HTC has just announced its latest flagship, the HTC 10. This phone is seen by many as the company's last chance to get back on track. It's not off to an amazing start, though. AT&T, a long time partner of HTC, won't be carrying the HTC 10. That has to sting. It's only going to be sold directly by Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
HTC announced their new flagship this morning, the HTC 10. Full specs, along with images, promo videos, pricing information, and feature overviews were just uploaded to HTC.com along with this introductory video.
HTC is going to get up on stage tomorrow to announce the HTC 10 knowing that we've all seen it from every possible angle. It must be weird to have a phone so thoroughly leaked before announcement, but it's not over yet. There's another leak, this time an official promo video.
HTC is expected to announce the HTC 10 in just a few days, and with that will probably be a new version of HTC Sense. HTC leaker LlabTooFeR has posted some screenshots of the alleged new Sense 8.0 interface. It has an interesting look, plus there are stickers. Yay stickers!
LlabTooFeR has a long and storied history of leaking information about upcoming HTC phones, and in recent weeks that has meant posting HTC 10 details. Along the way, he's been dropping wallpapers from HTC's new flagship, and now all 20 have been posted. Interested? We've got them below.
Most phone makers have their own storage/RAM cleaner apps, and now you can add HTC to that list. The OEM's new HTC Preview program kicked off recently, and the first thing users are previewing is a phone cleaner called Boost+. It's not restricted to HTC phones, but you can only get it via the preview program (not that you should want it).
HTC has been amping up its Vive virtual reality headset for months and the launch date is finally upon us. For the not-so-low price of $799, you can grab a Vive unit to connect to your powerful computer and enjoy all those great videos and games that were developed just for the platform. But as early reviewers and adopters have said, the experience could be so good and immersive that you might forget your real world surroundings.
That's why HTC has built a Vive companion app for Android phones to keep you updated on the most important notifications and save you from completely missing that time-sensitive call from your boss or crucial text from your wife.

Though New York, London, and Taipei times are all provided for the online launch, with NYC at 8AM EST, London at 1PM GMT, and 8PM in Taipei.

CyanogenMod's maintainers are on an everlasting quest to conquer the software update war against pesky smartphone manufacturers who drop support way too soon for most of their devices. For instance, Samsung has been struggling to release Marshmallow for the two-year old Galaxy S5, but the CyanogenMod folks are ready to roll Android 6.0's software to an even older flagship: the three-year old Galaxy S4.
In this case, the CM 13 nightlies are available for the AT&T and Sprint versions of the Galaxy S4 (jflteatt and jfltespr respectively). The international S4 got it a couple of months ago, but other carriers and variants are still stuck on CM 11 and CM 12.1.
