HTC One Mini (a.k.a. M4) Spotted In Leaked Photos Next To Its Bigger Brother

Making slightly smaller versions of your flagship smartphone with the "mini" designation seems to be all the rage these days. Just a week after Samsung confirmed its Galaxy S4 Mini, we're seeing compelling evidence that HTC's One Mini (possibly codenamed the M4 - the One was the M7) is close to completion. Estonian website Forte has a wide variety of leaked shots showing what's purported to be a One Mini in black, standing grille-to-grille with its larger sibling.

According to Forte, the One Mini uses a 4.3-inch screen with a 720p resolution, making "mini" an accurate description only in relative terms.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Gets Official: Same Great Specs (Mostly), IP67 Waterproof Rating, Available This Summer

Samsung's tougher brother to the flagship Galaxy S4 is a pretty poorly-kept secret, with multiple leaked photos, videos, and different sets of specifications coming out weeks before its announcement. Samsung confirmed the device today in a press release coinciding with Computex, painting a picture of the S4 Active as a device that mostly matches the Galaxy S4 for power and capability, with the ruggedized design seen on some of Samsung's Rugby smartphones. The Galaxy S4 Active will be available for purchase this summer starting in the United States and Sweden, for an undisclosed price.

Specifications remain quite similar to the original S4: same 5" 1080p screen (though this one is an LCD TFT), the same 1.9Ghz quad-core processor seen in the LTE versions (almost certainly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, though this isn't confirmed in Samsung's press release), same TouchWiz version of Android 4.2.

Video: Watch ASUS' Forty-Minute 'We Transform' Event From Computex 2013

ASUS wasted no time at Computex 2013, taking the stage for a press event that lasted around forty minutes, during which time they managed to reveal a total of eleven products, including gems like the new, $499, 2560x1600 Transformer Pad Infinity, a couple of new MeMO Pads, and of course the FonePad Note FHD 6 that, while nice, may not show up in the US.

While the actual announcement wasn't quite the spectacle ASUS' MWC conference was, it no doubt had its own merits. The number of ping pong ball-based "tech illusions" was low, but any announcement with Jonney Shih is guaranteed to hold your attention.

[New App] GMD Hide Soft Keys Banishes The Navigation Bar For Root Users, Nexus Only For Now

Soft navigation keys are desirable in post-4.0 Android device... at least for some users. Some people love 'em (and curse the likes of Samsung and HTC every time a new flagship with hardware keys comes out) and some don't. For those who don't, Good Mood Droid (whom we've featured before) has created GMD Hide Soft Keys root. It's a root-only application that gets rid of the navigation bar in all areas of the device.

We've seen this implemented in a few different ways, mostly on custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, and AOKP. We've also seen similar apps in the Play Store, like full!screen.

Yes, The AT&T iPhone 4 Is "Banned," No, This Doesn't Solve Anything Or Really Matter

Hi there. It's been a while since I last wrote about the smartphone patent wars. I consider that a really, really good thing. I really don't like the patent wars. They're little more than a proxy conflict led by Apple and Microsoft to slow down the emergence of competing OEMs in what has obviously become the next big computing market. It is, however, a proxy war they are undeniably winning. Microsoft has inked royalty deals with nearly every Android OEM of note except the Google-owned Motorola (big surprise there), Apple has a nice little licensing arrangement with HTC, and a $600 million verdict against Samsung with another trial considered to be in Apple's favor to come.
