HTC One M9 Announced

So the HTC One M9 has finally been announced! And it appears most of the leaks were about right! There is no major change in terms of industrial design here; the M9 looks a lot like the M8.

Watch the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 Live Stream Here with Galaxy S6 Launch

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is just over 3 hours away with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and possibly the Galaxy S6 Edge due. Based on leaks it appears Samsung are deviating from the Galaxy styles of previous devices with an all metal, glass back design which will like mean no removable battery, microSD slot or water proofing.  This is already causing quite a bit of a stir among Samsung fans on Reddit, but I guess a sleeker design will have more mass appeal. Either way we will find out what all the fuss is about at...
