When Google started splitting services from Android proper, it was stroke of genius. Take things like Keyboard or Search and make them standalone apps, then update as needed. It keeps things fresh, and HTC clearly took note. They’ve released a few of their new services as apps onto Google Play, making it easier to support their products across their lineup.
With HTC’s new One (M8), the company has once again positioned themselves at the forefront of mobile device photography. The Duo Camera on the HTC One (M8) neatly accomplishes things a regular camera can’t. It’s also another bold move from HTC that needs a bit of explanation.
The new HTC One (M8) is here, and you might be wondering what’s changed. The device hardware, of course, but what about the software? What’s changed on the inside besides a processor? Some things remain the same from last time, but there are some neat new tricks HTC let fall from their sleeves today. We’re here to give you a quick overview of all the fresh news regarding HTC Sense.
The HTC One (M8) has been officially unveiled. This means the rumors and leaks will be coming to an end. But perhaps more important here -- it means we are finally going to be able to put the handset to the test. We are curious to see how it stands up in comparison to the previous year HTC One. And we are also curious to see how well it stands up against the other recently announced flagship -- the Samsung Galaxy S5.
We've now seen details for the HTC One (M8), and have learned there will also be a Google Play and Developer edition available. But the question we suspect many are curious about deals with US availability. In a bit of good news, and also proving those earlier rumors were accurate -- HTC will have the One (M8) available beginning today.
The HTC and Samsung flagship devices have both been unveiled. Naturally, we are talking about the One (M8) and the Galaxy S5. The former was detailed earlier this morning, and we saw details of the latter earlier in the month, during Mobile World Congress. We still need to get each of these devices in for an extended testing session to get all the answers, but for now we can look towards the specs for some of the answers.
When HTC Launched the One last year, one of the neatest features was the case selection. With today’s launch of the HTC One (M8), the case selection is equally as impressive. We’ll get a few favorites from last year, as well as a new case we like for it’s tech, as well as its retro feel.
With the new HTC One (M8), a slew of official accessories can be had with it. Like they did last year, HTC has released a lineup of official accessories meant to enhance your experience with their handset. Between a phone to accompany their phone, and the usual lineup of cases and battery packs, the One (M8) accesory lineup is already better than what’s on offer for most devices.
Along with the regular model HTC One (M8) that we will see arriving with carriers, there will also be a Google Play and Developer edition. As we've seen with HTC in the past, the Google Play and Developer edition handsets will keep the same overall look and feel, but have some differences in terms of the software. Notably in the case of the GPe model -- this will be running stock Kit Kat.
Putting an end to the long and seemingly never ending series of rumors, the HTC One (M8) has been officially unveiled. Many of the leaks and rumors have been accurate, but that isn't to say the entire picture had been revealed. HTC is touting the One (M8) as having been "built to inspire envy" and in this case it will have an all-metal unibody design.
