    It's been just about one month now since HTC started confirming what everyone was already talking about, and began teasing its next smartphone launch. More teasers followed over the course of March, and yesterday we finally saw the manufacturer share details about the launch event that will finally see the presumptive HTC 10 go official, scheduled for April 12. We've got a couple weeks to go until we get there, however, which means HTC's got ample time to keep on teasing some of the phone's stand-out features. Last weak that meant teasing its “world class” cameras, and today HTC does ...

    This year has already brought us Samsung's latest Galaxy S7 flagship, Apple just launched the new iPhone SE, and the LG G5 will be in users' hands in just a matter of days. While all this new hardware has been great to see, we can't put together that list without noticing one big missing name: where's HTC with its latest Android handset? We've been keeping track of the story of first Perfume, then the One M10, and now maybe just the HTC 10 for months, and following some fantastic leaks going back the past few weeks now, not to mention a couple official teasers from HTC itself, it was ...

    Seeing as how HTC has held attractive sales every Tuesday for the past few months, heavily discounting everything from the One A9 phone to the Nexus 9 tablet and Re Camera, it’ll clearly take something special to get people interested in the One M9 so close to its sequel’s announcement. Today-only, by 11:59 pm PT, the no-contract, no-strings-attached 5-inch handheld costs just $650… with a Nexus 9 hitched on. That’s right, if you hurry, you can score the fall 2014-released stock Android 9-incher completely for free. That’s a whopping $400 value, and so, instead of paying $1,050 ...

    Since we're talking about leak manager Evan Blass and the HTC 10, we should probably just get down to it. He posted another render of this speculative and divisive device onto Twitter this morning along with a couple of specs. Also, take a look at the date on the screen ... Not sure if this has been reported yet, but HTC 10 features a super LCD 5 display - not AMOLED. Battery = 3000mAh pic.twitter.com/NbWonSaC3T — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 20, 2016 So, no AMOLED as seen on the One A9, but then again, we didn't see the use of Super LCD 4 on any HTC device. The 3Ah battery looks to be ...

    It's been a while now since we had ourselves a proper HTC 10 teaser, after the manufacturer whetted our appetite with an initial teaser late last month, followed by a video teaser in early March. While the weeks that have followed have brought us plenty of leaks, as well as new rumors about when HTC is likely to finally launch this flagship, we haven't seen any new promos from HTC itself. At least, that was true up until a couple of hours ago, when HTC released its very latest HTC 10 teaser, putting the spotlight on the phone's camera performance. HTC says that both front and back, the HTC ...

    Things have been relatively quiet on the HTC Android 6.0 updating front for the past couple of months, as the Taiwanese device manufacturer slowly spread the One M8 and One M9 Marshmallow love worldwide, including on pretty much all major US carriers. But now the calm is just about to turn into a storm, as several older and newer mid-rangers get ready to follow their flagship cousins on the battery life, security and performance-enhancing M bandwagon. First up, you have your HTC Desire Eye, “confirmed” a couple of months ago as headed to software heaven, and reportedly receiving ...

    Apart from giving Samsung and LG important head starts with an April announcement of its redesigned One M9 sequel, HTC is also seeing buzz reduced by each new visual exposé. And we’ve had plenty of those lately, including two separate batches of press renders in every shade imaginable, as well as several partial real-life sightings. Now, the HTC 10, formerly known as One M10 or Perfume, crops up in full-frontal and sexy back live pics, which truly leave nothing to the imagination. Of course, we already expected the 5.2-incher or so to sport chamfered edges meant to clearly separate it ...

    To hear the latest rumors, we're just under six weeks away from HTC announcing its latest flagship smartphone. We've called it Perfume, the One M10, and most recently just the HTC 10. So far this month, we've already taken a closer look at the phone than ever before, thanks to the publication of both some nice hands-on shot of the hardware, as well as the release of quite a few renders. Today we've got a new set to check out, and while they might look pretty familiar, we're still picking up some fresh information. Take a quick glance at the four renders we have of the HTC 10 here in a ...

