HTC M8 Mini to feature Snapdragon 400 SoC and 13MP Camera

The latest rumour from serial leaker @evleaks is that the Mini version of the upcoming HTC One followup – codenamed the M8 – will feature hardware that could be seen as a very minor spec bump from the current model. The upgraded Mini will see only minor updates from the current HTC One Mini which already features a Quad-Core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. With upgrades mainly going to the front and rear camera and an addition of microSD card slot for expandable storage and AC WiFi. https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/432297313558478848 Software wise, the new Mini[Read More...]

Rumour: HTC to produce a “high-end” Nexus tablet later this year

Rumour: HTC to produce a “high-end” Nexus tablet later this year

Rumours are circulating today that HTC is working on a “high end” Nexus tablet for release sometime later this year. A report by Focus Taiwan has stated that HTC Corp is said to have won orders for a high-end model in the Google Nexus tablet line that will begin shipping in the third quarter of 2014. We could be seeing a replacement Nexus 10 or, given the timing of previous launches, a replacement for the current 2013 model Nexus 7. This would be a boost for HTC, who manufactured the original Nexus One for Google and helped launch the Nexus[Read More...]

HTC says me too for wearable device – aiming to release by Christmas

HTC says me too for wearable device – aiming to release by Christmas

HTC has signalled its attention to enter the wearable market, where other Android OEMs such as Sony and Samsung have launched wearable devices within the last 6 to 12 months, even further back in Sony’s case. HTC Chairwoman, Cher Wang, has told Bloomberg that the Taiwanese company was making plans to release a wearable device by the holiday shopping season. In the interview, Ms Wang stated: Many years ago we started looking at smartwatches and wearables, but we believe that we really have to solve the battery problems and the LCD light problems. These are customer-centric problems. HTC plans to[Read More...]

Is this the first picture of the HTC M8?

Is this the first picture of the HTC M8?

This picture has just shown up on the Twitter feed of Russian site HTCFamily.ru. The photo shows off a phone which appears to confirm a number of rumours that have been circulating about the next HTC flagship – similar design and dual cameras. The photo shows off a dual lens setup on the rear of the phone – note no fingerprint scanner – with a dual LED Flash on the left of what appears to be the main lens. There’s a secondary lens mounted right at the top of the phone, but what this dual mounted lens setup is actually[Read More...]

Evleaks hints at a late March Launch for the HTC M8 in NYC

Evleaks hints at a late March Launch for the HTC M8 in NYC

It certainly seems that the rumours are beginning to ramp up for the potential launch of the HTC M8 and it seems that Evleaks have gotten its hands on a potential launch timeframe for the mysterious device. According to a Twitter post earlier yesterday, Evleaks who’s posts have been somewhat spot on most of the time, posted the following: https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/430100761783988224 This correlates with a post from Dan back on January 14, in which Bloomberg reported that sources close to a project consider the M8 to be the successor to the very popular HTC One, with a launch in late March.[Read More...]

Could this be the HTC M8′s on-screen buttons?

Could this be the HTC M8′s on-screen buttons?

We have heard rumours over the last few months that the new successor to the HTC One, the so called HTC M8, would come with on screen buttons instead of the usual capacity buttons the company normally uses for its device lineup. As per the picture above, it shows the standard back, home, and multi-tasking Android buttons. This design fits with the Nexus 5 and Motorola devices like the Moto X and RAZR line which also exclusively use on-screen buttons. Having on-screen buttons instead of capacitive buttons would be a welcome break away from the norm for HTC’s flagship devices.[Read More...]

Android 4.4 rolling out to European HTC One handsets now

Android 4.4 rolling out to European HTC One handsets now

The Android 4.4 update has been a very much anticipated release for owners of the current flagship device, and before an updated successor is announced in the next few months, users are very much wanting as many updates as possible before the device is relegated to the same fate that met the former flagship and it appears that European owners of the HTC One are beginning to get their first taste of Kit Kat on the HTC One now. HTC Developer LlabTooFeR advised that the Android 4.4.2 update – ROM version 4.19.401.8 – is beginning to hit handsets. It’s not[Read More...]

HTC M8 alleged to have on-screen navigation keys

HTC M8 alleged to have on-screen navigation keys

We’re starting to get a few leaks about HTC’s upcoming successor to their 2013 flagship, which at this stage is only known by its internal name, the M8. One of the more interesting points is that the M8 would have no capacitive buttons, and notorious tech leakster @evleaks has backed up this rumour in a tweet this morning. https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/427783956495609856 One of the few criticisms that we had of the HTC One was the odd-button layout, and that HTC persisted in using capacitive buttons, which added to the already large bezel size of the device. If @evleaks’ claim is true, HTC[Read More...]

Telstra begins testing data sessions on 700MHz spectrum with unreleased advanced HTC smartphone

Telstra begins testing data sessions on 700MHz spectrum with unreleased advanced HTC smartphone

In May of last year, Telstra – as well as Optus – successfully bid in an auction held by the ACMA for licenses to use bands in the 700MHz spectrum that had previously been used by the now defunct Analogue TV service. In that auction, Telstra successfully bid on 2 x 20 MHz (40 MHz) of spectrum and while the license to fully use the spectrum won’t come into effect until the first of January next year(2015), Telstra began testing out data sessions using the spectrum this week.
