    Update: The render at the very bottom has been leaked by @upleaks, and it shows off the back of the alleged phone, complete with the three color options that will purportedly be available (though the duotone build is not visible from this angle). We can also look at the DuoCamera setup, as well as the dual-tone LED flash. Promotional images for HTC's April 8 event have been leaked yesterday, showing off the phone tentatively called the One M9+, and some of its key features. While said promo materials didn't mention the device by its name, today's set of leaked renders and slides ...

    Two years ago, when HTC Sense 5 debuted for the first-gen One, the company introduced us to BlinkFeed, a convenient way to access news and social updates at a glance. In the time since, BlinkFeed has matured on its way to new devices, eventually emerging in the Play Store as stand-alone launcher. With the One M9 now out, it's time for the next chapter in the BlinkFeed story, as HTC combines BlinkFeed with a few of its other offerings and re-brands them under the HTC Sense Home banner. In addition to BlinkFeed, HTC Themes and the Sense Home widget make their way into Sense Home, and the ...

    HTC looks to be on the roll lately, with the announcement of the One E9+, One M8s, and the Taiwanese 64GB variant of the One M9. There's still at least one phone to look out for; it's been rumored, it's been leaked, and now more HTC One M9+ details arrive thanks to some leaked promotional materials. Tentatively leaked in yesterday's renders, the HTC One M9+ is also subject to an April 8 event in Beijing. Following the same visual style are today's three promotional slides leaked, showing off various aspects of the upcoming phone. They emphasize on the screen, build (materials as well as ...

    Storage has been an on-and-off issue in the smartphone space the past couple years. Just years ago, microSD cards were all the rage for expandable storage, but then (just as quickly as they became popular) they faded away as software became less supportive and manufacturers embraced more daring designs for their devices. Then came woes of lack of storage, and then promptly, as a fix, phones with greater amounts of storage. So when HTC released the One M9 with no option hitting 64GB or above – while Samsung's Galaxy S6 comes in with a whopping 128GB on some variants – it became a bit of ...

    HTC's One M9 has just gone up for sale, giving Android fans their first opportunity to get their hands on this brand-new flagship. But for as attractive as high-end phones like the One M9 are, their sticker prices can turn away buyers looking for a solid smartphone experience without blowing all their disposable income. HTC's aware of this, and still wants to make new One-series hardware available to even those of us who don't want to sink a ton of cash on a new phone. To that end, today the company's announcing the affordable One M8s for smartphone shoppers in Europe. You can think of the ...

    For years, the biggest battle in the Android smartphone world has boiled down to three words: HTC vs Samsung. And 2015 is no different. But the results of this year's comparison ("Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One M9," if you wanna get all SEO about it) are very different indeed. While we still resist the urge to boil down a smartphone face-off into clearly defined "winner" and "loser," we remain obligated to call out trends where we see them. And this year, instead of siding with the underdog HTC, the winds of favor are blowing strongly in Samsung's direction. That's due to a combination ...

    After officially introducing the HTC One M9 -- make sure to check out our review in case you missed it -- at the 2015 MWC, the Taiwanese phone-maker followed up with a new phone announcement, introducing the HTC One E9+. However, the HTC One M9+ rumors don't seem to stop, after recently seeing what it is believed to be an official invite to an M9+ event. Now we're seeing to high-rez leaks leaked purportedly showing off the One M9+ (tentative name), an unannounced handset that takes the fingerprint scanner from the back of the One Max (M7 family), and puts is right were Samsung likes to ...

    I'm what most would call a "purist" when it comes to Android. The closer to AOSP a device can be, the better. Why? Several reasons, chief among them being consistency of experience and a timely updates - well, more timely than updates seem to come on devices with heavily modified versions of Android. All that having been said, a tablet running HTC Sense UI is a fantastic idea! Honeycomb Tablets running the Android operating system started to pop up around the same time that Apple released its insanely popular iPad. Android wasn't optimized for tablets back then (some would argue that it's ...

