HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

With the HTC 10 reportedly not doing so well in the market, it seems that HTC will be trying to attack the problem from a different angle. By putting out another smartphone with almost the same high-end specs under a different name and, hopefully, a lower price tag. That might seem to be the strategy it will indeed be employing if the HTC smartphone spotted at GFXBench is indeed the HTC Desire 10 Pro, which would blur the lines between HTC’s two smartphone lines. And probably confuse buyers as well.

HTC 10 to get Android 7.0 Nougat next quarter

HTC 10 to get Android 7.0 Nougat next quarter

Chronologically speaking, HTC was the first OEM to make the totally expected promise that Android Nougat would be coming to its current roster of flagships as soon as it comes out. Well, Nougat is now out, so HTC is following up on that promise. It is now saying when it plans to roll Android 7.0, which, by its estimates, will be sometimes in the last quarter of the year. At least for the HTC 10. The others will just have to wait a bit longer.

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

In the past, HTC distinguished its One flagship line from its Desire budget line not just in specs but also in design, with the latter usually sporting a generous amount of plastic. That divide, however, might soon be torn down, at least for the rumored HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle and Desire 10 Pro. While still midrange in features, these two smartphones are expected to bear a more premium design and build material resembling that of the HTC 10 itself, a speculation that is seemingly confirmed by these two press renders for the two smartphones.

HTC Nexus “Marlin” specs confirmed on AnTuTu

August is near its end, which means a possible Android 7.0 Nougat final release. Which also means a possible announcement of the new Nexus smartphones from HTC, as confirmed by the FCC.

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Google's 2016 Nexus smartphone set seems to follow the same rules as previous launches - in which Google is aiming for a top quality phone, not so much a phone that looks pretty. Google seems - in the photos we're seeing today - to be making sure this as-yet-unreleased smartphone is able to do two things: feel good to hold and function especially well. Why else would the bottom of the back of the phone be metal while the top 1/3rd of the back of the device is an unsightly reflective glass?

The expected final launch of Android 7.0 Nougat is fast approaching and, with it, the hopes of finally seeing the new 2016 Nexus smartphones in the flesh. As no solid dates have been set for either event, we will just have to make do with unofficial images of the smartphones. Luckily there are indeed such photos that give us some idea of what the HTC-made Nexus devices would look like. And suffice it to say, they might look quite intriguing.

2 new HTC Desire phones tipped to launch this quarter

We haven't seen a lot from HTC's Desire line in the last year, with the most recent being the US debut of the Desire 530, but according to a new report, the company has not one but two new devices coming before the end of the current quarter. The two phones are said to be the Desire 10 Lifestyle mid-ranger, and the more high-end Desire 10 Pro. It's not clear if HTC will unveil these at IFA 2016, but there's a strong chance they'll be available by the end of September.

HTC 10 apparently dropped by T-Mobile back in July

HTC 10 apparently dropped by T-Mobile back in July

HTC just can't seem to catch a break, at least not in the smartphone industry. And it's not for the lack of trying. The HTC 10 is arguably one of the better flagship devices this year, and yet it isn't doing wonders for HTC's coffers. And not for T-Mobile either. Apparently, the carrier has stopped offering the HTC 10 almost a month ago, which means that it only carried the smartphone a little less than two months after it launched.

“Colorful” HTC Desire 530 now also on Verizon

There really is no stopping HTC from pushing its "micro splash design" to the masses. After finally making available the HTC Desire 530, both unlocked and from T-Mobile, it's Verizon's turn to offer the entry level smartphone to its customers. At a very low price, even lower if you activate a new line on Verizon, you can get this handy Android smartphone that will make people take a second look. And probably not always in a good way.
