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 →

HTC One (M8) for Windows hands-on preview: Windows Phone finally has a contender

When HTC launched the One (M8) earlier this year, we called it the best Android phone the world has ever seen. With a few substantial hardware upgrades and some smart software additions from the (M7), HTC had built one of the best smartphones on the market. Microsoft saw the praise the device was receiving from press and consumers and hatched an idea: What if the best Android phone became the best Windows Phone?

This is it, Windows Phone fans: You’re finally getting a premiere flagship smartphone this year, even if it did come out for Android months earlier. WPCentral has posted a brand-new picture of a retail display for the upcoming HTC One (M8) for Windows that we expect will officially launch on Tuesday at HTC’s press event in New York.

HTC’s first 64-bit Android phone revealed in new leak

With Android L able to support 64-bit architecture, we shouldn’t be surprised that OEMs are starting to crank out their first 64-bit Android phones. @upleaks over the weekend posted some new photos of HTC’s first 64-bit smartphone, although anyone hoping the device will be a flagship powerhouse along the lines of the HTC One (M8) is going to be very disappointed.

Apple Vs. Samsung HTC

Apple looks poised to run over Samsung and HTC this fall

Apple looks poised to run over Samsung and HTC this fall

The new comScore report on U.S. smartphone subscriber market share has one major surprise: Apple managed to increase its American market share to 42.1% in June from 41.4% in March. This is fairly astonishing considering it has been nearly a year since Apple rolled out new models but particularly since Samsung launched its brand-new Galaxy S5 in April and HTC rolled out its much ballyhooed One (M8) in March. So two leading Android vendors debuted their well-received flagship models during the spring… and Apple’s American market share still inched up another notch. More →
