14:30 EDT Wednesday, April 24, 2013

CINCINNATI (Business Wire) -- Cincinnati Bell, the region's leading provider of communications services for homes and businesses, is adding the stunning new HTC One® to its 4G Android™ smartphone lineup. With a 4.7" full high-definition display, zero-gap aluminum body design, and a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, HTC's new flagship smartphone features live streaming on the home screen and advanced imaging technology for an unbeatable viewing and camera experience.

“We believe the new HTC One will have broad appeal, especially with consumers who use a smartphone as their primary means of staying in touch with the people and information most important to them,” said Mike Vanderwoude, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Markets at Cincinnati Bell. “The HTC One sets a new standard for smartphone design and we're excited to make it available to our customers.”

Key features of HTC's new flagship smartphone include HTC BlinkFeed™, HTC UltraPixel Camera, HTC BoomSound™ and HTC Sense® TV™:

  • HTC BlinkFeed transforms the home screen into a single live stream of personally relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and lifestyle updates, news, and photos and eliminates the need to switch between multiple applications and web sites.
  • The HTC One's UltraPixel camera features a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture and a breakthrough sensor that gathers 300 percent more light than traditional smartphone camera sensors to deliver outstanding low-light performance and other photo and video improvements.
  • HTC BoomSound introduces front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated amplifier. In addition, high-definition recording uses advanced dual microphones and audio processing to capture clean, rich sound worthy of high-definition video footage.
  • HTC Sense TV transforms the HTC One into an interactive program guide and remote control for most TVs, set-top boxes and receivers. Sense TV makes it simple and intuitive to see what's on and find favorite shows.

The HTC One from Cincinnati Bell is available for purchase through its website,, and in Cincinnati Bell stores.
