HTC has been accused of boosting their HTC One (M8) when it comes to benchmark performance, as AnTuTu has included a new version of its popular benchmarking site known as AnTuTu X that supposedly eliminates some of the cheating which has been whispered about. AnTuTu X is meant to depict a more authentic and realistic benchmark score. For instance, as the HTC One (M8) went through the pages of the AnTuTu 4 benchmark test, it managed to eke out a phenomenal 38,815 score, which is ahead of the Galaxy S5’s 34,898 score, way ahead of the Sony Xperia Z2 at 32,768 and the LG G Pro 2 at 30,068.
Much has been said about the All New HTC One 2014 that we do not already know, including the fact that Verizon will be offering the smartphone on an exclusive basis for a couple of weeks before it is fair game to the rest of the smartphone manufacturers in the market. Well, the HTC One 2014 is tipped to be introduced tomorrow at an event in NYC which will kicks off at 11AM ET, but to satisfy your curiosity, above would be a video on YouTube that is nearly 15 minutes in length that shows off the HTC One 2014 in its glory.
Not too long ago HTC’s 2014 flagship, which will apparently be called the All New HTC One, was extensively “reviewed” on video. The device landed in a teenager’s hands through his parents who reportedly work at the company. The video showed off the new phone in all its glory, and even drew sharp criticism and even threats of legal action from HTC. That hasn’t stopped someone else from doing the exact same thing. The All New HTC One has been caught on video once again, albeit a relatively short one.
Rumors about the All New HTC One, the moniker itself remains a rumor as of now, are a dime a dozen. Even though in two weeks the company is officially going to unveil this smartphones, rumors keep coming in at an alarming pace on a daily basis. We have already seen several leaked press renders, spy shots and even a full blown video of this smartphone. There has been yet another leak, with the All New HTC One wallpapers finding their way online. These 18 wallpapers are said to come bundled in HTC’s next flagship.
So we’re sure that by now, everyone is aware that HTC will be launching their All New HTC One flagship smartphone on the 25th of March in an event held in New York and London. The handset is probably one of HTC’s worst kept secrets as photos the handset keep leaking despite HTC’s best efforts.
That being said thanks to a recent set of photos being leaked out of China, safe to say that whatever doubts you had about the design or shape of the handset will pretty much go out of the window, unless of course there are a set of very elaborate photoshop jobs (which we doubt). (more…)

HTC is moving on with its pledge of updating all supported devices to Android 4.4 KitKat. Roughly two months back, the last major update was released for the Butterfly S, it was Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Android 4.4 has been around for a bit longer and has slowly been making its way to all supported device. Today, the HTC Butterfly S Android 4.4 update release has finally taken place, bringing with it all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from this iteration as well as a number of improvements and enhancements.
The HTC Desire 310 was just announced earlier this morning, and while we did not know about the smartphone’s availability in other parts of the world other than having it released in Taiwan later thi April, here we are with word that the HTC Desire 310’s pricing has been revealed for an European release, particularly in stores located within the confines of Germany and Austria. The HTC Desire 310 can be picked up for €159 a pop in either country, whereas folks living in the land of windmills, the Netherlands, will have to fork out €169. As for those who love neutrality, you will have to pony up 179 CHF in Switzerland. I guess there is not much advantage staying in Taiwan as the HTC Desire 310 will appear in the Netherlands this coming April 10, whereas the other countries mentioned ought to receive theirs some time in the middle of April.
The HTC M8 happens t0 be one of the most highly anticipated smartphones expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in a couple of weeks. There have already been a lot of rumors and leaks about the HTC One successor, and we have already seen a few purported pictures being leaked in the past. Today, once again, yet another HTC M8 picture has leaked online, providing us yet another glimpse at what might possibly be the Taiwanese manufacturer’s next generation smartphone.
This particular HTC M8 picture has been leaked by a Twitter account going by @htcfamily_ru, this source has leaked similar images in the past as well. One rather interesting detail is seen in this image, alongside the top speaker grill to be precise. It appears that the HTC M8 has a notification LED, which is housed between the front camera and speaker. This has not been noticed in previous images. Even though the image itself comes from a Russian Twitter account, it seems to have originated from China. HTC has obviously not confirmed anything as yet about its next generation smartphone, so we have to sit tight until at least MWC 2014 to be absolutely sure of what this device has to offer.
Another day, another HTC M8 rumor. The company is expected to unveil this smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month. The M8 is believed to be the very first HTC smartphone to ship with its updated Sense 6.0 UI pre-installed. Today a purported image has leaked online which gives us a glimpse of what’s said to be Sense 6.0 BlinkFeed.
The other day it was rumored that HTC could be the company responsible for building Google’s next Nexus tablet, although we weren’t sure if they were going to replace ASUS for the Nexus 7, or Samsung for the Nexus 10, or maybe even be the manufacturer of the rumored Nexus 8. Well it turns out that thanks to a new report from DigiTimes, it seems that HTC could be taking over Samsung’s spot and manufacture the next-gen Nexus 10 tablet instead. It’s odd that Google has decided to give the job to HTC, especially since HTC hasn’t exactly been very successful when it comes to tablets, but since it is a rumor for now, we’ll just take it with a grain of salt.
Word on the street has it that HTC was supposed to be the original manufacturer of the Nexus 7 but turned it down for unknown reasons. The Nexus 10 has not been updated for a while now and hearing that HTC could be one manufacturing it would seem to suggest that perhaps we might see a release or an announcement of sorts later in the year. HTC is also struggling at the moment compared to the likes of Samsung and hopefully with them possibly getting the gig of the Nexus 10, they will be able to enjoy the sales that Nexus-based devices typically bring in.
