Nobody really knows what to expect at with the new Facebook phone, other than it’s thought it will be made with HTC again.
The event might not be to announce a new phone at all. Personally, I’m rooting for a new Android application, although it seems unlikely that the company would release an updated app for Android and leave the iOS crowd out of the loop.
Samsung have sent out invites to an event taking place on March 14th, with the tagline ‘get ready 4 the show’. You guessed it, this is the event where we will finally see the Samsung Galaxy S4. The features of the company’s next flagship device are still unknown, but no doubt there will be lots of minor software and hardware upgrades to keep the phone at the top of the competition throughout this year.
Google have just sent out invites to the high profile technology reporters, inviting them to an Android event on October 29th in New York City. The invitation itself is designed around the interface of Google Now, the assistant which was introduced in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It’s thought that the upcoming event could be used as a way to showcase version 4.2, which we reported on earlier this week. It’s likely that Google will also use this event to announce the next Nexus phone, with the possibility of there being multiple Nexus handsets revealed.
Earlier in the week, HTC announced a number of new smartphones running on the Windows Phone 8 operating system, instead of their usual Android choice. Nokia weren’t very happy about this, but we sure were. HTC always make brilliantly designed phones, which fits in well with the innovative style of Windows Phone. The phone you see above, the ‘8X‘, is the main ‘flagship’ phone announced this week by HTC, but there were some other good ones to, each with their own unique features to stand out against the crowd.
