More details leak on HTC’s hot new 13-megapixel camera smartphone

HTC is going to have a big media event next week but, as is often the case these days, the company is having a tough time keeping its surprises under wraps. Twitter smartphone leaker @Upleaks on Friday posted specs for HTC’s upcoming smartphone that will either be called the HTC One (M8) Eye or the HTC Desire Eye and it looks like the device will have more to offer than just a vastly improved 13-megapixel camera.

HTC manages $21 million Q3 profit, but revenue continues to slide

HTC on Friday announced unaudited financial results that showed an 8% decline in revenue in September, but the company still managed to eke a third-quarter profit as cost-cutting measures continue to boost HTC’s bottom line. After a massive 33% on-year revenue decline in July was reversed with solid 10% sales growth in August, September saw HTC swing back to a decline as revenue fell to NT$16.7 billion ($549 million USD) from NT$18.2 billion in the same quarter last year.

HTC’s total third-quarter revenue fell 11% on year to NT$41.9 billion. More →

This could be our first look at HTC’s gorgeous new phone with a hugely improved 13-megapixel camera

Whether it’s running on Android or Windows Phone software, the HTC One (M8) is one of the best smartphones currently on the market. It’s sleek, it’s powerful and it looks great, but it has one major issue: the camera just isn’t up to snuff. It might look the part, but the UltraPixel camera doesn’t stack up against most flagship devices. That’s where the One (M8 Eye) comes in. More →

Is HTC about to finally deliver the killer smartphone camera its fans deserve?

Is HTC about to finally deliver the killer smartphone camera its fans deserve?

The HTC One (M8) is one of the best smartphones we’ve reviewed this year but there was one thing about it we found particularly disappointing — namely, the quality of its camera, which can’t hold a candle to the cameras on rival flagship devices such as the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S5. However, a new report from Android Police claims that HTC is about to fix that with a new smartphone set to be unveiled next month that will feature a 13-megapixel Duo Camera. More →

Amazon could have released an awesome smartphone… but then AT&T got involved

Amazon’s Fire Phone is hands down the biggest bomb of 2014 and it turns out we have AT&T to thank for it. The Information reports that Amazon and HTC started collaborating on a budget smartphone last fall but that AT&T stepped in to kill the device by saying it wouldn’t support Amazon’s higher-end Fire Phone if it didn’t get an exclusive on the budget phone as well.

HTC may have just saved itself from making a huge mistake

Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread… and in this case, HTC may wind up looking very wise indeed. Pocket Lint’s sources say that HTC has for now scrapped its plans to release a smartwatch, likely because the company decided that the device simply wouldn’t have sold well and thus would have been a waste of company resources.

HTC Desire 820 Announced

HTC unveils the Desire 820, a mid-range phone with the world’s best ‘selfie camera’

HTC unveils the Desire 820, a mid-range phone with the world’s best ‘selfie camera’

Just because a phone is midrange, that doesn’t mean it should be devoid of at least some high-end specifications. In the case of the new HTC Desire 820 that HTC unveiled on Thursday, that high-end specification just happens to be its 8-megapixel front-facing camera, which gives it the best “selfie camera” of any other phone on the market. For comparison’s sake, consider that even Samsung’s beastly Galaxy Note 4 can only boast a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera. More →
