    Going back a little over a month by now, we've been fielding rumors of the HTC Zara, a smartphone first revealed to us by means of some specs and that codename, and later showing up in renders. Zara's always been a bit of a tough nut to crack, and we've scratched our heads at some length trying to work out how the phone might finally arrive, and where precisely it would fit into HTC's existing lineup. Our feeling was that the hardware as described felt more powerful than a Desire 600 – the top of the Desire food chain – yet a bit less capable than a phone like the One Mini. If a new ...

    Rumors about the HTC Zara extend back a little over a month by this point. The solidly mid-range Android has subsequently seen its specs leak, as well as a possible render. As we still wait to get the official story on this phone, a sibling has already emerged, with HTC's model 301e rumored to be the Zara Mini. Revealed through official TENAA filings, the so-called Zara Mini definitely looks like a downgrade from the bigger Zara, losing its stereo BoomSound speakers. The specs we've heard attributed to this model reinforce that notion: the Mini's dual-core SoC would only run at 1GHz, it ...

    When companies fight, customers (usually) lose - but podcasters win, big time. On this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, we'll be reaping some of the few benefits of the great Google-Microsoft battle of 2013: namely, the ability to piss and moan and armchair-quarterback. Fortunately, we've got plenty of ammunition for the discussion, as we're also fresh from customizing our own Moto X devices, re-reviewing the Surface RT, and observing the initial, wobbly launch efforts behind the ATIV S Neo - not to mention wildly speculating about the almost-certainly-fictitious HTC One (Windows Phone 8 ...

    There's been no shortage of rumors concerning a particular HTC phone, codenamed Zara, in the past couple of weeks. We were even wondering what's up with all of that, and today we're being treated to an early, alleged, glimpse of the phone, in the shape of a leaked render.

    Every time I sit down to write about HTC, and the latest misstep the company's taking, I feel compelled to point out my generally positive feelings for the manufacturer – ever since the HTC Dream, I've associated the brand with platform-leading Android hardware. Of course, HTC sure seems to have put out a concerted effort in the years that followed to sully that image, but the last year or so has been building up to a period of contrition for the company; it really seemed to get the message behind why users weren't sticking around, and had me believing that it was willing to change. So ...

    It's only been a couple days since we first heard the name HTC Zara, and the rumored smartphone keeps popping up over and over again. Yesterday we checked out the claim that the plastic-body smartphone might be coming to Sprint at some point, and was envisioned as sort of a cross between the One and Desire families. Today we get some actual hardware specs to help flesh-out that picture. Supposedly, we're looking at a 4.5-inch qHD handset running a Snapdragon 400 at 1.4GHz. It could be equipped with 8GB of on-board flash (expandable via microSD) and 1GB of RAM. Look for another of HTC's ...

    Yesterday we heard a new HTC codename for the first time: the Zara. The rumor out of China talked about both the Zara and the T6, which we're looking forward to as the One Max. It talked a little about how Zara would be a plastic phone, in contrast to the metal T6, and while we had some guesses about this actually being a plastic-bodied HTC One, we were seriously hurting for details. Well, today we get might be a few new pieces to the puzzle, courtesy of tipster @evleaks. Supposedly, in the US AT&T has its eyes on the T6/One Max, and Zara might end up on Sprint. For the Zara ...
