Is this HTC’s Action camera?

HTC began teasing what is thought to be their upcoming GoPro competitor this morning. The device is supposed to be announced at their October 8th ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York, but an association with a twitter account @re_camera may have given the game away early. The link to @re_camera was made through a reddit thread, which said a HTC employee had sent it to them. The only tweet originating from the account, which co-incidentally has the tag line ‘Something Remarkable is Coming’ in their header image, was released around the same time that HTC launched their teaser video this[Read More...]

HTC has begun teasing their Action Cam competitor

HTC has been rumoured to be entering into the action camera market, which has so far been dominated by GoPro, for a while. Their upcoming ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York on the 8th of October is said to be the place where we’ll see this camera (as well as a so-called ‘Selfie’ phone), so now’s as good a time as any to begin teasing and that’s what HTC appears to be doing in a new video released this morning titled ‘Something Remarkable is Coming’. The video is a teaser, so nothing implicit regarding a product or specs is stated.[Read More...]

Rumour: HTC Nexus 9 could debut on 16 October

If you’re a bit jealous about Apple folk receiving their new toys today, the wait for a new Nexus 9 tablet might soon be over, according to a rumour reported on MoDaCo. Admittedly, this isn’t a rumour with a lot of salt content, so a fair bit should be taken. However, Paul O’Brien is a bit of an authority on things Android, so I’m inclined to give the rumour a bit of coverage. Here’s how it happened: Anonymous tipster: The HTC Nexus 9 will be launched on 16th October… — Paul O'Brien (@PaulOBrien) September 18, 2014 Why does this timing make[Read More...]

HTC adds Lockscreen to Google Play as latest app to separate from Sense

HTC has been slowly adding their Sense apps to Google Play over the last six months, starting with Blinkfeed just prior to the launch of the HTC One M8 back in March. Now HTC has spun off their lockscreen to Google Play launching it as an update to existing Sense 6 devices. There’s not much to see here in the way of description, HTC simply says of their app: Swipe right to BlinkFeed, swipe left to Widget Home and swipe up to previously used app. Frequently-used information such as notifications, clock and weather are also available on lock screen.

HTC to host a ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York on the 8th of October

HTC has sent invites overnight to press, inviting them to an event in New York on the 8th of October. The event has been called ‘Double Exposure’, which from the release of the HTC One M8, seems an obvious reference to their Duo-Camera setup – but what could the event be for? While a HTC Tablet is possible (probably not the HTC Nexus 9), the timing of the event suggests it’s most likely going to be something in the realm of the HTC One M8 Max. The HTC One Max, launched last year in mid-October, so timing wise, this matches[Read More...]

Rumour: HTC has dropped plans to release their own Android Wear watch

When Google announced Android Wear back in March, HTC was named as one of the OEMs who would be producing hardware for Android Wear when it was made public. They even teased a watch in a behind-the-scenes video (which they later denied was the watch), but apparently, they’ve decided to pull out of launching an Android Wear watch. According to Pocket Lint, sources familiar with the matter have advised that HTC has abandoned plans for a smartwatch, at least for the time being.
