Everyone, at least by now, knows that MWC 2016 will not be the place where the HTC One M10 launches. The plan is to host a standalone event in March or April to give the company’s newest products the ability to get as much attention as possible rather than likely being overshadowed by Samsung and LG in Barcelona later this month. Joining the One M10 as a fresh HTC product launching in 2016 will be a smartwatch known internally has Halfbreak. Interestingly, the two devices will not be made available in the United States at the same time.

It’s nice to see companies out there still releasing phones with 5-inch displays in a world where 5.5 inches and 5.7 inches is considered a norm. Among those remaining are HTC and Samsung, but the latter utilizes the Galaxy Note to serve an audience that demands large displays. HTC, however, really sticks to an end of the spectrum closer to 5 inches. Last year’s One M9 had a 5-inch display despite much of the competition going well beyond that. And the One A9 from HTC also stuck with a 5-inch display to remain comfortable in any consumer’s hands. But, in 2016, there was concern around the web that HTC would choose to raise the display size of the company’s next flagship, which is known internally Perfume.

[Deal] HTC takes 40% off the Nexus 9 and throws in a free keyboard

nexus_9_display_bottom_TA

The Nexus 9, which was launched in late 2014, is still being sold as Google has positioned the Pixel C as a high-end tablet belonging to another line that is just getting started. So, for people wanting an premium-yet-affordable tablet with stock Android, the Nexus 9 remains the most logical choice (unless you’re a gamer).

When the tablet hit the market, pricing started at $399 for a base model with 16GB of internal storage. And the 32GB model raised the price up to $479. Need a LTE signal for use away from a WiFi connection? The LTE model that comes with 32GB of internal storage is priced at $599. Today, though, you can save big on any model of the Nexus 9. Through HTC’s weekly Hot Deals promotion, the Nexus 9 has a 40% discount and a free Logitech keyboard is being included if you get the LTE model.

Later this month, Samsung and LG will be hosting events in Barcelona during MWC 2016 while HTC skips the conference to launch the One M10 at a later date. The reason for this is that HTC needs to be in the spotlight all on its own and avoid being overshadowed by two of its biggest competitors. So, until we finally see the company announce the handset, we’ll have rely upon leaks and reports to get an idea of what the One M10 will offer. Evan Blass, who exposes devices rapidly and accurately, revealed yesterday that the handset won’t have the annoying logo-stamped black bar below the display like the One (M7), One (M8), and One M9 did. But now we know what the front of the next One installment should look like.

Blass returned today to share an image of the HTC One M10 roaming around in the wild.
