Right now, T-Mobile is pushing a software update to the HTC One M9 on its network. The carrier updated the device’s support page this morning with a listing for new features and improvements.
Things are not going too well over at HTC. The Taiwanese company is shipping fewer devices, delaying new hardware, and losing money at a rapid pace. Chairwoman Cher Wang has had to apologize to shareholders for its slumping performance. As Wang hinted, HTC will seemingly have a flagship coming this fall to try and prevent any further damage.
HTC has released a new video for the HTC One M9 that tries to play on emotion in a big way. Using the hashtag RallyAroundMichelle, the spot portrays a young woman who is having a difficult day. After posting a social media message “I am nobody” the responses start to pour in reminding Michelle how many people do care about her. Of course, all of this is accessed via her HTC One M9 as her day is slowly brightened by the messages.

Remember that fitness watch HTC unveiled alongside its HTC One M9 flagship back in March? Let me refresh your memory.
At Mobile World Congress, HTC unveiled a fitness watch with a partnership with Under Armour called “HTC Grip.” The HTC Grip had a design similar to the Nike FuelBand and was to be targeted towards athletes or just anyone who remains active. The device wasn’t going to have a dedicated heart rate sensor, but it did promise built-in GPS.
When HTC first launched the One M9+ at an event in Beijing back in April, there were some that were disappointed that it wasn’t being made available worldwide. It would seem that it’s time to turn that frown upside down though, with HTC announcing today that it will be launching the One M9+ in Europe soon. Read more
It was only yesterday that HTC announced its latest mid-range smartphone, the Desire 626s, as part of a trio of new devices that are en route to the U.S., and now Sprint has revealed that it will launch the handset on its Prepaid tariff in just three days time, Sunday, July 19.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor is arguably the most controversial component for mobile devices ever designed and released. Before any devices actually hit market with the flagship CPU there were rumors and accusations about overheating problems with the chip, and we’ve seen a ton of damage control to try and play down those issues.

OnePlus says they’re using v2.1 of the processor in their upcoming device, and Sony has mentioned that their Xperia devices are using the slightly improved version of the chip.
