HTC's next flagship appears to flaunt 20MP camera in leaked shots — Leak happens, and poor HTC might have just become the first victim out of the MWC lot this year. What we're looking at here are two alleged spyshots of the company's upcoming flagship, the "Hima" aka "M9," courtesy of ,who has since removed the images.

Muscle-sensing Myo gesture armband will be on Amazon this quarter — About a year after getting our first taste of the Myo, Thalmic Labs has announced that it's reaching out to the masses by way of Amazon this quarter. As with its pre-order on the company's website, this muscle-sensing gesture control armband will be available for $199.

HTC's next flagship phone to be unveiled on March 1st — While we're still in the middle of January, some of us are already hearing bits about the upcoming MWC. One e-mail that caught our attention comes from none other than HTC, who is already teasing its very own Barcelona event on March 1st -- the day before MWC kicks off.

Xiaomi's $30 Android streamer looks exactly like a phone charger — In addition to the phablet and headphones announced today, Xiaomi also threw in a little surprise. And by "little" we do mean literally, because this new Mi Box Mini is much smaller than the company's earlier Android streaming devices; it's so small that when it's plugged into the power socket, you'd easily mistake it as a USB phone charger.

Xiaomi mocks Apple with its very own premium phablet — There's just no stopping for the world's most valuable startup. After adding an air purifier, an IP camera, a smart light bulb and the affordable Redmi 2 to its portfolio, Xiaomi is now going right after the iPhone 6 Plus with its very own high-end phablet, the 5.7-inch Mi Note.

The Engadget Show: Inside the gadget markets of China, part one - Hong Kong — KIRFs either -- this country of 1.3 billion people has a lot more tech love to offer. In this first episode of a two-part series, we'll be showing you around the two hottest gadget districts of Hong Kong -- Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po.

Festo's flying AirPenguin robot induces daydreaming beyond the sea (video) — Festo AirPenguin's rare appearance outside its German labs -- the Gotengo-esque airship is at The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham, UK this week. Sure, this baby's a bit old, but being up close and personal with it is way more sensational than watching the mere 40-second-long segment from last time, and at least we now know it's the real deal.

HTC RE camera update turns you into a YouTube live show host — You may well already be hosting your own YouTube live show from your computer or phone, but for those who want a bit more versatility plus a wider-angle camera, they now have a new option courtesy of HTC.

Watch how Intel's depth cameras let you play 'drone ping pong' — It's all good and fun when you get to fly a drone, but there are times when you wish it could fly around by itself without crashing into things. As we found out at Intel's CES keynote just now, one solution to this is to equip the machine with depth cameras; and in Ascending Technologies' case, it went with six of Intel's RealSense depth cameras for its AscTec Firefly.

Motorola returns to China with the Moto X Pro, a repackaged Nexus 6 — After Lenovo's acquisition, it's a given that Motorola Mobility would eventually be making a comeback in China; and now we have confirmation of this, along with the announcement of a new but familiar-looking model.
