Quickly becoming a yearly tradition for the company, HTC kicked off its Summer Sale event earlier today, offering sizable discounts for the One M9, Nexus 9, and a wide swath of accessories, including the Re camera.

Starting with the One M9, HTC is providing a 25 percent discount off the smartphone, effectively bringing the price down from $650 to $468.75. With the discount, HTC will also throw in its Uh-Oh protection plan, which nets you a replacement One M9 free of charge in the case of a broken display or water damage. At this sale price, it’s much easier for us to recommend the One M9, which we thought was a good, but not great, smartphone when we reviewed it back in March.

The discounts don’t end there, however, as HTC also offers a more substantial 40-percent discount for the Nexus 9 tablet. With the discount, the 16GB model goes from $400 to $239.40, while the 64GB variant goes from $479 to $287.40, rather impressive discounts for a tablet we gave an Editors’ Choice award to when we reviewed it last November.

Not surprisingly, HTC left the biggest discounts for its accessories, including the oft-forgotten Re camera, meant to be a competitor to the GoPros of the world. With its 50 percent discount, the Re goes from $200 to $99.50, though such a price point has been rather common over the past few months. Looking elsewhere, the 50 percent discount also applies to everything from cases to earphones, with even the Nexus 9 keyboard case discounted from its normal $129 price tag to $64.50

If you want to take advantage of any of these deals, it’d be best to do so with haste. The Summer Sale only goes on today through 11:59pm PT, so you’d be doing yourself a favor if you think quickly.

iPhone 15 color family includes: Black, Green, Blue, Yellow, and Pink.

One of Apple’s latest and greatest, the iPhone 15 Plus, is finally here. Announced at Apple's big iPhone 15 event, the iPhone 15 Plus gives you a huge 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with Dynamic Island, an A16 Bionic chip for fast performance, and a powerful dual-camera system with a 48MP wide and 12MP ultrawide lenses. It has also ditched Lightning for USB-C, and it comes in five fun colors this year.

But considering that the iPhone 15 Plus still starts at a hefty $899 for the base model, that’s some pricey glass and aluminum. You definitely want to protect your investment, and one of the easiest ways to do so is with a good case. Here are some of the best iPhone 15 Plus cases you can buy right now.

Is this our first look at the Google Pixel 8a?
Side by side images of a reported Google Pixel 8a.

In May, there were reports that the Google Pixel 7a could be the last of Google's budget-friendly Pixel A smartphone series. Despite the series' success, it was believed that the 7a would be the last one. However, a recent post on X, formerly known as Twitter, by @yabhishekhd has sparked new rumors that there might actually be a Google Pixel 8a after all.

The tweet includes hands-on images of the supposed Google Pixel 8a, which is indeed interesting. The leak comes several months before any new Pixel A series would likely be released. The current Google Pixel 7a was only released this past May.

It's slim and lightweight too which is always good to see, even if it does offer only IP64 water resistance and isn't particularly durable.
