  1. HTC announces the 5K Vive Pro 2 and Vive Focus 3 VR headsets At its ViveCon 2021 virtual event today, HTC unveiled two new virtual reality headsets. The new VR kits are aimed at separate markets, with the HTC Vive Pro 2 heading to PC VR consumers while the standalone HTC Vive Focus 3 is targetting business purposes. The gaming-orientated Vive Pro 2 touts vast improvements over its predecessor from 2018, coming with a "5K" resolution (2448 pixels per eye), 120-degree FOV display running at 120hz, as well as fast-switching RGB sub-pixels for almost eliminating the annoying screen door effect and motion blur. HTC is also including an IPD (inter-pupillary distance) slider, an adjustable head strap, a resizing dial, and promising a balanced headset for maximum comfort. The built-in headphones are Hi-Res Audio certified, and third-party headphones are supported as well. The headset is also backward compatible with DisplayPort 1.2, utilizing Display Stream Compression with help from Nvidia and AMD, so that older graphics cards can still enjoy the bigger and better hardware. The Vive Pro 2 launches on June 4 and pre-orders are available from today. Purchasing the full kit will set consumers back £1299 / $1399 / €1399, with the package including the headset, Base Station 2.0, and Vive Controllers. However, HTC is offering a headset-only upgrade for those who own previous generation Vive or other SteamVR trackers and accessories. This option will cost £659 / $749 / €739 during the pre-order period. Meanwhile, the business-focused Vive Focus 3's display is almost identical to the Vive Pro 2, offering a 5K, 120-degree screen with RGB sub-pixels. However, the refresh rate is set at 90hz over here. The magnesium alloy framed headset keeps the IPD sliders as well, and has quick-release buttons for removing the front and rear gaskets for easy cleaning or swapping in between sessions. This headset is also an all-in-one design, meaning a PC is not a requirement for using it. The chipset powering it is from Qualcomm'S Snapdragon XR2 platform - much like the Quest 2. The battery that's powering the device is mounted on the back, which means a more balanced design according to HTC. The battery pack can also be swapped easily and touts a 50% charge in 30 minutes. Contact-free open back speakers with a special 'audio privacy setting' for those needing privacy during meetings are also included. While hand tracking is being worked on, HTC is packaging a couple of redesigned controllers that utilize the headset's cameras for tracking. These are slated to last 15 hours on a single charge. The Vive Focus 3 will go on sale starting on June 24 with a £1060 / $1300 / €1180 price tag. Source: HTC announces the 5K Vive Pro 2 and Vive Focus 3 VR headsets
  2. HTC 'Vive Air' wireless headset leaks on design award site It looks to be designed to capitalize on the popularity of VR fitness. HTC HTC Vive is getting set to release a fitness-focused VR headset called the Vive Air, according to a leak from the World Design Guide awards. It looks to offer a lightweight, comfortable design with up to four tracking cameras — much like the Oculus Quest series, but with larger optics. According to the Design Guide description, the Vive Air is "specially designed for virtual fitness, optimized for high intensity with long use." To that end, it uses knitted materials inspired by running shoes that are breathable and quick-drying for better ventilation during heated exercise. It also features a quick-release design so you can easily pull off the soft components to wash them. HTC Training and active games like Beat Saber have been some of the biggest (and frankly, few) successes for VR. It's particularly compelling for boxing, dance and other fitness programs since it immerses you in a 3D environment where you can more easily see how to do moves. It also makes exercise more fun, adding measurable extra enjoyment compared to using music alone, according to one study. To that end, a dedicated VR fitness headset that's light, easy to wash and with better tracking capability makes a lot of sense. If HTC plans to release the device (which seems likely) it's not clear if it will introduce other fitness accessories as well. However, it's likely to reveal the new model and more details at ViveCon 2021 on May 11th and 12th of this year. HTC Update, Tuesday April 20th, 9:21am ET: An HTC spokesperson has shared the following statement, saying that the design is "only a concept" which contains elements that we'll see in future HTC products. It's exciting to see our concept piece, the VIVE Air VR headset, win an iF Design Award. While this is only a concept, the design language has elements and inspirations you'll see elsewhere in our products. We're not ones to rest on our laurels, so although it's great to win this award, we have business to attend to - hopefully we'll see you on 11/12 May at VIVECON.

