HTC confirms 'new HTC One' on March 1

92

Not that there was any doubt, really, but HTC UK on Twitter has confirmed that we'll see "the new HTC One" on March 1.

That phone, of course, should be the HTC One M9. We've seen leaks and rumors in drips and drabs over the past few weeks, some suspect, some not quite as much. (But all very much unofficial.)

No LG G4 until at least April, Korean news outlet reports

19

File this one under expected and obvious: Korea Times is reporting that LG isn't announcing the next version of its flagship line — the LG G4, if the naming convention remains consistent — until at least April. That would give it distance from the Samsung Galaxy S6, which we're expecting to see at Mobile World Congress on March 1.

On the other hand, LG hasn't ever announced its flagship phone at Mobile World Congress. Instead, it used that stage in 2013 and 2014 to announce the LG G Pro and LG G Pro 2, respectively. We're not expecting a new G Pro model, with the LG G Flex 2 supplanting that line.

The LG G3 was announced in late May 2014 at events in New York and London.

16

This weekend, through Monday, Feb. 16, you'll be able to save big on the the HTC One M8 directly from HTC. Sure, the HTC One M9 might be right around the corner, but that doesn't mean the One M8 is any less of a phone one year later. The discount rings in at $150, which brings the 2014 HTC flagship down to $499.00. And it's available for all colors on all carriers, so you don't have to go unlocked if you don't want to (or, you know, you're buying for Sprint or Verizon.)

Galaxy Note 4 Volume/Interruptions setup on Lollipop offers worst of both worlds

Note 4 Interruptions

Just let me mute my phone

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the global Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) dropped in parts of Europe today, opening the doors for Note 4 owners in these parts to get a taste of Google's latest Android version. Much like Lollipop on the Galaxy S5, the Note 4's Android 5.0 update brings a splash of Material Design, new features and improved performance to Samsung's pen-toting 5.7-incher.

But it's not all good news ...

HTC One M9: The Android Central wishlist

HTC One M9

What do we want to see from the next HTC flagship?

We're reaching the time of year when new phones start to become available, and the first wave of 2015 flagships looks set to arrive at Mobile World Congress in just a few weeks time. Among the many announcements in Barcelona will be the next flagship phone from HTC, which we're assuming will be the HTC One M9.

This will be the third year of the HTC One series (or the fourth, if you include the One X and its contemporaries). Sure, the latest in HTC's line of flagship phones will be faster and more feature-filled than before, that goes without saying. But moving beyond the basic specs, there are a few things we'd like to see from the HTC One M9, based on our time with last year's M8.
