The stream of leaks about HTC's next big hit just keeps on flowing. This time we're getting a peek at what is supposedly the actual face of the HTC One M8, though, of course, its veracity cannot be assured.
Just like most smartphone manufacturers, Sony has a few leaks somewhere. Details surrounding their latest and greatest smartphones, tablets, and even Lens cameras all seem to leak well ahead of the announcements. Whether these are controlled or not, Sony has just issued some new rules at their HQ aiming to curb and dry up these leaks.
The Samsung Galaxy S 5 is currently in development stages, but what isn't known is what it will look like or feel like in the palm of your hand. With over 10 million S 4's sold already, it's exciting to think about how different (or similar) the S 5 will be, and whether or not it will be an evolution or a brand new product altogether.
HTC is still running the One on 4.1 Jelly Bean, and so it's with great enthusiasm that all owners of the International version of the device are anxious to get their hands on the new 4.2 update. Expected for the middle of June, and if rumors are anything to live by, you could be downloading it to your One within the next 24 hours.
This weekend a couple details and reports have surfaced regarding "breaking new features of Android 4.3" that were leaked by the folks over at HTC. In fact, there's been way more than a few reports of these "leaked features." Those being Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) and OpenGL ES 3.0 both by HTC. We're going to learn more about both from HTC in a public developer meet-up in San Francisco during Google I/O, but they aren't Android 4.3 features.
With the GALAXY S 4 release sitting rather close, the official firmware leaks seem to have begun. The first of these leaks includes the firmware for the GT-I9500. This particular leak is for version I9500ZCUAMDG and it includes the firmware along with the kernel and necessary Odin files. Basically, everything you would need.
LG officially unveiled the Optimus F7 during Mobile World Congress. We then later saw the handset released as the Optimus LTE III in Korea, however otherwise, release news for the F7 has remained on the quiet side. And well, while we have yet to see anything official, rumors suggest Boost Mobile will soon be launching the handset.
The specs are still at a minimum, however we are now being given a rather clear look at the Huawei Ascend G700 smartphone. The images are offering a look at the front and back and appear to be the press shots. Huawei has yet to offer any official details on this particular handset and so far what we are seeing is coming by way of leaks.
It seems a few Huawei branded smartphones have recently leaked. We are talking about the Ascend Plus and the Ascend G710. The images have appeared with some basic details in terms of the specs and it would seem as if at least one of these devices will be coming to the US market. That said, lets kick things off with the Ascend Plus (seen below).
Last week we mentioned the latest Archos rumors. For those who missed that post, the rumors detailed three upcoming smartphones. Assuming these rumors prove to be accurate -- it looks like Archos is once again looking to release a few smartphones. We remain skeptical mainly because this is not the first time we are hearing talk of an Archos smartphone. That part of the rumor aside -- images of these smartphones weren't posted last week and they have not been posted since.
