Earlier this month a rumor started floating around that claimed that the HTC One M8 would be released on Verizon in red. Well it seems like that rumor has some weight behind it now, with an image supposedly being leaked of the special edition device.

At first glance of the device, it seems pretty much what we would expect, but upon taking a closer look at it, some things seem a little off. For example the official renders of the device show the dual LED flash as being round, while on this image the flash is square. The render also shows the plastic strips as being a little curved, while on the official shots they’re straight. These things add up, and the render could be a fake after all.

With a few days left to the announcement of the upcoming OnePlus One smartphone, the company revealed a part of the CyanogenMod 11S interface earlier today and now, the press render of the device is finally available for everyone to see. 

As you can see, the front design of the device is very much similar to the Oppo Find 7, not to forget that OnePlus is founded by one of the former Oppo staff. The design looks beautiful and is pretty much the same as the one shown on the packaging and retail materials leaked earlier. » Read the rest

After OnePlus’s Photomania contest, one of the lucky winners took the opportunity to post a set of high resolution photos taken from the OnePlus One camera in different conditions.

The images have an impressive amount of detail along with a decent bokeh. They boast a massive resolution of 8160 x 6120 and weigh approximately 10MB in size. It must be noted that the person who shot these pictures wasn’t a professional photographer, he was rather an ordinary person who got lucky by winning the contest and put the device’s camera to test.

OnePlus

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.

HTC One (M7) will receive Sense 6.0 next month

HTC_One_Back_Slanted_Camera_Lens_HTC_Logo_TAThe 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!

HTC One M8 gets S-OFF allowing users to mod their device

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!
