Back in 2013, just a few months after HTC released the HTC One, the company announced a Mini version called the HTC One mini. Now, the time has come that there are new rumors about the HTC One’s successor and accompanying which, the HTC One M8 Mini is also rumored.
Dubbed the HTC M8 mini, evleaks has published a short specs list:
- 4.5 inch 1280 x 720 display.
- Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.4Ghz.
- 1 GB RAM
- 16 on board storage
- SD card slot
- 13 MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat
- Sense 6.0 with on screen buttons
Would the HTC M8 Mini interest you?!
Sure enough the first major change we see is the addition of the on-screen buttons and the removal of dedicated buttons in the body. However the resolution of 1023 x 1820 does raise a red flag since earlier leaks suggested a different higher resolution.
Analysts say that this is a genuine leak but manipulated a bit. What do you think?!
According to a report coming out of Taiwan, HTC might have just negotiated with Google to bring the next Nexus Tablet. While rumors about Asus and LG continuing the Nexus line were strong, this one too comes from a strong source.
According to Focus Taiwan, citingCommercial Times, “HTC has won the bid for manufacturing a high-end Nexus tablet, which will ship sometime in Q3 2014. It’s unknown if HTC will be creating a successor to the Nexus 10, the Nexus 7 or perhaps something new altogether”
Would you want a Nexus Tablet by HTC?!
What we know is that it probably wont be a 3D camera since that technology is almost dead, also it doesn’t look like a fingerprint scanner on the HTC One Max. According to analysts, the best bet that they can place is that the second camera would be used for low light shooting capabilities to enhance such photos. This is also backed up by the fact that there are dual-LED lights on the back so we know that HTC want’s this right real bad.
It is a somewhat an early “stealth launch” – Sprint isn’t yet actively pushing the update and subscribers won’t be getting notifications until February 11 and distribution will proceed in batches. However, you don’t have to wait for the update to appear in the notification bar, you can manually check for it and trigger the download right now!
Who would be the next US carrier to do this!?
While unlocked versions might receive the refresh earlier, there are already reports of it being sent out– American carriers will not lag that much behind. A new report claims that this update is in the hands of major US carriers as of now as they test these version before a rollout. So if you are rocking an international or a carrier specific HTC One, keep checking that Notification drawer!
If you have missed the news we posted yesterday about leaks of a 3D printed HTC One 2014 edition that leaked then we advice you go through that first.
The report claims that Chein, the VP and his conspirators had been planning to leave the company and start a design firm of their own. They are charged under the crime of secretly showing off highly confidential internal projects – from the upcoming Sense 6.0.
He is also accused of showing fake expense reports by his investors if the leaks weren’t enough. Although there will be proceedings in court, it would be difficult to get out of such allegations.
The makers of this 3d printed model claim that an insider tipped them on the dimensions of this device which they later 3d printed. The screen around this time is rumoured to be a tad bigger coming in at 5 inches. The speakers are expected to be the same Boomsound branded ones with capacitative buttons at the bottom.
We expect more details as we near the launch date so drop by!
It’s holiday season again and that time of the year when there are a lot of gifts being wrapped. Let’s take a look back and see what this year meant for the smartphone industry and which one’s made it big. Here is a list of Top 5 Smartphones for 2013!
1. Apple iPhone 5s
While Apple would not have won a medal in redesigning this much similar-looking iPhone, it surely won all the attention, primarily because of it’s neatly tucked fingerprint scanner – a first on any commercially available mobile phone.
The 64-bit A7 processor is logically a major upgrade over the predecessor, but the bigger change is the M7 co-processor, which picks up data from various sensors even while the phone may be asleep. The iPhone 5s is everything you love, only much better.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Galaxy Note 3 is the pinnacle of Samsung’s line of large phones. It’s Samsung’s best effort by far. The Note line of devices brought phablets (i.e., large-screened phones) to the masses, and none is more accessible than the Note 3.
Samsung managed to reduce the device’s footprint while increasing the size of the screen to a whopping 5.7 inches. The Note 3 is also thinner, lighter, and classier than ever, thanks to the faux leather back and tasteful chrome accents.
3. Google Nexus 5
Google bought a treat and well needed upgrade to it’s Nexus 4 and man does this phone offer the best bang for the buck! Historically the Nexus devices bring flagship level hardware at rock bottom prices but with the Nexus 5 you get even better.
he Nexus 5 packs in a bigger screen this time around – 5-inch Full HD IPS+, with Gorilla Glass 3.And yes, how can we forget Google’s promise of instant OS updates being rolled out for Nexus smartphones and tablets?
4. LG G2
The LG G2 is by far one of the best effort devices in terms of hardware and innovation throughout. The 5.2-inch display is by far one of the best that’s currently available on any available smartphone at 424 ppi.
The power key sits just below the camera at the back, with the designers assuming that a finger will naturally reach that spot when you hold the phone conventionally.
5. Nokia Lumia 1020
If you are extremely concerned about picture quality on your phone and need a camera replacement then here is a great option. Although you need to be a quick adapter to a new and quite-friendly operating system, the Lumia 1020 snaps photos like a boss!
With a 41 MP sensor with OIS, It offers full manual control over every aspect of creating a photograph such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, white balance and even offers the ability to manually focus the lens.
Do you have another best that we have missed? Comment below.
HTC is playing a very absurd contest this Christmas for which you need to follow them on their Instagram handle. Once you do that one needs to explain why its so bad in the caption with the hashtag #ReplaceMyGift, and tag HTC in the photo.
While this is relatively simple, HTC has cleared that nobody mention other companies or products in their posts. Apart from that it is also funny because no one wants to post their gifts as bad gifts online.
If you still want to try your luck, post on Instagram with the hashtag #ReplaceMyGift and check the rules below.
