OnePlus tablet, recent HTC Volantis specs turn out to be hoax

You know that old saying of, “If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is”? Looks like that applies to not one, but two articles we covered yesterday. As it turns out, both the OnePlus tablet and new HTC Volantis specifications were the result of a hoax. According to @evleaks, the tips came from a 14-year-old posing as a Google engineer.

Let’s hope these were blips on a radar and that Evan Blass (evleaks) doesn’t fall victim to such chicanery again. On one hand we see him taking a stronger stance in vetting his sources and leaks; one the other hand we see more people taking a crack at his defense system.
