HTC will release the Hima Ultra exclusively for Chinese markets with the launch of the M9

htc_one_m9_sprint_dark_gunmetal_greyIf you weren’t entirely impressed with HTC’s M9 today, there’s always a chance that the bigger sized version of the device will change things up a bit. According to @upleaks, HTC will announce the Hima Ultra at a Chinese press conference later this year when they announce the M9 for that particular market. Unfortunately, that means the supposedly bigger sized version of the device will be exclusive to Chinese markets, at least at first.

There isn’t much info on what the Hima Ultra will be, but it’s a pretty safe bet it’ll stick to the same mold HTC is using for the new HTC One. We’ll keep you updated as more information surfaces.

htc_one_m9_hands_on_leak_022815

This is definitely not what HTC wanted to happen the day before its MWC 2015 event. A press member with early access to the device posted a hands on video with the One (M9) being compared to its predecessors. The video does not show or reveal anything we have not heard already; therefore, all it is really good for is seeing the One (M9) in a few more angles.

Someone over on the XDA Forums has posted what are allegedly Samsung applications that will be featured on the upcoming Galaxy S 6. The apps included by user Albe95 are Optical Reader, Geo News, Gear Manager, and Kids Mode. The layout and amount of text seems simplified while a wide amount of colors are still being used. Basically, TouchWiz looks like less of a circus while maintaining its flavor.

Two Nexus phones on tap for this year and one of them could be made by Huawei

Nexus_5_Nexus_Logo_TA

Yesterday it was leaked that the next Nexus phone would be made by a Chinese manufacturer, and today we might know who that is. Not only that, it appears that there might actually be two Nexus phones launched this year.

The same leaker is now saying there will be two Nexus phones, one produced by the said Chinese manufacturer, and the other by LG. This isn’t something that Google has done in the past, but it doesn’t sound so far fetched since we already have both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 available at the same time. If you take into account that Google cannot call the next Nexus phone the Nexus 7 for obvious reasons, it’s likely they will make new versions of both the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 6. This would keep most customers happy since not everyone wants a 6-inch phone. It would also solve the issue of having just one expensive Nexus phone. The Nexus 5 could be more budget-friendly and the Nexus 6 would be the premium-priced version.
