A few years ago, starting with the One M8, HTC started itself on a trend of a distinct numbering scheme for its flagship smartphones.
HTC today sent out teasers for the launch of its next flagship handset: the HTC U. The company will be unveiling the handset less than a month from now on 16th May.
Details about HTC’s next flagship, the U, have been leaked by LlabTooFeR today. Known for his ROMs for HTC devices and leaks, today’s leak surrounding the HTC U includes some good and bad news.
HTC’s next flagship phone, codenamed Ocean, will feature sensors embedded in its frame that will allow users to control various aspects of the device using gestures like squeezing or swiping. These gestures and actions will be completely customisable by the user as well.
HTC’s President of Smartphone and Connected Devices, Chialin Chang, confirmed in an interview with Engadget that the Taiwanese company plans on launching only six to seven handsets this year. This would be a drastic reduction from over a dozen handsets that HTC launched last year.
