There’s always something going on in the world of Android and although not all of it is going to be focused on new devices, there’s still room for it to have a little bit of excitement involved. That of course, is not the case for this past week as the biggest news comes in the form of HTC’s most recent flagship device launch. At the beginning of this past week HTC officially announced the HTC 10, their brand-new phone which comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor alongside 4GB of RAM and a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen. The phone won’t be available until sometime next month but pre-orders have already started.
Huawei also announced some new hardware this past week, showing off their new VR headset that is slated to be a competitor for Samsung’s Gear VR. There’s still no word on pricing and availability though. Motorola’s new phone is said to have leaked out again this past week, showing a closer look at the physical home button that is believed to be present, and Google officially launched the second developer preview for Android N which the OTA download links are also now available for. Facebook unveiled their own 360-degree camera rig this past week in a bid to further strengthen their video efforts, and Google’s Nexus device Live Cases can now be designed by consumers.
