The All New HTC One leaked again

m8_001The All New HTC One has had another leak, this time coming from China. Several picture of the device appeared on the local social network Weibo. The All New HTC One (Anho) will be officially revealed this month, on March 25 and has been referred to by many names over the last few month like the HTC Two, HTC One 2. Keeping the device a secret has proved difficult for HTC, or possibly all of these leaks are staged to remind folks dazzled by the Samsung Galaxy S5 to hang on in there as there is an alternative round the corner.

The photos of the Anho don’t really show anything we haven’t seen before, or reveal any new information only the size of the unit compared to the HTC One Max.

HTC M8 to have 2 Cameras

HTC-One-2-M8New images of the HTC M8 leaked by nowhereelse.fr yesterday reveal not one, but two rear facing cameras. Initial thoughts were that one of the sensors would actually be a fingerprint reader but, despite the blurry nature of the shots from nowhereelse.fr it’s quite clear to see that both have lens elements in them. One appears to be the same as the Ultrapixel sensor on the HTC One while the other looks to be quite different. There’s also a dual LED flash evident that looks to be very similar to the two-tone version we have on the iPhone 5s

So why two cameras?

There are lots of theories at the moment including being able to take 3D photos. Personally I think we’re looking at a 4MP Ultrapixel camera that’s the same as the HTC One which will be ideal for low-light and fast action photos. And then I suspect that the other camera will have a much higher pixel count but have a smaller pixel size, so less light sensitivity. The cameras seem way too close together to give much of a 3D image separation.

Another theory is that the two cameras will work simultaneously and may or may not have the same pixel count but that together they will offer better IQ and light sensitivity, both images captured on each being combined with some clever interpolation software to push the boundaries and offer a best of both worlds solution.

Whatever they are we look set to find out in a few weeks time!

More on the HTC M8

HTC M8Things are definitely hotting up around the device that’s set to supersede HTC One, the HTC M8. Almost every day we’re seeing a new leaked image or screen shot of the phone that’s soon set to become HTC’s new flagship device.

This week we saw images of the HTC M8 which appear to confirm the claims that HTC have done away with the on screen buttons in favour of capacitive buttons below the screen. However, other images, including the ones in this post, seem to show a lack of both on-screen and off-screen buttons which is one reason why many are calling the current round of leaked images ‘fake’.

Other images released this week reveal the new look of HTC Sense 6 and, in particular, how Blinkfeed has just become a whole lot sexier.

More on the HTC One successor

HTC-One-BackWe spoke about the rumoured HTC One replacement a while ago and now more details of the new flagship phone from HTC, codenamed the HTC M8, have been tweeted by the ever-accurate @evleaks. It would seem that the specs that we hoped for last year could well come to fruition…

Preliminary HTC M8 specs: Snapdragon MSM8974, 5″ 1080p display, 2GB RAM, UltraPixel rear / 2.1MP front cams, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, KK, Sense 6.0

As yet there’s no news on the final name of the new smartphone but we’re expecting to hear more about it at or just before MWC this year.
