The Vertu Aster has just appeared FCC and TENAA. Leather back is nice… Note 4 almost same back. Titanium case and sapphirve glass.. The real sapphire glass not just coating.. Only nokia can do it. (Vertu was part of Nokia) Apple just gave lots of excuses for its failure to incorporate sapphire glass on iPhone.
The new LG Wine Smart may be an interesting concept…A typical first Korean mobile phones; folding model, 3inch screen plus support DMB-TV, and is now used as a smart phone operating system. LG Wine series are mostly for old people who can’t see small letters well and wants simple things.
I hope it’s not meant to be the HTC One M8 successor because if it is I don’t see any reason to upgrade from the M8. According to @upleaks, the new HTC Eye selfie phone will sport a 5.2-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) display, 13MP Duo Camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC.
The HTC Desire 820 looks pretty amazing, better than M8. Some strong points (CPU, RAM, selfie camera) and some weak points (battery, low PPI). Apart from 720p it seems decent. I mean 720p isn’t the end of the world but at 5.5″ that really is stretching things. A good price point and HTC definitely has another winner on its hands!
The Android One program does seem compelling given direct from Google updates. Given the success of the Moto G, I would not be surprised if Android One has the same level of success.
HTC Desire series are actually pretty good specially 816 model but the question is do they get software updates and Are the current desire devices going to get Android L. I’m actually interested to see how this turns out. I would love to see a new Snapdragon 615 processor. If they aim a little higher than the current Desire, they could have a fantastic mid range device.
