With HTC’s brand new One M9 flagship handset recently released, I thought it would be a great idea to catch up with some members of the company’s executive team to talk through various features and functionality, as well as the design of the phone. Joining me at 3:00 p.m. EDT today is going to be Erin McGee, HTC’s VP of Marketing, and Claude Zellweger, Associate VP of Industrial Design. More →
While Samsung is widely known for its attack ads that fire shots at Apple and the iPhone, HTC often steers clear of the fray and focuses instead on being… weird. Every once in a while, however, the company veers off its standard path and throws a few jabs at rival smartphone makers. Of course, even the company’s attack ads are still weird.
Case in point: HTC’s latest promo published late last week suggests that Apple and Samsung are both diseases, and only HTC has the cure. More →
Rarer than a royal straight, a four-leaf clover, winning the lottery or even getting struck by lightning twice is an occurrence we like to call “fanpocalypse.” It’s that rare time when hardcore Apple fans and hardcore Android fans alike have brand new product launches to fawn over on the same day.
In the case of Apple fans, the Apple Watch is available to try on in stores and to preorder beginning today. And for Android fans, we have three of the biggest releases of the year all on one day. More →
HTC’s upcoming new flagship HTC One M9 smartphone is a terrific handset that will launch in the United States this coming Friday. We sang the phone plenty of praise in our in-depth HTC One M9 review, though we did complain that the device is a bit too similar to its predecessor at a time when differentiation is of the utmost importance, especially since Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 has been redesigned from the ground up.
Sales of Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are thought to have remained incredibly strong during the first calendar quarter of 2015, but that seemingly wasn’t enough to hold Samsung and HTC back from showing some serious signs of life. Both Android phone makers posted their unaudited first-quarter results early Tuesday morning, and both companies impressed investors with better-than-expected numbers. More →
There’s no question that the HTC One M9 is the best phone that HTC has ever released, but something even better appears to be right round the corner. On Thursday, several promo images of a new HTC phone leaked on to the Internet. Although we can’t confirm the identity of the device in the photos, we’re willing to bet that it’s the HTC One M9 Plus.

Many people criticized HTC’s strategy of turning the HTC One M9 into a refined version of last year’s HTC One M8, even though the phone is one of the best Android devices that’ll be available in stores this year. And HTC is not done imagining smartphones based on its 2014 hit smartphone, as the company on Thursday unveiled a brand new handset built using the same recipe. More →
The HTC One M9 is the only flagship smartphone HTC announced so far this year, in spite of reports that said a slightly bigger HTC One M9 Plus version might also be in the works. It turns out HTC does have a new 5.5-inch smartphone ready, at least for Chinese buyers interested in even bigger displays in their smartphones, the HTC One E9+, which the company quietly unveiled on Sunday.

It’s never a good sign to see a major executive shakeup at a company just after it makes a major product launch — see Windows 8 architect Steven Sinofsky’s abrupt departure from Microsoft after Windows 8 launched, for instance. This is now the case with HTC, which last week announced that CEO Peter Chou would be replaced by chairman Cher Wang less than a month after the company unveiled its flagship HTC One M9 phone. And now Engadget brings us word of another key departure: Jonah Becker, HTC’s VP of Industrial Design, who leaves the company after just a year working as its lead designer. More →
The HTC One M9 is one of the best Android phones you can buy right now, just like its predecessors. But unlike in previous years, HTC has the misfortune of fighting against completely new iPhone and Galaxy S designs while the HTC One M9 looks too much like last year’s HTC One M8.
In fact, last year’s model and this year’s M9 are so similar that not even HTC’s social networking team can tell them apart. More →
Remember when HTC America president Jason Mackenzie announced last week that the new HTC One M9 will be released on April 10th? Well, that’s not entirely true anymore — but don’t worry, the change in launch plans isn’t due to any sort of delay. Instead, the opposite is the case: HTC announced on Thursday morning that its flagship One M9 smartphone will become available for purchase on HTC’s website beginning tonight at midnight.
Surprise! More →
HTC’s One M9 is set to go head-to-head against Samsung’s Galaxy S6, but that’s not the only phone HTC is planning on challenging this spring. Nowhereelse.fr has spotted some leaked specifications that are supposedly for the HTC One M9 Plus, which will be HTC’s 2015 flagship phablet that will be its answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