  3. HTC Wildfire E3 is official with four cameras and a 4,000 mAh battery HTC has its glory days way in its past but it hasn't given up and today it had a new phone launch. It has released the HTC Wildfire E3 - an entry-level smartphone with four cameras, a big battery and a Mediatek chipset. The Wildfire E3 runs on Helio P22 platform with octa-core CPU running at 2.0GHz. It has 3/4 GB RAM and two storage options - 64GB or 128GB, with up to 128GB more through a microSD slot. The screen of the phone is a 6.5” LCD with HD+ resolution. There’s no room for the fingerprint scanner on the front, so the sensor made its way to the back. Speaking about the back, the main camera setup includes a 13MP main shooter, an 8MP ultrawide-angle snapper and two 2MP sensors - one for macro images, another for portrait photos. The front-facing camera is also 13 MP, hidden behind a waterdrop notch. The phone comes with a 4,000 mAh battery, charged through the USB-C port. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, a 3.5 mm audio jack, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac both on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, Dual LTE support. The OS is Android 10. HTC Wildfire E3 The HTC Wildfire E3 is available in two colors - Blue or Black. It is currently listed at the Russian retailer Citilink, but pricing and availability are yet to be revealed.

  4. My girlfriends phone is having a problem I have fixed the problem before by deleting cache I think now its back. It used to be if she tried to visit fifth third bank on her phones browser using the internet icon on the main screen she would get a white screen blank white screen. Now she gets a blank white screen on every website. I have deleted all the cache from the google app and deleted all cookies. Ill keep trying looking but does anyone know about this and if so how do you fix it. Thank you for your help in advance.
  5. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Well, that's not entirely fair if you are a firm believer in the future of blockchain technology and crypto currencies in the end user space. That was the spotlight feature on the original HTC Exodus 1 and the same is true for the newly announced Exodus 1s. The phone doubles as a hardware ledger and this time around has a few other crypto tricks up its sleeve. But more on that in a bit. First thins first, however, the hardware itself. There really is no way around it, the 1s has pretty terrible hardware for 2019. You are looking at a Snapdragon 435 chipset, along with 4GB of RAM, pushing pixels on a 5.7-inch, 18:9 HD+ display. You also get 64GB of storage and and SD card slot. But the latter might not be meant for your multimedia. The phone still uses a microUSB port. But at least you get a 3.5 mm audio jack. In the camera department the Exodus 1s offers a single 13MP PDAF snapper on the back and one of the same resolution of the front - no autofocus, but complete with an LED flash light. Two SIM card slots with 4G plus 3G dual standby, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and last, but not least, a 3,000 mAh battery keeping the lights on. Oh, and Android 8.1. Makes sense, we guess. HTC's product page is rather scare on details, but we think it is fairly safe to just check the HTC Desire 12s specs page for any additional info you might require. All of this can be pre-ordered today for EUR 219. Although HTC's website doesn't exactly make it clear if you can use "outdated" cash to fund that purchase, or they are still going to convert the price over to a Crypto currency during the final steps of checkout, as was initially the scheme with the original Exodus 1. Anyway, now that we're done making fun of the hardware, we should talk about the meat of HTC's product offer. The main added-value, crypto-enthusiast, added value attraction on the Exodus 1s is the ability to run a full Bitcoin node on the phone. Without going into too much detail, that means that the phone has the means of keeping the entire Bitcoin ledger in its memory. Well, on a microSD card, top be more precise with at least 400GB of storage, sold separately. That should be good for some time since the current Bitcoin ledger is about 260GB big and growing at a rate of roughly 60GB a year. The reason you would want the entire ledger in your pocket is that you can verify transactions for yourself and operate with more security, then, say, using the popular Simplified Payment Verification (SPV) wallet scheme, where a third-party website takes part in the validation process. You can also, apparently, query the ledger itself for transaction data, without sharing any info with the world. And last, but not least, you are actively contributing to the Bitcoin network, which definitely holds some allure to enthusiasts who believe in the future and viability of the network. There are some caveats, though, like the fact that currently only a Bitcoin node can run locally. No other currencies. Plus, running it apparently puts quite a strain on the three year old chipset, which is why HTC themselves only recommend running the node while connected to a wall socket or power bank. There is all the data usage involved as well, which can't help the battery situation either. Perhaps real enthusiast might have better luck with the new technology on the original and more powerful Exodus 1. It will also be getting the Bitcoin node feature as an update at some point. Other than that, just like its sibling, the Exodus 1s still has the HTC's hardware Zion crypto wallet with your keys hidden in the Snapdragon's security enclave. There is also the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which runs the Zion Vault software in a sandbox environment for extra security and also guards against common attack vectors, like third-party keyboards with key loggers. And if you lose the phone itself Social Key Recovery allows you to pick several trusted people in such a way that if they all come together, they can recreate your private key. This is called Shamir’s Secret Sharing or (as it’s better known in the crypto world) key sharding. No word on decentralized app or dApp support this time around. But we can only imagine that just like the Exodus 1 the 1s can run these as well. Honestly, do tell us in the comments if you think HTC is gambling a bit too fast and loose with the whole Exodus project as a last resort. Or, perhaps we are missing something and failing to see a bigger picture where the Exodus 1s is an important piece of the puzzle. Source: 1.
