HTC has just updated its Gallery application in the Play Store. The app now has a completely redesigned user interface which complies with Google’s recently-announced Material Design guidelines, together with a new ‘tag view’ and a Face Fusion photo editor.
Earlier this year, HTC started its Power To Give initiative to benefit research programs. The initiative is literally powered by mobile devices. The Power To Give app uses the computing power of a device while it is unused, plugged in, and connected to a WiFi network on behalf of the research programs. Basically, it creates a grid throughout the world full of processing. The app was updated recently and it provides Power To Give with a fresh design that is much nicer. The new look provides a clean look of research programs benefited and how much time a device has contributed. In addition to the redesign, HTC included single sign-on for multiple projects as well as a sharing function for social media accounts.
Hit the break for the gallery and download links.

At the beginning of December, HTC announced two new mid-range smartphones, the HTC Desire 620 and the HTC Desire 620G. Although the phones are very similar, there are a few hardware specs that differ, notably the processors used in each and the lack of 4G LTE support for the Desire 620G. When the devices were unveiled, HTC did not share any information regarding market availability outside of Taiwan. New information from HTC indicates the device will be sold in the U.K. starting in early 2015. Along with the U.K., HTC is also making the devices available in India later this month and other Asian markets may see the device this month as well.
Starting today, residents in India can pick up HTC’s latest mobile accessory, the RE Camera, from online retailer Snapdeal for Rs. 9,990 ($160). The device is currently available in white and black colorway’s with stock of the teal and orange versions expected to arrive soon.
The HTC One M9, reportedly codenamed the HTC Hima, will be the flagship successor to the popular HTC One M8. As reported by TalkAndroid last week, the Hima’s specs have potentially already been revealed. Now with this latest leak from nowhereelse.fr, we may get a better understanding of its appearance.
After alleged specs for HTC’s next flagship smartphone surfaced a few days ago, including the codename Hima for the project, Twitter tipster @upleaks is back with information on several other devices HTC is working on. The devices include several variants in the Hima line of smartphones along with a new generation Butterfly smartphone for the Japanese market and a new HTC branded tablet.
