    HTC's “double exposure” event this week is shaping up to bring us an interesting mix of knowns and unknowns; while on one hand we've had the benefit of numerous teasers, leaks, and rumors to help prime us for what to expect, there's still a fair amount of uncertainty regarding the hardware that will ultimately be on display. The RE Camera accessory looks like a given, and we're feeling better and better about our chances of seeing that Desire Eye, but will that be it? Despite the “double” in the event's title, there could easily be additional hardware on the menu, and one such ...

    HTC's New York event is just days away, when we're expecting to see the company confirm this so-called Desire Eye we've been hearing so much about in recent weeks. If the renders that surfaced last week are any indication, this handset could have a front-facing camera to put most other smartphones to shame, with not just a flash and a 13MP sensor, but a big, light-catching lens, as well. Over the weekend, some new pics of the Desire Eye started making the rounds, giving us a look at the phone's entire body and pointing out some new features. While that last leak showed us the phone's top ...

    For the past week or so, our Nexus-device attention has been directed at the Motorola-made Nexus 6, with more and more imagery of the unreleased Android leaking online. And while we are very excited to pick up more information on that handset, it's not the only upcoming Nexus model we've been following. Last month also brought us a fair share of rumors concerning an HTC Nexus 9 tablet, which could also be preparing to launch in just a few more weeks. Today we've got a double dose of Nexus 9 news for you, taking a look at what sure seem to be the tablet's FCC paperwork, while also getting a ...

    Well this is unexpected: HTC's got its “double exposure” event coming up next week on October 8, when we're expecting to see it launch new models like that selfie-optimized Desire Eye. But even though we're still five days away from that shindig, at least one new HTC phone is breaking cover a little early, as the Desire 612 makes itself known on Verizon's website. While the 612's not listed among the HTC models Verizon advertises for sale, we do find the phone hiding away as the newest entry to the carrier's page of support docs for HTC handsets. The listing there gives us a thumbnail ...

    One year ago, HTC found itself in a tight spot. Despite the generally warm reception the first-gen HTC One received, the sales just weren't there, and as the manufacturer reported its quarterly earnings figures, it revealed a shocker: it was facing a loss of more than a hundred million dollars. Since then, we've been watching to see if HTC could get back on its footing. Earlier this year, we were still looking at losses, but last quarter turned things around, with the manufacturer pulling in north of $75 million. Today the latest HTC quarterly numbers are available, and while it wasn't ...

    The last time we heard about the upcoming HTC phone, tentatively named "Eye", was with the occasion of a report that claimed it will sport a 13MP DuoCamera setup. At that time we thought this was no big deal, as the Butterfly 2 already ditched the "four-megapixel UltraPixel" DuoCamera in favor of a 13MP DuoCamera setup. The report was also not in line with previous rumors that claimed the "Eye" would be a "selfie-phone". Today's leak sheds some light on the matter, however, don't forget to grab your pinch of salt. For starters, we're not looking at the HTC One M8 Eye, but rather at the HTC ...

    HTC has been making smartphones for a very long time. The company was often used by big-name OEMs as the manufacturing company that built their hardware. Compaq and HP (back when they were in the personal digital assistant business) both used HTC to build their devices, which were arguably some of the best pieces of consumer electronics of the day. But what about an HTC tablet? HTC Tablets HTC has made some very high-end smartphones recently. The One M8 lineup looks and feels great, thanks in part to its aluminum construction - which doesn't bend like Apple's latest aluminum smartphones. ...

    Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6 has definitely made a ton of headlines. From the acclaimed “bendgate” issues of the iPhone 6 Plus, to this being Apple’s best selling iPhone lineup in history, a lot is to be expected from Apple’s latest and greates smartphone. Is this iPhone really worth your money, or should you consider other Android options in the market? My Twitter account has been on fire lately, and that’s mainly because I was the guy that ditched the iPhone 5s for an HTC One M8 a few months ago. Now that everyone has learned that I’m back to using an iPhone 6, it’s ...

    October is just days away, which puts us close to the one-year anniversary of HTC's launch of its One Max phablet. The 5.9-inch handset brought a fingerprint scanner to the company's smartphone lineup, and despite the model keeping the One's design language and offering a solid user experience, it failed to really sell in droves. Will this year bring us a follow-up model? We've heard a little about a possible One Max 2 (or One M8 Max), and now a new rumor attempts to fill us in on a few hardware specifics. Instead of another 5.9-incher, this report claims that we could be in for a slightly ...

    The "Eye"-codenamed upcoming HTC device is still a mystery. Depending on who you tend to believe, it's all about either the front-facing camera -- for a brand new "selfie" phone, like we didn't have enough of those already -- or, like this most recent report claims, about the main camera. In any case, the consensus is that the "Eye" tentative moniker describes some sort of camera functionality. Today's HTC One M8 Eye rumors try to predict several things: first off, we're seeing the phone being "placed" in the One M8 family, where the original One M8, and the newcomer, the One M8 running ...

    Last night we saw HTC deliver the first teaser video for one of the products it's planning to launch at its October 8 “double exposure” event. Apparently dubbed the RE Camera, we seem to be looking at a small handled or mountable tube-shaped rugged camera, intended for uses ranging from extreme sport helmet-cam action to just snapping a more convenient selfie with friends. Yesterday's video may have showed us what the RE Camera is capable of doing, but it really didn't give us much of a look at the hardware itself. But now some new pics have been uncovered that sure appear to reveal ...

    HTC's “double exposure” event is coming up on October 8, and rumors have suggested that in addition to a selfie-optimitzed smartphone, we could also see the manufacturer introduce a new camera accessory. Reports of a rugged camera with cross-platform compatibility and a tube-shaped construction conjured up thoughts of something a bit GoPro-ish, and now HTC is beginning to directly tease the product's launch, publishing a new video and setting up a social presence for what it seems to be calling its RE Camera. The promotional clip sure fits with the idea of a rugged, extremely portable ...

    Rumors about an HTC-made Nexus 9 have been kicking around for months now, but it's only been over the course of the past two or so when those rumors really started to come together and feel like they were describing a product that truly was going to launch. More recently, that momentum's been helped out by the discovery of a growing body evidence pointing (at the very least) to HTC's work on a new tablet. Today, The Wall Street Journal weighs-in on the rumors, as its sources describe why Google is supposedly going with HTC, rather than a more established tablet-maker like Samsung. While a ...

    Updated with the high-quality edited version of the podcast, which you can stream or download down below (or through your favorite podcatcher app). We hope you enjoyed; we'll check back in with you next week! If you ask us, the first thing you should do on iPhone launch day is take a long, hard look at the competition. Not because the iPhone is a bad product, but because everyone else tends to step up their game when Apple brings a new phone –or two– to the yard. And that's more true than ever this year. With that in mind, we'll talk about all kinds of smartphone and smartwatch ...
