What you are looking at are some internal components for the upcoming OnePlus One. On the left, however, looks like a display. The image comes from, you guessed it, @evleaks. His rather funny comment attached is “OnePlus One, not quite ready to debut.” That is what it looks like here! Luckily, OnePlus has until next week on Wednesday to get it all together. » Read the rest
The OnePlus team has been very transparent with the generous amount of information they share about their upcoming One smartphone. Today, just one week before the device gets full unveiled, we have information regarding the pricing of the OnePlus One across the globe. And it looks like OnePlus is pricing the One very aggressively.
In the United Kingdom, the OnePlus One will cost less than £290 while other European retailers will sell it for under €350. And in Hong Kong, it will be under $3,000 HKD. What about the United States? OnePlus will be fighting the Nexus 5 by selling the One for less than $400.

The next version of the HTC One (M8) was just released, but jealous owners of the previous version (M7) have something to be excited about. The company announced today that will push out an update to the original HTC One (M7) that’ll include Sense 6, the same user interface that’s running on HTC’s newer One (M8). HTC executive Jason Mackenzie confirmed that the update will make its way to devices by the end of May.
There are a lot of new features in Sense 6.0, but its unclear which ones will be compatible for last year’s device. Surely the UI will receive a pretty big improvement, and apps like BlinkFeed and the camera will be updated, but all of the gestures are probably unlikely to make its way to the One (M7).
With HTC’s One M8 out and available for purchase, it would only be a matter of time before we started hearing more regarding the smaller cousin to this year’s (so far) most beautiful handset. The HTC One M8 Mini is currently rumored to be releasing in May. A second rumor has leaked all but confirming the first rumor.
According to Taiwan’s ePrice, the M8 Mini is set to go on sale in Taiwan in May which correlates with UK rumor from March. There’s no official confirmation of specs but according to rumor, the device will pack a 4.5-inch screen with a 720p resolution. It will also feature 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via micro SD), a 13MP rear camera (no dual-camera as its exclusive to the M8 flagship), a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and will have Android 4.4.2 with HTC Sense 6. It will also have the mostly aluminum body it’s larger cousin has.
HTC looks to make this a mid-tier device so it may come with a mid-tier price. We’ll know more next month. Stay tuned!
Training material from HTC that was sent to thousands of retail sales reps has been revealed, and title of the document makes clear the message that HTC wanted to send. The title reads “Why the HTC One (M8) is better than the Samsung Galaxy S5″.
According to HTC, there’s 5 things that make the all new One a better device, including things like the metal body, BoomSound speakers, duo camera, HTC Advantage, and Motion Launch Gestures.
There are few questions left surrounding the upcoming OnePlus One. The device will be fully unveiled on April 23, but the company has used the time before that to give away information. Recently, they announced the One will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor. When they did that, they left out the clock speed and amount of RAM included. Luckily, the company did that today. » Read the rest
Many HTC device owners will be aware of HTC’s S-ON, which is HTC’s security that prevents modding of their devices, including kernels and custom recoveries. This also includes the installation of Google Play Edition software, otherwise known as stock Android, even though the ROM for it has been available for a while. The Firewater team, which is a team of developers, have managed to achieve S-OFF on the all new HTC One (M8), opening up the device to a number of modding possibilities.
S-OFF will allow users to install the Google Play edition ROM, essentially allowing for stock Android on the device. Users should be wary of doing this, however, as the procedure will void your warranty and is quite dangerous. If you are comfortable with the procedure, then head to the source link below!
People in Europe eagerly awaiting the upcoming OnePlus One have some pricing information to think about. The One, which will have rather premium specifications, will cost no more than 350 euros. When converted to U.S. dollars, that is roughly $480; however, currency conversations are never accurate as pricing differs by each market. The great news for European consumers is that the device may not even cost 350 euros, it could in fact be much less.

While the all new HTC One was announced on Tuesday, there was no mention of a small version of the device, and the fact that there was a mini version of the last HTC One doesn’t mean there will be one this time around. Despite this, a HTC One Mini has appeared on a Swedish carrier, Telia’s, site.
The fact that such a device exists isn’t really surprising, and releasing a mini version of the device would be a no brainer for HTC considering the fact that not everyone wants a device the size of the One. Specifications of the device have yet to be released.
HTC will be releasing 4 versions of the all new HTC One - the normal carrier locked version, a Google Play Edition, an unlocked version, and a Developer Edition. You can get the Google Play Edition from Google Play now, with an estimated shipping date of 2-3 weeks. The Developer Edition is now available directly from the HTC web store.
While the Google Play Edition runs stock Android, the Developer Edition is based on HTC Sense 6.0, and even comes with an unlockable bootloader.
