HTC One M9 detailed in big video leaks

The HTC One M9 will be made official in the near future, but at the rate the leaks are happening, not much will be a surprise once it comes. Over the weekend, a German retailer ended up leaking several renders of the phone, and now three videos have surfaced, all of them showing off the smartphone in extensive detail, including text boxes pointing out key elements of the phone. We've got all three videos in their entirety, as well as the pertinent details, after the jump!

HTC One M9 renders, details leaked by German retailer

We're just a week away from the world's largest mobile industry event, so naturally companies are getting their stuff ready. Unfortunately, at least for the companies, sometimes that results in unwanted leaks of "official" marketing materials happen. It seems that HTC just can't seem to get a lockdown of its information before MWC 2015. Or does it? This latest leak delivers an almost complete picture, figuratively and literally, of the HTC One M9 that makes it sound almost too good to be true. The same can't be said of the smartphone, sadly.

New HTC One to be unveiled March 1

Let them stare. That's what HTC just told us through a teaser recently posted on Twitter. The new HTC One, possibly the HTC One M9, will finally be revealed on March 1, 2015, Sunday. We're expecting an announcement at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. This is good news for those HTC fans who've been waiting for the new flagship phone. The past weeks, we've been hearing rumors and leaks only but at least we now know that there is a new HTC One being prepped.

HTC drops the parentheses, next flagship will be the One M9

From HTC One (M7) to HTC One (M8) to HTC One M9, notice anything different? Yep, no more parentheses on the next flagship. It still is a rumor but I don't think there's any problem with HTC removing the extra symbols. HTC One M9 seems simpler. A website was spotted with the HTC One M9 reference which actually seems legit and nothing photoshopped. The page has since been taken down though. (And seriously, what's with the parentheses anyway?)

HTC Service Video Player app arrives at Google Play Store

There are a lot of HTC exclusive apps available but they don't always come to the Google Play Store immediately. The HTC Video Player has been ready for some time but it's only now the HTC app has been added to Google Play. Officially called as the 'HTC Service — Video Player' app, this one allows the phone to play streaming video and local files, thanks to a special decoding power.

Cloudex keeps your cloud photos in check, exclusive to HTC

There are numerous cloud storage apps and services available for Android devices but there's something special about using one that is exclusive to your device. Well, for HTC phone users, there's Cloudex that syncs phone to the media files saved in your cloud storage account. This app allows an easier and more convenient way to view favorite photos and videos anytime, anywhere. Cloudex is integrated with the HTC Gallery so it connects to your Dropbox, Google Drive, Flickr, and Facebook accounts.

HTC Desire 626 is a large display mid-range phone

How many premium brand mid-tier phones can you name that will have updated specs, 4G connectivity, and an HD screen to boot? Not that many, we think. Thankfully, HTC is adding another smartphone to the sub-USD$200 category this year with the HTC Desire 626. It has officially launched in Taiwan, but we’re hoping this makes it out to the international markets.

T-Mobile’s HTC One M8 receives Android Lollipop update

HTC seems to be busy rolling out Android 5.0 updates phones under its current lineup. The company could be in a hurry before the new flagship phone is unveiled at the Mobile World Congress this coming March. This time around, it’s the T-Mobile HTC One M8’s turn to get a taste of the sweet Lollipop. This is the 4.20.531.4 software update which actually refers to the Android 5.0 Lollipop.

CM12 arrives for Nexus 9, new nightlies for Motorola Droid Bionic

The Nexus 9 is Google’s new standard for tablets – a fine device produced for the Nexus line by HTC. Like its smartphone cousin, the Nexus 6, both flagship Google devices were the first ones launched with the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. It was just a matter of time before it got its own CyanogenMod version. That time is here and now, as CM12 now has nightly builds for the Nexus 9.
