HTC One ME with QHD Display, Helio 10 Chipset, 20MP Camera and Fingerprint Scanner Unveiled

If the HTC One M9 didn’t excite you with its FHD display and you could do away with less metal, the Taiwanese phone maker has a new flagship-ish smartphone up its sleeve. The company today announced the HTC One ME, one of the most exciting smartphones it has ever made.


Instead of the full metal body, the HTC One ME comes wrapped in a polycarbonate shell with metal frame. It’s pretty much like the One M9+ the company had launched earlier this year, but there are some noticeable differences including a fingerprint scanner in the new phone which could feed information of up to 5 fingers.

As for the specification, the One ME sports a 5.2-inch display with QHD (2560 x 1400 pixels) screen resolution flaunting an impressive 565 ppi pixel density — evidently the sharpest display HTC has placed in a phone.

Other hardware specs don’t disappoint either. The One ME is powered by Helio X10 eight-core chipset (the Mediatek made processor competes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810) clocked at 2.2GHz. It’s worth point out that One ME is the first phone to embrace this new processor.

On the connectivity front, the One ME supports 4G LTE (FDD: band 1,3,5,7,8,28; TDD: band 38,39,40,41), 3G, and is dual-SIM capable — which makes us believe that the phone is targeted at Asian countries. On the software side, the company hasn’t mentioned the exact version of Android and HTC Sense the phone runs, but it’s likely 5.0 Lollipop.

Other features include 3GB RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, which as the company notes, could be expanded up to 2TB via microSDXC. On the camera front, the device — unlike the One M9+ — doesn’t equip the duo-setup. Instead, it is shipping with a 20-megapixel sensor, which is capable of recording videos at 4K resolution, with LED flash in the rear end and a 4-megapixel UltraPixel selfie shooter upfront. The phone retains the company’s signature Dolby Audio featuring dual HTC BoomSound speakers placed on the front side. There’s a 2,840mAh battery which the company says will run for 13.5 h on 3G mode.

The One ME will ship in — whenever that happens — in rose gold, gold sepia, and meteor grey color options. That’s because the company doesn’t have the pricing and availability information ready to share with us just yet, but it’s likely to be sold only across Asian regions.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
