HTC One's 'downmarket' cousin M4's picture, specs leak

A cheaper version of HTC's critically acclaimed flagship phone, HTC One, has surfaced online. Codenamed, M4, the mid-range variant of the phone follows the same design language that we've seen in the One, although it's not known if it will also use the same materials. It also features two speaker grills on the front and comes with Beats audio. 

The images of the phone were brought to public domain by the notorious Evleaks who also informs that the phone would sport a 4.3-inch 720p screen, and will be powered by a dual-core processor, unlike the One's quad-core CPU. It will have 2GB RAM and the same Ultrapixel camera that featured in the HTC One (Review | Pictures).It will house a 1700mAh non-removable battery and offer 16GB of internal memory.

The report indicates that the phone will ship towards the end of the second quarter with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. 

It's not the first time that the existence of the M4 has been suggested. In February, with the M7 or HTC One leaks, Evleaks had indicated that HTC was working on two other phones, namely the M4 and G2. Evleaks had said that the M4 was a premium smartphone, which would be one notch below the HTC M7 and will come with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon SoC running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), along with Sense 5.0. He had also confirmed the other specifications including LTE support. The G2 meanwhile is rumoured to be an entry-level device with a 3.5-inch screen with HVGA display, 512MB RAM and a 5-megapixel camera. This smartphone is touted to have a 1GHz processor and run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Evleaks' leaks have mostly turned out to be reliable, so it's likely that we might hear about the new phone from HTC soon. It will be interesting to see HTC follow Samsung's footsteps and introduce mid-range variants of flagships. Samsung is reportedly going to launch the Galaxy S4 mini, a mid-range variant of its flagship smartphone, Galaxy S4.

How To Apply A Different Wallpaper To Each Android Home Screen

A wallpaper on Android can be applied in two ways. We can either use scrolling wallpaper which is a stretched landscape picture that slides a little as we move from one home screen to another or we can use a static wallpaper that doesn’t scroll when we change home screen.
I am not sure how many of you are aware of the fact, but some entry level touch screen Samsung phones (Corby and Monte) used to come with a feature using which one could apply distinct wallpaper to each home screen. I loved this feature and wanted something similar on my device as well.

Different wallpapers for different home screens can be used like we use sound profiles, and here’s how you can get the functionality on your Android smartphone. We will be using MultiPicture Live Wallpaper, a live wallpaper app for Android, for the task.
Note: The app doesn’t work on HTC devices running Sense 3 (and above) user interface. I tried the app on Samsung Galaxy Ace and HTC One X. It worked perfectly in the former but failed …
