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

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.

HTC Desire 20 Pro is too familiar, save the price [UPDATE]

HTC Desire 20 Pro is too familiar, save the price [UPDATE]

The HTC Desire 20 Pro looks a whole lot like a couple of other devices we've discussed this week. One's the Samsung Galaxy A51, the other is an LG smartphone that's coming closer to the end of the month. The HTC Desire 20 Pro doesn't look particularly different in any major way from most other multi-camera, punch-hole display, back-facing fingerprint sensor-having smartphone on the market today. But the price... is surprising, to be sure.

Google ATAP’s making a sort of smart tech magic wand

Google ATAP’s making a sort of smart tech magic wand

There was a time before computers had a controller called a mouse. There was a time before personal mobile phones had touchscreens. There was a time before humans harnessed the power of electricity to enable them to control and interact with the world around them in ways that'd be otherwise impossible. Google has a concept for a device that might launch the next generation into the future as a singular controller for the operation of all things digitally connected. It's sort of like a magic wand, and it's called the House Mouse.

HTC U20 5G, Desire 20 Pro reveal the company’s 2020 play

It has finally happened. HTC has finally released new phones, including a new flagship under its "U" line. And yes, it also had a Desire 20 Pro to show but that was pretty much expected. At long last, HTC is showing it's not yet down for the count but, unfortunately, it might not be enough to keep the wolves at bay and keep the once-proud smartphone maker from becoming a footnote in history.

HTC VIVE XR Suite promises to get you ready for the Next Normal

The past five months have seen a lot of sudden changes to how we interact with each other both socially and professionally. There has been an increase in the use of the Internet and computing devices, including smartphones, for work and to keep in touch with friends and families. HTC, however, notes that all these sudden innovations still make humans slaves to flat, two-dimensional screens. It is for that reason that it is launching a couple of XR apps to take that experience to the third dimension, calling it the Next Normal of computing.

HTC Vive to support XR Viewers powered by Snapdragon phones

HTC Vive to support XR Viewers powered by Snapdragon phones

It seems that the VR and AR pendulum is swinging back to the smartphone side of things. Headsets started out as hulking boxes strapped to your head and wired to a computer but, thanks to Google, some got the idea of shoving a smartphone into that box instead and calling it a day. Realizing the limitations of phones, headset makers like HTC moved away towards standalone devices but may now be moving back to smartphone-powered gear, this time for XR glasses.
