There's little left to say about the HTC One Max - it's a device that's been leaked more than almost any other smartphone this year. But here in the days before the actual final reveal, we can move down the list with every little bit and piece we've been tipped to know. This begins with the most recent leak of the device internationally with a press render of the European version, complete with fingerprint scanner.
We're big fans of leaked smartphone photographs around here and today a new leak has surfaced showing off an unannounced HTC smartphone. The photographs aren't of the complete device itself, but rather the photos are of the front panel for the HTC Butterfly 2. The original HTC Butterfly launched last year and sold as the Droid DNA in the US.
The HTC One Max has cropped up in a myriad of leaks, with things ranging from user interface to design to hardware and back all being leaked in an assortment of speculations. Now word has surfaced via Chinese website ePrice that the handset will be unveiled on October 17th, leaving us with a bit over two weeks of waiting before the official details are dished out.
HTC handed out special versions of its flagship smartphone the HTC One to developers called surprisingly enough the HTC One Developer Edition. Developers who happen to own one of those handsets now have a new version of Android to download and try out. HTC has announced that the One Developer Edition can now run the Android 4.3 update.
We are used to leaks of unannounced smartphones turning up around here, and often those leaks come courtesy of someone in China at the manufacturing level. A leaked photograph of what is reportedly a HTC One smartphone that is gold in color has turned up. The photo originally came from a Chinese web forum called Weibo.
Bringing a 4.5-inch qHD display to the market with Android and several of the high-powered features that made the HTC One one of the company's most sought-after smartphone in years, the HTC Desire 601 had been made official today. This device works with features such at HTC BlinkFeed and media enhancers like HTC Zoe and Video Highlights, making the software experience rather similar to the HTC One. With HTC BoomSound in a couple of front-facing speakers, this device is just as loud as the HTC One as well.
As HTC prepares to launch "big things" in the very near future, rumors of a dual-launch of two machines, one rather large and the other quite tiny, aim directly at the UK. The larger of these in the HTC One Max is tipped by Expert Reviews as quite possibly headed for a UK release right as the smaller companion machine we're speaking of here is placed on store shelves. The smaller device was known originally as the HTC Mini (not to be mistaken for our recently reviewed HTC One mini, the stand-alone smartphone.)
Several months after the first market availability of the original HTC One, the HTC One mini emerges as a compact amalgamation of everything that was right about its predecessor. Working with a smaller body, a lower resolution on a sized-down display, and a processor that's not quite as powerful as the Qualcomm SoC on the HTC One, can this miniature second wave of a smartphone strike true for those of us with a smaller palm?
Here with the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7, Qualcomm scores a bit hit with a new version of the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (with Adreno 320 GPU), coming up to battle the original tablet's NVIDIA Tegra 3. This new device works with a much more high-definition display and a new edition of Android with version 4.3, so benchmark comparisons won't be especially telling - or fair, for that matter - but let's have a peek anyway!
