The company is planning to launch a flagship device along with two devices in mid-range segment during Q1 of 2017.
If the latest round of leaks is believed to be true then it seems that HTC might be launching three new smartphones in Q1 of 2017. The company is going to announce a new flagship device in Q1 and we might see two affordable devices as well.
If we go by the report, then the company might launch its much-hyped flagship device, the HTC 11 during the first quarter. However, the report did not mention that the company would be announcing the rest of the two phones at the same time, so we might expect that the company will launch devices within three months. The other two devices are rumoured to be X10 and a concept phone known as Ocean Note.
A few months back, we heard rumours about HTC working on concept phones codenamed Ocean. The major highlight of the concept phone will its touch-sensitive frame, which lets designers adds contextual controls that would take up little screen space.
The company has earlier sent out the media invites for an event to be held on January 12 where it will possibly make its "next big announcement". The company rolled out a teaser invite across all its social media handles with the tagline "For U". Although, the company has not spilt the beans about the event, by many speculate that it might unveil a new mid-range device known as HTC X10.
According to multiple reports, the device might come with a 5.5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. Under the hood, there will be a MediaTek Helio P10 processor powering the device as opposed to the MediaTek X10 chipset used in the HTC X9. The device will is likely to feature a 3GB of RAM and for the optics, there will be a 13-megapixel rear-camera with OIS.
