    Can't get enough of the HTC One M9, or need something to get you through the wait (until our review gets published or you get your hands on one)? Don't worry, HTC's got you covered. The Taiwanese phone maker has published a set of HTC One M9 videos to its YouTube channel, each dealing with a certain aspect of the 2015 flagship. Whether you're interested in the build (chassis, colors), camera performance, or the brand new Sense 7, you will surely find something to get excited about (or something to complain about, or even criticize) in the videos below. And, since we've already mentioned ...

    Updated with high-quality audio cut below. Enjoy! Getting back on the horse. Getting back into the groove. Getting the warp core back on-line. However you phrase it, getting back on-track is exactly what we're doing on this week's podcast, settling back into the studio chairs after over a week in Barcelona handling the hottest mobile technology (and podcasting from unconventional venues). On this week's episode, we're paid a special visit by someone we've heard from before – but he's fresh from his very first Apple experience and full of not only Apple Watch knowledge ... but new ...

    HTC's latest and greatest is out, and we're really excited about the latest member of the One family; however, in order to really form a proper opinion, we'll have to wait and see how it will perform in our review labs, once we get it. Until then you can check out our MWC 2015 videos and coverage of the One M9, to get you through the wait. And, talking about waiting, those of you who live in Taiwan are lucky to be able to grab the phone, as the HTC One M9 sales will commence on March 16, Monday. Future owners will be able to choose from three color options (dual-tone silver and rose gold, ...

    Late last spring, months after HTC had launched the One M8, we saw the arrival of a close cousin, the plastic-bodied, Duo-Camera-less One E8. While it packed much of the same guts as its flagship relative, the changes HTC made allowed the company to sell the E8 for a couple hundred dollars less than the M8. Now that the One M9 is here, will we see a corresponding One E9 edition? That's looking confirmed, as an “HTC E9pw” shows up on China's version of the FCC. The weird thing is that this year the E9 looks to be less a plastic M9 than a new phone in and of itself. Rumors had already ...

    As recently as last week, the phrase "virtual reality headset" was, for me, a guaranteed ticket to a midday nap. I'd grown up amid the fizzle of projects like Sega VR and Virtual Boy; I'd seen several variations on more modern smartphone-powered visors; I'd tried out an Oculus headset. While I enjoyed the latter experience, I also forgot about it pretty quickly. With its ungainly hardware, nausea-inducing graphics, and limited mass adoption, VR has never topped my list of fun things in tech. So when HTC brought us to Barcelona for a briefing on its new virtual reality device, I ...

    Mobile World Congress 2015: an iterative flagship smartphone and a reimagined one. A handheld intelligent object and a new midranger from a very old brand. And enough wearable releases to completely cover your forearms in technology. But mainly ... we just talk about the Vive. That’s right: against all odds, a room full of former virtual reality skeptics is rendered screamy-excited by a demo of HTC’s new VR headset – and one longtime MWC veteran even goes on the record to say that the HTC Vive is the most exciting product he’s ever seen at the show. We’ll talk about that, plus ...

    When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 (and Galaxy S6 Edge) at MWC last week, it gave us a clear idea about the start of retail sales for the pair, confirming global availability as of April 10. That's great for Samsung, but what about the other big high-profile flagship launch at MWC, the HTC One M9? Dates for that have been a lot harder to come by: HTC itself offered a mid-March timeframe, while carriers have been even less specific, talking about Q2 and spring. As we await more formal news of just when One M9 sales will get underway, a retailer might be able to clue us in a little early, ...

    HTC's MWC press event this past Sunday brought us the One M9 along with a few hardware surprises, but what we didn't get was anything like the rumored quad HD larger-screened One M9 Plus. Had all the reports been as wrong about that as they were about the M9's Nexus 9/Desire-looking makeover? Well, there's always the possibility that it's coming at a later date. If that's to be the case, we could expect to see more leaks of the hardware emerge between no and whenever it finally does go official. As fate would have it, a new set of possible One M9 Plus imagery has just turned up - but can ...

