HTC working on two entry-level smartphones to join the Desire family

htc_desire_610_press

The HTC One (M8) is a very well-respected device due to its premium build quality, but that doesn’t mean HTC will not target the entry-level market anyways. The company just announced the HTC One Mini 2 and the Desire 610 is on the way. However, that is not anywhere near entry-level.

A new leak claims that the company is working on two handsets that would join the Desire family. This is HTC’s line that has decent specifications, but clearly not anywhere near the One (M8). The two handsets are still being developed and the codenames are A1 and V2. That is all of the information we have at the moment, but we will surely learn more about these two over time.

Gary’s back! No, not Gary Busey for Amazon Fire TV. Gary Oldman has returned in another thirty second commercial for HTC and it’s One (M8). Again, Oldman offers no comments about the handset.

Blue HTC One (M8) shows up for pre-order on U.K. retailer site

htc_one_m8_mobilefun_ad

Earlier this week when images surfaced of a blue HTC One (M8) we wondered whether it might be a Best Buy exclusive or whether other retailers would get a chance at carrying it. At least in the U.K. that question has been partially answered after the blue version of HTC’s flagship showed up on the MobileFun website for pre-order.

The blue HTC One (M8) is listed for £549.99 ($924 USD) for the 16GB version, which is the same price as other colors of the smartphone. No availability or shipping date is provided though.

HTC shows off 3D render of the yet-to-be released red One M8

red-htc-one-m8-3

In April, evleaks showed us a red variant of the HTC One M8 in all its glory and while the device has yet to reach an official capacity, HTC is moving in that direction. A 3D model, hosted by Sketchfab allows you to play with the device and was uploaded by the Taiwanese company itself. Heck, the device has even surfaced in Taiwan suggesting that it will be available starting today in the country.

What this could potentially mean is that we’re edging closer to an official release in other areas of the world. We have the 3D model and other shots of the One M8 in red after the break.

HTC One Mini 2 officially announced

HTC_One_Mini_2_Official_02A

HTC finally took the wraps off of the One Mini 2, which is essentially a mini version of the One (M8). The One Mini 2 does sacrifice in specs, but it doesn’t in materials.

It sports the same metal design and BoomSound speakers as the HTC One (M8), but it’s obviously a little smaller and you won’t get an UltraPixel rear camera nor will you get the Duo Camera effects. It measures 137 x 65 x 10.6mm, and is a little thicker than the original HTC One Mini. It will be available in Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold colors. Hit the break for the full specs.

htc_one_m8_blue

We have already heard rumors that HTC was going to produce some new colors for the HTC One (M8), including red, blue and pink. The red version has already been spotted, supposedly on its way to the Verizon network. Now a blue version of the smartphone has surfaced courtesy @evleaks. No information, leaked or official, is available yet on where this one might land. Last year’s blue HTC One (M7) was an exclusive to Best Buy, but was available on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon.
