HTC India has started teasing a new smartphone launch in India. The company on its official twitter handle has posted a video teaser highlighting some of its achievements over the past decade.
It was reported earlier this month that HTC will make a comeback in India with new smartphones this month and now the company has started teasing the upcoming launch. The brand is making a comeback to India after a gap of more than a year. HTC shut down its operation in India last year after Faisal Siddiqui left the organisation.
The tweet comes with the caption “Our Journey of Innovation continues”. It reads “Hello India! Our journey of innovation continues. Can you guess what’s coming next? #htcIndia”.
The video highlights that in 2007, the company introduced the world’s first touch-centric phone. Then in 2008, the world’s first Google Android phone, made by HTC was announced. In 2013, HTC launched One M8 smartphone which was the first smartphone with a metal body and dual rear cameras.
In 2016, HTC launched its first smartphone withoptical image stabilisation (OIS) in the front and back cameras. Lastly, the video shows an outline of a smartphone to be unveiled in 2019.
Hello India! Our journey of innovation continues.

The video, however, does not say anything about the smartphone to be launched but it shows that the smartphone will feature a waterdrop notch display. HTC launched Desire 19+ in Taiwan in June this year with a waterdrop notch display. It is now expected that HTC might launch the same phone in India soon.
HTC Desire 19+ features a 6.2-inch HD+ (720 x 1520 pixels) display with a water-drop notch design and comes equipped with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. The phone has a triple rear camera setup with 13-megapixel as the primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide angle secondary sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On the front, it features a 16-megapixel selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. It features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and supports face recognition unlocking. The phone runs on Android Pie operating system and gets its power from a 3,850mAh non-removable battery.
