HTC has reported positive financial performance for Q4 2014 earning 47.9 billion Won (1.33 billion euros) with net profit amounting to 0.5 billion Won (13.88 million euros). While it seems small compared to what other companies have earning, keep in mind that HTC showed a loss in 2013.
How was the year 2014 as total for HTC? The company showed a loss of 36 million euros in 2013 but for year the company earned a profit of 41.37 million euros thanks to strong Christmas sales.
So will the Taiwanese company show similar growth in first quarter of 2015? Well we sure wish though as Samsung and Apple needs more competitors. Financial and tech analysts are waiting to see new offerings from HTC at mobile world congress 2015 event.
HTC is working on a new flagship phone and it looks similar to the One M8. The leaks comes from nowhereelse.fr that leaked two photos showing front and back of the HTC One M9. The front of the device is similar with some spacing changes for the stereo speaker grilles and thinner bezels to the screen.
On the back, you will find that HTC has done away with their duo camera design and has now shifted back to the conventional cameras. There is a single large camera backed by dual LED flash to take your pictures and videos now.
No specifications or release date is mentioned but we are expecting it to be released during Mobile World Congress 2015.
We all love Chrome on our Android phones but most OEMs including Samsung and HTC continue to make customized version of “Android Open Source Project” (AOSP). HTC wants to push improvements they make with the HTC Sense Web Browser quicker to the users and that is why they have made it available on Play Store for easy updates.
Here is the change log for the new version:
* Text reflow: Depending on zoom levels, text will be wrapped to fit the width of the screen for easy browsing.
* Read later: Save an article to read later, even when connection is off.
* Redesigned interface that’s clean and easy to read.
You can find the HTC Sense Web Browser as HTC Internet on your phone. It is available on all HTC devices running Sense ROMs based on KitKat or higher. This also means it would not work on Play Edition devices.
