HTC is expected to unveil its new smartphone the HTC One (aka HTC M7) and latest version of Sense on Tuesday February 19th, but the company has done a poor job of keeping it a secret. Not only has HTC been relentlessly teasing fans with trailers and images, but a picture of a white model was leaked earlier this month. On Monday, the first "leak" was followed by an image of a black model. The black model's display shows the date "February 19" and the location "New York". The leaked image of the white model showed the same date but with the location "London". This is because HTC is expected to unveil Sense 5 and the HTC One smartphone on the same day in both cities.
