HTC has made some big changes in its approach to smartphone photography, and the company is working on even bigger ones to introduce in the next couple of years.
One of the marquee features of the HTC One M8 is the optional Extreme Power Saving Mode that can dramatically extend battery life. For the first time, Sprint users can test out that feature.
The HTC One is a thing of beauty. The tech media fawned over itself when discussing the 2013 model for its aluminum body, large display, and above average design. Now the One M8 arrives to be even better.
Sprint has begun updating the HTC One Max to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. While it's not the same version of the software seen on the recently announced HTC One M8, this version of KitKat does provide some subtle improvements to Sense 5, performance enhancements for multitasking and loading content, security patches, new Bluetooth profiles, and the Cloud Print service to access wireless printers from the phone. The update measures 344 MB is rolling out in stages starting today. Be sure to charge your battery at least 75 percent before installing the update. Check for the update in Settings > About Phone > Software update > Check now.
Behold, the all new HTC One M8. Though we cannot call this a debut given the massive amount of information about the phone leaked to the media, be they officially sanctioned or not, today marks the first time that the HTC One 2014 edition has been shown in an official capacity.
The All New HTC One is finally new. The most-leaked smartphone of 2014 officially debuted today at twin press events in London and New York City, giving the press and phone fans a chance to fill in the fine details about the phone that has appeared in so many premature blog posts and videos.
HTC has a new strategy for combating the long wait times that customers may have when seeking new features - release those updates via Google Play rather than firmware packages.
In a short time, HTC will take the wraps off its flagship phone for 2014. The All New HTC One, or M8 as it has been known in the never-ending parade of leaks, is a device critical to HTC's future. You probably already know all the specs about the device, but if you want to see the finer details shared, this is your chance. HTC will host a livestream event at a special event page viewable online. Visit the page when the show starts to see those details as they are revealed.
It has already been confirmed that Carphone Warehouse will put the All New HTC One on sale minutes after the UK press event wraps next Tuesday. New information makes it incredibly likely that Verizon Wireless will do the same in the US market.
When HTC unveils the All New HTC One next week, the phone will go on sale that same day. Carphone Warehouse has already stated that it will begin selling the HTC One (M8) "minutes after it is officially announced" on March 25.
