Today marked the official unveiling of the HTC One M9 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The newest HTC flagship will be released by the middle of March globally, and come in gold, gunmetal, pink, and silver. And if you were wondering, yes all of the leaks were pretty much spot on.
While the official unveiling will happen at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 1st, several images and promotional videos for the HTC One M9 have leaked online.
With most of HTC's staff working on getting Sense updated to Android Lollipop, their piecemeal approach to individual app updates now comes to their Gallery app. The new update is available for all HTC devices running KitKat, but if you have the HTC Service Pack installed, it will run on any Android device running 4.4 or above.
Rooting your phone is one thing, but to truly be in control of your device, you need to be S-Off. S-Off allows you to flash, mod, and tweak just about any aspect of your phone, including the ability to run custom recoveries and flash kernels, which are vital tools for power-users. Up until now, there have been many ways to S-Off your device, but some newer HTC models have become un-exploitable.
Thanks to HTC's new policy on updating their apps through Google Play, we can now get new features without having to wait for a full Sense OS update.
HTC's Sense 6 has been out for over a month now with the One M8, and most of you have probably played around with its better known features, like the new Camera app and Harman Kardon audio.
The HTC One M8 Prime, whose existence leaked not too long ago, now has it's first supposed press rendering, courtesy of @evleaks. Through his Twitter channel and wesbite, we get a clear look at the upcoming "super" flagship's rear panel, and thankfully, it shows a different camera module than the one shipped with the original M8.
Despite being leaked over a month ago, Sense 6 has now made its official appearance on all major US carriers. This update weighs in at about 668 MB and comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, as well as these new improvements:
HTC is gearing up for Mother's Day with a one day only, half-off promotion on their new HTC One M8. Starting May 8th at 12:01am CST, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon customers can pick up the flagship device for $99 (yes, you'll need to sign a contract). You can take advantage of the deal at your local wireless provider's store, big box retailers like Best Buy and Target, or directly through HTC. The promotion will end shortly before midnight, around 11:50pm CST, on May 8th.
The new HTC One M8 is barely two months old, and we've already got a leak on its predecessor. Dubbed as the M8 Prime, or more likely the One Max (Two?), the larger, faster device should debut sometime in the fall (September is most likely), not too far away from the M8 Mini that's set to release later this month with degraded specs.
Although the new HTC One M8 was only released about two weeks ago, owners of the Sprint variant are receiving their first software update this morning.
Just short of a week after its release, the new HTC One has been rooted thanks to Android devs beaups and jcase, the same guys that brought us S-OFF for the original HTC One (M7).
As a little late night surprise, Mo Versi, Executive Director of Product Management, took to twitter to announce a KitKat and Sense update for the Sprint variant of the HTC One Max. Mo has used tweets in the past to keep customers informed of product updates, and it's a trend we'd love to see from all OEMs. As part of HTC's renewed commitment to keeping devices updated for two full years after release, dubbed HTC Advantage, the One Max will see Android's latest version.
After all the leaks and peeks of the HTC One M8, it has finally been officially introduced to the public, available for purchase at most U.S. carriers. HTC also unveiled Sense 6 during the launch event, the newest iteration of its operating system, and thanks to their new Advantage Program, the update shouldn't be too far behind for the older One (M7).
The new HTC One M8 has only been out for a few hours, but it's apparent that some people had their hands on the device before the announcement. And well, one them decided to drop the thing in water.
After much hype and even more leaks, the HTC One M8 has finally been unveiled at the company's New York release announcement.
Well, that's one way to get a leg up on Samsung! Announced earlier today, Carphone Warehouse has stated that the new HTC One, dubbed the M8, will go on sale around 4pm on Tuesday, March 25th, "minutes" after the official announcement to unveil the product from HTC. According to the press release, the "handsets will be transported directly from the venue of the launch announcement to six Carphone Warehouse stores in London". A first for a smartphone manufacturer, the move will give HTC a coupl...
If you are using the the AT&T variant of the HTC One, you are well aware that the carrier opted not have the HTC Backup app pre-installed on the device. Luckily for us, HTC said "screw it" and put the app on Google Play, allowing anyone with an HTC One, regardless of carrier, to be able to download and use the app—if you're an AT&T customer, grab the app and let's take a quick walkthrough (again, the rest of us on other carriers should have the app already).
After a lengthy video and a series of leaks got us a good look at what we can expect from the new HTC One, codenamed M8, the guys over at GSMArena have brought it full circle.
Confirming a lot of what we already knew, now we have a physical walkthrough video on HTC's new flagship, the M8. Or, maybe the "New HTC One", but let's hope that's not the name of the final product. Before we get to the video, here's what we already know:
UPDATE: Verizon has posted their support document, with everything you need to know about this update. Last week it was Sprint's turn to push out Android 4.4 KitKat for the HTC One, and today it's Verizon Wireless who's up to bat.
As announced today, Sprint customers can manually update their HTC One devices to the latest version of Android, called KitKat.
HTC has started rolling out it's KitKat update (Android 4.4.2) for the HTC One to French carrier SFR, expanding on the original update to it's Google Play Edition devices from November. Update roll outs tend to begin in Europe, Asia, and Africa before hitting stateside, but the release means we can't be too far away from a public build. As always, US carriers take much longer than their international counterparts, but the French OTA (over-the-air) update means that, for all intents and purpos...
Stock prices be damned, HTC is ready to right the ship with it's soon-to-be-released follow up to the HTC One. The financially challenged device maker, according to inside sources, plans a March release for it's newest flagship.
Via Twitter, HTC, the Taiwanese device manufacturer, announced today that their barely 18 month old flagship phones will not see official updates for anything past Jellybean. HTC went on to elaborate, saying:
Here's the first look commercial straight from HTC on their new HTC One device, with a full metal body, BlinkFeed, Zoe, BoomSound, and more.
