HTC is breaking its promise that it will deliver its flagship phone the HTC One this month! Those of you who are waiting for this device would probably have to wait until April.
According to a report released on Tuesday, HTC will not be able to meet its delivery date due to shortage of parts used in the phone. The parts in question are the metal casing and camera components.
The HTC One is one of the most notable devices created by the brand. Today, HTC is giving developers a chance to play with it in whatever way they want with the roll out of the HTC One Developer Edition! However, it doesnít come cheap. If you are a developer or are simply interested in getting this variety youíd have to shell out $649!
The HTC One Developer Edition is installed with features the developers find interesting like an unlocked bootloader and unlocked SIM. It has open APIs for Bluetooth Low Energy and Infrared.
HTC aficionados around the world are probably waiting and watching out for the companyís rumored HTC M7 smartphone. So far all there is about this device are just that, rumors. But today is our lucky day because a handful of photos of the said device got leaked to the web yesterday giving us a good view of what itís like.
The photos show a sleek device with an all-black exterior; thatís from front to back. It also appears to be tall and thin but thereís no way of knowing for sure since looks can sometimes be deceiving. Notice also that there are physical buttons at the front of the device.
HTC is all set to release a new smartphone! The phone announcement made by the company last week was believed to pertain to the Droid DNA. And now we get a good look at the said phone as a leaked official photo makes its rounds in the Internet!
If this really is the Droid DNA, for sure many would want to have it because of its very attractive faÁade! But it doesnít only have a great appearance, its specs also point to a superb performance! You see. The Droid DNA is said to have a huge 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution that amounts to 440 pixels per inch! If that doesn't yield crisp and vibrant colors and images, I donít know what will.
Nokia isnít the only handset maker thatís developing Windows Phones; HTC is doing it too! In fact, the Taiwan-based company as announced two new Windows Phones that will be out in November. Welcome the Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S!
In case youíre wondering, the Windows Phone 8X is the flagship phone here. This device features a 4.3-inch LCD 2 touchscreen with HD720p resolution. It is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. But users have to be content with this storage since it doesnít have a microSD card slot.
Many high-end and fairly new Android handsets do not get the most recent operating system because of compatibility issues. Is that really true or are handset makers just too lazy to deliver the goods to their customers? How could compatibility be an unsurpassable problem when even the oldest Android phone, the HTC G1 can be upgraded to the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?
The SoCal Devs group on the XDA Developers forum was able to port Jelly Bean to the HTC G1. To prove that theyíve done it, a video of the device running on Jelly Bean was posted as well.
How would you feel about a 5-inch smartphone from HTC? If this is something that youíve been waiting for, this good news is for you! Digitimes has it that HTC is preparing an Android smartphone boasting a 5-inch display! This massive screen will have an astounding 1794 x 1080p resolution!
Is this kind of resolution on a smartphone likely? As some of you know, the highest resolution most handset displays have is 720p. But if the 1794 x 1080p is true, it will be one of the focal attractions that will make customers want it, badly!
Thereís no hiding HTCís financial troubles this time as the company closes shop in South Korea. This move to close down that particular branch is necessary in order for the company to stay afloat amidst its financial difficulties.
HTC management admits itís a hard decision to make especially considering the impact the move will make on the people who have contributed to the growth experienced by the company in the past years. As a way to assuage the impact, HTC employees are being encouraged to apply for vacant positions within the company.
HTC Desire HD ownersí wait for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is over. By the way, this is not good news. HTC made it known that the ICS update will no longer be heading to the Desire HD handset due to degraded customer experience.
Before HTC or any other company provides an update, they make sure that the outcome would result to improved user experience. HTC did that with the Desire HD and the Ice Cream Sandwich OS. But in the end, after extensive testing, they found out that the two donít go well together. Instead of better experience, the experience became not-so-good.
Finally the news that HTC EVO 3D and EVO Design 4G owners have been waiting for! Android 4.0 is heading to your handsets! It wonít be happening this July but in August. Still, thatís better than not really knowing what month or even year itís going to happen right? Anyway, just two weeks to go and itíll be August.
But I know some owners would wish the update is Jelly Bean but Ice Cream Sandwich is not bad at all. It will bring great improvements like the redesigned camera app, web browser, Face Unlock feature, and a refined and enhanced user interface. Updated Gmail app and Google Chrome are present as well for easy access to email and the web.
HTC is staying true to its promise of delivering Android Ice Cream Sandwich to a total of 17 handsets as the company revealed in May. And now, the latest handset to benefit from the Ice Cream Sandwich roll out is the Incredible S. The international GSM version can now get the update over the air.
Some HTC One X and One S owners are probably regretting their choice right now. Itís not been that long since these models were released and yet complaints are already pouring in! And take note, some countries donít have these handsets yet.
Different issues plague the HTC One X and One S. With the One X, the issue arises from the screen. When the edge of the screen is pressed near the edge, discoloration happens. In the video provided by CNET youíll clearly see how the screen is discoloured when pressed. But when the screen is left alone, it appears very normal. But still, if youíre an HTC One X owner and you know it has an issue, would you be able to rest? I think not. HTC has distanced itself from this claim and said they are not aware of it.
Waiting and still waiting. This is what a lot of handset owners, including HTC users, have been doing for the past few months. But by now, I think many of them are already restless to know when exactly they will be able to enjoy the goodness of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Itís still sad news on that part because even HTC doesnít have a definite timeline when ICS will hit their phones. In connection with this, Darren Krape of HTC said in a blog post, ďWe are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share soon."
HTC unveiled its latest flagship phone the HTC One X at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As a flagship phone we canít expect anything else but the best from the One X! And it looks like itís going to deliver both in form and performance.
When it comes to the design, the new HTC One X can compete with its lightweight body. But expect it to be a big since it comes with a huge 4.7-inch screen. The back features an 8-megapixel camera that can capture HD video. Experience sound like never before with Beats Audio!
