HTC Phones: Models, Specs, Features, News, Apps & Reviews
HTC kickstarted 2017 with the announcement of its new U lineup of phones, the U Ultra and U Play. The specs of the U Ultra led many to believe that it was going to be HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2017 even though it featured a Snapdragon 821 processor. Worry not, though, HTC’s President of smartphones, Chialin Chang, has confirmed in an interview that HTC will indeed be launching a Snapdragon 835 powered flagship later this year.
HTC’s quest for a smartwatch hasn’t been a well-kept secret up to this point, but it looks like it was all for naught.
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.
HTC today officially announced its latest handset under its new ‘U’ branding: the HTC U Ultra. The handset features a new design language and unlike other phones from HTC over the few years, it makes use of glass at the both front and back.
At the end of this week, HTC has a “For U” event planned, where it’s expected the company will unveil a brand new flagship.
HTC has a follow-up to the One X9 it launched a year ago in the works, if a new report is any indicator.
Following the series of tests and pre-release procedures, HTC has gone through the steps to upgrade the unlocked HTC 10 flagship smartphone.
