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.

HTC One M8 Lollipop update released in Europe

HTC One M8 Lollipop update released in Europe

This morning Euro lovers of the HTC One M8 will be seeing an update to their smartphones in the form of Google's newest candy: Lollipop. This update has been released now to the developer version of the device, the Google Play edition of the device, and to those willing to hack their device to bring that bit of software to whatever version of the HTC One M8 they happen to have. Now the official build is coming to Europe - and we must assume to the United States in the not-too-distant future.

HTC One M9 Plus leaked with DuoCamera, fingerprint sensor

HTC One M9 Plus leaked with DuoCamera, fingerprint sensor

It seems that the HTC One M9, elsewhere called the Hima, won't be the only star of the Taiwanese manufacturer's show come MWC 2015. A new set of leaks are popping up, pointing to the existence of a particular Hima_Ultra, also known as the One M9 Plus. Now, while the name might hint at a larger variant of the One M9, the "plus" there might actually refer more to "plus features" rather than size, equipping it with some extras that the One M9 might not have.

HTC One M9 pics, specs leaked anew; more power, megapixels [Update]

The incoming HTC One flagship — which we all assume is the One M9 by name — is seeing leaks spread around the web of late. Today is no different, and we’re now getting a pretty good look at what the next HTC flagship might look like in-hand. The device, which is believed to see the light of day at MWC this March, now looks to be more of an iterative update than a fresh take on the One smartphone brand.

Google Play edition program dead as HTC One M8 departs

Google Play edition program dead as HTC One M8 departs

Two weeks ago, we pondered the death of Google’s ‘Play edition’ program. At the time, Google Play edition devices had slowly been slipping away from the Play Store, with only the HTC One M8 sticking around. Now, Google has stopped selling that device as well. The Play Store no longer lists any Google Play edition devices, leaving the program itself without a single handset. For fans of the Google Play edition line, it’s sad day, and one that likely marks the end to a more vanilla Android on non-Nexus devices from the OEM themselves.

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

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.

HTC One 2015 Hima detail round-up: before the fact

HTC One 2015 Hima detail round-up: before the fact

It's that time again - time to get onboard with the next generation in HTC's hero phone lineup. This time around, the device is going by code-name HTC Hima. While no mention of the name "HTC One" has been made in the rumor mill thus far, we wouldn't be surprised if HTC stuck with what's worked for them over the past several years, moving out with an HTC One (place some new name here) sort of nomenclature. After that, it's all about the generational change-over to the newest processor, the best display, and some high-powered camera abilities.

HTC teases huge surprises for 2015

HTC teases huge surprises for 2015

2015 has just begun and CES 2015 is just a few days away, so it's the perfect time to put your thinking caps on. Or alternatively, your crystal balls. Of course, HTC is claiming it has big things in store this year, but has barely anything else to say just yet. So it's probably up to us to conjecture what the OEM has in mind. A word of caution though: the mobile market is a highly volatile and quickly changing space, and expecting too much can sometimes lead to heartbreak.

HTC Hima specs recited by benchmark

HTC Hima specs recited by benchmark

This morning we're seeing a benchmark readout which appears to confirm leaked specifications for the next HTC hero phone. This device is code-named HTC Hima, or HTC6535LVW, and it rolls with an odd combination of next-generation features and last-generation features. For example, this device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (next-fen) but uses a 1080 x 1920 pixel display (decidedly this-gen.) This device will likely be revealed in full inside the first month of 2015 for release in early Spring - or maybe even late Winter.
