We just heard about the release plans for HTC's One-series of Androids in Europe, but we're still partially in the dark when it comes to the company's plan for the lineup in the States. There have been plenty of signs lately pointing to the coming release of the One S on T-Mobile, from its certification at the FCC, to some video surfacing showing an in-development One S running T-Mobile software. It's been looking like the phone is nearly ready to go, but we haven't had much of a guess for exactly when to expect it. A new leak out today attempts to nail-down that date, claiming we'll see ...

HTC came to Mobile World Congress with its brand new One series of smartphones which includes the flagship One X alongside the One S and the One V. The Taiwanese manufacturer announced the availability for the entire series for some regions in Europe. If you are living in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you'll gladly find out that the One X, One S and One V will be available starting April 2, which is next Monday. If you're interested in more details (such as technical specifications), make sure to check out our related posts for each phone and don't miss our hands-ons in Barcelona, as ...

Shortly after HTC formally revealed its new One-series of Androids, we learned that T-Mobile was planning to introduce the phone to the US market. The carrier put up a page for the phone with some information on it and a way to sign-up for more info, but it didn't have anything like a release date to share. As we wait to learn the details of its launch, a video of the One S has surfaced, showing the phone running on T-Mobile. The interesting thing about the handset in this video is the absence of T-Mobile branding; the image of the phone hosted on the carrier's site shows how we expect it ...

If you live in the U.K., you can already pre-order the HTC One X and the HTC One S from at least one retailer but now Vodafone U.K. has listed both phones on its website for those who want to secure their unit. Both phones are listed as free for monthly contracts above £41 (for the One X) and £36 (for the One S). You can also choose a cheaper monthly contract but then you'll have to pay anywhere between £299 and £99 for the One X, depending on the agreement (£199 and £99 options for cheaper contracts with the One S). To check out further details and plans, make sure to follow the ...

A new HTC device just saw its certification documents published by the FCC. The paperwork makes it clear that it's a smartphone, but offers us precious little insight into the phone's true identity. Just what HTC handset might we be looking at here? The model in question is the HTC PK76110. That number doesn't look like it's been tied to any known upcoming HTC phone; the only real hits on it trace back to a WiFi Alliance certification from last month. Delving into the FCC docs, we get a basic look at the phone's dimensions from its antenna layout schematic. As for frequency support, the ...

HTC's 2012 Android line is all about the One phones, with the X and S enjoying their MWC debut -- while the One V only saw an non-functional but rather pleasurable introduction. The details regarding the One X and the One S are already out there but there is no exact information on availability. According to e-tailer Phones4U, the One X and the One S, on pre-order in the U.K. online with the aforementioned merchant, will be both shipping starting April 6. There were some reports of possible delays due to Snapdragon S4 chips but we sure hope it's not the case and we're looking forward to ...

It's that time of the year again, when we're both happy and sad, excited and disappointed all at the same time. Last year's Mobile World Congress was all about three things: Android, 3D and speed offered by emerging dual-core processors. This year's show was not that much different at all, if you come to think of it. It's safe to assume that everyone who was there -- or following our MWC coverage -- understands that, again, Android was all over the place. With or without Ice Cream Sandwich on smartphones or tablets, the Google platform -- and its OEM partners -- has flooded the show floors ...

If the rumors we're hearing today about smartphone delays are accurate, we're going to be looking at a lot of handsets coming out quite a bit later than we'd like. We just looked at Nokia's Lumia 900 and the theory that it wouldn't land at AT&T until late April. That was bad enough, but this next rumor has the potential to affect a whole lot more smartphone customers. Supposedly, semiconductor manufacturer TSMC in Taiwan abruptly halted fabrication of chips made with a 28-nanometer process sometime last month. The details on just why it may have taken such drastic action aren't available, ...

There should be no doubt at all that Nokia went all in -- and won it all -- when it comes to imaging on a phone with its latest PureView 808, a Belle smartphone that has a 41-megapixel imaging sensor. However, HTC is proud of the imaging capabilities on its One line-up, even if the specs are "no PureView". Following the source link below you'll get to HTC's Facebook page where the manufacturer has uploaded some sample images, claiming to be taken with a One phone. There's no word on which one but, the One V being ruled out, we suppose they're from either the One X or One S. They both sport ...

We've heard about HTC's upcoming Sense 4.0 (to run on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) on the new "One" line-up since the end of January but it was only now that we managed to take a good look at what the Taiwanese company was preparing. HTC Sense 4.0 is trying to make Android a little nicer and more intuitive on the HTC One X, HTC One S (and One V, whenever that will be ready) but the phone we tested it on (One S) was a little slow for the needs of Sense 4.0 (maybe because of the slower, dual-core processor, opposed to the quad-core on a variant of the One X). However, HTC didn't ...

If you were wondering how the new HTC One S compares to a couple of the most popular phones available on the market then you'll be interested to see the video below. We asked ourselves the same question and we looked at the HTC One S while stacking it against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Apple iPhone 4S. How big, heavy, thin and sexy is the One S compared to the aforementioned? Check out the video below and let us know of what you think.
