HTC M8 Prime 2014 begins to take shape

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. Mr Gordon tweeted out a message saying that a well known online ‘leaker’ was incorrect about two of his leaks, leading everyones favourite online leaker Evan Blass, the man behind @EvLeaks to take to Twitter to lay his[Read More...]

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? Well, it’s made an appearance in Taiwan in living colour apparently ahead of an imminent launch. The photos, more of which are available on Mobile01.com shows the phones retail packaging, rear and front, as well as comparison shots to a red HP laptop. But, that’s not all. It appears that a launch for the red version of the HTC One (M8) could be sooner than we think. HTC has also apparently commissioned a 3D render of the HTC One M8 in[Read More...]

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

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...]

Rumour: Plastic HTC M8 to launch at lower price point

The HTC One M8 is a premium smartphone, with a fully aluminum unibody, top notch specs and a premium price tag to match.

Nexus 8 rumours persist with latest speculation pointing to a HTC built tablet

Nexus 8 rumours persist with latest speculation pointing to a HTC built tablet

Rumours surrounding a HTC built Nexus 8 being released this year in place of a third generation Nexus 7 are continuing to mount, with Digitimes reporting that Google has approached the Taiwanese manufacturer to build an 8″ tablet to be released in the coming months. The report suggests that HTC, rather than Asus will be making the tablet, as Google looks to revamp the design of the tablet. Google was apparently looking to involve HTC in the development of the original Nexus 7 tablet, but HTC was too mired in their own efforts to promote their flagging smartphone business to[Read More...]

HTC One (M8) — Review

Is the HTC One (M8) your new Mate? HTC has a long and proud history in the mobile industry.

There’s been some trying financial times of late, and last years HTC One was described as their last ditch effort to save the company. But that wasn’t the case.

Ausdroid Podcast 108 – An Abundance of Phils

Welcome to episode 108 of the Ausdroid podcast! With special guest Phil Nickinson joining us this week, we had to work out the best way to address both Phils. I’m not sure we succeeded on that front.

Unlock your HTC One (M8) in moments with S Off from Firewater

Unlock your HTC One (M8) in moments with S Off from Firewater

This will come as a surprise to no one… HTC lock their devices to prevent users who don’t know what they’re doing from messing with the system and doing silly things that could lead to bricked devices. On an HTC device, there’s two kinds of lock these days. First is the locked bootloader. In a nutshell, this ensures that the phone only boots a signed version of the operating system. Unlocking the bootloader is widely considered necessary to obtain root access, and is definitely required to load up a custom recovery. For many, an unlocked bootloader is all that’s required,[Read More...]
