Okay, actually, we have a few words. Peter Chou is involved. There’s some Samsung dissing, some iPhone dissing. And it’s called “Hold the Crown.” Get it? No mic drop, though. Disappointing.
According to @upleaks, HTC will release a new high-end smartphone in its Desire range later this month, code-named the HTC A55.
Hello Android fans, here’s what went down in the world of Android this week: Facebook launched its Lite app for entry-level Android devices, we’ve heard some troubling news about Sony, Qualcomm confirmed its overheating problems, ZTE and Meizu introduced new devices, alleged renders of the Galaxy S6 and One (M9) surfaced, we discussed Cyanogen’s plans to take Android from Google, and Microsoft launched its Outlook and Office apps for Android.
Wondering what to expect from the next-gen HTC One (M9), aka Hima? Join us as we take a look at all the most prominent rumors floating around right now.
Holding out hope that HTC’s One M9 will look like more than just an M8 with improved specs? A new render from Evleaks may provide evidence that the M9 will come in two models, both of which further refine the One series aesthetics.
It looks that HTC will hold its promise to roll out Lollipop to the One M8 with 90 days, at least for users of One (M8) in Europe.
This week was all about rumors, as a steady stream of details about Samsung’s and HTC’s next flagships trickled out. We have a good idea of what to expect from the One M9/Hima, with key details including a 20MP camera, larger battery, and an iterative design. Samsung did a little better at keeping the Galaxy S6 under wraps, but we still got a few juicy tidbits about the phone’s design and specifications. In other news, the Snapdragon 810 was in the spotlight, WhatsApp launched its first desktop client and banned 3rd party clients, Google’s plan to become a carrier leaked, and Cyanogen’s CEO revealed his vision of a Google-free operating system.
“We’ve been through hell, but we survived,” an executive told us during one of the company’s regular Frequencies meetups. But can HTC do more than just survive? Can it thrive again?
It’s been a busy week for HTC rumors, with the company’s upcoming flagship making appearances in several alleged leaks. Today, two new reports add more specifics to an already detailed portrait of the M9/Hima.
For those looking for a good deal, Best Buy is offering the electric blue model of the One M7 for $200, off contract. That’s a heck of a deal, especially considering the nearly two-year old flagship has specs that easily beat out many similarly priced newer mid and low range handsets.
