And here we have the “All New HTC One” aka HTC One (2014) in silver with AT&T branding, courtesy of @evleaks. Nothing else has changed. It looks just like the previously leaked HTC One (2014) press render in silver. No official specs are out. No release date has been announced. We are still waiting for HTC’s March 25 event for all of that.
How long before press renders of other carrier variants arrive? Tough to say, especially since only the AT&T model has stopped by the FCC thus far. You better not include the words “exclusive” and “carrier” in any part of this launch, HTC. But you wouldn’t do that, would you? (more…)
HTC is terrible at keeping secrets. Information about the company’s HTC One follow-up has leaked ad infinitum: press renderings and benchmarks have come at a constant clip, ruining whatever surprise HTC had in store for March 25.
Today, the leaks continue with purported images of an HTC One (2014) in the wild. It appears to be the silver variant of the device, revealed unofficially last week. (more…)
With an unveiling date of March 25 set for the All New One, the only thing HTC needs to focus on is hyping up the phone until everyone can’t wait to line up and buy it. If this first “teaser” video for the device is how they plan on doing it, then we wish them luck. (more…)
HTC may have skipped this year’s Mobile World Congress, but that doesn’t mean the company has completely forgone announcements. Yesterday, in addition to teasing a much more exciting smartphone, HTC detailed two mid-range devices bound for overseas markets, the Desire 816 and Desire 610. The company also unveiled a philanthropic initiative that aims to leverage the unused computing power of smartphones for scientific uses. (more…)
Leave it to HTC to take the first shot following Samsung’s unveiling of the Galaxy S5. Through their official Twitter account, HTC made the bold claim that Galaxy S5 owners will soon experience buyer’s remorse come March 25, when the new One is announced.
While we love the competitive nature and fighting spirit of HTC, they should at least get all of the facts straight before going after the competition. The Galaxy S5 doesn’t go on sale until April, so no one will own the device by March 25. In other words, they can’t possibly have buyer’s remorse.
Update: Apparently, HTC sent their Tweet before Samsung announced a release date, not following the announcement as I suggested. Either way, the Tweet is wrong and and looks semi-ridiculous. See you on March 25, HTC! (more…)
AT&T announced today that their variants of both the HTC One and LG G2 are ready to receive updates to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.” The HTC One update was sort of expected, but I’d be lying if I said I was expecting the G2 to see the same joys this early.
To check for the update on your HTC One, head into Settings>About phone>System updates. On the LG G2, head into Settings>General>About phone>Software update. (more…)
HTC told us earlier in the day that they had received “technical approval” on the Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” update for both the T-Mobile and AT&T variants of their 2013 flagship, One. Within the last hour, the T-Mobile variant began receiving that update.
If you own the HTC One on T-Mobile, head into Settings>System updates to try and pull it.
The build number appears to be 4.19.531.10 and is 563MB in size, according to the screenshot above.
Cheers ba11sy and @BigBlueBrock!
HTC might have missed the 90 day mark they set for themselves back in October of 2013, but the One update to Kit Kat and Sense 5.5 has received technical approval from both AT&T and T-Mobile. According to HTC, the OTA updates should begin rolling out shortly to all users, so be on the lookout. (more…)
