Week 10 in review: HTC 10 leaks, Android N features

MWC 2015 brought plenty of high-profile announcements, but many Android fans are still waiting on HTC to announce its next move. It is no secret that the manufacturer has been struggling lately, but hopefully the 10 will have what it takes to put HTC back in the race. HTC fans also learned that the Taiwanese company secured a Nexus manufacturing deal with Google for three years.

Speaking of flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its edged sibling are once more making headlines. Now that the first batch of units is starting to reach eager fans, everybody seems to be busy either testing Samsung’s current crown jewel or wondering when theirs will arrive.

Another big announcement from the previous week is the developer preview of Android N, which came out of the blue. An early build of Google’s next mobile OS can already be tested out on various Nexus devices and there are quite a few additions to enjoy, like multi-windows support.

In other news, Samsung is constantly outing new devices, like the budget Galaxy J1 Mini, Galaxy TabPro S, a new Netbook 9 series of notebooks and soon, the Galaxy A9 Pro, allegedly with a removable battery.
