Earnings dropped 23% from the previous month and 44% from the previous year, totaling around $ 89 million for the entire month. That’s the lowest HTC has experienced in 13 years, which is really bad.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has been making good on its promise to distribute Google’s monthly security updates for its flagship smartphones, and today has started rolling out February’s patches for the Mate 8. This upgrade’s objective is to fix a multitude of “critical bugs” present in the open-source operating system, which, if not dealt with, could have permitted devices to be remotely accessed by a simple text message. It also addresses users concerns regarding privilege escalation as it plasters over any previous holes exposing the resources that had the facility to brick a handset if tampered with.
As usual, the update is being distributed in stages. All unlocked Mate 8 units should receive the update within the next few days, whilst carrier-branded variants are expected to get it sometime next week — so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that push notification prompting you to download and install the update. It’s worth noting, however, as this is a relatively large piece of firmware, you’ll probably want to connect to a Wi-Fi network prior to pulling it from the servers in order to ensure you don’t run over your data allotment and rack up a nasty bill with your service provider.

Invites are out and a teaser is teasing. Samsung will show the world its newest hardware, led by its flagship phone, on February 21 at 1:00 PM ET.
Tonight, the company posted a teaser online to give the world an idea of what’s to come at its next Unpacked event. The video shows a man putting on a Gear VR headset and reaching out into the virtual reality-based world in front of him. The environment he’s immersed in is a dark room with a box containing the next flagship phone from Samsung. So the teaser hints that we’ll get both a new phone and an advanced virtual reality headset at MWC 2016.
The teaser pushed out alongside the press invites tonight is likely not the only one we’ll see in the weeks leading up to the launch date. Samsung will want to get everyone thinking and perhaps tease other new devices as well.
