken cover after about a year. Needless to say apart from the back of the device, the front of the prototype is nothing like the final product as it does seem to be missing the stereo speakers. The photos also show that HTC had long planned on shifting the home button to the right side, a somewhat controversial move, although in the final product the HTC logo replaced the multitasking soft key. The prototype also appeared to be a little fatter due to the screen protruding slightly. In any case if you’d like to check out the rest of the photos, be sure to hit up Engadget’s website for the details!
