HTC is billing its Desire 820 as its new flagship mid-range handset, but as one of the first smartphones to rock Qualcomm's 64-bit capable Snapdragon 615 SoC (System-on-Chip), don't be surprised if it gives some competitors' top shelf models a run for their money. This will especially be true when Android L (likely to be called Lemon Meringue Pie) arrives with its 64-bit ART runtime. Until then, the Desire 820 is still an impressive handset in the mid-range space. It has a 5.5-inch HD 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot with support for up to 128GB capacity memory... Read more...
You don't hear too many smartphone owners complaining about the premium design of their handset, and certainly the metal construction of HTC's One M8 is a highlight of the device. However, there's something to be said for plastic -- it's lighter and cheaper, which are two traits of the new polycarbonate HTC One E8 available at Sprint. The HTC One E8 is similar to its M8 sibling in almost every way, save for the plastic construction and a few little details. It sports the same 5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel front-facing... Read more...
If you’re a loyal Windows Phone user who’s been ogling the Android version of the HTC One M8, your time has come. HTC released the smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 through Verizon and AT&T is readying a model for its customers.  The HTC One M8 has a sleek metal unibody and solid performance, which snagged it an Editor’s Choice award in our recent review. Obviously, we loved the phone with Android, but we’re pleased to see it available with Windows Phone, too. The more, the merrier.

For those of you rocking HTC's One M8 Developer Edition smartphone, be on the lookout for an Android 4.4.3 KitKit upgrade containing the company's custom Sense 6 User Interface (UI). After being teased in a Twitter post midway through July, HTC more recently tweeted an update confirming that the ROM has begun rolling out over the air (OTA). A related update for standard One M8 handsets shouldn't be too far behind. And in both cases, this is probably the last KitKit update before Android L strolls into view, as HTC plucked all the security updates from Android 4.4.4 and put it into the Android 4.4.3...

Get, it, “killer”? “Shamu”? Fine, never mind moving on: A rumor has emerged that Motorola may be developing a handset called “Shamu”, a 5.9-inch smartphone that could be a new Nexus device. Android Police says it sources further indicate that the device will have a fingerprint sensor and may be released in November (or thereabouts), and of course the Shamu name fits with Google Nexus codenames’ aquatic nomenclature. HTC Volantis (Credit: Android Police) Other recent rumors point to an 8.9-inch Nexus tablet possibly being made by HTC, codenamed Volantis,... Read more...
Smartphones that are the roughly the size of Texas don't exactly dominate the handset category, but there's certainly an audience for so-called phablet devices. Hence why HTC launched the One Max last year, a bigger sized version of the One and the foil to Samsung's popular Galaxy Note family. This year HTC was supposed follow up the release of its One M8 with the One M8 Prime, but it looks like those plans have been scrapped. "If you were salty at having purchased an HTC One (M8) when news of the M8 Prime hit, prepare to feel vindicated: development on Prime has been suspended indefinitely," Twitter... Read more...
HTC’s new flagship smartphone is the HTC One M8 (review here), but it’s not the only One in the company’s refreshed lineup. There’s also an HTC One M8 mini 2, and there have been rumors of a plastic-shelled HTC One M8 Ace. The latter has apparently broken cover with a pretty press render and full specs. HTC One M8 Ace (Credit: iFanr via AndroidOS.in) AndroidOS.in grabbed the details from Chinese site Ifanr.com, and the device looks just as curvy as its metal brother and has front-facing Boomsound speakers and can handle the funky DotView case (a $50 flipcover that shows...

HTC's One (M8) has done quite well for the company. It has received rave reviews (including our own), plenty of commercial time, and it seems that the company's focus on premium design and elegance is starting to pay off in a world dominated by Samsung and Apple. Hot on the heels of the M8 comes this guy: the One mini 2. The naming scheme doesn't exactly flow off of the tongue, but it's still a pretty piece of gadgetry. It's effectively a downsized One (M8), hailed by HTC as "the most grippable Android ever." It has a 4.5" 720p HD display, Sense 6 laid atop Android 4.4 (KitKat), a 5MP front-facing... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, a rumor emerged that Google was collaborating with HTC on a new Nexus tablet with an 8-inch display. Further evidence has emerged that the two companies are working on--something--and it may very well be the aforementioned tablet. XDA Developers found some code in the Android 4.4.3 (KitKat MR2) changelist that reveals a device made by HTC with the code name “Flounder”. The aquatic naming scheme fits with previous Google hardware. The Google Nexus 7 (pictured above) could be getting a big brother There are no other identifying details available, so we’re...

There are hardly any secrets in the Android camp these days thanks to Twitter user @evleaks, who's been responsible for more leaks than a submarine with screen doors. They keep on coming, the latest being an unreleased press photo of HTC's forthcoming One mini 2 handset that will apparently be available in three base color options. The leaked photo shows the phone in gunmetal gray, silver, and gold. No specs are listed along with the photo, though you can see the One mini 2 doesn't sport a Duo Camera as found on HTC's recently released One M8 handset, so it won't have selective focus and other...

HTC has clearly been putting in considerable effort into its products' industrial design. For years, the company has churned out some of the most appealing flagship devices, running both Android as well as Windows Phone. As of late, the Taiwanese outfit has been struggling to turn a profit, and that’s despite a robust, well-received lineup of phones. In many ways, the new HTC One (known internally as the M8, signifying a followup to last year’s One M7) is a make-it-or-break-it device. The new HTC One M8 is, in many ways, a phone that pulls out all of the stops. It’s a creation... Read more...

Following a string of wins in the early days of Android, HTC these days is struggling to compete with Samsung and Apple, the two giants in the smartphone space. Quarterly losses are becoming all too familiar for HTC, which just posted another one to kick off 2014. HTC said it collected NT$33.12 billion (around $1.06 billion in U.S. currency) in revenues during the first quarter of 2014, resulting in a net loss of NT$1.88 billion (just over $62 million USD). That's not the kind of start to the year HTC was looking for, though if there's a silver lining, it's that these numbers represent sales prior... Read more...
