HTC’s much awaited bounce back device, the HTC One, was supposed to be launched this month in India. However, the latest news suggests that device will not be out till next month.

The device has a 1.7 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor accompanied by 2GB of RAM. The device comes with 16GB and 32GB internal memory options.