    Have the big flagship launches of MWC 2015 convinced you it's time to get a new smartphone? Oh, who are we kidding? With devices as desirable as the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6, you probably didn't need too much convincing, anyway. But as you start wondering about whether or not you should pick one of these guys up when sales open in the near future, what are you thinking in terms of pricing? Neither manufacturer has yet shared any official pricing data, and while many smartphone shoppers in the US are still going the carrier subsidized route, a growing number of shoppers are ...

    Just a couple days into its run, and Mobile World Congress 2015 is already starting to slow down - way down.  That's largely a consequence of so many manufacturers jockeying to get their big announcements out first, leading to a pre-MWC Sunday that was positively stuffed to the brim with new hardware. Ever since, the flow of new phones, tablets, and wearables has been slowing down, though we still got a pretty impressive showing yesterday. Today's offerings have been a bit harder to come by, but we still got to see some good stuff. Let's take a look back on what you might have missed. ...

    Why have you been following the launches at MWC 2015? Are you interested in seeing it all like we are, or are you here for the big flagship debuts? Either way, this year's show offers few reasons to be disappointed. If your interests lie with those flagships, you've no doubt been paying a lot of attention to the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. Now we're focusing on just these two models in our latest MWC 2015 video hands-on. If you've already watched our day with the One M9 and hands-on with the Galaxy S6, you're off to a good start, but this time we're less interested in what these ...

    It's the battle of the flagships - which translates to a battle for your pocket, not to mention your hard-earned money! At MWC 2015 Pocketnow was able to go hands-on with both the HTC One M9 as well as Samsung's Galaxy S6 - both the crown jewel of their respective companies. The question on everyone's mind: which flagship should you get, the HTC One M9 or Samsung Galaxy S6? Let's look at the pros and cons, weigh our options, and see if we can come up with a suitable answer. Construction This year, Samsung stepped up its game, getting rid of the "plastic band-aid" on the back of its phone, ...

    There’s a thing that happens at mobile trade shows ... we'll call it "time evaporation." Like Bloc Party, you make plans for good times, only to get bogged down and distracted – by videos. And articles. And all the work involved in bringing you all the news that’s fit to leave the beautiful bastion of Barcelona during the tumultuous to-do that is the Mobile World Congress. And this is how the best laid plans of pods and casts go awry. But somewhere in there, you remember that two and a half years ago you made a promise: you said you’d never miss a single week of your recurring ...

    Did you know that MWC doesn't technically get started until tomorrow, March 2? If you've been following today's news, that's going to seem like crazy talk to you, but manufacturers just can't wait until Monday to share word of all their new products with you, leading to today's flood of early announcements. We got to see a lot of hot new hardware, including some of what promises to be the biggest smartphones of the season, and we're only getting started. Let's take a look at everything Sunday's MWC launches had to offer us: HTC beat Samsung to the flagship-launch punch with the ...

    HTC's leading off the big MWC 2015 announcements with its One M9, just made official at the company's press event. Over the past few weeks we've looked at a number of conflicting theories on what the phone would bring us, so if you found yourself getting too attached to one of the concept designs that failed to pan out, today's news might seem like a bit of a let-down. That needn't be the case, because the One M9 HTC ultimately delivered turns out to be a pretty capable-sounding powerhouse in its own right. Let's take a look at just what went into building this handset: HTC One M9 specs ...

    A new age of smartphones is upon us. HTC has just announced the new One M9, and Samsung is set to go official with its Galaxy S6 within another few hours, which means that carriers have plenty of new smartphones to take care of and sell, and that these companies will begin announcing plans to carry these new devices very soon. The HTC One M9 carrier availability announcements have been kicked off today by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. AT&T only goes as far as to announce its intent to carry the device, simply stating that it's "coming soon." It has set up a landing page for the ...

