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.

Pixel/Pixel XL Sailfish/Marlin will sport same Sony cameras

Pixel/Pixel XL Sailfish/Marlin will sport same Sony cameras

While there’s still no certainty that HTC’s “Sailfish” and “Marlin” smartphones are really going to be called “Pixel” and “Pixel XL”, respectively, one leakster does seem pretty sure about their cameras. LlabTooFeR, one of the most prolific source of leaks and info when it comes to HTC’s smartphones, has just revealed on Twitter that both smartphones will actually use the same cameras, both front and back. That includes a still unannounced Sony camera sensor that is probably a simple upgrade from last year’s line of Nexus smartphones.

HTC One A9s unleashed: a perplexing successor

HTC One A9s unleashed: a perplexing successor

HTC is finally breaking its IFA 2016 silence, but the noise it is making might not fall on receptive ears. As speculated before, the Taiwanese manufacturer has unveiled the HTC One A9s, the follow-up to one of last year’s most notorious smartphones, the One A9. While by no means a terrible smartphone, the HTC One A9 was primarily seen as one of the most blatant iPhone 6 ripoffs. The HTC One A9s is, for better or worse, carrying on that tradition. But rather oddly, it also seems to do worse than its precursor in some cases, leaving an even more mixed bag in the market.

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC is clearly avoiding the maddening rush of announcements and product reveals at IFA 2016. In fact, it is also steering clear of Apple’s event on 7th September. Instead, it will be doing things on its own and away from the others, nearer the end of September. Its latest teaser, titled “Be Edgier”, is clearly about a new smartphone. And based on what we’ve seen so far, that could pretty much be about the HTC Desire 10, both Lifestlye and Pro editions, that could offer nearly the same key features as the HTC 10 itself but at a more affordable price.

HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

With the HTC 10 reportedly not doing so well in the market, it seems that HTC will be trying to attack the problem from a different angle. By putting out another smartphone with almost the same high-end specs under a different name and, hopefully, a lower price tag. That might seem to be the strategy it will indeed be employing if the HTC smartphone spotted at GFXBench is indeed the HTC Desire 10 Pro, which would blur the lines between HTC’s two smartphone lines. And probably confuse buyers as well.

HTC 10 to get Android 7.0 Nougat next quarter

Chronologically speaking, HTC was the first OEM to make the totally expected promise that Android Nougat would be coming to its current roster of flagships as soon as it comes out. Well, Nougat is now out, so HTC is following up on that promise. It is now saying when it plans to roll Android 7.0, which, by its estimates, will be sometimes in the last quarter of the year. At least for the HTC 10. The others will just have to wait a bit longer.

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

In the past, HTC distinguished its One flagship line from its Desire budget line not just in specs but also in design, with the latter usually sporting a generous amount of plastic. That divide, however, might soon be torn down, at least for the rumored HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle and Desire 10 Pro. While still midrange in features, these two smartphones are expected to bear a more premium design and build material resembling that of the HTC 10 itself, a speculation that is seemingly confirmed by these two press renders for the two smartphones.

HTC Nexus “Marlin” specs confirmed on AnTuTu

August is near its end, which means a possible Android 7.0 Nougat final release. Which also means a possible announcement of the new Nexus smartphones from HTC, as confirmed by the FCC.

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Google's 2016 Nexus smartphone set seems to follow the same rules as previous launches - in which Google is aiming for a top quality phone, not so much a phone that looks pretty. Google seems - in the photos we're seeing today - to be making sure this as-yet-unreleased smartphone is able to do two things: feel good to hold and function especially well. Why else would the bottom of the back of the phone be metal while the top 1/3rd of the back of the device is an unsightly reflective glass?

Nexus Sailfish leaked photos show an interesting design change

The expected final launch of Android 7.0 Nougat is fast approaching and, with it, the hopes of finally seeing the new 2016 Nexus smartphones in the flesh. As no solid dates have been set for either event, we will just have to make do with unofficial images of the smartphones. Luckily there are indeed such photos that give us some idea of what the HTC-made Nexus devices would look like. And suffice it to say, they might look quite intriguing.

2 new HTC Desire phones tipped to launch this quarter

We haven't seen a lot from HTC's Desire line in the last year, with the most recent being the US debut of the Desire 530, but according to a new report, the company has not one but two new devices coming before the end of the current quarter. The two phones are said to be the Desire 10 Lifestyle mid-ranger, and the more high-end Desire 10 Pro. It's not clear if HTC will unveil these at IFA 2016, but there's a strong chance they'll be available by the end of September.
