HTC tempts owner fury with ads in BlinkFeed

HTC tempts owner fury with ads in BlinkFeed

HTC will be injecting adverts into its BlinkFeed Android news reader, part of a pilot program to see if it can squeeze a little extra revenue from users. BlinkFeed, launched on the original HTC One M7, occupies a dedicated homescreen pane and delivers a combination of news headlines and social media updates, but now a select few HTC owners will begin to see promotional content in there too.

HTC One ME sports HTC’s sharpest display, and you can’t have it

This morning HTC revealed the HTC One ME, a device with a display pixel density of a whopping 564.85 PPI. With 1440 x 2560 pixels (otherwise known as "2K"), across its 5.2-inch display, this machine out-sharps the HTC One M9, a device with a 5-inch display at 1080p - that's 441 PPI. This new HTC One ME works with a brand new processor as well, MediaTek's Helio X10. This is a 64-bit mobile processor with a 2.2GHz octa-core CPU. This device will be appearing in China first in three color variations.

HTC One M9’s camera falls short in DxOMark

HTC One M9’s camera falls short in DxOMark

As each generation of smartphones emerges, its cameras are becoming more like professional-grade equipment, or so we hope. The tech world turns to rankings from DxOMark to analyze mobile device cameras as well as professional cameras and lenses. The latest review of the HTC One M9's camera is in, and it's not pretty. This model is HTC's newest flagship, and it (or at least its camera) doesn't seem to perform as well as the competition.

HTC J Butterfly: HTC’s most powerful phone you can’t have

HTC reveals the HTC J Butterfly, a large-screened smartphone destined for carriers inside Japan. This smartphone works with many of the same specifications at the HTC One M9, but here works with a 5.2-inch WQHD display (that's 1440 x 2560), also known as 2K. This device also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood alongside 3GB of RAM, more than enough to get you through your biggest and best apps and games. In Japan, of course. Not the United States as such.

HTC INK aims to deliver the One with tattoo stylings

The HTC One M9 will soon be appearing in a bespoke collection called HTC INK. This means that HTC One M9 models will be released in limited editions, each with their own design engraving from a set of highly talented artists. The first in this collection works with supermodel Jourdan Dunn and tattoo artist Cally Jo Pothecary, busting out a design that's as strange as it is lovely. For now we've just got the design and an idea of what it'll look like on the device.

In just under a week, HTC will be holding an event in Beijing called "More than One."

Also unlike the HTC One M9, this device has a dual-lens camera, just like the HTC One M8. This smartphone will likely launch in Asia first, followed by a (smaller) launch internationally.

HTC One E9+ phablet quietly revealed in China

After the number of accidental leaks spoiled HTC's announcement of the One M9, the company's latest flagship smartphone, you would think they would have learned to be a bit more careful or put a bit more effort into making a splash. Either HTC has yet to learn that lesson or we're looking at another unintentional reveal, but their new One E9+ phablet has just turned up on the company's Chinese website. While the device appears to be much the same as what was discovered earlier this month, albeit with a few small differences.

HTC ‘One M9pt’ leaked ahead of April launch

HTC ‘One M9pt’ leaked ahead of April launch

With the HTC One M9 having just come out, reviews are largely ho-hum. The barely updated design has a camera most find to be a mis-hit for HTC, rendering us mostly non-plussed about the device thusfar. That’s the version we see stateside, though. What about the rest of the world?! It seems China, at least, is about to see the One M9, but in a different form factor, with interesting new features. While we don’t have many details on the device, it’s already crave-able.

HTC not upgrading One M7 to Android 5.1, and owners are mad

HTC not upgrading One M7 to Android 5.1, and owners are mad

Today, HTC confirmed what many One M7 owners had been dreading. At two years old, the One M7 won’t see the Android 5.1 update, which is being built for their One M8 and One M9 smartphones. The reason for this shunning is likely HTC’s Sense Android overlay. HTC says the One M7 with Sense won’t see the Android 5.1 update, but the Google Play Edition of the same handset will. This split decision has not left many users happy, either.
