French carrier outs HTC One A9 and its insane price

In less than a week, HTC is set to unveil a new smartphone. Given the business crisis that the company is undergoing, all eyes will be on whether this is the promised hero product that will save the company. Based on recent leaks, however, that may be somewhat questionable. Almost putting the nail on the coffin, French carrier Orange "accidentally" put up details of the HTC One A9 website, which might disappoint a few hopefuls, with its unoriginal design, mediocre specs, and unapologetically high price tag.

HTC’s downhill financial trend continues in Q3 2015

HTC’s downhill financial trend continues in Q3 2015

If there were any doubt whether HTC was in deep trouble, the numbers from the previous quarter would probably be proof enough. The Taiwanese company just posted its financials for the months ranging from July to September this year and things aren't looking good. To be blunt, they are looking terrible and almost hopeless. It revealed a net loss amounting to $138 million, which doesn't spark much confidence in the manufacturer's ability to turn its business around and put a curb on its consistently slumping profits.

HTC won’t commit to monthly updates, calls it unrealistic

HTC won’t commit to monthly updates, calls it unrealistic

At the height of the Stagefright scare that rocked Android's security, Google and some manufacturers made a commitment to more quickly release security updates, monthly even. For a time, it seemed that the Android fragmentation might soon be a thing of the past. Sadly, it seems that not everyone is on board with the idea. HTC USA president Jason Mackenzie explains on Twitter that the company isn't going to make such a promise for the simple reason that they think it is an unrealistic proposal in the first place.

HTC One Marshmallow update coming to M9, M8, not M7

HTC One Marshmallow update coming to M9, M8, not M7

A "preliminary" list of HTC devices is shared by an inside source with knowledge of the company's plans to update to Android Marshmallow. The list includes devices that will have updates to Android Marshmallow and HTC's Sense version 7. This includes the HTC One M9 and HTC One M8, of course, but does not include the HTC One M7. Also included are a wide variety of "M" devices, "E" devices, and Butterfly 2 and 3. This list, being preliminary, may be a bit deceiving for some devices that do not have enough base storage for Marshmallow in the first place.

HTC teasing a Sept. 6 event, could be “hero product”

LG, Motorola, Samsung, and now Sony. We've so far heard from the big names in the smartphone market what their 2015 strategy will be. Well, perhaps except for LG who might still have one card to show. That leaves HTC, whose One M9 was supposed to be its 2015 forerunner but was met with almost universal criticism, if not disinterest. Newly minted CEO Cher Wang promised last June that a new "hero product" will be coming to fix that, and it may very well be announced on September 6.
