According to a reliable source of HTC leaks on Twitter, the upcoming One M9 smartphone will be available in an exclusive developer edition variant, but only for the American markets. We’re not sure how different this will be from the previous iterations since developer edition HTC One flagships have only been available in the U.S. The upside of getting a developer edition HTC smartphone is that it comes with an unlocked bootloader, thus allowing customers to flash custom ROMs at will. It is also offered SIM free, so customers...

It’s been a lackluster past few years for stumbling mobile giant HTC at the global box-office, and if the Taiwanese are ever to spark up a comeback, the next three to six months may well be critical. For the company’s stability on the whole and future prosperity. Clearly, the One M9 could take the role of saving grace, but the M8 sequel has to hit the nail on the head in everything from release timing to build quality to sheer power. Where its predecessor excelled, the Hima has to shine brighter, and where it failed to impress, this...

The HTC One M9 is expected to break cover in March. A new report has now revealed that the company will also be launching its very first wearable during the same event. This could be a fitness tracker rather than a full blown wearable as multiple reports have told us in the past. HTC has been working with fitness brand Under Armour for the launch of a similar accessory, so this news doesn’t come as a surprise to us. But we’ll be very keen to see what HTC would have done with the device in terms of design and features. Since...

The HTC One M8 GPE was the only lasting Google Play Edition smartphone available on Google’s online store. And as of today, the smartphone has been officially taken from the Play Store, which officially (or unofficially) marks the end of the Google Play Edition lineup. This was a gradual process with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Sony Z Ultra and the LG G Pad 8.3 being removed from the Play Store and now it seems like the HTC One M8 is getting the boot as well. In cases like these, it’s awfully hard to get confirmation...

The HTC Desire lineup has created enough buzz in the mobile industry over the past couple of years. The Desire 600 series in particular have struck a chord with the audience and show no signs of slowing down. And with the MWC fast approaching, it seems like the Taiwanese manufacturer is prepping the launch of yet another smartphone in the series calling it the Desire 626. The leak comes from the reliable @Upleaks on Twitter which also sheds some light on the hardware specs of the handset. The device is reportedly packing a 5 inch 720p...

The HTC One M9 Plus has just leaked out in a new series of images, revealing what appears to be an all new design from the company. We are taking these pictures with a large chunk of salt given that one of the images shows the device to be having a physical home button. It is more than likely that this is a work of an HTC fan as we don’t see anything comprehensive to prove otherwise. Even then, it’s good to ponder over what an HTC smartphone with a physical home button would look like.   The leak from Twitter also suggests...

It seems that the Google Play Edition (GPE) devices might be done for. As of today, Google is no longer selling the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition. This was the only device available for sale, so for now this program is closed. While it could be a stock issue, the program also could be closing. With not as many manufacturers putting out GPE devices last year and the Nexus 6 costing $649 unlocked, it seems more likely that the latter is the case. However, since this device exists in some peoples’ pockets (along with a few older...

If you’re in the market for a decent flagship smartphone, you’ll be interested to look towards Best Buy where the HTC One M7 from 2013 is now selling for $199.99 off contract. The model on offer here is the retailer exclusive Blue version, so you’re getting the limited edition model for the discounted price. The cost is valid on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon models of the smartphone, so you have a lot of options to choose from. The One M7 is certainly not new at this point, but for the price that Best Buy is selling it...
