If you’re planning to upgrade your smartphone later this year, then you may be looking to buy one powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 615 processor.

Keeping the bezels as slim as possible is one of the simplest ways to make a smartphone that looks good, and that’s why the Sharp Aquos Crystal is quite possibly the most attractive handset you’ll see this year. It has hardly any bezels at all surrounding its 5-inch display, but its internal specifications aren’t quite as pretty.

HTC looks like it could be planning to buck that trend with a midrange Desire smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor.


HTC’s One M8 is one of the finest smartphones you can buy today — but its bigger brother, the upcoming One M8 max, is claimed to be even better. According to one source, the device will have a larger 5.9-inch display and Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805 processor.

The release also adds Qualcomm AllPlay integration, but strangely, support for the Google Chromecast is still missing.
