Starting Wednesday September 10, the HTC One (M8) smartphone will be getting an update on its Android operating system. It is not quite Android 4.4.4 yet, but owners of the device should still have plenty of reason to enjoy the updated.
HTC recently announced the Desire 820, the followup to the HTC Desire 816. The HTC Desire 820 boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor as well as integrated 4G LTE Cat 4 connectivity and 64-bit multi-core central processing unit. With these hardware specifications, the device is targeted to users who want to view content at optimum display clarity and speed. The HTC Desire 820 also features a 5.5-inch HD display screen and HTC BoomSound speakers.
Starting today, Sprint subscribers can now get hold of the HTC One (E8) smartphone. Through its newsroom page, the carrier announced that customers can buy the device online via the Sprint Web Sales website or through telesales. For subscribers who qualify for Sprint Easy Pay, they can buy the HTC One (E8) handset with $0.00 down (including taxes) and payments of $20.84 each month for two years. The carrier added further that the device will be available in Misty Gray and Polar White colors.
When the new HTC Desire 510 was officially announced last night, the Taiwan-based phone manufacturer was not exactly too enthusiastic in revealing when or where buyers can get hold of the newly-introduced entry level Android phone.
But just this afternoon, HTC USA revealed through their official Twitter account the names of wireless companies that will be carrying the HTC Desire 510 later this year. The carriers mentioned include Sprint, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, and Cricket Wireless.
Any mobile device techie will tell you that 64-bit smartphones became a reality with the release of the iPhone 5S. However, no other phone maker has been able to produce a 64-bit smartphone that runs on Android.
Even on the eve of HTC's scheduled event in New York City, the leaks continue to pour in, especially with regards to the HTC One M8 for Windows smartphone.
The Taiwan-based company was supposed to debut the One M8 for Windows phone during their upcoming event in the Big Apple on August 19, but it appears that HTC enthusiasts may be getting an advance notice as to when and where they'll be able to get their hands on the device.
The plastic version of HTC One E8 is going to be introduced in the United States market after all, according to a promotional video posted in the official YouTube channel of Sprint.
When HTC One E8 was first released in the market, it was positioned as a low-cost alternative to the HTC One M8, the flagship mobile phone of HTC. Users who bought the plastic-clad One E8 enjoyed a more budget-friendly option to the One M8, which featured an aluminum body. But those buyers were only limited to China and Southeast Asia, the only regions where the plastic version was available.
HTC is set to release its Zoe app to other Android smartphones this week. Zoe is a video remixing app that debuted on the HTC One M8 earlier in March of this year. But in a few days, this app will be made available to other Android devices, especially those that run on Android 4.4, the most recent version of the operating system.
