HTC U11 128GB preorders start in the US tonight (plus deals!)

The HTC U11 has some fervent fans, but not everyone with their eye on the model has picked one up yet.

The company is also hoping to bring in some new customers by dangling a few sweet summer deals.

Remove HTC Keyboard ads: here’s how [UPDATE]

Remove HTC Keyboard ads: here’s how [UPDATE]

Yes, you read that right. As if it weren't bad enough to be faced with ads no matter what corner of the Interwebs you go, HTC has decided that you should also see them in almost all screens of your smartphone. HTC has just pushed out an update to the Touchpal keyboard that it uses by default on some of its smartphones, like last year's HTC 10, that puts very visible and obnoxious ads at the very top of the keyboard, which means you get to see them all the time.

Squeeze for Alexa, coming to the HTC U11 very soon [UPDATE: It’s out!]

Squeeze for Alexa, coming to the HTC U11 very soon [UPDATE: It’s out!]

In the future, we might no longer need to even touch our phones to control them. We can just do it by voice. That is, if Samsung's vision for Bixby ever truly takes off. In the meantime, however, we'll have to content ourselves with less powerful but more useful personal assistants like Google Assistant and Alexa. And we'll still need to have a physical way to trigger those, like, say, squeezing your phone, which is exactly what HTC wants you to do with its U11 phone, possibly starting this week.

These are the features coming to the HTC U11 soon

If HTC’s “true” 2017 flagship felt raw, that’s probably because in some ways it is. Sure, Android 7.1 is definitely mature enough, but HTC’s own additions and modifications are fresh, untested, and still undergoing development. Fortunately, it might be rapid development, as there is now word on several features that could be landing on your U11 within a few weeks at the earliest, including some issues with the smartphone’s already excellent camera. At least by DxOMark standards.

iPhone 10 years later (plus LG, Samsung, Motorola, HTC)

Ten years after the first iPhone and it's time to take a head count - how does a 2007 phone compared to today's biggest and brightest.

So very many buttons! What did LG, Samsung, Motorola, and HTC have then - and what do they have now?

HTC Vive X welcomes 33 new startups to its accelerator program

HTC Vive X welcomes 33 new startups to its accelerator program

In pushing the virtual reality market forward, it really isn't enough just to have a VR headset or a set of demo apps and games. It isn't even enough just to have a platform to build upon. You also need the builders that will utilize that platform. Last year, HTC announced its Vive X accelerator program in a bid to grab that mindshare away from competing platforms like Facebook's Oculus. Now it is announcing the second batch of 33 startups that will get a chance to learn from HTC directly about creating virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences for fun and profit.

Here are the Edge Sense features coming to the HTC U11

Here are the Edge Sense features coming to the HTC U11

Although it is a highly capable smartphone in its own right, the HTC U11 would have probably been overshadowed by the likes of the Galaxy S8 or even the OnePlus 5 if not for two things. One is a camera highly praised by DxOMark. The other is its squeezable Edge Sense gestures. Not unlike Samsung's Bixby, the version of Edge Sense that new HTC U11 owners got was raw and underwhelming. Now the company is assuring customers that more are yet to come, starting with these actions.

Red HTC U11 counts down to US release

It's been an exciting couple of weeks for those in HTC's camp. The HTC U11 launched to solid reviews across the board, and though there was the slight misstep of its retail release being exclusive to Sprint, the phone is still available unlocked through HTC's website. If you were thinking of picking up one of those unlocked U11s, you may want to hold off for another day, because HTC is gearing up to launch a new red variant of the device.
