All New HTC One leaks yet again in video ‘review’

Whatever scary threats HTC has been sending to people who have received developer editions of The All-New HTC One, it clearly isn’t working. While there are still two weeks to go before its official launch, The All-New HTC One has leaked yet again in a short video “review” of the device that shows off its basic build. More →

The potential best Android phone of the year is also the worst kept secret of the year

The All New HTC One, or HTC’s 2014 flagship smartphone has appeared in a variety of new leaks over the weekend, with the company also releasing a third teaser video for the handset to build up anticipation. In the third video clip, HTC hints that the new smartphone will have an even better Ultrapixel camera, without actually revealing what’s new about it. More →

The All New HTC One Dual Cameras

New leak shows All New HTC One’s dual cameras up close and personal

There seems to be nothing that HTC can do to stop detail pictures of The All-New HTC One from leaking out. @evleaks has now posted a new leaked picture that gives us our best look yet at the new flagship device’s dual rear-facing cameras, which HTC will likely tout as a major differentiator when it unveils the device on March 25th. Cameras have become a hot point of competition for many smartphone manufacturers, especially after Nokia threw down the gauntlet last year when it unleashed the Lumia 1020′s amazing 41-megapixel camera onto the world. HTC has long ago stopped playing the megapixel game, however, and leaked specs for The All New HTC One indicate that HTC is referring to its dual-camera setup only as an “UltraPixel” camera. @evleaks’ closeup of The All New HTC One’s cameras follows below.

All New HTC One Details

Confirmed: Device that may be 2014′s best Android phone will have 2014′s worst name

Confirmed: Device that may be 2014′s best Android phone will have 2014′s worst name

HTC is very, very good at making phones. Unfortunately, the company is not as good at selling phones and its struggles continued in February as sales declined more than 36% on-year to $238.5 million.

HTC is also quite bad at naming things. If you cringed at names like “BoomSound” and “Zoe” when they were announced last year, you’re not alone. And it looks like HTC plans to carry forward its tradition of awful names when its brand new flagship smartphone is unveiled later this month. More →

How not to leak a top-secret flagship smartphone

How not to leak a top-secret flagship smartphone

On Monday, a leaked video appeared showing The All New HTC One in all its dual-camera, metal unibody, BoomSound-equipped glory. However, the leaker made a grievous error while showing off HTC’s new flagship phone: He left the International Mobile Station Equipment Identity (IMEI) number and his own on-screen email address exposed long enough for HTC to identify them and now HTC is going after him with guns blazing.

HTC’s unreleased ‘All New HTC One’ fully exposed in 12-minute hands-on video

The All New HTC One (also known as the HTC M8) has starred in a lengthy pre-release 12-minute hands-on video that was recorded in mid February and published on YouTube on Sunday. The video, posted initially by YouTube user GadgetReviews, has been pulled, but a copy of it has been reuploaded since. The clip reveals that the handset will indeed pack a microSD slot, a feature not present in previous HTC flagship devices including the HTC One. “Expandability is the key to our consumers,” HTC’s Jack Yang told CNET in a late February interview, hinting that the HTC is reconsidering microSD support for its devices, and it looks like the feature is almost confirmed for the new HTC One.

HTC Desire 816 Price Rumor

HTC may shock the world with its smartest move in years

HTC may shock the world with its smartest move in years

In Barcelona’s Mobile World Conference, there was something that the industry has not seen in three years: Buzz about HTC. In particular, there was speculation that HTC was gearing to launch a 13-megapixel camera phone under $300 in Asia. According to GSMArena, Chinese media has now pegged the launch price of the HTC Desire 816 at 1,800 yuan, which comes out to just a bit under $300. Diving this low just might be the shock therapy that HTC needs. The old strategy of pricing premium models above $650 and “budget” phones around $500 stopped working a long time ago. More →

All-New HTC One leaks yet again, this time in AT&T press shot

There will be very little mystery to the All-New HTC One when it launches next month. In addition to the multiple leaked pictures we’ve already seen, @evleaks has now posted a leaked press shot of the device that clearly shows AT&T’s branding on the rear casing. Other than that, the leaked image pretty much shows us everything else we’ve already seen about the All New HTC One including its dual rear-facing cameras, on-screen buttons and light sensors that have been shifted over to the right-hand side of the phone next to the front-facing camera. HTC will formally unveil the All New HTC One on March 25th. Reported specs for the device include a Snapdragon MSM8974 2.3GHz processor, a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, an UltraPixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac connectivity, and Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0. @evleaks’ picture follows below.

HTC One Best Smartphone 2013

Still don’t believe 2013 was boring? A year-old phone just won GSMA’s ‘best smartphone’ award

Still don’t believe 2013 was boring? A year-old phone just won GSMA’s ‘best smartphone’ award

In a piece published earlier this week, we said that 2013 was a remarkably boring year for smartphone lovers. After a surge of exciting innovation that began in 2007 and lasted for several years, 2013 saw smartphone makers, for the most part, run out of good ideas. With the constraints imposed by battery limitations and consumers’ demand for slim handsets, there was only so much vendors could pack into their phones, we suppose. Still don’t believe 2013 was a boring year? Consider this: At the annual Mobile World Congress trade show, the GSMA just named a year-old handset the best smartphone of 2013.

In other words, the smartphone industry peaked in March last year. More →

Video: HTC teases next-gen HTC One with the worst spot I’ve ever seen

HTC is primarily known for two things: Amazing hardware and godawful marketing. Although HTC’s head honchos last year vowed to step up the company’s game in the marketing department, the ads we’ve seen ever since they made that pledge haven’t been an improvement. In fact, they may have been even worse.
