In case you were unaware, HTC’s upcoming flagship, The All New HTC One, will feature dual cameras. In fact, we have gotten a clear look of the entire device when it leaked in gray, silver, and gold. But courtesy of @evleaks once again, we have the image above. It is a clear close-up of The All New HTC One’s dual cameras. In addition to the two cameras, we have dual LED flash.
HTC is holding an event on March 25 in New York City and we will keep you updated on any new developments. Read more
We have good news for the people interested in pickup up the HTC Desire 610 in the United States. According to @evleaks, AT&T will be carrying the device when it reaches here. As of now, it is unknown if other carriers will elect to offer the Desire 610. This mid-range handset will have a 4.7-inch qHD display and a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.6GHz with 1GB of RAM. There are 8MP/1.3MP cameras and the Desire 610 will be available in multiple colors. Read more
We’ve been excited to see NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 processor in action ever since it was announced back in January, but benchmarks have been scarce and it’s obviously not in any devices just yet. Fortunately for our curiosity, an AnTuTu benchmark for a device with the 64-bit K1 processor has shown up, and it looks every bit as impressive as NVIDIA made it out to be two months ago.
The 64-bit chip showed up with a benchmark score of 43617, which is about 10k points higher than the Snapdragon 800 found in the current crop of flagship devices, and a few thousand points ahead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 and 801 chips. In certain CPU tests, the K1 faltered a bit compared to quad-core processors, but since it’s only a dual-core CPU, it makes sense. However, each of those cores still outperforms other quad-core processors, and the RAM test for the K1 was insanely high, so multitasking will be a great selling point for devices with this chip.

As we wind down to the inevitable launch of the All New HTC One, the once now trickle of “leaks” are now developing into a full on flood. Today’s leak doesn’t give us much in terms of new stuff to look at. However, we do get to see some benchmarks that put the new One above current competition. Although, benchmarks really don’t express real world use, it does show what you’d expect, a new generation phone out paces the current gen offerings.
The leak and benchmarks show a Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2GB of RAM, 5MP front camera, 16 GB of external storage, and a microSD card slot.
We have a little gallery of the leaked photos for you after the break. March 25, can’t get here soon enough, so that these leaks can be put to rest.
According to Webtrek, Xiaomi’s upcoming tablet may be a formidable budget tablet with a large screen. Also, you can see a shot of the device’s backside above. This 9.2-inch tablet is slated to have 1280×720 resolution and run Android 4.3 out of the box; however, Xiaomi’s own overlay will likely take precedent of the software. Running the show is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM. This processor will be clocked at 1.6GHz. And internally is 8GB of storage. The rear camera has seven megapixels and the front has one and a half megapixels.
Hit the break for a chart of the leaked specifications. Read more
A person going by the username of “Geek” posted an image taken with the LG G3 camera on ortud.com. Now just like any other post like this, it could be a waste of our time, but it could also give us an early indication of the LG G3 camera.
According to “Geek”, the G3 has the same sensor (13MP) as the G Pro 2, but with the addition of optical image stabilization (OIS). He also said to expect the device to be released in July, which slightly coincides with the latest rumors.
A new report out of Korea suggests that Samsung is experiencing a little bit of a problem with a significant feature for the Galaxy S 5. It is being reported that the company is having an issue internally producing the fingerprint scanner and unless they bring in a third party, it would be very difficult to launch next month in one hundred-fifty countries.
Because of this, Samsung has started to negotiate a deal with CrucialTec. CrucialTec is a company that manufactures Optical Track Pad mobile input devices for companies across the world. And if this negotiation does yield a deal, Samsung’s upcoming flagship should arrive right on time.

Android handset manufacturers typically don’t only release one flagship device per year, which Sony recently told us all in pretty blunt terms. Sony releases Xperia Z successors pretty quickly, and that’s not counting things like the Xperia Z Ultra. Samsung tick tocks their product launches with a Galaxy S in the early part of the year and a Galaxy Note towards the end of the year. It’s a fairly common practice now.
However, one company that hasn’t bitten on that concept has been Apple. According to the Wall Street Journal, though, Apple may be looking into a way to launch multiple products per year (we’ve already seen them dabble in it with the launch of the 5C, anyway) to help boost their growth in Asian markets, specifically in China. To accomplish this, Apple has been hiring on tons of engineers in Asian markets, many of them from HTC. Some of these engineers are put to work with supply chain logistics as well as product development. Read more
Well this is certainly surprising. Usually when a phone leaks on video this early before it’s release, it’s in a terrible non-HD type quality with no sound. Today we have a 12 minute video showcasing the new HTC One (M8) by a kid who somehow got his hands on the device.
Keep in mind that this may not be the best review you’ve ever seen, but the kid has still provided us with a clear and long video of the HTC M8 giving us all a first look at the much anticipated device. Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think!
Another unexpected leak has arrived on this Saturday afternoon. What we are looking at, courtesy of @evleaks, is a Chrome-branded device that features the same faux leather back featured on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Along with supplying the image, @evleaks says “Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 design language marches on…” So what exactly is this unidentified device? More likely than not it is a Chromebook. It features Chrome’s logo alongside the Chrome name. Read more
