HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

In the past, HTC Desire devices were known for their ability to entice at a level just below that of the brand's hero smartphone line. They've always been fine phones, and they've always had price points that put them in direct contention with the best in the mid-range market around the world. Now, with the HTC Desire 10 pro, the company would - at first - appear to be doing something entirely new.

HTC teases 9/20 event (Nexus Pixel need not apply)

Google will likely be involved with HTC's next event, but only so far as they're installed on the phone that'll be revealed as Android. HTC's next event will be taking place on 9/20/16, and it'll be taking place at 8AM BST. That's not a time zone people in the United States should necessarily be all that familiar with - it's British Summer Time. At 8AM BST it'll be 3AM in New York City.

HTC Pixel (Sailfish), Pixel XL (Marlin) renders hit the Web

HTC Pixel (Sailfish), Pixel XL (Marlin) renders hit the Web

The iPhone 7 is already out and to some, even some iPhone fans, it turned out to be rather disappointing. Soon, however, it will be the Android faithful’s turn to be on the hot seat. In less than a month, Google is expected to reveal its two latest smartphones, the HTC-made Pixel and Pixel XL, not Nexus. And depending on your particular aesthetic tastes, they may turn out to be just as strongly debated. At least based on these renders that are now circulating over the Internet.

Leak “confirms” Google Pixel, Pixel XL comes with Android 7.1

Leak “confirms” Google Pixel, Pixel XL comes with Android 7.1

In case there were any doubt that Google’s upcoming Android smartphones due next month would be coming with Android 7.1 out of the box, this should lay those to rest. Actually, it still might not, considering it’s technically still an unverified leak. For leakster LlabTooFeR, however, it’s pretty much a done deal. And considering how the initial Android 7.0 release missed a couple of things, that’s almost a given. Now all we have to do is wait for about a month to see if Marlin and Sailfish, both from HTC, will indeed be the first of Google’s new line of Pixel smartphones.

Pixel/Pixel XL Sailfish/Marlin will sport same Sony cameras

Pixel/Pixel XL Sailfish/Marlin will sport same Sony cameras

While there’s still no certainty that HTC’s “Sailfish” and “Marlin” smartphones are really going to be called “Pixel” and “Pixel XL”, respectively, one leakster does seem pretty sure about their cameras. LlabTooFeR, one of the most prolific source of leaks and info when it comes to HTC’s smartphones, has just revealed on Twitter that both smartphones will actually use the same cameras, both front and back. That includes a still unannounced Sony camera sensor that is probably a simple upgrade from last year’s line of Nexus smartphones.

HTC One A9s unleashed: a perplexing successor

HTC One A9s unleashed: a perplexing successor

HTC is finally breaking its IFA 2016 silence, but the noise it is making might not fall on receptive ears. As speculated before, the Taiwanese manufacturer has unveiled the HTC One A9s, the follow-up to one of last year’s most notorious smartphones, the One A9. While by no means a terrible smartphone, the HTC One A9 was primarily seen as one of the most blatant iPhone 6 ripoffs. The HTC One A9s is, for better or worse, carrying on that tradition. But rather oddly, it also seems to do worse than its precursor in some cases, leaving an even more mixed bag in the market.

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC is clearly avoiding the maddening rush of announcements and product reveals at IFA 2016. In fact, it is also steering clear of Apple’s event on 7th September. Instead, it will be doing things on its own and away from the others, nearer the end of September. Its latest teaser, titled “Be Edgier”, is clearly about a new smartphone. And based on what we’ve seen so far, that could pretty much be about the HTC Desire 10, both Lifestlye and Pro editions, that could offer nearly the same key features as the HTC 10 itself but at a more affordable price.

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.
