HTC One M9 pics, specs leaked anew; more power, megapixels [Update]

The incoming HTC One flagship — which we all assume is the One M9 by name — is seeing leaks spread around the web of late. Today is no different, and we’re now getting a pretty good look at what the next HTC flagship might look like in-hand. The device, which is believed to see the light of day at MWC this March, now looks to be more of an iterative update than a fresh take on the One smartphone brand.

Galaxy S6 might not be waterproof, but Galaxy S6 Active will be

Rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 continue to pile up, but the latest ones seem to be sending mixed messages to both fans and onlookers. The latest word on the rumor mill is that the next Samsung flagship won't be flaunting a high waterproof rating, unlike the Galaxy S5 before it. Instead, that feature will be bequeathed on what would be the Galaxy S6 Active, which will be seeing a return to the lineup this year and adding to the number of rumored Galaxy S6 variants.

Ford Focus RS teased with squealing track outing

Ford Focus RS teased with squealing track outing

Ford's showing at Detroit certainly wasn't quiet, with a new GT, track-ready Shelby version of the Mustang, and the beefy F-150 Raptor, but the grunt isn't over with, a new teaser video for the all-new Focus RS promises. The potent little hatchback isn't expected to be officially detailed until early next month, but that hasn't stopped Ford from throwing it around a couple of text tracks to really whet our appetites. Best of all, although those in North America may have had to feign lacking interest in the previous Focus RS, for once they can get just as excited as the rest of us.

HTC One M9 leak teases same style but new camera

HTC One M9 leak teases same style but new camera

HTC is teasing big things for its Mobile World Congress event on March 1st, but the surprise may have already been spoiled with the leak of what's said to be the new HTC One M9. The freshly-exposed flagship is, if the tattle behind the prototype is true, markedly similar in design to the existing One M8 - no bad thing, given it remains one of the more handsome and well-constructed Android phones out there - but, much as with the M8's progression from M7, with a number of refinements like slimmer bezels around the screen. There's also what looks to be a notable change in the camera mounting on the back, which lends weight to rumors that the M9 will see some significant differences there.

Google said close to $1bn SpaceX investment

Google said close to $1bn SpaceX investment

Google is reportedly near to splashing a considerable amount of cash on SpaceX, Elon Musk's ambitious space exploration company, as part of a funding round that would value the company at more than $10bn. SpaceX has already begun running unmanned resupply missions to the International Space Station, and is currently testing reusable rocket technology that could potentially slash the cost of putting people, satellites, and other cargo into orbit, or even further beyond, such as a manned mission to Mars that Musk continues to promise. According to insiders, with Google's own space plans stumbling, the next best thing is a slice of SpaceX.

HTC “M9″ smartphone, smartwatch coming in March

HTC “M9″ smartphone, smartwatch coming in March

Although HTC did have a bit of a presence at CES 2015 a few weeks ago, it will be at MWC 2015 in March when it plans to make a big splash. Of course, it will have a smartphone, the expected successor to the HTC One M8, unsurprisingly codenamed the M9 for now. But it will also finally have a smartwatch coming, after months of speculation and waiting for the Taiwanese OEM to finally make its move in the wearables market.

Apple’s iPad Pro rumored to launch alongside stylus tool

With rumors continuing that Apple will release a 12.9-inch "iPad Pro" sometime before the end of 2015, the latest report speculates that the company will also debut its own stylus tool to accompany and enhance the extra-large tablet. This information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst often considered a well-regarded and reliable source, who backs up his theory by pointing to a number stylus patents previously filed by Apple, as well as his own research into the company's future plans.

HTC’s new flagship phone is coming March 1st

HTC is bringing its new flagship smartphone to Mobile World Congress 2015, with the company firing out invites for a "Utopia in Progress" event set to take place on March 1st. The event, which takes place the day before the cellularly-centric Barcelona show opens, will be HTC's first major one of the year, having kept a relatively low-profile at CES earlier in January. Hints from the invite are scant, but given it's been roughly a year since HTC showed us the One M8, a replacement for that phone seems more than likely.

Rumor: Samsung’s round smartwatch will have rotating bezel

Rumor: Samsung’s round smartwatch will have rotating bezel

Samsung has a round watch in the works, according to various reports we’ve seen circulating of late. Rather than a static round-face screen, Samsung may be working on something tricky. According to at least one source, Samsung will borrow a page from Apple’s book and use hardware to manipulate what you see on-screen. There may not be a crown, but there will be a bezel, and Samsung is reportedly working on a rotating ring that will mimic what Apple is doing with the Apple Watch.

Nintendo’s New 3DS: North America announcement tipped

Nintendo’s New 3DS: North America announcement tipped

Nintendo's uncomfortably named "New 3DS" handheld console has thus far eluded fans in North America. Those long dark days of waiting may be nearing their end, however, with a flier that recently surfaced via NeoGAF suggesting an announcement for North America will be happening in the very near future, and that the console's release will be taking place in nearly one month on the dot. It isn't an official announcement at this point, of course, but such fliers often prove accurate.
