HTC has something big in the works it seems. We'll wager that it's a phone, or something like a phone, but you never know. 
Whatever it turns out to be, it will be shown off on January 12th. Exactly where and when hasn't been disclosed.
Here's what HTC have revealed so far;
Hello,

HTC wanted to share the date of our next big announcement… 01.12.2017! ...More info to come soon...
What's interesting is the timing of the news especially as CES is coming soon. It wraps up in Las Vegas on Sunday, January 8th - but has been attracting less and less mobile hardware over the last few years. 
The main event for the first half of the year is Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which doesn't kick off until late February. Of course, larger mobile manufacturers are now often opting to host their own press events outside the usual show venues. Such would seem to be the case here.
HTC's current head honcho phone, the 10, isn't due for a replacement until the second quarter of 2017 at the earliest, what this means is that the new announcement might be a phone that is NOT a flagship and is a mid-range phone i which case the whole thing would be a tad pointless. But we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out and hope for the best.



A little while ago, HTC launched the Bolt. The plan was  to have it as a device that was exclusive to US carrier Sprint. 

The Bolt will come to Europe apparently, but it will be under a different name; HTC 10 Evo


The Evo boasts an IP57 dust and waterproofing rating, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with panoramic selfie mode. The handset also runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

That's not all it offers as it also features the new USB-C "adaptive earphones" 

What this does is it allows you to set up a personalised audio profile. The HTC 10 Evo sends out a lone ping and creates this profile automatically. This feature is pretty useful as you can quickly recalibrate when you move from a noisy environment to a quieter one and still enjoy your music with a different audio profile.


So what's the Evo made of? 3GB of RAM and 32 gigs of expandable storage for starters, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, fingerprint sensor, 3,200mAh battery and 16-megapixel (f/2.0) primary camera with phase detection autofocus (no UltraPixels here). All in all, a pretty powerful device, and one that looks the part too.

One of the major things the Evo has going for it is that it's visually stunning with a flat back and 5.5-inch Quad HD display.



As for buying it, well the HTC Evo will only be sold online. So no physical stores have it.

This means HTC will be relying on consumers who don't want to be tied down to contracts and want to buy the phone outright. This is uncharted territory for them, but they should be alright.

It's unknown when the Evo would be available for sale, but we do have our fingers crossed that it's soon.



Rejoice non-Nexus smartphone users! 

Google I/O, the infamous annual developer conference held and as part of the fanfare and activities was the updated info on the Android N. 

The new Android version was previewed a couple of months back by developers, so there was no need for a big announcement. The worry for most Android users will be whether your current non-Nexus smartphone is going to get the update since the version is supposed to roll out with upcoming Nexus phones. 

Well, there's good news as HTC 10, One M9, or One A9 have been confirmed to be getting an update. This come via the Taiwanese company's official Twitter account. There's some bad news though and that's that there's no timeline to speak of for the rollout of the Android N update to these three HTC phones. 

More devices may be added to the list of update receivers, but for now what's certain is that HTC's 3 popular phones will be blessed with the new Android N. So yay! Image via GSMArena




HTC had a hard time of things last year with revenues and sales dropping in 2015. It was a forgettable year for them.

It's a new year though and the truth is, the potential release of any HTC phone brings about excitement, so you can imagine the excitement at the news that their upcoming offering, the Desire 628 has been leaked.

The HTC Desire appears to be a mid-range smartphone. With the leak already out there, it's likely we hear something official soon.

The person responsible for this leak is @the_malignant on twitter who seems to have reliable info on the phone.

The images provided by @the_malignant show the handset in two different color options: A white device with a blue/purple trim and a black one with red trimmings. 

The specs of the phone were also leaked.
The info provided speculates that the HTC Desire 628 will have a 1.3GHz MediaTek MTK6753 octa-core processor and a 5-inch display with resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD). 

Also 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card) are thrown in there.

It's also been tipped to contain  a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and BSI sensor, a 5-megapixel shooter at the front, and a 2200 mAh battery. 

It's a dual SIM handset (Isn't every android phone these days) and has a plastic unibody build. 

As for the price of the phone, there's been no news yet, but it's only a matter of time before something pops on that end and we'll keep you posted on the development.

You can in the meantime keep yourselves busy with the images of the leaks below

HTC seems to be gearing up for a breathtaking smartphone that could take the Samsung S5 off market but we'd like to check out some of the specifications and features it promises to bring. Although the Samsung S5 is around the corner and making huge success and the M8 will start selling in few weeks globally.

Samsung for sure are always ready for the competition since their biggest challenge is to beat Apple devices but unfortunately for the mobile phone manufacturer there are more brands to beat than just Apple products. We'll be checking out the difference between this Samsung S5 and the new HTC One M8, though they both have significant differences.



On a first look, the HTC One M8 will just take you away coz it's stylish with the aluminum unibody, a Sense 6 UI while the Samsung S5 it's all about the features, water-resistant chassis, 16MP mega pixel camera, built-in fingerprint scanner and a heart rate sensor. Like we already know, the description about S5 is something we can say is similar to the iPhone 5 and 5s right?

HTC One M8 and HTC One - Similar Design

Moving further.... Check out the specifications below and i'm just going to make BOLD what an average user will easily notice when checking out a phone specs.

There we have it... In a recap, the HTC One M8 seem heavier than the S5, the S5 is .1 inch wider, both running the latest Android 4.4. Talking about memory allocation/RAM they are the same, Battery life the S5 will do more than the M8 however speculations have it that the Samsung S5 battery drains fast when on camera while it's removable the HTC One M8 is none removable like the iPhone. Lastly the Camera, now you might be thinking why did i skip it for battery, i just wanted to clear things out before you start going for the S5 because of the bogus 16MP camera pixel.


The 4MP Camera Ultrapixel is a new technology exclusive to HTC, technically speaking it's a New age feature that i think is better than Samsung S5. Check below pictures of places snapped using both devices.








Now compare the pictures above, it feels like the S5 bleaches the pictures and it adds more color than normal. I can relate the fact that the S5 brightens and uses the lighting and stuffs but can't it be an optional feature. I'm just curios.


Anyways if you don't understand how the HTC Ultrapixel works and meaning here's your chance.

Meaning of HTC Ultrapixel ?

The new HTC One will be the first to feature the HTC UltraPixel Camera - an advanced imaging technology that offers a great leap in the quality of point-and-shoot photos and video. Smartphones have rapidly become the primary camera for millions of people, and taking pictures has become an indispensable part of daily life. HTC is committed to offering the highest quality camera available, so even everyday pictures are gratifying and memorable.

With our new camera, you’ll be able to quickly shoot vivid, true-to-life images with a wide range of colors, even in low light conditions. We accomplish this not by increasing the number of megapixels in the camera, but by engineering a more advanced CMOS Sensor, ISP, and optical lens system that captures significantly more light than most 8 or 13 megapixel cameras.
