The One Mini 2 is the latest metallic device to be announced by HTC.
Sporting the same metallic design we’ve become accustomed to, the HTC One Mini 2 looks to be another pocket-friendly addition to the HTC One family. Featuring a 4.5″ HD display, 5MP front-facing and 13MP rear-facing cameras, the One Mini 2 looks to pack in as much as possible into its tiny frame.
Following on from the success of the M8, the One Mini 2 also includes HTC Boomsound to help amplify music and increase the quality levels of the bass and treble. Avid HTC users will also find HTC BlinkFeed onboard, which now boasts over 1,000 news sources from across the world, as well as HTC Sense 6.
Although no date has been confirmed, the HTC One Mini 2 will be available in Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold from June 2014.
A budget Android phone with HD display and great battery life. Is this a real competitor to the Moto G?
Towards the end of last year Alcatel moved into the top five mobile phone vendors in the world. The company’s strength is in low cost feature phones and smartphones in emerging markets, but it is also beginning to produce handsets that could make a dent elsewhere.
With the Idol S Alcatel is following the template set by Motorola and the Moto G, combining a budget price with specs and design that would be better expected on something more expensive. Could this be the handset that makes the One Touch series the one to have?
The Idol S makes an impressive first impression. At just 7.4mm and 110g it is as thin and light as an iPhone 5S and fits beautifully in hand and pocket. Even with a 4.7 inch display it does not feel large. Build quality is surprisingly stellar too. The soft touch plastic back is pleasant, and nicer than that on the S5 which retails for more than three times as much.
Gear Glass set for release in Q4 of this year.
After having a crack at the smartwatch market, it seems that Samsung hasn’t finished with wearable tech. The hotly anticipated Gear Glass, a rival to Google Glass, is set to be unveiled in September.
Although details are fairly sparse, the Gear Glass looks to be one of the first devices to run Samsung’s own Tizen OS and instead of a single glass display, there will be an accompanying ear piece to use alongside it.
With both Sony and LG also working on similar products, 2014 could see wearable tech become a big addition to the industry.
