HTC’s big news out of Mobile World Congress 2015 is the HTC One M9, but the company had another surprise for the audience in Barcelona: the HTC Grip. That’s right, HTC is building it’s own wearable device. We’ve seen plenty of fitness bands over the past several years, but HTC thinks that it can target a group of athletes who aren’t getting what they need from the current selection. More →
After months of rumors and speculation, the HTC One M9 is finally here.
Then again, you might not have realized it unless you were paying very close attention. HTC says that the design of the M9 is a mashup of the best aspects of the M7 and the M8, and although that may be the case, it has resulted in a phone so familiar that you might mistake it for last year’s model.
Here’s the catch: last year’s model is still one of the best Android smartphones on the market.
I’m not sure if there’s still room in the market for more smart health and fitness trackers, but HTC thinks that one group of consumers is being woefully underserved by the current lineup.
As HTC explained to me at a recent press event, most of the current products are for people who are trying to motivate themselves to get off the couch. People who are training for marathons or have a regimented workout routine don’t need an app to tell them that they’ve run 25 miles — they need a device that will actually do something with that information.

After leaking repeatedly over the past few weeks, the HTC One M9 is finally official. HTC took the stage at MWC 2015 on Sunday to reveal the next evolution in its flagship series, and although it’s not a radical leap over last year’s model, it’s another stunning, powerful phone that is sure to hold its own in the competitive Android smartphone market.
Smartphone fans, we hope you’re ready for a wild ride. The annual Mobile World Congress trade show doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but there will be three stars of the show this year and all three will be unveiled on Sunday. Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge won’t be revealed until a bit later today — we’ll be providing live coverage from that event as well at this link — but first up is the new HTC One M9, which is about to be announced on stage here at HTC’s MWC 2015 press conference.

Best Buy is at it again — leaking details about unofficial products before they’re introduced — and this time around the electronics retailer has spilled the beans on one of the most exciting Android handset hitting stores today, a device that’s going to be unveiled during a special event later on Sunday.

The HTC One M9 is one of the two most interesting Android smartphones about to be unveiled at MWC, but it’s hardly a well-kept secret. A wide variety of leaks have already revealed everything there is to know about the handset, including specs and software features, going as far as to ignite the spirits around the direction HTC has taken with the design of its third One flagship.

Samsung and HTC are both going to launch their most important mobile devices of the year later this week, the Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9. But until then, these hot Android devices will continue to appear in a variety of leaks.
HTC’s new One model on Tuesday was spotted in allegedly official promo videos that showed the handset from various angles.
However, earlier image leaks and renders tell different stories, with some suggesting the One M9 will have a design that’s similar to its predecessor, while others showed a new phone that barely seems like an update at all. More →
It’s been a long time coming, but many of the latest flagship Android devices have finally received their respective Lollipop updates. Android 5.0 Lollipop has some issues of its own, but there’s no question that the UI is a major visual improvement over its predecessor.
But not every Android 5.0 phone looks the same. More →
HTC has started recovering from its sales slump of the last few years but the company knows that to keep gaining momentum it will need more than just smartphones.
