The leaks keep coming in, with today’s protagonists being the HTC One Mini 2 and the Moto X+1. We have also learnt that OnePlus has revised their Smash the Past terms. What changed? Keep reading to find out.
Rumors of the HTC One Mini 2 emerged recently, promising a smaller version of the HTC One M8. We had no idea how the device would look or what kind of specs it would sport, but a new leak is shedding light on the device that does everything but stay secret.
The leaked image shows a press render of the upcoming HTC One Mini 2. As expected, it does look much like a small HTC One M8, save for the missing secondary rear camera and other small details. Rumored specs include a 4.5-inch display and a 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, so they are also cutting back on the power.
Opinion: I wish this device carried the same powerful specs (or similar) its bigger brother touts. It’s made with affordability in mind, but what about those who simply don’t like the bigger smartphones and want a powerful device?
People didn’t take it lightly when OnePlus revealed their Smash the Past contest. Participants would be able to destroy their current smartphones and get a OnePlus One for just $1, which people deemed wasteful and unnecessary.
I had a different opinion, but OnePlus did listen to those of you who didn’t agree with the contest. To compensate, they are allowing the 100 smashers to donate their current smartphones to Medic Mobile, if they choose to do so.
Opinion: We may see less phones destroyed, but they will be used for good. By my book, that is completely awesome! If selected, are you smashing or donating?
We don’t know much about the rumored Moto X+1, but it’s said to be the successor to the Moto X. It was a mere rumor, but it just became a bit more official today, when it appeared at Motorola’s official Moto Maker website.
As expected, the page was taken down. There was no other details in there, but at least we know it exists. And this leak came right from the manufacturer.
Opinion: I am eager to see what the Moto X+1 has to offer. The Moto X continues to be one of the most unique devices out there and we can only assume the successor will be even better.
