Don’t get too excited. While HTC does have an “A” line of HTC One smartphones, the above leaked handset renders (via Evan Blass) are actually a refresh of the company’s mid-range Desire line. That’s according to famed leaker LlabTooFeR who told us just a couple of weeks ago that there are two new Desire handsets scheduled to be released before HTC comes out with the “Perfume” HTC One M10 sometime after Mobile World Congress. According to Evan, the above images are of the Desire phone codenamed A16, making it a Desire 5xx phone…

Google’s Snapseed now has support for editing RAW photos on Android
Snapseed 2.1 is now rolling out on the Play Store, and there’s one big feature addition: support for editing photos in RAW. In case you didn’t know, RAW support was first brought to the platform with Android Lollipop’s release, and now Google’s own photo editing app is also supporting the format.
Here’s the word, straight from Google’s Anton Daubert:
Today is a big day for Snapseed users! Snapseed 2.1 brings RAW photo editing to your Android device.
Traditionally, shooting and editing RAW photos has been the domain of DSLR cameras and desktop software. But with the RAW capabilities that were added to Android 5 last year, RAW is now becoming important for mobile photography, too.
Snapseed now allows you to edit those RAW photos in the DNG file format right on your mobile device. You can also edit DNGs that were shot on cameras or converted from other RAW formats.
If you’re not exactly familiar with photography format terminology, RAW formats are traditionally associated with DSLR cameras, and they are the most pure form of a photo that preserves everything that the camera captured. This allows you to do more complex edits that would otherwise be impossible with other, more lossy formats.
Google says that in addition to RAW editing features, Snapseed also has “some slight polishes throughout the app” in this version to make navigating it just a bit easier. You can get the app on the Play Store for free.

OnePlus has a budget handset on the way, and just this morning, Pete Lau, the company’s co-founder, came out on Weibo to tease the device. We don’t know much about the phone yet, but we do know that OnePlus has an announcement to make in India on October 12th. We’ll probably see the company’s third phone announced at this event, and if these FCC images are to be believed as credible, we might now have our first look at the device in the flesh… expand full story

The Moto G is set to get a refresh sometime over the next couple of months, likely alongside the company’s flagship Moto X. We first saw some leaked shots of this Moto G (2015) a couple of weeks ago, but that was a sketchy (and blurry) barely-lit picture taken with a potato. Now, we have our first look (via TechnoBuffalo) at what look to be PR renders of the refreshed budget handset…

The above image? That’s the latest Moto X 2015 leak, straight from the infamous Upleaks leakster himself (or herself?). Unlike most of Upleaks’ credible leaks, though, this one is a little bit on the small side as you can see. We have what looks to be a Moto X design with a metal band on the back, what might be an AT&T logo stamped on that metal strip, and what is assumably the company’s “Active Display” feature around front.
It’s nothing all too spectacular. But what makes this leak interesting is that it corroborates a much sketchier leak—so sketchy that we passed reporting on it—that has been making the rounds for the last few weeks. It comes from a guy by the name of TK Tech News, also known as Total Tech. He has a pretty bumpy history to say the least. But it looks like he might be right this time, as his leaks line up perfectly with what we’re now seeing from Upleaks.
So let’s take a look at what we might know about the next Moto X, given this new image… expand full story
