HTC One Max Robert Downey Jr full-length teaser appears [UPDATE]

While just a couple of bits and pieces were spilled yesterday, overnight it would appear that HTC made with the full-length video spot for their newest campaign entitled "Big Things Ahead." They also use the tag #HTChange, a single iteration of the multi-word collection of possibilities for what H.T.C. could stand for. It's also been suggested that this advertisement teases not only the HTC One Max, but the oncoming brand embodiment by Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man himself.

HTC One Max appears in early testing

HTC One Max appears in early testing

If you're not all about the smaller iteration of the HTC One in the most recent release from the company in the HTC One Mini, it would appear that HTC is also headed in the opposite direction with a bit more of a palm-filler. This device is tipped as the HTC One Max, bringing a 5.9-inch display to the market (we must assume) sooner than later, aimed directly at the likes of Samsung's own plus-sized hero in the Samsung Galaxy Note III.

HTC One mini Review

HTC One mini Review

Several months after the first market availability of the original HTC One, the HTC One mini emerges as a compact amalgamation of everything that was right about its predecessor.

Nexus 7 2013 benchmarked: Snapdragon S4 Pro in full effect

Here with the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7, Qualcomm scores a bit hit with a new version of the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (with Adreno 320 GPU), coming up to battle the original tablet's NVIDIA Tegra 3. This new device works with a much more high-definition display and a new edition of Android with version 4.3, so benchmark comparisons won't be especially telling - or fair, for that matter - but let's have a peek anyway!

Qualcomm earnings show record quarter as Snapdragon keys in on smartphone heroes

If you picked up an HTC One, a Samsung Galaxy S 4, an LG Optimus G, or a Motorola DROID RAZR HD device over the past few months, you're now working with Qualcomm hardware.

HTC Desire 500 brings candy-coated One mini alternative

Now that HTC has essentially made good on their promise to stay solid with one hero phone for the year with the HTC One (at least this long), it's time the HTC Desire 500 com about to bring on the differentiation. What you're seeing here is a set of winning bits and pieces of the HTC One, including Sense 5.0 and Beats Audio, leaving out several keys - BoomSound, for example. No worries though, this device isn't aimed at the same audience as the HTC One or One mini anyway.

Mini phones are big business, as HTC follows Samsung in releasing a mass-market version of a flagship handset, in this case the HTC One mini. Near-identical to its bigger sibling, the HTC One, the new mini variant slims the original 4.7-inch screen down to 4.3-inches, for a phone that's easier to hold and cheaper in stores.

HTC One mini hands-on

HTC isn't just relying on the One to turn its 2013 around: the company has the HTC One mini to help with that, a new 4.3-inch version of the aluminum smartphone. Slimming the flagship down - as well as some of the core specifications - the One mini is fronted by a 720p touchscreen where the One has 1080p, but still keeps the UltraPixel camera and Zoe photography system, among other things. We caught up with the new smartphone to see if the One's undoubtable charms have been distilled down to a more hand-friendly size.
