HTC debuts Butterfly 2 across Asia

The latest HTC Butterfly has been with us for some time as a Japanese exclusive (the Butterfly J) and today the Taiwanese company has rolled it out to the rest of Asia. Now rebranded as the Butterfly 2, the device gives HTC another flagship quality presence in the market, although we doubt it will ever come to US or European shores. There are plenty of people who think that the Butterfly 2 is actually a better handset than HTC's true...

HTC to launch the One E8 with Sprint

HTC has been rolling out plenty of devices in the US of late and the Taiwanese company will have another arriving in a few days.

HTC debuts the Desire 816 in the US

HTC's Desire 816 is a solid smartphone with good looks and mid-range credentials. It has helped to fulfil HTC's promise of covering more areas of the market, but so far it has been unavailable in the United States. You can probably see where I am going with this, but now the HTC Desire 816 has been launched in the US.

HTC’s A11 is a 64-bit budget device

Apple launched the iPhone 5s last year and the company accused of not innovating anymore put a 64-bit A7 processor in the smartphone. A year later Android is still trying to catch up, and the platforms chief chip maker, Qualcomm, has said devices running 64-bit architecture would arrive during the last half of this year.
