Flashback to late 2009, early 2010. During that time, this whole Android thing was starting to really take off. Seemingly out of nowhere, Google introduced the HTC-made Nexus One. It was pure Android, featuring no third-party skin or anything of that nature. It was clean. The device even had an illuminated trackball. (more…)
With all of the Prime Day madness going on, it only makes sense for other companies to get in on the action. Beginning today through the end of the month, potential buyers can nab a HTC 10 for $100 off, bringing the price down from $699 to $599.
On top of the new phone you will receive, HTC appears to be throwing in $100 of credit towards HTC accessories. The credit is not limited to buyers from htc.com, though. According to HTC, if you can provide proof-of-purchase from any other retailer or channel, you can receive it. This credit can be spent of cases, extra chargers, or anything else they have listed on the HTC site as a phone accessory. Do note, this does exclude Vive accessories. (more…)
If you believe the interwebs, we should see two Nexus phones once again this year, only this time only one manufacturer will make them. That manufacturer is thought to be HTC. Last week, purported specs for the smaller of the two HTC Nexus phones surfaced, and now this week, we are getting specs for the other, larger model. For those keeping track of the dirty details, the smaller is running under codename “Sailfish,” while the larger, possibly more premium phone is the “Marlin.”
Let’s talk about HTC Nexus “Marlin.” (more…)
HTC took to Twitter shortly after Google’s unveiling of the Nougat name for Android N, confirming that three of its devices will eventually receive the update to Nougat. The three devices are the HTC 10, One M9, and One A9.
If you have another device from HTC, stay hopeful that your phone might also receive the update, as HTC mentions more devices may be announced to receive the update once Google makes Android N available to OEMs. At this time, HTC can only confirm the aforementioned devices, though. (more…)
Back in April, we saw the first batch of reports surface with possible details of the upcoming Nexus phone or phones from Google. The initial rumors focused on codenames of Marlin and Sailfish as those representing two HTC phones that would take over Google’s Nexus program this year, but few other details accompanied those names. Today, thanks to a report out of Android Police, we may have an early spec list for the supposed smaller of the two phones, the Sailfish. (more…)
It’s official, Peter Chou no longer has an active role at HTC. The former CEO, who moved to a backend position as the company’s head of “future development,” then was apparently holding a role as “chairman of Digital Domain,” will now offer his consultation to the company in times of need, but beyond that, he’s retired.

HTC is hosting a Father’s Day sale, offering money off on select products, as well as a free goodie if you purchase a particular smartphone.
