RocketNews 24:

The new phone will look similar to HTC’s current flagship One phone, which is one of the best Android phones available.

The smartwatch will be focused on fitness, thanks to a new partnership HTC now has with Under Armour, according to the report. HTC and Under Armour announced their partnership a few weeks ago.

The phone will also have a 20 megapixel camera, which is much higher than the standard 8 or 12 megapixels used in high-end phones today.

As HTC’s smartphone sales continue to struggle, the company is looking for new product categories. One key area will be smart appliances, similar to what Google’s Nest division makes with its thermostats and smoke detectors, Business Insider has learned.

HTC is planning to launch at least one “smart appliance” later this year, but probably not at the same time as the new watch and phone.

Sony releases an unlocked Xperia Z1 with US-friendly LTE

 

Sony Xperia Z1

Engadget:

 

Frustrated that you’ve had to sign up to T-Mobile just to pick up an Xperia Z1 variant with completely US-native LTE? That won’t be a problem after this week. Sony has released an unlocked version of the Z1 that can take advantage of 4G speeds on AT&T, T-Mobile and their virtual network partners.

The flagship Android phone should also support LTE on bigger Canadian carriers, if you’re inclined to travel. You won’t get anything else special for the $620 you’ll spend on the unlocked model, but it may scratch the itch if you’re unwilling to wait for stateside releases of newer hardware like the Z2 or Z1 Compact.
