Watch how HTC builds the One

HTC details various One manufacturing techniques in new video

HTC has generally always built excellent quality hardware and its latest flagship Android phone — the HTC One — seems to be no exception. The company has just released a short video which details some of the One's manufacturing processes and they look pretty impressive.

We go hands-on with the HTC One

The video, published on HTC's global YouTube account over the weekend, features the company's creative director, Daniel Hundt, and the senior director of manufacturing and design, Jethro Liou, describing certain aspects of the manufacturing process. It's naturally a little over the top and includes way too much use of the word "seamless", but the manufacturing processes shown off actually look pretty interesting.

Among the techniques include an "electrochemical etching process" directly on the One's surface that creates a "nanomatrix structure". There's also a custom bolt cutter used to provide natural curve to the casing.

The "no gap" construction means there's no visible gaps or slits in the case design. A diamond cutter tops things off, used to create the bevelled edges around the One.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
