HTC One Wins Best Smartphone Award at Computex 2013

The acclaimed design of the HTC One has earned it yet more praise.  It took home the award for Best Smartphone of 2013 last night at the Computex electronics show.  The annual event exhibits and honors a range popular electronics in Taipei, Taiwan, the home of many international manufacturers including HTC.

Lauded for its striking design and intuitive interface, the HTC One has been the flagship device and best-selling smartphone for HTC this year.  Some reports indicate it has accounted for as much as half of HTC’s sales.  It features an Ultrapixel camera, HD video, and stereo front speakers.  Under the hood, it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and an Adreno 320 GPU, all making for a powerful multimedia experience.

HTC announced the victory on their official Twitter account, along with a picture of them accepting the award.  The HTC tweet also included a playful jab at Samsung, their closest competitor, sparking a brief and public back-and-forth between the two brands.

While the HTC One continues to accumulate rave reviews, the manufacturer is reportedly making progress on another device that will perpetuate its success: an HTC One Mini.  Expected to be available in August, the HTC One Mini will have a marginally smaller screen and scaled back specs.  Once again, it will be in direct competition with Samsung, who unveiled the Galaxy S4 Mini in April.
