  • Updated HTC One ‘M8′ leaked, set for release end of this month

    Every new month calls for a new HTC One. If it’s not a brand new colour then its a new size. It’s a pattern one can expect: the HTC One is a brilliant smartphone and its maker should capitalize on that. New leaks detail an update to HTC One called the HTC M8, which is a way better name than HTC One 2. Besides subtle design changes, one striking difference of this update is the M8’s small bezel. The pictures suggest that the HTC M8 will have on-screen navigational buttons with a 5″ display rather than its predecessor’s physical...

  • HTC One with dual-SIM, microSD slot unveiled in the UK, scratches LTE

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? HTC has been mulling around with its popular flagship, the HTC One, since its release February this year. The high-end Android smartphone has stolen the hearts of the tech community and has since taken on different forms including a blue variant and a US$4420 golden One. Today though, the Taiwanese company unveiled the dual-SIM HTC One with upgraded storage options. HTC One dual SIM is available for £494.99 (US$809) and will come with a microSD card slot with expandable storage up to 64GB. Similar to the HTC One Max It’s rear shell...

  • KitKat coming to Play Edition HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4

    While the slow rollout of Android 4.4 KitKat eventually started making its way down to Nexus devices in the last week, it has recently been announced that Google’s latest mobile operating system will be coming to the Google Play editions of Samsung’s Galaxy S4 as well as the HTC One. Android KitKat was announced 31 October and, as per usual, was initially introduced to those devices most loyal to Google. The Nexus 5, Google’s latest flagship, got first dibs which was followed by other Nexus devices such as the Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) — some people are still waiting,...

  • HTC One, Droid DNA to get KitKat update by 2014

    HTC device owners have been eagerly anticipating the release of Android KitKat (4.4) for their beloved phones, and now owners of the HTC One and Droid DNA have something to cheer about: a release date. In a spate of tweets HTC USA has confirmed that KitKat will come to the HTC One by the end of January, followed by its arrival on the Droid DNA by end of Q1 2014. HTC USA also addressed concerns that HTC One owners on US-based service provider Verizon had about updating to Android 4.3 — saying that the update would be a “two-step process”,...

  • The $4420 Gold HTC One unveiled and there are only five in the world

    HTC loves bling. Handing out a Golden record to publicize artists’ sales achievements is so old school. Today, rock stars get golden phones instead. Behold the Gold HTC One — a smartphone that’s actually made of real gold. More specifically, its front and back are made up of 18ct gold with a MOBO logo etched on the back. There will only be five of these bad boys roaming the world, each will set back the lucky owner US$4420. Unless you’re the winner of MOBO’s Best Newcomer of 2013. The Gold HTC One is produced in celebration of the 18th...

  • Leaked pictures show possible gold-coloured HTC One

    There has been a leak. One that captured a gold-coloured HTC One. It’s actually only specific parts that have been found to be gold-coloured but as Engadget notes, the leak seems to be pretty legit. It’s noted that the leaker, a Sina Weibo user, has quite a good track record and that the hand-written marks on the phone seem very authentic, as they’re similar to the labels that would be used by the phone’s designer. The colour of one’s phone is a big deal. At least that’s what the recent trends have shown us: from Apple announcing its new...

  • HTC One gets a facelift with MoDaCo.Switch

    As Engadget reports, MoDaCo.Switch has been made available to the public for beta testing. This firmware makes it easy for you to switch between two versions of Android on the HTC One. Why? Best of both worlds, and because you can. So if you’re using HTC Sense and would rather switch to Google’s Play edition, you can now do so. MoDaCo.Switch is simple, easy and you don’t have to risk losing data when flashing between the two ROMs. Secondly, it’s awesome seeing how someone managed to find a way of sharing apps across two different types of software. It all depends...

  • HTC One Mini and Max coming real soon

    The HTC One was the best non-iPhone of late 2012, and now there are two new sizes to look forward to. First up is the HTC One Mini, a little 4.3-inch nipper with a 1.4Ghz CPU. The HTC One Max takes size a little bit more seriously though with a six-inch display. The fulls (known) specs for both phones follow below, care of Mobilegeeks: HTC One Mini Specs 4.3-inch 720p LCD display Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Dualcore@1.4Ghz 1GB of RAM 16GB Internal Memory HTC One Max Specs 6-inch 1080p Super LCD display 3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 800@2.3Ghz 2GB of RAM 32/64GB Internal Memory 3200mAh Battery There’s even a sneaky snap of the HTC...

  • HTC’s Desire 200: sleek, meek and official

    HTC just released the specs of the Desire 200. No pricing is yet available but given the specs, this little guy’s for the smartphone entry-market. No, this is not another HTC One (or two). Instead it’s meant for the lower-end smartphone consumers. Apart from having a name sounding like a skanky perfume, the specs leave much more to be desired. It’s presented by a 3.5-inch, 320 x 480 LCD display which is to...

  • HTC M4 is a stylish, underpowered version of the One

    First there was the HTC One (model name: M7), now there’s the HTC M4, the not-so-mini version of the One. If HTC is going to take away anything from Samsung, it’s that creating a similar but less powerful device with the same look and interface is a good thing. A great thing, thinks HTC as the M4 is a 4.3-inch screened device with a 720p display and a 17oomAh battery. With no release date except for a possible Q2 launch (which is hearsay, according to phonearena.com), the HTC M4 is going to be have to seriously impress to warrant...
