HTC had a terrible Q1, ready for HTC 10, Vive rescue

HTC had a terrible Q1, ready for HTC 10, Vive rescue

When your revenue plummets by more than 60% in year on year figures, you should probably be panicking. HTC, however, isn't. Despite its very gloomy first quarter financial report, as expected by almost everyone, the Taiwanese company isn't curling up in a corner just yet. That's because it believes it has two aces up its sleeves: the HTC 10 smartphone and the HTC Vive virtual reality headset, both of which just barely missed the first quarter. Whether they're enough to truly save HTC from its sinking ship remains to be seen in the next three months.

Leaked Samsung Galaxy C5 photos show traces of HTC One design

Samsung gained a reputation, deservingly or not, for being "inspired" by designs and features from some of its competitors. Of course, over time it has developed its own distinctive design language that other are now also getting inspired with. One OEM, however might soon take issue again with Samsung's sources of inspiration. Leaked photos of what is allegedly the upcoming Galaxy C5, the first in the new Galaxy C series, do indeed show a dominantly metallic motif. However, it also seems to carry some parts that readily call to mind HTC's older One flagships.

HTC rumored to spin off VR business as HTC 10 tanks in China

The HTC 10 might in the end suffer the same fate as the HTC One (M7). Both smartphones have been warmly received and praised by critics and even users but ended up flopping in terms of actual sales. Of course, it's still too early to tell, but in China, the signs are quite damning. According to media, there have only been 251 pre-ordered units on two e-commerce platforms since the period started April 25. And the main reason for that is because HTC, for whatever reason, decided to offer only the gimped HTC 10 Lifestyle in China.

Fractured VR: Will exclusive titles kill VR before it takes off?

Fractured VR: Will exclusive titles kill VR before it takes off?

Exclusive titles are nothing new to the world of gaming. Man fan-favorite games are only available on one console or another. One of the biggest reasons for this is due to the fact that they're first-part titles, meaning that Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo is behind the game's development. We all accept these exclusives, because that's just the way it's always been, and each company has the right to use their first-party titles to sell their hardware. But now this issue is affecting a new area of gaming: VR.

HTC One S9 looks like the One M9, acts like a One A9

HTC decided to stir things up a bit by giving the HTC 10 a makeover. While the end result does have merits, its previous flagship design might have enchanted loyal followers for years. The good news, HTC hasn't completely killed that design off and it is flaunting it again in the newly unveiled HTC One S9. The bad news, it only shares the One M9's design. Everything else reveals a mid-range smartphone that shares more in common with the controversial HTC One A9, with a few caveats, of course.

HTC Desire 830 design, specs leak: dual front speakers

HTC Desire 830 design, specs leak: dual front speakers

HTC may have ditched the "One" branding and its advantageous dual front-facing speakers in the latest HTC 10 flagship, but that practice will live on its the OEM's mid range line. Of course, they won't be called "Ones". On the heels of the HTC 10's debut comes a leak of what is identified as the HTC Desire 830. Unambiguously a Desire in design, the mid-range smartphone is shown bearing front-facing speakers and, save for a few core components, might have specs that give it a more premium flair as well.
