A sexy Moto 360-like HTC smartwatch is reportedly coming soon

The Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch won’t be the only Android Wear devices coming out this year, as more gadget makers are apparently going to release Android-powered smartwatches. Of those, HTC is now said to have an Android Wear smartwatch in the works, expected to launch later this summer. The news comes from TK Tech News, the same source that posted extensive Galaxy S5 Prime and Active hands-on videos ahead of the latter’s official launch. More →

Did HTC just cancel its plans to launch the flagship phablet we’ve been waiting for?

Bad news for anyone who’s been holding out for the M8-based HTC phablet: it looks like it’s been put on ice. @evleaks has learned that HTC has “indefinitely suspended” plans to release its HTC One (M8) Prime, which was set to be the company’s flagship phablet for 2014. More →

New leak suggests an even better version of the HTC One (M8) is coming soon

Is HTC following Samsung and getting into the gadget spam game? It certainly seems that way because the company is reportedly planning to release several variants of its HTC One (M8). Unnamed sources tell 9to5Google that HTC has two new variants of the One (M8) coming down the pipe in the near future known as the HTC One (M8) Plus and the HTC One (M8) Advance. More →

HTC One mini 2 review

Most of the excitement in the global smartphone market is found at the high end, where premium handsets packed to the gills with cutting-edge technology battle for consumers’ attention in developed markets. As we have now established, however, that’s not where smartphone sales growth is currently coming from.

Apple sells more and more iPhones each year and yet its global smartphone market share continues to sink. Why is that? Because despite how huge Apple’s iPhone sales figures are, they’re not growing anywhere near as fast as combined sales of entry-level and mid-range phones.

This is where growth is coming from and if HTC hopes to someday return to its former glory, it had better be prepared to battle in these cutthroat market segments.

At the low end, we have no idea if or when HTC plans to compete with next-generation handsets. In the mid-range though, HTC recently announced its new HTC One mini 2. More →

Is this the plastic version of the best Android phone in the world?

Is this the plastic version of the best Android phone in the world?

The HTC One (M8) Ace is supposed to be HTC’s plastic version of the HTC One (M8), one of the best Android phones available in stores right now, although the company has yet to officially unveil it. Recent reports claimed that the Ace will pack M8-grade specs in a plastic body and will retail for a more affordable price, as HTC continues looking to offer smartphone buyers a better competitor to the Galaxy S5. However, not many images showing the alleged device have been leaked so far, with @evleaks having shared a blurry image of the front side of the handset back in early April. More →

HTC One M8 Prime Specs

You’ll never guess the ‘exotic material’ that HTC may use for its new flagship phablet

You’ll never guess the ‘exotic material’ that HTC may use for its new flagship phablet

As great as the HTC One (M8) is, it looks like the best is still yet to come from HTC. The reliable @evleaks claims that HTC’s upcoming One (M8) Prime flagship phablet will be “made out of an exotic material, a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone,” which Alpha Materials, Inc. informs us is almost as light as aluminum but is also significantly stronger. So from the sound of it, it looks as though HTC’s next major release will be even more durable than its current lineup of high-end smartphones. More →

HTC One Mini 2 Release Date

Hands on: HTC unveils the all new HTC One mini 2

Hands on: HTC unveils the all new HTC One mini 2

The comeback trail is long, winding and almost entirely uphill. It is not impossible to trek — just ask Apple, which battled back from the brink of bankruptcy to become the most valuable technology company on the planet. It certainly isn’t an easy hike though, and it takes determination, smart marketing and great products. The HTC One (M8) is certainly a solid start, but it will take much more than one Android phone to put HTC back on the right path… even if it is the best Android phone in the world.

So on Thursday, HTC announced its second new hero phone of 2014: The HTC One mini 2. More →

Leaked pic shows 2014’s best Android phone in blue

Let’s say that you want to buy an HTC One (M8) but you aren’t too keen on the device’s standard silver or grey — well, it looks like you’re going to get another option. @evleaks has just posted a press render of a blue version of HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and as you can see, the device looks pretty sweet with an aqua blue tint.We have no idea when the blue version of the HTC One (M8) will release but @evleaks doesn’t typically acquire press renders unless a device’s launch is imminent, which suggests HTC will release it sooner rather than later.

HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition Review

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

Does the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition really sound that much better than the original?

The HTC One (M8) is a great phone. In fact, we recently called it the best Android phone in the world. While the design is the most obvious plus for the M8, HTC’s new and improved front-facing BoomSound speakers mark another area where HTC’s flagship phone shames rival handsets. As good as BoomSound is on the M8, however, Sprint’s special Harman Kardon edition promises sound that is somehow even better. Does it deliver? Sprint sent us one a couple of weeks ago so we could find out for ourselves. More →

But there are plenty of other fantastic phones set to debut this year and people in the market for a new handset might want to think twice before rushing into a new contract right now. More →
