HTC's 2014 flagship steps up design, screen size, camera capabilities and software features
HTC has today unveiled its new flagship smartphone for 2014, the new HTC One — previously known by the codename "M8". As we've been seeing in leaked images for the past several weeks, the new HTC One features a wraparound metal design, a 5-inch display and a dual rear camera setup. The phone comes in three colors at launch — gunmetal gray, glacial silver and amber gold — and thanks to its curved metal sides the chassis is now 90 percent metal versus the previous HTC One's 70 percent, HTC says.
Today is launch day for the new HTC One (M8), and the device is being officially announced at events in New York City and London. We'll have much more HTC One coverage for you later today, so stay tuned. But in the meantime feel free take a look through the official spec sheet for the device, which is waiting after the break.
The OnePlus One has been trying to work the Android crowd into a frenzy with its promise of being a #neversettle device. Gradually more and more about the device has been revealed and now so has the actual date for the grand unveiling.
Join us on two continents to see what's new in HTC's latest flagship
Today is the day. Teased, leaked and basically splayed all over the place for some time now, we're finally going to get our official introduction to the new HTC One. Codenamed M8, this thing has been hyped up to incredible levels. HTC's own Cher Wang and Peter Chou both told us at MWC back in February that March 25 would see "the best get better," and here we are.
Not doing things by halves, HTC is throwing two separate launch events on opposite sides of the Atlantic. We're live in both London and New York City and we'll be bringing you guys with us to both in the liveblog below!
BlinkFeed, HTC Service Pack and SenseTV listed on Google Play, complete with screenshots
We're just hours away from the expected arrival of the new HTC One (M8), and we're starting to see signs of the final preparations being made for the phone's launch. HTC has this morning released three new HTC Sense apps onto Google Play — HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Service Pack, and HTC SenseTV.
Boost Mobile today announced that it's now carrying the LG Optimus F3, a phone that hit parent company Sprint in June 2013. The Optimus F3 (See our hands-on) sports a 4-inch display and runs Android 4.1. Boost is selling it for $129. [Boost]
A quick reminder, folks, that T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S5 is now available for preorder. The Galaxy S5 will run $0 down and $27.50 per month when paired with one of its Simple Choice plans, or you can buy it outright for $660. Pre-order here.
While Android bloggers and journos may get a chance to rub all up on new phones before they are available, it's not very often that everyone gets a chance. But that's what select Best Buy locations are doing, and it starts March 21 — that's today!
