HTC One (M8) Details Announced, Launching This Month

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

During dual media events in both New York and London HTC Corporation officially unveiled its long-rumored new HTC One smartphone. Dubbed the HTC One (M8), the device is HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and carries on the manufacturer’s tradition of providing high-quality device for the high-end smartphone market.

Throughout the past few months rumors and leaks have detailed almost every aspect of the new HTC One. The official announcement confirms many of these features and specs, making the HTC One (M8) one of the worst-kept secrets in the tech industry.

Like previous HTC One smartphones the HTC One (M8) boasts a metal unibody case. The device has a 5-inch 1080p display (no Ultra HD yet, as predicted due to manufacturing difficulties).

The new smartphone also has dual rear cameras with dual flash that HTC says will help the device take pictures in a wide range of lighting conditions. The cameras’ depth sensor is also included for what HTC calls “a range of artistic effects and tools.” The device also has a 5MP front-facing camera.

On the inside, the HTC One (M8) has a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery. The device comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and supports extra microSD card storage of up to 128GB.

“In 2013 we introduced the best smartphone in the world, but we never stopped challenging ourselves and the status quo in this category,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC. “As pioneers in mobile innovation, we continue to design and build devices that will dazzle, inspire and transform the smartphone industry. Today I’m proud to launch the most stunning, intuitive and advanced handset that the industry has seen to date, the new HTC One (M8).”

The HTC One (M8) was rumored to be launching sometime in April, but HTC has vastly improved its launch efforts this year. The new device is available for purchase through all major (and most minor) mobile providers and smartphone retailers as of today. The unlocked version of the smartphone retails for $650 and come in “Gunmetal Gray,” “Glacial Silver,” and “Amber Gold.” The Amber Gold can only be bought through Best Buy at launch.


Is Amazon Quietly Working On A Smartphone?

Monday, July 16th, 2012

An Amazon smartphone is rumored to be in the works, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. If these hushed whispers and nameless tips are to be believed, the device in-question would be powered by Google’s Android operating system. The company is looking to give Apple and the iPhone a run for its money, though industry insiders seem to feel that, while a smartphone from the likes of Amazon is certainly intriguing, it will have a long, hard road ahead if it plans to compete directly with the almighty Apple.

Anonymous sources close to the project told the SFC that Foxconn International Holdings Ltd, a mobile phone manufacturer based out of China, will assist Amazon with the project. If the company’s name sounds vaguely familiar, you may recall the riot that took place at one of the factories back in June, an event which saw over 1,000 employees clash with security over poor working conditions. The manufacturer is also responsible for making iPhones. (more…)

Galaxy Nexus Gets A Price Cut On Google Play

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Google has been busy today announcing a whole bunch of new and awesome stuff, including Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Project Butter and major improvements to voice search, the Nexus 7 tablet, new stuff for Google Play, and the Nexus Q.

To go along with all of this, there’s one cool thing Google hasn’t announced. It seems that in honor of Jelly Bean and all the other goodies they’ve announced, Google has decided to take a chunk out of the price of the Galaxy Nexus. As of today, the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus is avialable for $349 on Google Play. That’s a discount of $50 on the previous $399 price tag. While that may be less than you pay for the same phone through a carrier like Verizon, it gets you a contract-free phone that gets updates when Google releases them, rather than when the carrier gets around to it.
