ZTE has announced a new smartphone for its native China that really is one for the spec junkies. The 6.44-inch display is 'only' 1080p, but everything else gives cause for excitement. It packs the latest Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB of RAM, upto an incredible 128GB of on-board storage and a pair of 13MP cameras. That's right, front and back.
With all the focus – and the pictures – having been on the Gunmetal Gray HTC One (M8) during yesterdays launch events, it's easy to forget there are two other colors available. While Silver is already in stock, the gold seems more elusive at present. Carphone Warehouse in the UK says that orders for the gold phone are expected to be delivered by April 7.
The new HTC One (M8) is upon us, and depending on where you live you might even be able to buy one already. Our full review is a great place to learn more about HTC's latest flagship. But if you've still got burning questions, you'll want to head over to the Android Central forums, where Phil and I — with devices in-hand — are answering your questions on the M8.
Samsung has been throwing a little shindig down in Australia where it has officially announced the new Galaxy S5 for launch there. Pre-orders will go live tomorrow, March 27, and an outright purchase will cost $929 ahead of launch on April 11. Pre-orders will be taken first in the Samsung Experience Stores in Melbourne and Sydney.
A quick heads up for our LG G2 owning friends in Canada that a KitKat flavored update looks to be pushing out now. Reported by MobileSyrup, Bell and Rogers customers are starting to see a 635.99MB update to Android 4.4 arriving on their devices.
The New HTC One (M8) is pretty stunning on the outside, but what about inside? The folks at iFixit have got their hands on one and done their thing with it. Besides exposing all the nerdy parts inside, it also exposes a pretty poor outlook for anyone who might ever hope to carry out some DIY repairs.
Well how about that. Just like Samsung's Galaxy S5, the new HTC One (M8) includes a "powered by Android" message when you first switch it on. The actual "Android" logo appears a little smaller than on the GS5, but nevertheless it's prominent and very noticeable each time you power the device on. Chances are if you're buying a new HTC One today, you'll know you're getting an Android phone.
Just in case you somehow haven't seen this phone yet, it's the new HTC One. Also known as the M8. It's one hell of a phone. And, of course, it comes in a box. And because it comes in a box, we shall be forced to "unbox" it, by which we take it out of the box, show you what's in the box and then continue on our merry way.
There is, however, one wrinkle here. In addition to the usual in-box items, such as a charger and a SIM tool and earbuds and papers with words on them, this UK version of the HTC One also comes with a sleek TPU case. So there's that. Anyhoo. Loads more HTC One to come today. Stay tuned.
Today, after weeks of speculation and online leaks, the new HTC One — also known by its codename "M8" — is official. And in some countries the device has gone on sale immediately on launch day. But if you're thinking of picking up HTC's latest aluminum-clad smartphone right off the bat, you may need to think about swapping out or resizing your current SIM card first, as the new HTC One uses a nanoSIM.
If you've already picked up your HTC One in the United States — or plan on doing so in the next few days, you might notice that the EXTREME Power Saving mode is missing from your shiny new M8. Meanwhile, folks outside the U.S. already have it on their phones. There's a good reason for that. (Or a bad reason, depending on your point of view.) And we'll give you three guesses why.
Outside the U.S., the M8's on a newer software version — one that includes EXTREME Power Saving mode. (If you must know, it's software version 1.54.401.5.)
