HTC reportedly working on Android Auto competitor

HTC has made a home in your pocket, and maybe even on your wrist, but what about in your car? An interesting finding details how HTC may be angling to involve themselves in auto, creating an in-dash system that does much of what Android Auto does, but builds on it just a bit more. Codenamed ‘Cello’, HTC is doing for Android Auto what they did for Android so many years ago, seemingly bringing a skinned Android Auto to car manufacturers for inclusion with new cars.

HTC One M9 teardown shows why UH OH protection exists

HTC One M9 teardown shows why UH OH protection exists

Thankfully, HTC offers UH OH protection for the One M9. The stated goal is to make life easier on us by allowing a device replacement for simple drops or tumbles that do things like crack the screen. The real reason might be that the device is far too difficult to repair without some deep technical know-how. The crew at iFixit just tore down the HTC One M9, and what we see is a puzzle of glue and screws, and a device that you wouldn’t even want to try fixing yourself.

A ton of HTC One M9+ pics leak out ahead of April 8 debut

A ton of HTC One M9+ pics leak out ahead of April 8 debut

The One M9 flagship has yet to actually become available to all major sources, especially in the US, and yet HTC seems to be willing to make a gamble by having yet another One M9 so close to launch. The company's "More than One" event, scheduled next week, is expected to show case the puzzling One M9 Plus, or One M9+ or One M9pt, whichever name it decides to go with. But even before that day comes, the smartphone is again being leaked almost to death, at least as far as renders are concerned.

HTC has introduced the HTC One M8s, a new mobile offering with a 5-inch FHD display and all the fine trimmings you'd expect: a higher-end camera, high-quality audio, HTC's own software, and a design that's the same as the already available HTC One M8 (the latter of which we've fully reviewed). The maker is planning to launch the handset in three different colors -- Amber Gold, Glacial Silver, and Gunmetal Gray -- in different markets. We've all the details after the break!

HTC One M9+ render leaks out again, hints at fingerprint scanner

HTC One M9+ render leaks out again, hints at fingerprint scanner

While Samsung seems to be taking a breather just before the storm of launching its Galaxy S6 flagship worldwide, HTC seems to be still busy coming out with devices left and right, from all possible tiers. We just recently saw the appearance of the One E9+, ahead of the One E9 itself. And more than that, the "larger", though not really larger, sibling of the One M9 flagship is making a few rounds over the Internet again. And in the latest scoop, the One M9+ is said to sport a fingerprint scanner on what looks like a home button.

HTC One E9+ phablet quietly revealed in China

HTC One E9+ phablet quietly revealed in China

After the number of accidental leaks spoiled HTC's announcement of the One M9, the company's latest flagship smartphone, you would think they would have learned to be a bit more careful or put a bit more effort into making a splash. Either HTC has yet to learn that lesson or we're looking at another unintentional reveal, but their new One E9+ phablet has just turned up on the company's Chinese website. While the device appears to be much the same as what was discovered earlier this month, albeit with a few small differences.

Valve’s HTC VIVE headset going free to developers (at first)

While competing developer kits in the virtual reality headset market go for hundreds of dollars, Valve and HTC are taking a different approach. The first wave of HTC VIVE VR headsets are going to be free. For developers. And not just any developers - developers hand-picked by Valve. This headset is also being developed as a consumer virtual reality headset which will be released for a standard price (which we do not know at this time) at some point in the future - closer to the end of the year 2015.

HTC has a new lead designer (again)

HTC has a new lead designer (again)

Not even a full year has passed since Scott Croyle, the designer who brought us the One M7 and One M8, ‘transitioned’ himself out of HTC’s main design lab. Succeeding him was Jonah Becker, who was billed as a capable stand-in for Croyle. The two came to HTC six years ago when the Taiwanese firm snatched up their design studio, One & Co. With Croyle already taking his leave, HTC is now confirming Becker has also left the company. Succeeding him is in-house candidate Daniel Hundt.

S6 vs One M9 – A great year for full metal Android

S6 vs One M9 – A great year for full metal Android

Once upon a time, Android had the geek appeal and iPhone had the polish. If 2015 has any theme in mobile, it's the year when metal-bodied Android smartphones came of age. HTC has been plowing the aluminum fields for its past few generations of flagship, but it's only with the arrival of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge - and Samsung's inevitably huge marketing budget for the pair - that we can honestly say that Android has grown up in feel-appeal.
