HTC makes huge workforce cuts amid another bad year

For quite some time now, HTC has been struggling when it comes to making money. Its quest for profitability has seen some big shake-ups, from laying off workers to even selling off a large portion of its smartphone design team to Google. Today we're learning that the layoffs aren't over just yet, as HTC is preparing to make some big cuts at its Taiwanese manufacturing division.

HTC U12+ durability test reveals hidden problems

HTC U12+ durability test reveals hidden problems

Like it or not, phones this days are almost designed not to last, which ultimately makes more money for manufacturers in the long run. Of course, users will cling to their expensive smartphones as long as they can, so durability is still an important factor. Last year’s HTC U11 was rated by JerryRigEverything as a complete and utter failure. And while this year’s HTC U12+ does address that critical flaw, it seems to have opened up a whole different can of worms instead.

HTC U12+, VIVE Focus integration bridges the mobile, VR divide

HTC U12+, VIVE Focus integration bridges the mobile, VR divide

HTC has just unveiled its 2018 flagship, the HTC U12+, proving that it's not yet done in the mobile market. It is perhaps no coincidence that it scheduled that announcement mere days before its VIVE Ecosystem Conference (VEC). Because at its VR-centric event, it announced a reimagined VIVE Ecosystem and a new System Update 2.0 for the VIVE Focus which would, among other things, let HTC U12+ owners see their smartphone notifications inside the VIVE Focus, letting them access a part of the outside world without removing the headset.

HTC U12+ on DxOMark: HTC gets a chance to woo photographers

HTC U12+ on DxOMark: HTC gets a chance to woo photographers

HTC clearly pulled out all the stops with the HTC U12+, both in features and in buzzwords. While it is a bit more modest about its camera chops compared to Samsung's "reimagined" slogan for the Galaxy S9, HTC is letting numbers speak for itself. As seems to be customary these days, new flagship smartphones immediately get a DxOMark review on the day they are announced, even before anyone else gets their hands on one. And while last year's HTC U11 was no slouch compared to its contemporaries, the HTC U12+ blows the competition out of the water, save for one.

HTC U12+ hands-on: 4 cameras, more squeeze, no notch

You have to give HTC its due: the new U12+ is more than enough evidence to prove the phone-maker isn't giving up on the high-end Android space. Even in a crowded marketplace, slick design and some clever hardware helps the new phone stand out, hopefully appealing to more than just the HTC-faithful in the process.

HTC Exodus blockchain phone: this is what it means

HTC Exodus blockchain phone: this is what it means

HTC hasn't been doing so well lately, at least not in the smartphone market. A large chunk of its mobile team have been shuffled over to Google. The company mostly remains afloat thanks to its VIVE VR platform. Still, there are some in the company that strongly believe that HTC still has something to offer that no one else can, starting with ambition and audacity. The newly revealed HTC Exodus concept phone is being called as the way of the future, just as the blockchain and cryptocurrency on which it revolves around has been called similarly. But just like blockchains and cryptocurrency, it might be a technology too far into the future and too ahead of its time.
