As they're running Android, Sony Xperia phones have now joined the Fortnite fray with HTC and Motorola phones and everyone else!
Sony, Huawei and HTC made their Android 9 update plans official, complete with list of devices that will get some Pie love soon.
HTC's track record has been downward for several years now and this past month was an especially steep step to the ground.
Slightly more durable than last year's U11, the new HTC U12+ still presents a number of worrisome build quality vulnerabilities.
While it's a sequential gain, the year-on slide is horrid. That said, much hangs in the balance on a momentous June with sales of a new flagship starting.
"A phone that is more than the sum of its specs" is coming on May 23, and there are no prizes for guessing said phone is the oft-rumored HTC U12+.
We may finally be just a little over a month away from the commercial launch of the HTC U12+ at a 128GB price of around $850. Will it stand a chance?
That’s the exact recipe HTC needs for the HTC U12 and U12+ for it to be a success – better support from service providers, a good marketing campaign and a pile of cash large enough to keep the campaign going long after the phone goes on sale.
You could say that the cracked back of my HTC U11 is completely my fault and I will agree that I share some blame in it. If I had kept in it a case all the time or if I would have been a bit more careful, the phone would have never chipped in the first place.
HTC and OnePlus are not to broadcast promotional material in the UK anymore suggesting the U11 can be used in "standard swimming pools" and causing "unduly distress" respectively.
It no longer comes as a big surprise that HTC isn't capable of making money, losing more than ever over a three-month period that's generally very lucrative for tech manufacturers.
The HTC U11 is old, unpopular, with thick screen bezels, a single rear-facing camera and... an irresistible price point on eBay right now.
In an industry full of polished, smooth, slippery glass, one smartphone may soon stand out with brushed, textured, matte glass. That smartphone could come from HTC.
Before it can return to quarterly profitability with Google's help, HTC's monthly income scores are still shrinking, and new Vive headsets will probably not help that much.
The HTC U11+ is the latest in a long line of attractive smartphones from a number of Android OEMs launching in India before or instead of seeing daylight stateside.
Believe it or not, the unreleased HTC U12 flagship phone, codenamed Imagine, may have been shown off in public in Taiwan last week.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and with a courtesy discount of $100, the U11 in Solar Red would be a nice gift, at least in vanity.
The follow-on to the U11 will more likely appear in March or April. The U Ultra and U11 of 2017 came out in January and May, respectively.
Unlocked units got to Android 8.0 first, but it took a couple more months before the carriers said 'yes' to updating the HTC U11.
Customers who got the device unlocked or with EE in the isles will see the roll-out of Android 8.0 very soon, this after weeks of undefined delays.
As expected, the dual camera HTC U11 EYEs borrows the screen size, aspect ratio and thin bezels from the U11+, downgrading the resolution and processing power.
Rendered in red, black and silver, the mid-range HTC U11 EYEs is coming on January 15 with a mysterious dual front camera setup in tow, as well as a 6-inch FHD+ screen.
Even after the rest of the world has gotten Android 8.0 in the previous year, Europe has not seen their HTC U11 tick upwards yet.
