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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
