HTC Vive Flow might be coming to make up for lost time

HTC Vive Flow might be coming to make up for lost time

Although Oculus has now almost become the biggest name in consumer VR products, it isn't the only one occupying to top tiers of that still niche market. There was a time when HTC's Vive went toe to toe with Oculus, but it seems to have faded into the background in the past year or so. Just like with its smartphones, HTC isn't calling it quits and might finally be ready to take the combined might of Oculus and Facebook this week with a new standalone VR headset as well as a new "metaverse" platform.

HTC Wildfire E Ultra is a poor sign of life

HTC Wildfire E Ultra is a poor sign of life

HTC is one of the last remaining pioneers of the mobile phone market still making phones, but it doesn't mean it's doing well like Motorola or Sony (of Sony Ericsson). It hasn't launched any notable smartphone of late, and the phones that it did put out are mostly on the budget side, limited to a very small number of markets. HTC's smartphone business is still alive, though, as this sighting of a new phone proves. But if the HTC Wildfire E Ultra is any indication, it might not be that way for long.

Could HTC bring back the low-cost, high-value tablet?

There's a new HTC tablet out there in the universe today, one called HTC A100. One would hope that by the time the machine makes its way to market, it'll have a more sensible and/or unique sort of name, but for now, we've got the code. If this tablet is released to the public, it'll be the first tablet manufactured by HTC to be released to consumers since the hear 2014, when HTC made the Nexus 9 with Google.

HTC A100 mid-range tablet might come with dual cameras

HTC A100 mid-range tablet might come with dual cameras

You can probably be forgiven if you've forgotten that HTC still makes Android-powered devices. We definitely haven't heard from the company for a long while, at least as far as smartphones are concerned. HTC has mostly been focusing on making sure its Vive VR ecosystem doesn't suffer the same fate as its mobile business, which can be difficult given the Oculus grip on the VR market. It turns out the company may have been silently working on a tablet, which is already rare for HTC, with an unusual feature for a tablet, especially a mid-range one.

Prototype Google Pixel phone found in China

This week an eBay seller in China revealed what they're calling a Google Pixel Muskie Prototype (Original, Unreleased). This device appears to be the fabled mirror device that matched the HTC U11 Plus, a device that ended up being released by HTC proper.

HTC VIVE Pro 2 detailed with upgrade kit, full-kit prices

HTC just revealed the HTC VIVE Pro 2, complete with options for upgrades. This new headset will be sold in at least two packages - one with the whole "full-kit" experience, the other with the headset alone. This should allow those users who already own a VIVE Pro (the first one) to avoid paying maximum cash for the parts they already own - and likely still already have installed at home.

HTC VIVE Focus 3 beats Quest 2 on resolution for standalone VR

HTC has revealed its newest self-contained VR headset, with the VIVE Focus 3 promising a huge uptick in speed and graphics quality but still without a tether to your PC. It's not just the absence of a cable which should make the VIVE Focus 3 more comfortable to wear, either, with a 20-percent cut in weight thanks to a shift to a magnesium alloy frame.
