HTC Announces the One (E8), a Plastic Version of the Company’s (M8) Flagship

A new HTC device was announced late last evening, the HTC One (E8). The device is being prepared for Asian markets, so Americans should not get too excited over its debut. The device is made of a polycarbonate unibody frame, making the device much lighter than the One (M8). In fact, the device features quite the little spec sheet, making it much like the One (M8), except minus the UltraPixel camera and metal body.  (more…)

Official: Verizon Adds Gold and Red HTC One (M8) to Lineup, Available June 5

We broke news on this last night, but Verizon has made the HTC One (M8) in Glamour Red official for June 5. They are also adding the Amber Gold variant, both of which will be available for $199 on 2-year contract. Both new colors can be purchased both online and in Verizon stores starting Thursday.

For a limited time, Verizon is offering $100 off any smartphone priced $199 or higher, so the One (M8) and its two new color variants are included. Of course, the $100 is only for contract signing.

The specs remain the same for the the gold and red variants, meaning you are looking at a 5-inch 1080p LCD display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM, 4MP (“UltraPixel” Duo Camera, Sense 6.0, and that beautiful all-metal body.

Be sure to read our HTC One (M8) review if you have not already.  (more…)

Here is Verizon’s HTC One (M8) in Red, Should be Here Thursday

Back in late April, we saw press renders for a red variant of the HTC One (M8) that was reportedly headed for Verizon. Today, we are getting a look at a real unit in the wild, with sources telling us that we should expect to see it in Big Red stores on Thursday, June 5.

There isn’t much else to say about the device, other than the fact that it is a shiny red color. This will carry the same 5-inch 1080p LCD display as the original One (M8) and Snapdragon 801 processor, plus 2GB RAM, Sense 6.0, and the 4MP (“UltraPixel”) Duo Camera.

Any takers?

HTC One Remix for Verizon Render Leaked, Shows Off Gorgeous Bezel With Tasteful Branding

The One Remix, also known as the One Mini 2 from HTC, has been rumored to hit Verizon’s network since the Mini 2 was announced earlier this month. Today, a render of the One Remix headed for Verizon was leaked thanks to @evleaks. Let’s have a look at what to expect, shall we?

The first thing we notice is that near the bottom of the device, there is a massive bezel. Usually, this is where HTC would place its logo. However, since this is Verizon, we see a tasteful Big Red logo smack dab in the center. It’s also safe to assume that there is an additional Verizon logo on the backside, as well as a 4G LTE logo. Stay classy, Verizon.  (more…)

Today, we have gotten word that Verizon’s One (M7) should be receiving that update later on this week.  (more…)
