This Week's Chitter Chatter - All-New HTC One and More Versions of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on the Way
Yet more rumours have emerged concerning the forthcoming launch of HTC's new smartphone which is now expected to be called the All-New HTC One rather than the HTC One Two as was previously suggested. The All-New HTC One is likely to launch sometime in March and it's thought to come with some great new features such as dual rear-facing cameras which will include an UltraPixel camera, a 5-inch 1080p display and a revamped Sense 6.0 user interface. The All-New HTC One is also anticipated to feature a 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB or RAM and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Watch this space for the latest reports on the All-New HTC One over the next few weeks.
As expected Sony launched their latest flagship handset, the Xperia Z2 at last week's Mobile World Congress. It's common for mobile phone companies to release a flagship smartphone once a year however Sony have already bucked this trend with launch of the Z2 only 6 months after the Xperia Z1 went on sale. Sony Mobile's Creative Director is on record as saying that the new Xperia Z2 will be Sony's new flagship mobile phone for the first half of 2014 and that they are planning on releasing a new flagship smartphone every 6 months. So we could be seeing a new Sony premium handset as soon as September this year, possibly called the Xperia Z3. Keep an eye on our blog for the latest as we get it.
If you like the look of the new Samsung Galaxy S5, then the great news is that there are rumoured to be more S5 handsets on their way. Speculation is growing that a premium all-metal bodied Samsung S5 smartphone could be released in a couple of months time (possibly May) which will also feature a QHD resolution display and optical image stabilisation for better photographs. As well as a metal S5 smartphone, it's expected that Samsung will soon be unveiling an octa-core version of the Galaxy S5 which is said to feature a 2.1GHz octa-core Exynos 5 proecessor.
Topping off a very mobile phone centric week is news that LG may release their new LG G3 smartphone earlier than expected. LG's previous flagship phone the G2 was launched in September last year and its thought that the G3 launch will be brought forward in order to compete with the latest round of premium flagship from rival phone companies. The premium G3 is expected to come with some decent specs including a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a 2k resolution.
