HTC Desire 526 and Desire 626 Announced For Verizon, Coming Tomorrow And 'In The Coming Weeks' Respectively

HTC's Desire brand has hung on through two revisions of the "company-wide" One moniker, oddly adopting features and style queues from the flagship series while aiming for a lower price point. So it is with the latest Desire phones to come to Verizon, the 526 and 626. Verizon announced the pair earlier today, with the cheaper Desire 526 going on sale tomorrow (August 13th) and the Desire 626 available "in the coming weeks."

The 526 is the cheaper of the two phones, with a 4.7-inch 960x540 screen and an 8-megapixel camera (according to Verizon's short press release). HTC's website has rather more information, revealing a Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage plus a MicroSD card slot, a rather diminutive 2000mAh battery, and a 2MP front-facing camera.

European HTC One M9 Getting First Android 5.1 Update, Promise Of Shorter Charge Times

While European owners of HTC's One M9 got its most critical update bringing camera and battery life fixes in June, they've been waiting for the jump from Android 5.0 to 5.1 as unlocked and American carrier versions (except Verizon) have received it. The wait appears to be over, though, as users have begun reporting a fairly large OTA that promises a version increase to 5.1 along with quicker charging times.

The ROM version for the update is 2.10.401.1 and the download is a mighty 831.88 MB, so make sure to be connected to Wi-Fi before pulling the trigger. There are certainly a variety of other refinements beyond those mentioned in the OTA notification, not to mention important security fixes.

[Hugely Tacky Conduct] HTC Pushed A Fantastic Four Notification Ad To The One M8 And M9

HTC has been experimenting with alternative revenue streams lately, and it was already walking a fine line. Ads started showing up in BlinkFeed a few weeks ago, but users could disable them. Now a large number of One M8 and M9 users have been served an ad in the notification shade. It was promoting a Fantastic Four movie theme, and people are not happy at all.
