HTC Bolt to run on Snapdragon 810, now FCC-certified

HTC Bolt to run on Snapdragon 810, now FCC-certified

The HTC Bolt, also known as the “Acadia”, is now longer just a leak. It existence has all been but confirmed by the mighty FCC itself. Sadly, as with any FCC sighting, that’s pretty much all we can squeeze out of it. Fortunately, there are other sources, unofficial of course, that are more than happy to fill in the blanks. Unfortunately, the picture of the HTC Bolt being painted now isn’t exactly encouraging, not that the first impression was any better anyway.

HTC Bolt leak offers first look at headphone jack-less device

HTC is expected to reveal a new smartphone later this month — long rumored as the HTC Bolt — and a handful of leaked images have given us our first look at the device in the wild. Exact details on the specs remain unclear, but the Bolt should debut running Android 7.0 Nougat, and while it bears a physical resemblance to the HTC 10, released earlier this year, it will be more of a mid-range device than a new flagship model.

HTC Android Wear “Halfbeak” smartwatch poses for the camera

HTC Android Wear “Halfbeak” smartwatch poses for the camera

You may criticize HTC for a lot of things, but one thing you can’t fault it is for being stubborn and never giving up. Sometimes, that works to its favor, like the HTC Vive and, still to be proven, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Yet another example might soon be in the smartwatch category. Yes, HTC’s much delayed smartwatch is apparently closer to launch than we think. And unlike the growing number of dissidents, HTC’s “Halfbeak” smartwatch will still be running Android Wear.

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Today we're having a very brief and simple look at the various ways in which a person might purchase and utilize a Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL smartphone. There aren't a whole lot of options, at first glance - Verizon even seems to be pushing the idea that they will be the sole carrier option for the smartphone, the only place a person will be able to buy from! But they're not. And it's not. Google has made this decision very simple for people that check news and review sources like SlashGear before they buy.

Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are amazing and you shouldn’t buy them

Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are amazing and you shouldn’t buy them

I've worked with and played with both Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, and both of them are fantastic and amazing. But I wouldn't buy them myself. I've had both devices for extended periods of time, trying out some of the most fantastic games and making an effort to try new experiences to immerse myself in the future. But that's just it. Using either headset is a very solitary experience. It's not the sort of experience I'd recommend to friends. It can be fantastic, but only really for me.

The best Android phone is now Google’s Pixel

The best Android phone is now Google’s Pixel

Google made clear this week that they're ready to center their attention on one smartphone: the Pixel. Android will continue to be updated, they'll continue to have teams dedicated to working with 3rd-party manufacturers of Android devices, but here comes the big break. It's time. Google may not have made a formal declaration of their intentions to take the throne, but they're most certainly gunning for it. The Google Pixel phone is about to be the device that's all the best in Google's services and hardware, all at once.

Google Pixel details : release all about perception (and HTC)

Google Pixel details : release all about perception (and HTC)

The Google Pixel phone has arrived, in two sizes, complete with the company's new public image for their brand. The letter G, simplicity in all things, the absence of over-thinking names for apps and connecting devices to other smart devices and those devices to the web. If we're to believe Google will do what we're fairly sure they will do, this isn't going to be about a spec war. Google has long since discovered that their biggest competitor(s) don't play on that basketball court, anyway.

HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

In the past, HTC Desire devices were known for their ability to entice at a level just below that of the brand's hero smartphone line. They've always been fine phones, and they've always had price points that put them in direct contention with the best in the mid-range market around the world. Now, with the HTC Desire 10 pro, the company would - at first - appear to be doing something entirely new.

HTC teases 9/20 event (Nexus Pixel need not apply)

HTC teases 9/20 event (Nexus Pixel need not apply)

Google will likely be involved with HTC's next event, but only so far as they're installed on the phone that'll be revealed as Android. HTC's next event will be taking place on 9/20/16, and it'll be taking place at 8AM BST. That's not a time zone people in the United States should necessarily be all that familiar with - it's British Summer Time. At 8AM BST it'll be 3AM in New York City.

HTC Pixel (Sailfish), Pixel XL (Marlin) renders hit the Web

HTC Pixel (Sailfish), Pixel XL (Marlin) renders hit the Web

The iPhone 7 is already out and to some, even some iPhone fans, it turned out to be rather disappointing. Soon, however, it will be the Android faithful’s turn to be on the hot seat. In less than a month, Google is expected to reveal its two latest smartphones, the HTC-made Pixel and Pixel XL, not Nexus. And depending on your particular aesthetic tastes, they may turn out to be just as strongly debated. At least based on these renders that are now circulating over the Internet.

Leak “confirms” Google Pixel, Pixel XL comes with Android 7.1

Leak “confirms” Google Pixel, Pixel XL comes with Android 7.1

In case there were any doubt that Google’s upcoming Android smartphones due next month would be coming with Android 7.1 out of the box, this should lay those to rest. Actually, it still might not, considering it’s technically still an unverified leak. For leakster LlabTooFeR, however, it’s pretty much a done deal. And considering how the initial Android 7.0 release missed a couple of things, that’s almost a given. Now all we have to do is wait for about a month to see if Marlin and Sailfish, both from HTC, will indeed be the first of Google’s new line of Pixel smartphones.