    Smartphone users don't tend to be the most patient bunch in the world: we want faster data, new phones sooner, and software update now, now, now. On the hardware front, that need for speed has extended to way we power our phones; the old days of waiting hours and hours for a smartphone to get a full charge are long over, replaced with modern fast-charging tech. When HTC launched its One A9 late last year, some shoppers may have raised an eyebrow at the phone's petite 2150mAh battery, but at least there was Quick Charge 2.0 support – and better still, the promise of Quick Charge 3.0 to ...

    For a couple months now, rumors of Google's 2016 Nexus phone lineup have been almost singular in their vision: rather than Huawei coming back for another round, or Google turning to frequent collaborator LG, multiple reports have suggested that the Nexus family could return to its roots with Google recruiting HTC to build a pair of handsets. While we haven't seen much in the way of evidence to support that theory, it's still managed to build up a bit of momentum, with recent reports turning their attention to possible features like a pressure-sensitive touch screen. Now the latest rumor ...

    It’s HTC Hot Deals day again, our bargain-hunting US-based friends, and for the first time in roughly a month, you’re actually looking at a substantial discount offered on a desirable product. Well, as desirable as HTC devices not called Vive can be. Mere weeks ahead of HTC 10’s life-or-death launch, the One A9 is sold for a price much closer to its true market value. Namely, $400 in unlocked form or outright for AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint use. There’s no Verizon support coming after all, we’re afraid, which might be one of the reasons the promotion is happening in the first ...

    It's no secret that HTC needs to turn its business around, and the company's most recent monthly financial report only highlights just how low revenues have fallen. From a manufacturer that was once a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone market, the company's share of total sales has been scraping the bottom of the barrel, and days of profits long ago transitioned to those of losses. Can new hardware directions like those offered by the Vive VR headset help return HTC to its former glory? While it's too soon to say for sure, some recent stock market activity indicates that investors ...

    Last week brought us some exciting new chapters in the story of the road to HTC's next flagship, starting with a change of name: rather that One M10, what if the manufacturer released the smartphone simply as the HTC 10? That new name was followed by the release of some of the best imagery of the handset to date, including both hands-on pics and some legitimate-looking renders. And if you were to take a moment and look closely at that render, you might notice the system date set for April 19: did we have our first real hint at when to expect a launch event? As we wait to see if HTC will ...

    How long before quarterly HTC device sales drop from millions back in the day to thousands to mere hundreds? Not long, if the Taiwanese company keeps up its recent streak of bad luck and insists on manufacturing products people are simply not interested in anymore. Okay, perhaps we’re exaggerating a bit with the “hundreds” prediction, but in February, HTC’s unaudited consolidated revenue sat at a lousy NT$4.2 billion, or $129 million. That’s less than what Apple makes in a day, and it equates to a little over 250,000 unlocked One A9 copies. Of course, HTC also sold (or at least ...

    Before you go shouting "duh," let's get our bearings straight here. We've been working on getting a date for this upcoming HTC 10 phone only to have it sink into a mushy timeline associated with the company's new smartwatch that we mustn't forget about. Of course, we at Pocketnow (as evidenced in this week's Weekly podcast) are still aching for specifics. Backchannel specialist Evan Blass believes he has an answer of sorts: In case it wasn't obvious, I'd say that Tuesday, April 19th -- the date on the screen -- is nearly a lock for HTC 10 launch. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 5, 2016 ...

    We’ve come a long way from calling HTC’s next-gen flagship O2 to a much more logical and recognizable One M10, with the weird-sounding Perfume filed under, well, weird codenames, but as it turns out, the Taiwanese device manufacturer might ultimately be looking to pull a Sony. After saying goodbye to the perennially troubled Xperia Z family, trustworthy tech insider Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, claims we’ll have to bid adieu to the HTC One M lineup too before long. Possibly, the One roster as a whole, though the A9 may still get a sequel in the fall. As far as One M9’s follow-up is ...

    As the news goes for red, it shall go for magenta. Mo Versi has tweeted yet again, and if you're an owner of a carrier-branded HTC device, you've probably been looking forward to his tweets to see when your phone gets the next Android update. T-Mobile HTC One M8 owners, your update is Marshmallow and your starting date is March 7. Just like Verizon. [center] Great news on T-Mobile HTC One (M8) owners! We have received technical approval on Marshmallow! OTA to start on 3/7. Thank you @mvenugopal — Mo Versi (@moversi) March 4, 2016 [/center] We're still waiting on AT&T to get its act ...

