Valve opens up HTC Vive’s tracking tech for the good of VR

Valve opens up HTC Vive’s tracking tech for the good of VR

HTC and Valve are opening up the technology in Vive to third-party peripherals and accessories, hoping that a more flexible attitude to aftermarket add-ons will only improve virtual reality in the long run. The decision will see HTC, Valve, and Synapse all working with hardware manufacturers to offer software and technical support to develop accessories HTC and Valve themselves might not have thought of.

HTC Nexus phones release date and details leak

HTC Nexus phones release date and details leak

Today it's become clear that a new set of Nexus devices are well on their way from Google to the hands of the public. Word comes from Droid Life where they've gotten word that October 4th could be "the launch date" of these new devices. HTC will very likely make both of these machines, and they'll almost certainly be coming with the next version of Android running on them. That's Android 7.0 Nougat - the tastiest of treats yet sent by Google.

HTC Nexus “Marlin” render unsurprisingly looks like an HTC 10

HTC Nexus “Marlin” render unsurprisingly looks like an HTC 10

We aren't hearing much about Google's upcoming Nexus smartphone, or smartphones, which isn't that unusual given the flood of information coming in for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the iPhone 7. However, not everyone is a Sammy or Apple fan and some are more interested in the vanilla goodness of a Nexus. For those of you in that crowd, TechDroider is giving you some respite by showing off a render that it made based off all the leaks available so far. In short, this is as close as we'll get until Google officially proves otherwise.

HTC Desire 530 is here, unlocked and from T-Mobile

HTC Desire 530 is here, unlocked and from T-Mobile

It has been nearly a month since HTC revealed that it would be bringing its "colorful" Desire 530 mid-ranger to the US and now it is finally making true that promise. If you're in the market for a smartphone that doesn't cost much but still looks out of this world, then this might be your thing. Of course, it isn't exactly going to be the greatest that HTC can over, but, at least on paper, it will be a serviceable mobile companion.

HTC, HP said to be working on a Vive PC for VR

HTC, HP said to be working on a Vive PC for VR

HTC is entering into the PC market, but not in the way that you might think. According to sources, the company, famous for its smartphones and, more recently, the Vive VR headset, is partnering with HP to sell Vive-branded PCs. This move, both expected and not, is supposedly aimed to spread HTC's virtual reality business to more markets by selling a bundle that includes the headset as well as a PC that is powerful enough to drive a VR experience.

HTC Desire 530 brings its “micro splash” design to the US

HTC Desire 530 brings its “micro splash” design to the US

Even as the HTC 10 flagship tries to leave a mark in the US smartphone market, HTC is bringing yet another high-profile Android smartphone to the country. By "high-profile" we don't exactly mean "high end", because the HTC Desire 530 is anything but. We mean something more along the lines of "flamboyant", with the smartphone's odd but unique "micro splash" coating that will make you take a second look at its back, where its second supposed biggest feature, its camera, also resides.

These Google Phones and Android Nougat make me doubt my iPhone’s future

These Google Phones and Android Nougat make me doubt my iPhone’s future

Today I'm doubting this iPhone in the face of Google's potential with the next generation of Android Nougat devices. Specifically the HTC-made Nexus phones we're looking at today, leaked and everything. Both of the devices have been leaked, as it were, both with very similar details - both looking like really, really good competitors for the iPhone 7. Especially if we're speaking strictly on specifications' terms, the iPhone 7 will need to up its game significantly just to match what Google has here.

HTC swiftly promises Android Nougat for One M9, A9, HTC 10

HTC swiftly promises Android Nougat for One M9, A9, HTC 10

So Google has finally decided that Android N will be forever known as Nougat. We'll leave open the debate of whether it actually matched what the Interwebs voted for (some claim it doesn't). For now, we will focus briefly on the rush of OEMs swearing fealty to the upcoming nutty treat. What rush? It seems that manufacturers aren't that hasty in promising the heavens to their customers. HTC, of course, is having none of that and has indeed promised Android Nougat for HTC One M9, One A9, and HTC 10 smartphones. Without, of course, promising when.

HTC-made Nexus “Marlin” specs leaked: larger of the same

HTC-made Nexus “Marlin” specs leaked: larger of the same

HTC might really be having its Nexus dream comes true. Twice! If the rumors and leaks are true, the Taiwanese OEM has not one but two Nexus devices coming up. That's two devices made by the same manufacturer launching in the same generation, definitely a first for the Nexus line. But HTC won't really be competing with itself, so to speak. Because despite having two, those, codenamed "Sailfish" and "Marlin", will really be birds of the same feather, differing really only in screen size and resolution. Which could make for a hard choice for consumers.

HTC is spinning off its Vive VR business after all

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.
