HTC Posts Picture of Hidden Device(s) Before Tomorrow’s Event, Could be Anything (Update)

Screen Shot 2013-02-18 at 4.18.45 PM

It’s no secret that HTC is having an event tomorrow to announce what we are pretty sure will be the HTC One. They haven’t been short on teasing their new device, whatever it is, and today on the eve of the event, HTC posted this picture to their Instagram account. Whatever could it be?

Upon examining the photo closer than it probably should be, one of those cloths seems to be covering up something larger than the other ones. While it’s most likely two phones under one cloth, could HTC pull a fast one and announce a tablet or something crazy tomorrow? More than likely that isn’t the case, given HTC’s recent stance on Android tablets.

Update: Well, this is scary. Ubuntu now has a countdown on their site that is tick tocking right up to HTC’s press event. Not only is it a countdown, but they say that it’s, “tablet time.” Could that be a freakin’ HTC Ubuntu tablet under that cloth? Lord help us.

We’ll be at the event tomorrow giving you updates as they happen.

Predictions for Tomorrow’s HTC One Event in NYC?

matching htc one

The day is almost upon us – HTC will unveil their next flagship smartphone, tomorrow, February 19 at a press event in New York City. We’ll be there, with a live blog for you to follow along, of course. Unless something wild goes down, we are expecting to see the HTC One (formerly M7), a device with a 4.7″ FHD display, 2GB RAM, 13MP (or Ultrapixel) rear camera, new version of HTC Sense, Jelly Bean, and a dual-speaker front piece to offer a unique sound experience. Like last year’s One X and One S event, this is going to be big.

Before we get to tomorrow morning, though, we’d love to hear predictions or final thoughts on HTC’s next big thing. Will it go to all four major carriers or will Verizon say “no” again? Will the Ultrapixel camera tech that has been rumored, end up impressing us all? How will this front speaker setup benefit anyone?

Let us know in the comments! Then join us back here at 10:00AM Eastern for the live blog.

HTC Continues to Tease the ONE, Can We Confirm Its Design Now?

HTC ONE

Through their social media accounts, HTC has been posting up videos and pictures everyday of their upcoming HTC ONE device, previously known as the M7. For me, I enjoy these games that they play as it’s just a way to look deeper into images and see if we can take anything from them. The one they just posted on their official Twitter account, pretty much confirms the design that we will see on February 19, at least in my opinion.  (more…)

According to sources who spoke with HTC Source, the HTC One (formerly the M7) will launch in the U.S. on March 22 through AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The device will come in both 32GB and 64GB variants at $199 and $299 on-contract, respectively. It will feature a metal casing and front-facing stereo speakers, much like the design renders we have seen leaked over the past couple of weeks. We should also see two models, a black and then a silver/white.  (more…)

HTC Posts Countdown to February 19 Event On Homepage, HTC One Seems Confirmed

htc one teaser

The event that HTC has planned for February 19 is getting closer and closer, and it looks more and more clear that we are going to see the launch of HTC’s new flagship device. The front page of HTC’s website has been updated with a countdown clock that points to their event next week, but also hints towards their new device being named the HTC One.

Each time the timer gets to a :01 interval on the countdown the screen flashes and you catch a glimpse of the unannounced device in the background in a short clip. Hints of the phone’s backside, side-profile and camera can all be seen if you watch it long enough. It isn’t much, but HTC seems to be hypebeasting their upcoming flagship pretty well.  (more…)
