Taiwanese electronics firm HTC had recently unveiled the flagship HTC One smartphone in London and New York City.

 The smartphone sports a super LCD 3 display with pixel density of 468 pixels per inch which is one of highest display resolutions in the industry. Even iPhone 5's retina display is no match for it.
