All New HTC One specs leak with its sales guide

The All New HTC One is going to be unveiled on March 25 in London, so leaks and rumour have started to give details of the HTC's upcoming flagship. 
The latest leak of its sales guide provides details about its key features. If it is to be believed, the All New HTC One will come with a 5-inch display. Its processor will be a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 with 2GB RAM. As per the leak, it will have a 2,600 mAh and microSD slot to expand its memory. It is said to be coming with 16GB internal storage. 

The latest leak also suggests that the All New HTC One will be equipped with a dual 5-megapixel rear camera having dual-LED flash. It will also have a 2.1-megapixel front snapper. 

The All New HTC One seems to be almost similar to the HTC One. However, there is no official word on this from the Taiwanese manufacturer.

Missing Malaysia jet LIVE updates: Search for missing Malaysian plane widened to Andaman Sea

Search widened to Andaman Sea 
Authorities today said a missing Malaysian plane with 239 people aboard may have changed course before losing contact, as multinational search operations were widened to hundreds of kilometres from the original radius to cover the Andaman Sea. 

"The RMAF does not rule out the possibility that the aircraft made turn-back before it disappeared from the radar and this is why the search and rescue operation had been widened to a larger area to include waters off Penang," Malaysia's Air Force (RMAF) chief General Rodzali Daud said. 

"This resulted in the search and rescue operations being widened to the vicinity of the waters (off the west coast of Malaysia)," he said. 

The Beijing-bound Boeing 777-200 plane had 227 passengers on board, including five Indians and one Indian-origin Canadian, and 12 crew members. 

The search for the missing plane entered the fifth day, as 34 planes, 40 ships and teams from ten countries are scouring the waters on the plane's flight path and beyond to find it. 

Meanwhile, Vietnam has said it is scaling back search operations in its waters. "We've decided to temporarily suspend some search and rescue activities, pending information from Malaysia," deputy minister of transport Pham Quy Tieu said, adding that boats were still searching the area. 

Confusion over plane's path 

Malaysia's air force chief has denied saying military radar tracked a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner over the Strait of Malacca, adding to the mystery surrounding the fate of flight MH370, which vanished on Saturday with 239 people aboard. 

A massive air and sea search now in its fifth day has failed to find any trace of the Boeing 777, and the last 24 hours have seen conflicting statements and reports over what may have happened after it lost contact with air traffic controllers. 

Malaysia's Berita Harian newspaper on Tuesday quoted Air Force chief Rodzali Daud as saying the plane was last detected by military radar at the northern end of the Strait of Malacca at 2.40 a.m. on Saturday, hundreds of kilometres off course. 

"I wish to state that I did not make any such statements," Rodzali said in a statement on Wednesday. The air force chief said he had merely repeated that military radar tracking suggested the plane might have turned back. 

A senior military officer who had been briefed on the investigation told Reuters on Tuesday that the aircraft had made a detour to the west after communications with civilian authorities ended. 

"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the officer said. 

Malaysian authorities have said previously that flight MH370 disappeared around 1.30 a.m., roughly midway between Malaysia's east coast town of Kota Bharu and southern Vietnam, about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing. 

The Strait of Malacca, one of the world's busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia's west coast, while Kota Bharu is on the northeast coast. 

After the comments from the officer, a non-military source familiar with the investigations said the reported detour was one of several theories and was being checked. 

If the plane had made such a detour it would undermine the theory that it suffered a sudden, catastrophic mechanical failure, as it would mean it flew at least 500 km (350 miles) after its last contact with air traffic control. 

A spokesman for the Malaysian prime minister's office said on Wednesday he had not been informed by the military of evidence showing the plane had recrossed the Malay Peninsula to reach the Malacca Strait. 

"The people I checked with were not aware of that," spokesman Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad told Reuters.
