HTC confirms there will be no One Mini 3 [UPDATE: Not so fast!]

If you're attracted to HTC's new flagship smartphone, the One M9, but were holding out for a model featuring a slightly smaller screen, it's time to let go of that hope. Head of HTC's North Asia division, Jack Tong, has stated that they will not be continuing the One Mini line of phones*, instead maintaining focus on devices with 5-inch screens and larger. Tong made the comment at the Taiwan launch of the One M9+, adding that the smartphone market as a whole is moving away from smaller screen phones.

HTC One M9 falls short, not enough to save HTC

HTC One M9 falls short, not enough to save HTC

HTC came under hard times but, for a while, it seemed that the Taiwanese manufacturer was on the verge of recovery, especially after the HTC One M8 and its new found fascination with mobile photography. Then came the HTC One M9 and now it seems that all hell has broken loose yet again. The company's financial report for April showed rather disappointing, in fact worrying, numbers, with an almost 40 percent decline in revenue from the same month last year. And most of it is being blamed on the One M9's poor market performance.

HTC reportedly working on Android Auto competitor

HTC reportedly working on Android Auto competitor

HTC has made a home in your pocket, and maybe even on your wrist, but what about in your car? An interesting finding details how HTC may be angling to involve themselves in auto, creating an in-dash system that does much of what Android Auto does, but builds on it just a bit more. Codenamed ‘Cello’, HTC is doing for Android Auto what they did for Android so many years ago, seemingly bringing a skinned Android Auto to car manufacturers for inclusion with new cars.

HTC has a new lead designer (again)

HTC has a new lead designer (again)

Not even a full year has passed since Scott Croyle, the designer who brought us the One M7 and One M8, ‘transitioned’ himself out of HTC’s main design lab. Succeeding him was Jonah Becker, who was billed as a capable stand-in for Croyle. The two came to HTC six years ago when the Taiwanese firm snatched up their design studio, One & Co. With Croyle already taking his leave, HTC is now confirming Becker has also left the company. Succeeding him is in-house candidate Daniel Hundt.

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

The changing of the guard: Cher Wang is the new HTC CEO

CEO changes happen. Sometimes, the current head steps down for health or personal reasons. Sometimes, it's merely to give way to a younger generation. But on average, such high-level management shifts usually betray some problem that a company is scrambling to resolve, partly by changing the CEO. When that company is HTC and that CEO is Peter Chou, that might very well be the case. The Taiwanese OEM has just announced that, effective immediately, Ms. Cher Wang will be the company's new chief executive, bring perhaps hopes of a revived HTC.

HTC One M9 heads to the UK first, pricing identical to M8

HTC One M9 heads to the UK first, pricing identical to M8

While it's not certain whether the HTC One M9 will literally be delivered to UK carriers before the USA, pre-orders certainly have arrived first. The HTC One M9 is the next in a line of successful hero devices for the brand, coming with a design that closely mirrors last year's M8. This device works with a 5-inch Full HD 1080p display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octacore processor (SoC) with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There's also a microSD card slot for storage expansion.

HTC One M9 vs. One M8 — should you upgrade?

HTC One M9 vs. One M8 — should you upgrade?

Now that the HTC One M9 is official, you might be wondering if it’s time to upgrade. Sporting all the latest specs, like a Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM, might make you wonder if it’s that much better than your current phone. A new 20-megapixel rear shooter and Ultrapixel front-facing camera are quite the pair, too. If oyu’ve got a One M8, you’re probably one of the many who love their phone, so rather than keep you guessing about whether an upgrade is worth it, we’ll break it down.

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

The HTC One M9 is here, and it feels mighty familiar. The company’s new flagship, unveiled here at Mobile World Congress 2015, takes the premium metal unibody of its predecessor and slots in a new chip, new camera, and tweaks what has already proved to be a popular design. And, while it might be easy to discount the One M9 at first for being an evolution rather than a revolution compared to the phones that came before it, HTC’s argument is that such an approach is exactly the route it needs to take: refinement rather than replacement for its own sake. Read on for some first impressions.

HTC: We can’t meet our 90-day deadline for Android Lollipop

HTC: We can’t meet our 90-day deadline for Android Lollipop

When Android Lollipop hit AOSP, HTC was quick to announce they’d be updating their handsets within 90 days. In fact, they were the first OEM to give themselves a deadline for Lollipop, saying “We have the Android Lollipop code. We’ll be updating the HTC One (M8) & (M7) within 90 days form today.” That was November 3. As February draws near, fans have undoubtedly been wondering when HTC would update their handset. HTC now says they won’t meet their self-imposed deadline, and offer no new deadline for Lollipop.

New HTC One (M9?) shown next to HTC One M8

The HTC One “M9” (we don’t know what they’ll call it, but that’s the lineal naming successor) is being leaked and re-leaked so much we’re starting to get excited for it. A new-look One has been showed off (possibly) already, but we didn’t get a good idea of what it looked like when compared to the One M8 or M7. Now a new pic, leaked via Twitter, may show us exactly why you'd want this new device when compared to HTC’s existing flagships.

HTC One M9 leak teases same style but new camera

HTC One M9 leak teases same style but new camera

HTC is teasing big things for its Mobile World Congress event on March 1st, but the surprise may have already been spoiled with the leak of what's said to be the new HTC One M9. The freshly-exposed flagship is, if the tattle behind the prototype is true, markedly similar in design to the existing One M8 - no bad thing, given it remains one of the more handsome and well-constructed Android phones out there - but, much as with the M8's progression from M7, with a number of refinements like slimmer bezels around the screen. There's also what looks to be a notable change in the camera mounting on the back, which lends weight to rumors that the M9 will see some significant differences there.
