As we all know, the HTC Nexus 9 is the much awaited successor to last year’s Nexus 7 tablet. With precedence given to premium quality materials and hardware this time, this tablet has already made the rounds around the internet. And now, a new revelation made by @upleaks suggests that the tablet will break cover before the 9th of October. However, there are no specific details beyond this. The Nexus 9 is expected to feature an all aluminum unibody design with an 8.9 inch QHD display, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, an 8-megapixel camera...

Verizon’s variant of the HTC One Max smartphone is now getting Sense 6.0, much longer after the unlocked variants got the update. This UI was first introduced with the One M8 back in March and has been included in almost every HTC device that has launched since then, including a handful of midrange smartphones. So there was no hardware limitation restricting the One Max phablet from getting the update. The Android version won’t be changed however, but users will be welcomed to a complete visual overhaul nonetheless. Apart...

It looks like owners of the HTC One M8 on Verizon are in for an extended wait for the Android 4.4.3 update. HTC’s US president, Jason Mackenzie, has revealed on Twitter that the update has been pushed back to mid-September in order to give the software team time to fix a GPS issue. Oddly, a GPS issue was fixed on T-Mobile’s M8 and pushed out along with the 4.4.3 update yesterday, so we’re guessing the bug was found later on the Verizon variant. Android 4.4.3 will bring mostly security and bug fixes, along with improvements...

T-Mobile’s version of the HTC One M8 has officially started receiving the Android 4.4.3 update as of this morning. The update brings forth a bunch of changes, which includes some HTC specific updates as well. For those wary of the OpenSSL related vulnerability on Android 4.4.3, HTC has included all the fixes from Android 4.4.4 with this update, so there’s no need for a separate update like the Nexus devices received. After updating to Android 4.4.3 (build 2.22.531.5), users will get a notification for another update carrying...

In order to spice up the One M8 lineup, HTC has decided to team up with Singapore’s Phunk Studios and launch a limited edition variant of the One M8, carrying some innovative graphics on the back. As it is a limited edition offering, it won’t be available everywhere as only 64 pieces have been made. Our guess is that the device will be scattered across Asia and Europe, so we might not get to see it around us all that much. HTC did the same with the One Mini last year by teaming up with David Koma for a limited edition variant...

Most of us remember the HTC One M8, but not a lot of us have any memory of the One E8, which is a One M8 enclosed in a plastic shell and without the Duo Camera arrangement. And Sprint seems to be prepping the launch of the handset, if a new promo video is anything to go by. Although nothing has been made official yet, the promo video is pretty solid confirmation that the device is indeed headed towards Sprint. The HTC One E8 sports a 5 inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel front camera, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon...

Earlier this week, we reported on how default HTC apps and features like Zoe, BlinkFeed etc would be making their way to other Android smartphones. And the beta version of the Zoe app has just popped into the Play Store. At the moment, the app is compatible with the Nexus 5, LG G2, G2 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3 but more devices should be added to the support list soon. Creating a new Zoe is as simple as selecting a photo/video, adding a theme and music to make one peppy video to share with friends. There’s...

HTC boasts of having a premium and user rich experience with its current version of Sense UI which is seen on several HTC devices. However, these features are exclusive to its devices. But this could change soon according to a new report. It is believed that the Taiwanese manufacturer is looking to broaden its horizon as far as apps are concerned, in order to attract a wider audience. This will include apps such as Zoe, BlinkFeed, Clock, Gallery and Sense TV. It is said that HTC will launch Beta versions of these apps initially with...
