One-M8-red

HTC initially launched its flagship smartphone of 2014 in two color options, Gunmetal Grey and Glacial Silver, with a third, Amber Gold, being added just one month later. All three colorways exhibit the handsets beautiful, sleek design in a bold, yet elegant way, but are not to everyones liking. That’s why the Taiwanese company has today announced pink and red alternatives of the One M8 — so users can select a shade that suits their style.

Xiaomi-Mi41

When Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi announced the Mi 4 on Tuesday, we — and pretty much every other site that covered the news — were quick to point out that it bears a slight resemblance to the iPhone. This isn’t the first time Xiaomi has been influenced by Apple, either. In fact, the company is often referred to as the “Chinese Apple.”

And yet, despite all that, Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra, who used to be in charge of Google’s Android division, has dismissed any likeness to the Cupertino company, and says he’s “sick and tired” of the Xiaomi being labeled an Apple copycat.

Based on the evidence, I have to say I disagree.

OnePlus-One-back

Those still hoping to get their hands on a OnePlus One invite now have yet another giveaway to enter. To celebrate the launch of its new SwapStyle cover, the Chinese firm has promised 5,000 invites to lucky winners who sign up and “perform at least one of the listed actions” by 6:15 a.m. PDT tomorrow, July 23.