    HTC Vive sales had a short stumble as its first batch of devices had all been ordered up, leaving the product sold out on the website. While things are back up again and backorder fulfilments are now up through May, the company's still figuring out at how it can extend sales. Dan O'Brien, vice president of planning and product management for HTC Vive, said in an interview with FORTUNE that the company will "have PC bundles with Vive-optimized PCs on our website soon," but he doesn't think that "PC bundles will be a major driver of sales." As a reminder, the major stumbling blocks for any ...

    What does the future hold for HTC's One-series of smartphones? With it looking increasingly likely that the company's next flagship will drop both the One name and its M-designation, will models like the One A9 and One X9 be the last of their kind? We don't know about that just yet, but we're finding last year's One A9 back in the news today as we get some bad news about the phone's carrier support, as HTC confirms that the One A9 ultimately won't support Verizon as planned. HTC always sold the One A9 with support for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, but Verizon support was supposed to be ...

    Some day soon, HTC will most likely announce plans for its next smartphone launch event, setting the stage for the arrival of the follow-up to last year's One M9, and while we've been hearing plenty about what to expect from the phone over the past few months, and have had more than one opportunity to check out some leaked imagery of the new hardware, our picture of the phone is only now starting to become clear. That's just as true for the handset's name as anything else, and while there's long been the suggestion that the phone might not launch as the One M10, it's taken until today for ...

    Say what you will about the striking similarities between the One A9 and recent iPhones, the One M9 and M8, and HTC’s decision to wait until after MWC to unveil the One M10, aka just 10. But when it comes to software updates, the Taiwanese OEM clearly has the edge over at least one of its Korean arch-rivals so far this year. While Samsung stumbled and fumbled the oft-delayed “global” Marshmallow rollout for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, as well as the S6 Edge+ and Note 5, HTC deployed 6.0 goodies for its unlocked One M8 and M9 way back in December. Despite having multiple priorities ...

    The glow of MWC 2016 is fading, and we've shared our early reactions to the new devices announced. Did Samsung build an unbreakable phone? Will anyone actually buy the LG G5? Plenty of people pre-ordered the HTC Vive, which is a good thing considering the M10's first teaser vid was a dud. Are folks game to play with a new voice assistant? Soundhound thinks you'll be impressed with their new helper. We've been hard at work covering news stories and prepping for the next generation of phone reviews. We recently started a new series of videos delving deeper into tech explanations and ...

    For about the past month now, HTC rumors have largely focused on the company's efforts to deliver its next flagship, the presumptive One M10. But back in January we were as much thinking about the One M10 as we were a couple other rumored HTC phones, as the suggestion arrived that the company could be involved with creating this year's new Nexus models. Subsequent reports of Google itself becoming much more involved in the hardware side of the Nexus equation left us a little unsure exactly what HTC's role would be, but the rumors persisted – especially as LG said it wouldn't be returning ...

    HTC may not seem to be in any big rush to announce the One M10, electing not to bring its latest flagship along to MWC last week, but we recently started seeing signs that the company is finally getting ready to make the phone official. One such hint arrived a week ago as HTC dropped what sure looked like its first real One M10 teaser, giving us a taste of the handset's design while telling us to get read for the “power of 10.” Now that same tagline is back in a fresh HTC teaser, as the company takes to video to promote the One M10. You'd think that a video spot would open up the ...

    Well, someone's proud of their work. After a ton of build-up, the HTC Vive was unleashed unto the world, at least in pre-order form. HTC VR Product Specialist Shen Ye revealed on Twitter that its Vive headset blew past 15,000 pre-orders in under 10 minutes of its availability. [center] Woah, more than 15k units in less than 10min :o — Shen Ye (@shen) February 29, 2016 [/center] As a side note, while we don't have any hard numbers on the Oculus Rift, we do know that pre-order shipment batches were depleted all the way through May by the end of the first day. A pre-order today would mean a ...
