OnePlus has just kicked off its second no invite necessary promotion of the year and this time it’s entitled “The Gift of One”, and is targeted at residents in the United States who are eager to get their hands on the One, but haven’t yet had the good fortune to obtain an invitation. Starting today, the handset is available for anyone to order on the OnePlus website.
Back in September, OnePlus let slip to supporters during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” discussion that it was planning to launch a second generation variant of its incredibly-popular flagship smartphone, the One, in 2015.
Earlier today, OnePlus director Carl Pei disclosed that the upcoming handset is going to be called the “OnePlus Two” and will officially replace the One. It’s expected to go on sale in “Q2 or Q3 of next year” and will feature some “surprises” when it comes to hardware.
OnePlus has today published details of an update it’s in the process of rolling out to all variants of its flagship smartphone, the One, currently situated in the United States. Unfortunately, the upgrade doesn’t bring much to the table with regards to new features, but it does include a handful of bug fixes, stability improvements, speed optimizations and an important security patch.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
HTC is in the midst of pushing out a major update to all unlocked and carrier-branded variants of its current flagship smartphone, the One (M8), situated in Europe. Weighing in at 252MB, the upgrade transports the Taiwanese company’s Eye Experience camera user interface, together with a bunch of stability improvements.
Hit the break to see the full changelog.
OnePlus’ ‘One’ phone hit a few (okay, more than a few) bumps in the road since its initial launch. Production was an issue initially, then there were some OS/software issues, and now the company is looking to possibly drop its native CyanogenMod altogether.
But that doesn’t mean the company will stop forging ahead.
A new leak shows the “OneWatch” on an unpublished page of OnePlus’ website. Of course, you should take this with a grain of salt, as a previous leak from OnePlus regarding an upcoming tablet turned out to be false.
Talk about free upgrades…
Reddit user TweektheGeek’s Galaxy S4 overheated and partially melted overnight — he contacted Samsung, and was told he’d be receiving both a new device and a mail-back box to send his old device back for inspection.
While the mail-back box came, no new device ever showed up. Enter HTC product manager Leigh Momii.
Just days ago, leaks suggested that the update would come in July, but we expected it to be more late July to early August.
It was all too good to be true, wasn’t it?
OnePlus, a small start-up which planned to release its first mobile device this summer, has delayed the project, dubbed the “One,” once again.
Invites for the OnePlus One were supposed to be sent out in May, but there were software bugs that held back the device from release. It looks like there’s been another bump in the road — there are more problems with the software. The device will come running CyanogenMod, the popular Android-based operating system.
While the HTC One M7 on AT&T got the Android 4.4 update a while ago, the device is just now getting HTC Sense 6.0. The update is essentially the same as what has gone out to other variants of the device in the past couple of months.
The update will bring a few visual changes, such as a new color palate and customizable themes. It will also bring a new design to the camera app and gallery app.
With the LG G3 set to be released tomorrow, many are wondering how big the device will be. It’s always been expected to be large because of the 5.5-inch display. A new leaked image shows just how big it is compared to the HTC One M8.
The images also show the brushed metal design on the back, giving it a premium look. Not only that, but the auto-focus feature that has been rumored to be present on the device is shown. Other specs of the device were leaked earlier today.
