HTC One M9 release date leaked along with new pricing

HTC One M9 release date leaked along with new pricing

Just after HTC announced the One M9, a contest gave us a bit of info about what the device might cost. At the time, we cautioned that the listed price might simply be placeholder pricing, there to make the contest official. We may have been right, too. A listing for the One M9 has been discovered via an electronics retailers’ website, and gives a price tag of $649 for the HTC One M9. That’s a solid $50 more than what we heard last time.

MWC 2015 round-up; Samsung, HTC lead the way

Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet. HTC brought out their new smartphone for us to check out, but also slapped a fitness band on our wrist and VR headset on our face. But that wasn’t all! Here are some of our highlights from MWC 2015.

Pricing for One M9, Galaxy S6 leaked via promos

MWC brought some cool new smartphones. Just as we thought they might, both Samsung and HTC updated their flagship devices, rolling in the Galaxy S6 (and S6 edge) and One M9, respectively. We’re not ready to call either champions until we get some extended hands-on time with them, but that won’t stop the excitable from grabbing one as quickly as they can. Neither company was willing to talk pricing, but that won’t stop the Internet! A few clues have already been found, suggesting pricing is right where we thought it might be.

HTC Vive hands-on: That Valve VR wow-factor

HTC Vive hands-on: That Valve VR wow-factor

I’m going to be blunt with you, words can’t do justice to the experience of using HTC’s Vive virtual reality headset. There’s nothing quite like slipping into a virtual 3D world, as I did this week in a preview of Vive ahead of developer units shipping this spring. Cloistered in a room at the back of HTC’s Mobile World Congress stand, and with the reassuring voice of a Vive engineer whispering in my ear, I got to try out a number of demo apps and environments created for the platform by Valve and others, including the first announced title for SteamVR.

HTC One M9 vs. One M8 — should you upgrade?

HTC One M9 vs. One M8 — should you upgrade?

Now that the HTC One M9 is official, you might be wondering if it’s time to upgrade. Sporting all the latest specs, like a Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM, might make you wonder if it’s that much better than your current phone. A new 20-megapixel rear shooter and Ultrapixel front-facing camera are quite the pair, too. If oyu’ve got a One M8, you’re probably one of the many who love their phone, so rather than keep you guessing about whether an upgrade is worth it, we’ll break it down.

HTC Vive detailed: Valve’s VR headset team-up begins

There's a Valve-centric VR headset coming from HTC this year, and it goes by the name Vive. That's HTC Vive, a new take on the virtual reality universe. A headset that works with what HTC and Valve describe as Full Room Scale. This device combines the massive gaming knowledge of Valve, the user base of Steam, and the manufacturing knowhow and high-end craftsmanship of HTC. Just like HTC was early to the game with smartphones with Android, they want to be in on Virtual Reality right this minute.

HTC Grip hands-on; finally, an HTC wearable

HTC Grip hands-on; finally, an HTC wearable

As expected, HTC now has a wearable. The company has long been complimentary of wearables, and vowed long ago to have one for us at some point. With the Grip, HTC hopes to get a grip on the wearable market, and tough it has a display — the Grip is more fitness wearable than smartwatch. It also makes good on HTC’s partnership with Under Armour, and when we consider other moves Under Armour has made, could make this wearable a go-to for fitness buffs.

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

HTC One M9 hands-on: Android goes luxe

The HTC One M9 is here, and it feels mighty familiar. The company’s new flagship, unveiled here at Mobile World Congress 2015, takes the premium metal unibody of its predecessor and slots in a new chip, new camera, and tweaks what has already proved to be a popular design. And, while it might be easy to discount the One M9 at first for being an evolution rather than a revolution compared to the phones that came before it, HTC’s argument is that such an approach is exactly the route it needs to take: refinement rather than replacement for its own sake. Read on for some first impressions.

HTC teases more than just a phone for MWC event

HTC teases more than just a phone for MWC event

All this dust-up over HTC’s new One handset seems to have no effect on the company. While you’d assume their leaked handset would annoy or anger them, they really don’t seem phased at all. In fact, their global communications boss says it’s small potatoes compared to the rest of what they’re ready to roll out. What that might be — nobody knows. We’ve all got suspicions, but HTC definitely has something up their sleeve for MWC this March. Any guesses?
