HTC's got a Thanksgiving treat for you folks in the US - at least the people who own an HTC 10, anyway. Nougat is arriving starting today! Excellent news.Read More
Earlier today, some disappointing news came from Steve Kondik, CyanogenMod's founder and Cyanogen Inc.'s cofounder; because of Cyanogen Inc.'s failure, "(CyanogenMod) is very much affected." For the time being, though, CyanogenMod maintainers are still churning out new builds of CM14.1 (Android 7.1 Nougat) for many devices. We've got seven new devices with CyanogenMod 14.1 nightlies this time around (well, more like five, since two pairs of the devices are almost exactly the same).Read More
The HTC 10 came out a good while ago now - at least in terms of technology - so the Taiwanese company is feeling the need to refresh its lineup in time for Christmas. Just as well, then, that the HTC Bolt came out recently, right? Well, HTC is now releasing that phone for international markets, under the name HTC 10 evo.
The evo is, for all intents and purposes, the same phone as the Bolt. The processor is a Snapdragon 810, with four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.5GHz and four Cortex-A57's clocking in at 2.0GHz. RAM comes in at 3GB with 32GB of internal storage with up to 256GB microSD cards supported.Read More
Let's be real here: we live on a beautiful planet. While some of our fascinations lie in what is beyond our rock in space, I think that we should take the time to appreciate what we're standing on. It is quite impossible that any one person can see all that this world has to offer, which is why Google Earth is so cool. Today marks the next step for exploring our homeworld by adding the virtual reality element with the appropriately named Earth VR.Read More
Usain Bolt's branding on the new HTC Bolt should be enough indication to you that Sprint is marketing this new smartphone for its speed. But as the geeks that we are, we've probably jumped to the conclusion that we're talking about the processor, except that nope. This is Sprint's fastest smartphone yet, if we're only talking about its network capabilities. The Bolt is the first device to support Sprint's LTE Plus three-channel carrier aggregation, which is already live in Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland, and Columbus.
LTE speeds aside, the Bolt is a mid to high-end smartphone. The entire device is made of glass and metal with a 5.5" Quad HD Super LCD 3 display on the front covered with curved-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 5.Read More
Remember when HTC was the top Android OEM making devices like the EVO 4G and HTC Incredible? Those days are long gone as other device makers have risen to prominence, and HTC is struggling to stay afloat. There was some hope that its deal to manufacture the Pixel for Google would turn things around, but the newly released Q3 2016 results show another big loss. It's not as big as recent ones, though.Read More
HTC might be responsible for building the new Pixel phones, but its name won't be on them. HTC is still working on its own HTC-branded devices, including the unannounced HTC Bolt. Noted leaker of things, Evan Blass has some images of this phone, and guess what it doesn't have... a headphone jack. What a time to be alive.Read More
All good things must come to an end, and the same goes for mediocre things. In the latter category is HTC's web browser app. After including it on phones for a number of years, HTC has decided to discontinue support for the browser app, known as HTC Internet. It will no longer be available after November 30th.Read More
HTC is perhaps the largest Android manufacturer that has yet to enter the smartwatch business. LG, ASUS, Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, Sony, and others have all released at least one watch. Now the long-rumored HTC watch has finally been leaked, under the codename 'Halfbeak.'Read More
Like the Nexus 6, the Nexus 9 LTE didn't receive Nougat when most other Google devices did; however, since the Nexus 9 LTE sold significantly fewer units than the Nexus 6, there wasn't much outcry. Not too long after that, Google told us that updates for both devices would be arriving "in the coming weeks." Two days ago, the Nexus 6 finally got the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, and now, the LTE-equipped Nexus 9 is also receiving it.Read More
