Over the weekend, a system dump of the HTC One (2014) was performed by a member on XDA. As we have seen with previous system dumps, the world now has access to all of the wallpapers that HTC has preloaded with the device. Thankfully, they are actually pretty good papers. (more…)
Thanks to @evleaks and his never-ending pursuit to leak all things “All New HTC One” or HTC One (2014), we are getting our first taste of the accessory line for the “M8.” He also mentioned the possibility of a new Google Play Edition of this 2014 HTC flagship.
In two images posted to his account yesterday, we are seeing a new flip-style case that comes in four colors: black, red, green, and blue. The case stands out – or at least comes off as being unique – because of its hole-filled front sides. As you can see from the images, the holes are being used to show important information (like time and weather) with the case closed. We aren’t sure if the display will constantly show this information or if you’ll need to press the power button to see it. I’m not sure I see the point if the power button is required, though maybe this case can save battery life by only showing a minimal amount of display. It’s an interesting idea, I guess. (more…)
The 12-minute “All New HTC One” leak from Sunday was good and all, but it still failed to tell us much that we didn’t already know about the phone. I actually find it fascinating that after all the leaks of the HTC One (2014), we still don’t really know the official spec list or anything about how HTC really plans to use that dual-camera setup. And you know what, today’s latest leak is much the same, although we do get a look at a benchmark. (more…)
An FCC listing for the “All New HTC One” or HTC One (2014) on AT&T showed up ever-so-briefly last week before being pulled. That listing has now returned, along with a somewhat similar listing that also shows AT&T LTE bands (could be unlocked or T-Mo variant) and another for Verizon. You may recall last year when HTC failed to launch their flagship on Verizon, leaving it as the only major carrier in the U.S. without it for months. I don’t think we’ll see the same misstep this time around. (more…)
Poor, HTC. They created this entire series of teaser videos to introduce some hype into their unveiling of the “All New HTC One” aka HTC One (2014) on March 25, and yet we have already seen the phone in a full 12-minute clip thanks to some young kid in Illinois. We still don’t know all there is to know, though, because well, that 12-minute clip was extremely painful to watch and light on details. So HTC is going to continue to plug away as if that video leak during the Oscars never happened. (more…)
The other night, on DL Show episode 51, I joked that we’d know everything about the “All New HTC One” (or HTC One 2014) long before its official arrival because there would be at least two or three unofficial reviews of the phone. In other words, HTC is terrible at keeping their devices a secret. Sure enough, we aren’t but four days removed from that statement and a 12-minute video review or overview of the AT&T model from some kid in Schaumburg, IL has appeared on YouTube (if you can call this a review). That’s right, we have an entire 12-minute session with HTC’s new flagship a full three and a half weeks ahead of their planned unveiling event in NYC. (more…)
Earlier this morning, a press render of the HTC One (2014) showed up for AT&T, and after worrying HTC was planning some type of carrier-exclusive device, we no longer have to think about that. Leaker extraordinaire, evleaks, just posted up this press render of the all new One with Verizon branding. (more…)
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…)
