HTC U Ocean to come with Sense 9: New features

HTC U Ocean to come with Sense 9: new features
HTC is back, baby! After a year of ups and downs, the company announced its U smartphone line two months ago, and is now ready to release them with all of its new features, which you will now know. The devices will feature the newest HTC user interface, Sense 9, and will come with a variety of improvements over last year's Sense 8 while bringing new features.

They will also release the HTC U, codenamed "Ocean" along the two already announced. It will come with a 5.5" QHD screen, the Snapdragon 835, but its most innovative feature will be Edge Sense, a set of sensors that lets you customize actions like swiping.


This means the HTC U will have a touch sensitive frame all around its screen, possibly becoming one of the most innovative smartphones of the year. Oh, and VentureBeat also reports it will come with a new Sony sensor in its camera. HTC is expected to unveil the U in April, with launch scheduled for May.

Thoughts? Can HTC win your heart again?

Google Pixel 2: What Features to Expect

Google Pixel 2: What Features to Expect


Last year, Google gave us the first two Pixel Smartphones i.e. Pixel with 5" Display and Pixel XL with 5.5" Display, with some extra Artificial intelligence in the form of the fledgling Google Assistant. 

Both Google Pixel and Pixel XL were great devices but things like water resistance and an orignal design were left out because they ran out of time.

For 2017, Google has already decided and is all set to really show their vision for the highest-end Android phones. 




Here are Some expected features of Google Pixel 2nd Generation (AKA Google Pixel 2017) -




Snapdragon 835 processor - Qualcomm has already announced it's top-tier mobile processor which will be powering flagship devices this year including the Note 8, S8 and 2017 Google Pixel Devices.

Dual Camera - Google Pixel and Pixel XL are probably the best Camera Smartphones of the year 2016. In 2017 Google might implement dual-camera setup to make Google Pixel 2nd Generation the best Camera smartphone.

QHD Display - Google might upgrade the Pixel smartphone display from 1080 x 1920p to 1440 x 2560p, making the display at level with the Pixel XL.



Water Resistant - 2016 Google Pixel were not Water resistant, but in 2017 Google wants your phone to be there for you, even in less-than-ideal conditions. Water resistant feature will keep your Google Pixel phone safe from splashes and drops in water. 

What features you expect in 2017 Google Pixel Phones? Share your thoughts below!

Vote for your favorite Smartphone brand of 2016


So many things happened in the tech world this year! Earlier this year, we saw HTC make its tenth comeback with the HTC 10, while Samsung continued on its Galaxy S success with the S7. At the same time LG tried to claim the "modularity King" title while Motorola gave them a run for their money with the Moto Z series. 

And that's not half of the story! Lenovo impressed us with its Tango phone while Google released its Pixel, with Huawei even admitting they were the original manufacturers for it and that the Nexus phones have never succeed. And while we wait for Nokia's comeback next year, the mid-tier and low-end categories got really competitive this year. We saw Motorola expand its G, E and M lines (and the last remaining Lenovo Vibe phones), while Sony and LG moved to the X series, releasing many phones under the X brand. Samsung and Huawei continued world dominance with their Galaxy and Honor series, but OnePlus became a household name. 



If we move out of Android, we enter the scary Apple space. We saw a cheaper iPhone earlier this year, remember? Then Apple released the iPhone 7 series and sold millions of it, as always. Samsung tried to compete with this new iPhone but its Note 7 went down as one of the biggest disasters in tech history after exploding and making them lose millions. 

Now it's time for our readers to choose which brand released the best phones of the year. You can only pick one!

Goodbye HTC: mobile business to be sold



No one would have imagined this six years ago...or even earlier this year. Don't get us wrong, it's always sad to see companies that have done so much for the mobile industry in trouble and on the verge of bankruptcy. 

According to new rumors from a Chinese source, HTC might put an end to its mobile division after years of huge losses each quarter. The HTC One was announced as the company's comeback, but it didn't reach expectations. The M8 and M9 weren't backed by a big marketing campaign so its sales were poor. All HTC Desire mid-rangers didn't reach expectations and the HTC 10 was a great phone that very little people bought.




The rumor suggests HTC's co-founder might make a deal on its mobile division earlier next year. Maybe this means the Pixel phones "by Google" (manufactured by HTC) didn't reach expectations? It's hard to tell.

But we do hope HTC can find a good home for that mobile division, provided these rumors are true. Perhaps a Chinese manufacturer could buy it just to get those brand rights since the HTC brand is well-known in Europe and the US. Or perhaps it's all just a rumor and we will still see HTC devices in the future.
