HTC is spinning off its Vive VR business after all

HTC may have hit some good points in the tech market of late, thanks to the relatively more successful HTC 10 and especially the HTC Vive VR, but it isn't out of the woods just yet. At a shareholder's meeting, company CEO Cher Wang and head of global sales Chang Chia-lin revealed efforts to establish a wholly owned subsidiary that will specifically focus on growing HTC's budding virtual reality business to help offset the company's overall dismal performance in the market.

HTC Sense Home 8 coming to non-HTC devices, testers contacted

HTC Sense Home 8 coming to non-HTC devices, testers contacted

Gone are the days when each OEM had some wild implementation of the Android interface in an effort to differentiate themselves from the crowd. Those have now matured and mellowed down, shedding off some weight and putting some of their custom apps on Google Play Store for easier maintenance. HTC Sense, one of those custom Android skins, will even come to devices not made by HTC. At least that seems to be the deal with the e-mail sent to select testers, allowing them to experience HTC's vision of a proper Android experience, at least on the home screen.

Android HTC Nexus phone detailed in leak

Android HTC Nexus phone detailed in leak

The next Google Nexus smartphone has been leaked, somewhat, in the form of a set of specifications. These specs show an HTC-made device with modest abilities - not what we'd expect from the hero of the collection. This device would more than likely replace the Nexus 5X, the smaller of the two smartphones in Google's stores. It'd be the most basic of the devices you could purchase direct from Google.

Road to the next Nexus Android : HTC, Daydream, Tango, Valve

Road to the next Nexus Android : HTC, Daydream, Tango, Valve

Our understanding of the next generation in Google's Nexus smartphone line has become a bit more clear over the weekend. HTC's newfound experience with virtual reality may be playing a big role in Google's approach with the next several generations in Nexus smartphones. Word back in March could end up proving entirely truthful, coming in two forms, at least one per cycle, all made with Android's Daydream technology built-in. Of course Daydream requires only minimal specifications, and HTC's already got them on a device elsewhere.

OnePlus 3 Review Part II: Display VS iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7, and more

We're about to show you what the OnePlus 3's display looks like near the rest of the top smartphones on the market today. This means we're looking at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s. It means we're looking at the LG G5 and the HTC 10. It means we're comparing to the Nexus 6P and the Huawei P9, too. We're looking for brightness, color intensity, and - to a lesser extent - we're looking at screen size, too.

HTC announces Vive Business Edition

HTC announces Vive Business Edition

The virtual reality market is still in its infancy. The industry is mostly focused on the consumer side of things, with the release of two major headsets. If you're a business and you want to purchase headsets for your company's first steps into VR, you have to go through the same consumer channels to purchase them. One company is changing that, by launching their own enterprise VR solution.

End of an era: HTC stops manufacturing the Nexus 9

End of an era: HTC stops manufacturing the Nexus 9

That's it, it's finally over. There are officially no more Nexus tablets. While you can still buy a Nexus 9 or even a Nexus 10 or 7 from some retailers, once those stocks are depleted, they will no longer be replenished. HTC has confirmed it has stopped making the Nexus 9, coincidentally also wiping off the last traces of its brand from the Nexus universe. With the Nexus 9's departure, both from the Google Store and the market at large, the question now is whether there will be another Nexus tablet.

Oppo folding smartphone prototype is a modernized flip phone

Back in the '90s before the smartphone craze kicked off and the design that everyone wanted for their mobile phone was the iPhone-style candy bar device, everyone wanted a flip phone. Flip phones were long enough to resemble the normal phones that people were used to in their homes, but compact enough when folded to fit easily into a pocket or a purse. Oppo has a new prototype smartphone that has turned up with a folding design that reminds a bit of those old flip phones.

HTC calls dibs on Android N for HTC 10, One A9, One M9

It's still too early to really be looking forward to the final release of Android N. It hasn't even been named yet (and Google wants you to help it decide on that). That, of course, isn't discouraging some OEMs from committing themselves publicly to supporting the update this early in the game. That is exactly what HTC is doing, going on Twitter to proudly proclaim that Android N, when it finally rolls out, will be available for the HTC 10, the HTC One A9, and the HTC One M9.
