HTC may have appeared to skip the low-end market during its release of the HTC One series at Mobile World Congress, however, it seems they have a low-end phone up sleeves for release late in the second quarter. The device is going by the codename ‘Golf’ and is sure to come with a compelling price given its specs that were taken from EXIF data from a test photo. 3.5-inch HVGA (320×480) Display

Today Telstra has confirmed it will be getting 2 of the new HTC One series phones. They are keeping it under wraps to which two they will pick and I know I’m certainly curious about which One’s they could be. HTC announced 4 versions of the One series of devices at MWC. The choices are the One X which is HTC’s flagship phone with a Quad-Core NVidia Tegra 3 processor and HD screen, then you have the One XL which is HTC’s One X, but for the LTE and dual-core market. NVidia haven’t yet managed to incorporate LTE into their[Read More...]
HTC have told a few sites, including recombu, that the Sensation series of devices will not be receiving Sense UI 4.0, instead it will be a ‘lite’ version dubbed Sense UI 3.6. The ‘lite’ version is said to include many of the visual aspects and performance increases as Sense UI 4.0 as they were developed side-by-side, however, HTC are obviously going to use the new version of Sense as a selling point for the new One series of devices. So to owners of the Sensation, Sensation XL and Sensation XE: although you will be getting the latest and greatest in[Read More...]
A very clever developer over at XDA (fuss132) has worked out a way to port the Beats Audio advanced equaliser software, normally exclusive to some HTC phones, to any rooted phone running Gingerbread. Beats Audio is an advanced software equaliser producing more clarity and natural sounds, however the improvement will be dependent on the quality of the music and the headphones used. This is especially exciting news for any HTC Sensation owners jealous of the Sensation XE and XL released soon after with Beats Audio. To add Beats Audio to your phone you’ll need to be running Gingerbread (some reports[Read More...]
Telstra confirm they’ll be launching two HTC One devices, we suspect it’ll be the One S alongside the One XL
Telstra, in an email to Delimiter, confirmed that they’ll be launching not one, but two HTC One series devices. We already know that the first will be the HTC One XL as they’ve already opened expressions of interest, however, the second remains a mystery. We’re going to speculate that the second device will be the HTC One S mainly due to it being a mid-range device with fairly high-end specs and suits Telstra’s range of devices better than the One V. We’re inclined to think that the One V will head to Vodafone as it will be seen as the[Read More...]
I was just browsing the HTC Australia website when I noticed the date and location on the HTC One X was different to that of the other devices. It says “Mon, Apr 2 – Sydney” — after taking a look at the trusty ol’ calendar, the 2nd of April is indeed a Monday. Will we see the HTC One X launching on that date? Quite possibly, yes. What carrier will it be launching on? Our bets are on Optus, as they’ve been giving a few hints and teases over the past few days.
If you were wondering how the menu button would appear on HTC’s new range of ‘One’ series devices, be confused no more. MoDaCo have taken some screenshots that show that the menu button will appear as an on-screen button when the app needs it (ie. a majority of the time). Most of the feedback so far seems to be that this is the stupidest implementation ever and we tend to agree. Why couldn’t HTC just add the button to the capacitive line up below the display? Surely this would have saved screen real-estate. What do you guys think?
Telstra: HTC Sensation, Velocity 4G to get Android 4.0 in early March; Galaxy S II, Xperia Arc S in early April
Telstra have recently updated their software updates page on their website. New additions include the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Sensation And Velocity 4G to go ahead this month. The Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Update has been handed over to Telstra for testing and they’re expecting an early April release — we’re thinking it’ll be late April. Telstra are also hoping to received the ICS update from Sony for the Xperia Arc S in the middle of this month for an early April release. Props to Telstra for keeping us and their customers in the loop[Read More...]
Now that HTC have got all their announcements out of the way, it’s time for all the rumours, build-ups and confirmations to start happening in regards to which carrier will be getting which devices. First off it’s the HTC One X going to Optus. They’ve already teased the device on their Facebook page and the device, along with the rest of the ‘One’ series, is listed on HTC Australia’s website. There’s no release date or pricing yet — we’ll wait for an official announcement. Next up is the One XL, which is the LTE variant of the One X. The[Read More...]
HTC have finally announced their brand new ‘One’ series of Android smartphones at Mobile World Congress. After a fair few leaks and a build up by HTC themselves, the One X, One S and One V are now officially a part of the HTC family. All devices run Android 4.0 with Sense UI 4.0 and are expected to launch in various markets starting in April (we have local launch details coming up soon). For now, specs: HTC One X HTC One S HTC One V CPU 1.5GHz Quad-Core Tegra 3 1.5GHz Dual-Core MSM8260A 1GHz Single-Core GPU (ULP) GeForce GPU[Read More...]
Greek website FullGSM managed to scrape these photos of the upcoming HTC One X when HTC accidentally leaked them onto their own website a little too early. The One X is going to be announced tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and just might be the phone of the show, seeing as Samsung is a no-show with its Galaxy S II successor. The specs list is one to behold and starts a new era of high-end Android smartphones. 4.7-inch Super LCD2 1280×720 Display (w/ Gorilla Glass) 1.5GHz Tegra 3 (4-PLUS-1) CPU 32GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, DLNA[Read More...]
Telstra’s first shot at a 4G smartphone, but is it really worth it? Telstra have been marketing their new 4G network like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, and to some of us it really is. 4G brings a whole new level of wireless data speeds — we’ve seen up to and beyond 35Mbps down and 15Mbps up. While Telstra have been selling 4G modems for a few months now, they’ve only recently announced this, the HTC Velocity 4G, as their first 4G smartphone available to consumers. It’s also important to us, because it runs our favourite OS, Android.[Read More...]
Pocket Now look to have scored themselves a press render/image of the upcoming HTC One X (codename Endeavor). The device is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress alongside the One S and One V. Specs-wise the One X is looking to kick some butt: 4.7-inch 1280×720 Display NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU @ 1.5GHz Android 4.0.3 w/ Sense UI 4 HSPA 850/900/1900/2100MHz 8MP / 1.3MP Cameras 1GB RAM 16/32GB Internal Storage If HTC play their cards right, this just might be the phone to bring them back into the black. Maybe if they partnered up with Telstra for some[Read More...]
