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.

HTC Vive Air headset surfaces for VR fitness, but don’t get too excited

HTC is getting itself some attention this morning thanks to a leak of what's apparently a new fitness-focused VR headset. The headset, which is dubbed the HTC Vive Air, surfaced today in a World Design Guide leak that actually tells us a decent amount about it. Unfortunately, it seems like this new headset is just a concept rather than an actual product, which means that we probably won't see it head to market anytime soon.

HTC Wildfire E lite shows the company isn’t quitting just yet [UPDATE]

HTC Wildfire E lite shows the company isn’t quitting just yet [UPDATE]

There has been much talk about LG's upcoming departure from the smartphone market, and while nothing is really official yet, some say that the writing has been on the wall for years (Please see the Update below). It isn't the only big name in the market whose future has been in question for a long time. Sony and HTC are also in line for that fate though it seems that HTC has found a sliver of hope in the past months. Now it is even launching yet another mostly forgettable device just to prove it's still alive and kicking.

Pixel 2 XL by HTC may have been canceled for this reason

Pixel 2 XL by HTC may have been canceled for this reason

When Google launched its first-ever "Designed by Google" Pixel phone, its unusual design, especially on the back, played in its favor. A few iterations later, however, it has become more or less accepted that the Pixel phones' are an acquired taste when it comes to appearances. They're not always the prettiest but there was a point in time when it could have been worse, as shown by an unexpected hands-on video of an aborted Pixel 2 XL variant by HTC.

HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is HTC’s attempt to start 2021 right

HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is HTC’s attempt to start 2021 right

HTC's smartphone business has already been in the red and the COVID-19 pandemic last year did it no favors. It hasn't launched a premium flagship yet, at least not one under its "U" brand, but it seems to still be pushing through with its Desire line of affordable mid-range phones. This year won't be different, at least not at the start, and HTC's first smartphone for 2021 is the Desire 21 Pro 5G which, admittedly, at least looks the part of a decent phone.

HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G may have just leaked

HTC barely made a blip on the smartphone market radar last year and it wasn't really much of a surprise. The company's smartphone business has been ailing and bleeding worse than LG for years but it still refuses to formally fold. Although he left for personal and family reasons, CEO Yves Maitre's departure after barely a year in office doesn't bode well for HTC. Despite that, it would seem that it will still try to put out some smartphones this year, starting with an odd-looking mid-ranger that was just recently leaked.

Android 11 download release for my phone: The big list

When will my phone get the update to Android 11? This is an iteration of a question we get every time Google makes a major product release, especially when it comes to a new numbered version of their mobile OS. This year, the biggest update to Android devices will be delivered to a wide variety of devices - maybe more than any previous major update to Android due to the ease with which Google's made updating devices from Android 10 to 11.

HTC CEO Yves Maitre bows out in less than a year due to personal matters

Once one of the kings of the mobile market, HTC has all but become a footnote in history even as it tries to make ends meet via its Vive VR business. Part of its plans to turn the ship around involving putting a new captain in the person of former Orange exec Yves Maitre. HTC's newly-minted CEO, however, has reportedly tendered his resignation but not due to any illness nor from how the company posted a 9th straight quarterly loss.