    Last week brought us plenty of news about HTC smartphones, and beyond the start of sales for the One M9, we spent a lot of time talking about upcoming HTC hardware. The company sent out a launch invite for what sure appeared to be the One M9+, and beyond that we got to check out a couple leaks concerning the One E9 and E9+. We'd been going on the assumption that one or both of those models might go official right alongside the One M9+ in about another week, but it looks like HTC couldn't even wait that long, as one of the phones pops up on HTC's Chinese website. There's still no sign of ...

    We are on a roll when it comes to HTC leaks and rumors this fine Friday, so why stop now? After all those phones we've been hearing about, and now this tablet that sounds like a Sense-running budget version of the Nexus 9, we've got one more to hit (at least, we think it's just one more – plenty of hours of left in the day) before the weekend rolls around: a new Desire model (or rather, pair of Desire models), the HTC A50AML. All we have right now are a few rumored specs: we're looking at an octa-core A53-based MediaTek Soc, 2GB of RAM, 16GB flash, and the presence of Android Lollipop ...

    We've spent the past few days looking at quite a few different phones that may soon go public at an April 8 HTC event in China: the One M9+, One E9, and One E9+. Looking past those, what's next for HTC? Even more phones? A new rumor suggests that the manufacturer may be about to introduce a new tablet, and it's one that sure sounds a heck of a lot like the Nexus 9. Supposedly HTC is working on a tablet designated as the T1H, and could be ready to launch it in China as soon as May. Of the leaked specifications we've seen, a large number of them align nearly perfectly with the Nexus 9: ...

    This week has proved to be a pretty busy one for HTC phones, and beyond the start of One M9 sales we've seen both leaks and official sources offer new information about a couple upcoming models. In addition to the One M9+ we've also been checking out the One E9, with leaked pics arriving from multiple sources. Now we round-out the week with a few more, as well as some clarification about model names. Remember how one of those leaks identified the phone as the One E9p, and we found ourselves scratching our heads a little, not seeing any obvious signs of differently-sized hardware that might ...

    HTC's Vice President of Design, Jonah Becker, announced on Twitter that he steps down from his role within HTC, after seventeen years of being with the company. While he prepares for his "new adventure" -- most probably outside of HTC -- we can't help but wonder what will happen to the Taiwanese phone maker and its upcoming models. Becker is one of the people you can thank for the great design of the HTC One M8 (and M9, since they're so alike), but his departure comes less than a year after taking on this position from his predecessor, Scott Croyle. Becker's announcement comes right after ...

    Update: Whew! The HQ audio podcast has been uploaded and distributed. You can either find your podcast landing pad or grab the original file through our Direct Download below! Late-night podcasts don't always have to be about naughty things. Sometimes, to paraphrase Bill Watterson, "the days are just packed," and the only time you've got for a podcast is 6:30 in the evening in between the crushing workload of two flagship smartphone reviews. But if you're lucky, when that happens you've got friends at other sites to help bail you out. Florence Ion is that friend on this special ...

    They've got almost nothing in common besides their aluminum casings – and that shouldn't come as too big a surprise. The iPhone 6 is Apple's crown jewel, a curved and super-thin ingot packing technologies cherry-picked by Apple to run its closed and meticulously managed iOS platform. By contrast, HTC's One M9 is a thick block of precision-machined metals, its sharp angles exaggerated by a dual-anodization manufacturing process, its software a heavily customized version of the much more mutable Android Lollipop. There's so much more to say – but it's all been said; to get the full ...

    We've seen what the HTC One M9 is all about (if you've missed our review, make sure to catch up on it), and now we're hearing official wording on the U.S. HTC One M9. We knew that US carriers would be picking up the 2015 HTC flagship, and now you can prepare to grab yours online at 12:01AM ET on Friday, March 27. The phone will also become available in retailer and carrier stores starting April 10, and, regardless of the carrier of your choice, you should be able to secure your unit if you are a customer of one of the "major carriers", to quote the official press release. As far as color ...

    Fancy yourself an HTC enthusiast? Today is very much proving to be your day, full of new finds concerning both the One M9+ and the One E9. Those new One E9 pics sure managed to reveal the phone from a number of angles, but they weren't very high-res and failed to show the phone in action. Still, considering the handset's unreleased nature, we're willing to take what we can get. As fate would have it, a much more impressive collection of images was just around the corner, and a recent find from a Chinese case-maker brings us a bunch of up-close pics of this new hardware – including in a ...

