HTC announces the HTC One (M8) Ace as the HTC One E8 for China

HTC announces the HTC One (M8) Ace as the HTC One E8 for China

The HTC One (M8) Ace has been made official for the Chinese market, and it’s had a slight name change, with HTC announcing the model officially as the HTC One E8 (because that’s much better). Hardware wise, the phone has a plastic shell as promised in the leaks and will apparently have similar specs to the HTC One M8. The phone is powered by a 2.5GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 processor, but specs are pretty thin from the Chinese HTC site. There does appear to be the same power-saving features that the HTC One M8 had included. The Duo-Camera is gone,[Read More...]

HTC One Wear to Rival the Moto 360

HTC One Wear to Rival the Moto 360

It was just last night that I was reporting on Android Wear and mentioning the LG G Watch and the Moto 360. I talked about how the Moto 360 appeared to be a superbly crafted piece of wrist bling. Rumour now has it that HTC will be releasing a smartwatch running Android Wear. What makes this interesting is that we know how impressive HTC have been lately with the design and construction of their devices so it is exciting to think of what they may do with a smartwatch. The rumour comes courtesy of tktechnews has runs on the board[Read More...]

HTC planning not one, but two higher specced phones for release later this year.

HTC planning not one, but two higher specced phones for release later this year.

The appearance of a render of the HTC M8 ‘Prime’ certainly lit a fire under rumours that HTC were working on a more premium version of their already quite high-end 2014 flagship, the HTC One M8. A new rumour that has surfaced today originating from 9to5Google says that HTC is working on not a single premium ‘Prime’ phone, but two, a ‘Plus’ and an ‘Advance. The existence of two phone models from rival manufacturers with premium features and a ‘Prime’ model name, was always suspicious, so a ‘Plus’ and ‘Advance’ seems more in-line with reality. The ‘Plus’ model will be[Read More...]

HTC One Ace leaks again – June 3rd launch with 13MP camera

HTC One Ace leaks again – June 3rd launch with 13MP camera

A cheaper, plastic HTC One M8? That’s the story of the HTC One Ace, which is running the rounds at the moment as the next big thing to come out of HTC. The HTC One M8, has a lovely design, but with a premium aluminium unibody, the price does tend to start climbing so the rumoured announcement of a cheaper and slightly less premium model appeals to a lot of people. Chinese site ifanr has come through with the latest leak and render of the phone, which they say will be announced on the 3rd of June. Specs of the[Read More...]

With all the talk recently of a HTC M8 Prime floating around, it seems HTC isn’t willing to sink all their eggs into one basket, with speculation surrounding an all plastic version of the HTC One M8, called the M8 Ace starting to circulate. The above render appeared on Chinese site ifanr, and shows off a much clearer version of the phone, which was first hinted at by @EvLeaks back in April. Alongside the red render, @EvLeaks has proven yet again why he’s considered the best in the leaking business, by showing off another render of the M8 Ace this[Read More...]

Rumours of a Galaxy S5 Prime are circulating, but so too are rumours of a similar ‘Prime’ version of the HTC 2014 flagship, the HTC One M8. The M8 Prime rumour has heated up over the last couple of days thanks to a tweet from Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC Corp, John Gordon or as he’s known on Twitter @urbanstrata.

HTC One M8 appears in red, live pictures and renders available.

Thinking the HTC One (M8) that appeared last month with Verizon branding thanks to @evleaks in red looked good?

HTC makes the One Mini 2 official – no Duo Camera in sight

HTC has just announced the HTC One Mini 2 over in London and if you were after a high-end, but miniaturiesed version of the HTC One M8, you’re about to be disappointed. HTC has relased the scaled down version of the M8, and when scaling down size, they also down-scaled the specs. The One Mini 2 comes with a 4.5″ qHD (That’s right 960×540 resoltion) 720P display powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. There’s better news for those of you who weren’t sold on the HTC Duo Camera, with HTC including a single 13MP rear camera[Read More...]

Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 names purportedly show up in Chromium code review

Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 names purportedly show up in Chromium code review

Google might be getting a little sloppy in their security, at least where leaks about upcoming Nexus devices are concerned. After showing the Nexus like code-name flounder in the Chrome bug tracker last week, overnight the names Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 have shown up in a Chromium Code review. Take this with a massive grain of salt, but the code review, which was found by SmartDroid.de shows a diff between a new and old version of something called ‘adb_client_socket_browsertest’ with the old version mentioning the Nexus 8, and the new version showing the Nexus 6. It’s probable that the[Read More...]

HTC One M8 appears in Blue

The HTC One M8 was released in Gunmetal Grey, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold, and there’s also been rumours floating around about a pink version being released, but EvLeaks has overnight shown the M8 in Blue. The original HTC One ended up with both Red and Blue variants during its product cycle, so the Blue is not unexpected. Whether we actually see the different colour variations in Australia is another matter, with HTC generally not releasing them here. But, we love choice so if the Blue – or the pink – is right up your alley when, or if HTC[Read More...]
