Press renders for the all new One from HTC are making the rounds quite heavily, and if you haven’t been paying attention, there is apparently two cameras along the backside of the device. While a few may joke about HTC raising the EVO 3D from the grave, I personally find any speculation about 3D camera support hard to believe, as new creations shown off at MWC this past week are now making headlines.
A partnership between an Israeli-based startup called Corephotonic and Qualcomm introduced a dual-sensor setup at MWC, with one lens being telephoto and the other being wide angle. The idea is to give smartphones the ability to not only take great pictures, but then to allow users to zoom in on these pictures much better. Let’s face it, zooming in on photos taken on smartphones isn’t great on most phones, so improvements on this key feature would be quite welcomed. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
The FCC briefly posted documents for the “All New HTC One” this afternoon before pulling them for whatever reason. That’s unfortunate, as we can almost always find dirty little secrets hidden in these documents about that device that have yet to surface. For now, we’ll have to go with what Engadget found, as they were the ones to uncover them.
According to their findings, this particular model of the HTC One (2014) or “M8,” is headed to AT&T with LTE bands of 2, 4, 5, 7 and 17. If HTC plans to live to see another day, they will undoubtedly bring the phone to all other carriers at the same time, so don’t take this as a sign that AT&T will have some sort of exclusive first dibs. The FCC listing also showed that there is NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi on board. Again, there is probably more info in there, but with the docs now gone, we can’t dig for more. (more…)
