Storage expansion went out of fashion over the last two years. Fortunate, then, for those of us wanting to take our music / audio book / photo collection everywhere, that HTC's upgraded One will see a return to microSD storage on its flagship series. Against trend, the new One also looks like it'll have an identical footprint to last year's model. In a lengthy video leak from GadgetReviews -- now down, but mirrored elsewhere -- we get to see that unibody build from a few more angles (including a closer look at that brushed finish) and catch some few software tweaks to the Blinkfeed news stream (
another swipe to the left apparently opens up more options). However, what does that secondary camera actually do? We're getting increasingly impatient about that March 25th reveal date.
Update: That extra swipe on Blinkfeed was already there on the most recent HTC One software build.
