Mobile World Congress 2017 is starting in just a few days, and some manufacturers are already releasing new products to get ahead of all the madness that will ensue. Case in point: ARCHOS has just announced two new smartphones, the 50 Graphite and the 55 Graphite, which both pack pretty high-end features inside of budget phones.
It's not exactly news that HTC will be updating its flagship phone for 2014, but more and more leaks seem to indicate that we can expect a phone that looks a lot like the current HTC One. Yet another leaked photo, this time from M Helal on Google+, shows what looks like a One with the dual cameras and a dual flash module that we've seen on a previous leak. The casing is a bit glossier than the current model, and the front view seems to confirm that HTC will switch to virtual navigation buttons.
Helal has specs to share as well: a 4.7-inch 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel front camera.
It's about that time of year, folks - as Mobile World Congress approaches at the end of February, more and more upcoming phones are going to be leaked. The first major leak is from @HTCFamily_ru, which posted a photo of an unknown HTC phone this morning. It appears to be a new member of the One family; the rear is the only visible angle, but it's showing off what looks like two cameras on the back.
Today, we are seeing it again in an even more random creation - a homemade video by MysteryGuitarMan. Dual cameras for recording 3D - check, LED flash - check (though only one), what looks to be a kickstand - check (seriously, nobody has thought of putting a kickstand into a tablet before?
Here is the long awaited announcement from Sprint/HTC - the Supersonic name is no more and the phone is now called EVO 4G.
It will be released this summer, so roll your tongues back up, pick up your jaws and prepare for the painful wait. Get ready to be taunted by the HTC HD2 (which is very similar but running WinMo) owners, and coming out any day now.
Here are the specs of this monster. It is, indeed, the most impressive phone to day:
1GHz Snapdragon QSD8650 CPU
a 4.3" TFT screen, 480x800 resolution
TWO cameras - 8MP on the back and 1.3MP on the front
DUAL flashes on the back - I got to see what that looks like on the HD2 and it's really blinding
720P video playback and recording using the rear camera and HDTV connectivity via HDMI through an adaptor
1GB internal storage
8GB MicroSD card included, expandable to 32GB
WiMax/4G with support for 8 concurrent users
Proximity, light, gyro sensors, digital compass, GPS
Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP + EDR
a kickstand - interesting, that's a new and lightweight way of making your phone stay upright - great for watching videos on the huge screen
