HTC is killing off its Android web browser on November 30th

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.

A bunch of devices receive CyanogenMod 13 updates, HTC One and Wileyfox Spark among them

CyanogenMod 13, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, was formally released back in March, but it's only just arriving for some devices, in the form of nightlies. The most notable of these devices are probably the original HTC One and the Wileyfox Spark, plus the Spark X - the Spark's bigger, more powerful brother.

The HTC One is being bumped up from CM12.1, which was based on 5.1 Lollipop, while the Spark and Spark X are receiving their first taste of the custom ROM, albeit not their first Cyanogen flavored taste though, since they run the in-house Cyanogen OS, which has recently been killed off.

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.'

[Deal Alert] HTC is offering the 10 in all models and colors for $549 ($150 off)

Although the HTC 10 is quite a nice flagship, many laughed at the Taiwanese company for pricing it at $699. However, HTC's website is now offering the 10 in any carrier model and any color for $549. That's $150 off MSRP, and it makes the 10 a much more compelling buy.

HTC One A9s is official with more iPhone similarities and worse specs than the A9

We only heard of the new HTC iPhone One A9s a couple of days ago when Evan Blass leaked the first render of the phone. Thankfully, we didn't have to go through weeks of more torturous rumors over the existence and purpose of this device, as HTC has just officially announced it at IFA.

The "successor" to the One A9 pushes its iPhone inspiration to new levels (yes, we know HTC introduced the general look first, but this is more of a blatant copy than the iPhone ever was of the One series) thanks to a top left rear camera and LED flash, removed HTC logo from the front, and smaller earpiece.

The HTC One A9s gets leaked, is even more iPhone-inspired than the A9

Last year's HTC One A9 was perhaps most famous for being an iPhone clone, but it was also a pretty solid smartphone. With this leak by the famed Evan Blass (@evleaks), it appears that the One A9's successor, the One A9s, will resemble a certain fruit-named company's flagship (no, not the BlackBerry Priv) even more. Blass's source is someone familiar with the phone.

HTC's broken 15-day update promise for the One A9 is a small symptom of a larger malady

Last year, HTC promised that the One A9 would receive Android OS updates within 15 [business] days of the first Nexus device to get that update. HTC almost immediately failed to meet its self set goal with security patches, and last I checked, my One A9 was rocking a June 1st security update in early August (it does now have the August security patch, though). Now HTC is seemingly implying the One A9 may not get Nougat until 2017, or: at least not until well after the end of August it would have under its 15-day no-longer-a-rule.

Given very few people bought the One A9, this should not surprise you in the least.

[Update: Starting Q4 for HTC 10] HTC Says Android N Will Come To The HTC 10, One A9, And One M9

Android N still isn't officially released yet, but that hasn't stopped HTC from trying to grab some attention and get its time in the limelight during I/O's news cycle. The company announced through its official Twitter account that Android N will come to three of its existing devices.
