On July 24, Verizon will have yet another handset under its belt. The HTC One Remix will be available on the carrier’s network for $99 when signing a new two-year contract. The handset, known as the HTC One Mini 2 everywhere else, is essentially a watered-down, smaller version of the HTC One (M8). Like many of Big Red’s other devices, the HTC One Remix can utilize the new XLTE network speeds. » Read the rest
Before we share any details, that is the actual sizing and resolution for an icon HTC put together with an application in the Play Store. It is for an app titled HTC Sense Input which is essentially the Sense keyboard as a standalone app. This is being done so that the company can easily push updates to its devices as quickly as possible without having to do an entire system software update. Compatibility is seemingly limited to HTC’s more recent line of handsets.

It appears as though we may have gotten yet another peak at HTC’s upcoming smartwatch. In the company’s own “behind the scenes” promotional video, we caught a glimpse of the device charging on an employee’s desk, giving further legitimacy to past rumors.
Verizon’s version of the HTC One Mini 2, dubbed the HTC One Remix, will be finally launching this Thursday, July 24.
This information comes from @evleaks, who has become pretty trustworthy regarding the accuracy of his information. The rumors on this device started in the middle of May, so it’s a bit refreshing to get some useful information on the phone.
We have seen the leaked information regarding the forthcoming Nexus tablet that appears to be produced by HTC. If you are interested in an HTC tablet, but not necessarily a Nexus device or the 8.9-inch screen size, you may be in luck. A new rumor indicates HTC has a 7-inch and a 12-inch tablet in the works, with the apparent codenames T7 and T12 respectively. No other information is available.
Do you think an HTC produced tablet, possibly running a tablet optimized version of HTC’s Sense interface, is something you would consider buying?

Before everyone starts yelling the F-word, (“Fake,” of course, not ****), it seems that the above picture is of an upcoming HTC smartwatch. The information on the screen, as most of you will notice, is fake, as it appears to have some elements of Sense 6 — the device will feature Android Wear, and Android Wear devices will not have any manufacturer skins.
HTC has officially announced the HTC Desire 610 will be available on July 25th through AT&T. As expected based on previously leaked information, the Desire 610 will come with a 4.7-inch running at 854 x 480 resolution. Powering the device is a Snapdragon 400 processor running at 1.2 GHz with 1GB of RAM and at least 8GB of onboard memory. The device does have a microSD slot that will support 64GB of additional memory.
Along with the announcement, AT&T has setup a page for customers to sign up to be notified when the device is available. However, no pricing information has been released. AT&T indicates the device will be available on their regular plans as well as through their GoPhone prepaid service.
Despite the recent announcement of a strong second quarter for HTC riding on the success of the HTC One (M8), it appears all is not well with upper level employees at the company. According to a report out today, Chief Marketing Officer Ben Ho has tendered his resignation only a year and half after taking over the role. Some sources are suggesting Ho may have been catching heat for HTC’s Robert Downey, Jr. marketing campaign. According to the report, Ho will remain with HTC through the end of the year even though Chairwoman Cher Wang has taken over the CMO duties.
At the same time, President of Engineering and Operations Fred Liu is retiring from the company after 16 years. The company is also losing Paul Golden, a former Samsung executive, who had been brought on as a marketing consultant pursuant to a short-term contract. It appears HTC may have wanted Golden to stay on longer, but he declined the opportunity.
HTC has not issued any official statements concerning these reported departures.
If you are interested in seeing what Android L may look like on an HTC device, you are in luck thanks to the efforts of the folks over at the XDA Forums. Senior member ssrij and several other developers managed to hack together a version of Android L for the HTC One (M7) using ramdisk and some kernel modifications.
The Android L port they created is still very rough and several functions are not yet operating. That includes features like WiFi, Bluetooth, the camera, and sound. You can still get a feel for what Android L will look like, which was the main goal in Google’s release of the developer preview in the first place. Even the official developer preview has proven to be a little too immature and missing too much for most people to consider making it a daily driver.
If you want to give Android L a try on your HTC One (M7), hit the source link for more information on how to grab the ROM.

The Dot View case, which received an intriguing app update yesterday, is currently limited to just the HTC One (M8). The company does not have a Dot View case for any of its other devices. However, that is likely to change. HTC, according to @evleaks, is working on a Dot View case for at least seven other devices.
There will be different levels, though. What the difference between each will be is not yet known, but it likely means HTC will water down the case. The ‘Dot View Premium’ case that is currently featured for the company’s flagship will also be heading to smartphones with the model number’s M8 Ace (One E8), B2 (alleged Butterfly successor), W8 (alleged Verizon Windows Phone), and EYE (alleged selfie handset for AT&T). The ‘Dot View Standard’ case is going to be paired with A51. And the ‘Dot View Lite’ will go with A21 and A11.
