Rumors, pre-sales and videos. That is what this morning’s news is all about! The hosts are HTC, Best Buy and the Silicon Valley cast, so stick around.
OnLeaks hasn’t been quiet lately, and today there’s a little something for those who happen to be fans of the HTC One M9 but would prefer a bigger display. There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that you may get your wishes granted soon. The bad news is that the leaks don’t show a huge difference.
The image above displays a press render made out of a prototype OnLeaks took a look at. So it was basically re-made like this to protect the source. We are also given the dimensions and screen size. The screen is only slightly bigger at 5.2 inches (compared to 5.0 inches). The phone also measures in at 150.9 x 72.5 x 10.15 mm.
Opinion: To be honest, I don’t even see the point in making this. That is, if we are to assume this will be a high-end device. 0.2 inches larger? That’s really not even significant, but HTC may have another audience in mind. This phone seems to keep the dual-camera mode, and it also adds a fingerprint-reading home button.

Reddit was very hot on tech activity this weekend, mainly because rumors suggesting the Samsung Galaxy S6‘s release may have been revealed. The news comes from a couple Reddit users who got some insight in Best Buy’s plans for the launch.
It seems Best Buy may be showing its newest Galaxy S6 smartphones in store starting this Friday. You will be able to pre-order it for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon the same day, but the phones will not be released until April 10th. It’s also said those who pre-order may get a “free device” of sorts, which is assumed to be a wireless charger.
Opinion: This seems to go inline with other release dates. The same release date has been announced for the Indian market, so this rumor doesn’t seem as random as others.
We are all a bunch of geeks, so there’s more than a slight chance you are waiting on the new season of Silicon Valley. Here’s a little something to hold you over until April 12th. HBO has released a new trailer that gives you a good look at what’s coming.
Opinion: So stoked! The trailer is just as silly, fun and nerdy as you can expect!
