We’re just a little over a week away from the official unveil of HTC’s next generation flagship: the One M9. The smartphone will be unveiled in Barcelona, Spain at the Mobile World Congress, but that isn’t stopping new renders of the One M9 in its final form from leaking to the Internet. German Retailer CyberPort posted press renders of the One M9 in a few different color combinations including gunmetal grey and gold/silver. Not surprisingly, the renders match up nicely with leaked photos that we’ve already seen of the One M9. For better or worse, the One M9 isn’t a drastic departure from the current generation One M8, which itself was a clear evolution of the One M7. However, the design of the... Read more...
The 2015 Mobile World Congress is set to kick off in Barcelona, Spain on March 2. However, invitations that HTC sent out today confirm that we’ll actually catch our first glimpse of its next generation flagship smartphone a day early on March 1. In true teaser fashion, HTC isn’t revealing any new details about the device and simply states that “utopia is in progress.” However, thanks to ongoing leaks, we have at least a general idea of what HTC plans to launch in early March. Although it’s possible that HTC could go with the obvious One (M9) moniker for its new flagship, ‘Hima’ has been thrown around since early December. As for the processor, the obvious choice is Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Snapdragon... Read more...
Back in early November, HTC made its intentions known that it would begin updating its flagship One (M8) smartphone to Android 5.0 Lollipop by early February; further confirmation of that rollout schedule came last week. Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of Product Management, confirmed last night via Twitter that some versions of the One (M8) are actually receiving Lollipop a little ahead of schedule, with the OTA updates already hitting Unlocked and Developer editions:HTC One (M8) Unlock and Dev Owners! We have received TA from Google on Lollipop + Sense 6. OTA will be out starting tonight. #HTCAdvantage— Mo (@moversi) January 13, 2015 The Lollipop update weighs in a 584MB, and HTC’s official...

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 firmware that's currently being beamed to users. Be warned that this is a fairly large file and... Read more...

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 that’s born from listening to years of feedback from users, and it packs just about everything...

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 company isn’t folding anytime soon, but it may be forced to rethink its approach to the market if the One (M8) can’t win over a significant number of consumers. Working against... Read more...
