HTC has seen better days, and while the company’s latest flagship smartphone has been doing well, the company is still considering a variety of options to help improve its situation.
HTC Phones: Models, Specs, Features, News, Apps & Reviews
Google officially announced Android 8.0 Oreo just a few days ago. Naturally, the updates will first make their way to the Pixel and Nexus smartphones. Many were wondering as to which OEM will be the first to offer the update. Well, it seems like HTC will be the first, as the company has just announced that the HTC U11, U Ultra, and the HTC 10 will get the update shortly.
The HTC Alexa app has started rolling out to the North American variants of the HTC U11. The app officially brings Alexa access to the handset. This is not the first smartphone to come with Alexa on board as the Huawei Mate 9 had this honor a few months ago. However, the Huawei handset required customers to launch the Alexa app to use its features, while Alexa on the HTC U11 works hands-free. This basically means that you can activate the feature by simply saying “Alexa” rather than having to open the app and activate it manually.
Over the weekend, it was revealed that the stock keyboard on the HTC 10 has started showing ads to users. This led to a huge uproar against HTC on online forums as many users thought the company was trying to make money through its existing users with such shady tactics.
LlabTooFeR is a popular source of HTC leaks in the industry. Well, he has now leaked yet another device earlier today, codenamed the HTC “Ocean Life”. This isn’t a high-end device and features hardware that one would associate with mid-tier smartphones.
HTC today unveiled its latest flagship handset: the HTC U11. Featuring a design similar to that of the HTC U Ultra, the 11 also comes with a 3D liquid surface rear that gives it a very premium and glossy look.
Ahead of its unveiling tomorrow, HTC’s next flagship — the HTC 11 — has leaked in a hands-on video that shows the various features of the phone, including the squeeze frame feature.
The HTC U 11 is going to be unveiled on May 16, but ahead of that big date, the specifications for HTC’s next flagship smartphone may have surfaced.
