This week flew by, with news coming at us from all angles. The big news, to HTC’s dismay, is that thanks to more leaks than the Titanic had after hitting the iceberg, we pretty much know exactly what to expect from the HTC One (2014). While the young man handling the camera and the device probably had little idea that a team of lawyers were on their way to his house after he hit “publish,” he gave the world its first true look at what HTC will more-than-likely unveil on March 25. Wherever you are, kid, we hope you hear our appreciation.
Besides all of the hype regarding the upcoming flagship from HTC, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still in the headlines, as it just went through the FCC on its way to Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.

To top off the madness, the big juicy rumor floating around is that Google has selected LG to make a “Nexus 6″ smartphone, as well as the upcoming Nexus smartwatch. How’s that for a hypebeast?