    The HTC One M8 was one of the top Android phones of 2014 (and it still is a notable device if you're not looking to buy the latest and greatest). However, if you think it's time to upgrade, HTC has got you covered with the brand new HTC One M9, a step-up in every aspect from the 2014 model. The differences, as you will see in our HTC One M9 vs HTC One M8 video comparison below, are apparent from the second you lay your hands on the One M9. It's a lot less slippery than its predecessor, because HTC decided to go with a much stickier finish in order to avoid accidental drops. Just like the ...

    For the third year in a row, HTC is kicking off the Spring season with a smartphone called the One. And for the third year in a row it’s an aluminum powerhouse built to make the world take notice.

HTC One M9 Hands On   Hardware HTC cited the Porsche when explaining its approach to building the One M9, drawing a parallel to small iterations on a successful design. The company also said it wanted to strike a ...

    If you thought that the HTC One M9 was the only thing the Taiwanese company was preparing for MWC 2015, you were wrong. Enter the HTC Grip, the company's take on a fitness tracker, powered by UA Record, and Under Armour. Accurate tracking is the keyword HTC uses in describing the functionalities of the product, and also setting it aside from competitors. It supports a range of sports and activities, while being also a training companion and trainer combination that allows the user to set goals, and then strive to achieve them. The waterproof build houses an eight-inch PMOLED mono flexible ...

    HTC's launching well more than just the One M9 in Barcelona today, and beyond the company's latest Android flagship, we're also seeing it introduce it's long-rumored foray into the world of wearables, as it announces its first fitness tracker, the HTC Grip. Much like Microsoft did with its Band last year, HTC's stopping short of the full smartwatch routine with this wearable, focusing instead on doing a few key things (and hopefully doing them quite well). The cross-platform Grip works with either Android or iOS devices and features a 1.8-inch passive matrix OLED flexible touchscreen ...

    The day has arrived for HTC to unveil its latest flagship, the phone it's been teasing as “the new One.” From talk of project Hima, to leaks and rumors about the One M9, we've been following progress on this device for months now, and today in Barcelona, HTC has finally made the One M9 official. Just as the past week's rumors have suggested, the One M9 we're getting today is the one that takes the majority of its inspiration form the One M8's design, rather than making a radical departure into Desire/Nexus 9 territory. The One M9 gets a five-inch 1080p display, runs a Snapdragon 810 ...

    Unlike the Samsungs, LGs, Apples, and Motorolas of this world, HTC has always been a company laser-focused on smartphones. Last year we started to see signs of that changing, not only as the company expanded back out into tablets with the Nexus 9, but also into other mobile devices like the RE camera. At MWC this year, that expansion has continued with the HTC Grip fitness tracker, and now that trend continues as we learn of the company's first push into new virtual territory, announcing the HTC Vive Developer Edition through a partnership with Valve. Despite the HTC involvement, Vive ...

CEO Peter Chou has just taken the stage and is wasting no time in introducing us to the new One: the HTC One M9 The One M9 runs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810, features the new Sense 7, and drops the old Duo Camera setup for a single big 20MP sensor.

    For fans of HTC's smartphones, or even just those who appreciate some good pre-release info in general, today's proven to be an absolute treasure trove of insight into this still-unannounced handset. From still shots to video leaks, we're checking out the phone's hardware and software in ways usually reserved for launch day itself. This momentum isn't ready to break just yet, and now we turn our attention to the One M9's SoC, which Qualcomm sure seems to be teasing will be its Snapdragon 810. As you can see in the stills from Qualcomm's Vine teaser above (and in the video embedded below), ...

    We just shared with you a couple new HTC One M9 renders, appearing to confirm that the design that's more One M8 than Nexus 9 may be the look that wins out. These arrived courtesy of leaker upleaks, and we're glad we got them when we did because his Twitter account has seemingly vanished in the past couple hours. He hasn't gone dark everywhere, though, and over on YouTube he just managed to share some of the best One M9 leaks we've seen to date, with a series of three very official-looking videos that further detail HTC's upcoming flagship. Once again, that M8-inspired design returns. The ...