    The big HTC news out this morning is clearly the invite for the company's launch event in China next month, where it sure looks like the One M9+ will be making an appearance. And more than that invitation to gawk over, we also saw the arrival of some new leaked pics. But while we're still very interested in seeing that model go official, it's not the only in-development HTC Android we've been hearing about these last few weeks, and earlier this month we got to check out the HTC One E9 as it stopped by China's version of the FCC. Now that handset is back in a series of additional photos. ...

    With all the momentum that's been surrounding rumors and leaks of HTC's slightly larger cousin to the One M9, the phone that may launch as the One M9 Plus, One M9+, or something slightly different, it would be understandable to expect that something had to give: either it's nearly time for this smartphone to go official, or we'd soon find ourselves talking about it in the same breath as unreleased projects like the Surface Mini. As it happens, it looks like that “going official” route is indeed the one the M9+ is about to take, upon the arrival of an invite for a Chinese HTC event that ...

    By now you've heard the rumors that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC is "suffering from overheating issues". You're aware of the claims that the HTC One M9 gets "miserably hot". You've even seen what are purported to be thermal images of various devices, and the One M9 is glowing orange, ready to melt through the tabletop. But is any of it true? Tweakers.net published a very compelling image, one that (on first glance) would convince even the most vocal of naysayers. Unfortunately, it's not realistic.  The staff here at Pocketnow has used an HTC One M9 quite extensively, and on two ...

    Yesterday we took a look the latest info to arrive on the HTC One M9+ (or Plus – who knows?). It wasn't a huge leak, but it attempted to nail-down the phone's dimensions and included a newly constructed render of how the phone supposedly appeared. It was clear this wasn't a HTC-originated image, but one assembled by the source reporting this news, in an effort to protect his tipster. Now we're taking another look at the One M9+ as that same source share a little more about how he came by this information, while also constructing a physical mock-up of the phone. NowhereElseFr's Steve ...

    There are folks out there who don’t have the time for a ten-minute video or a 4,000-word review, and they certainly don’t have an hour to absorb a meandering podcast (no matter how many awards it’s won). These people might be sneaking a quick YouTube fix on a bathroom break, trying to make a point to a rival smartphone owner at a bar, or even standing in line at a wireless retail store, waiting to make a purchase. They need the facts delivered quickly, with a minimum of window dressing and a firm conclusion in as little time as possible. For them, we’ve created the 60-Second ...

    With HTC's One M9 firmly on its way to retail availability, we've recently found ourselves turning our attention to what might be next from the manufacturer. That's included models like the One M9+ (Plus), a slightly larger, slightly higher-res, and for some reason an apparently-Duo-Camera-keeping variant of the new flagship that may or may not still be on-track for launch. But beyond that, we've also been wondering about the next edition for HTC's Butterfly series of One cousins. Earlier this month we looked at a rumor claiming the Butterfly 3 could arrive as a 5.2-incher with a quad HD ...

    HTC's One M9 will soon be up for sale. We've already had the opportunity to spend some time reviewing the phone. And while all this progress continues towards the One M9's retail release, there's still a big unanswered question hanging over the phone's launch: what ever happened to the One M9 Plus? Rumors once suggested we'd see a jumbo-sized One M9 with a quad HD display debut alongside the five-incher we got, ready to offer some variety to users interested in something closer to a tablet. Today those rumors are back, attempting to provide some new insight into the phone's hardware. ...

    When the Nexus 9 launched last fall, we generally liked what we saw: performance was good, music sounded lovely through those front-facing stereo speakers, and it was a lot of fun getting to know Lollipop. And of the things we didn't love about the tablet – issues like build quality, or insufficient storage options – many could be lumped into a “it feels like we're paying too much for what we're getting” category. Luckily, that's the sort of thing that's easily resolved via a price cut, and the tablet started its life off with an utterly fantastic one, getting an early half-off ...
