2017 started off as a turbulent year for HTC, because we knew, implicitly, that by declaring that there would be few launches of smartphones for this year, HTC was hiding a grim economic reality. Several months later, HTC confirmed the suspicions and reports from around the world agreeing to let hundreds of its best engineers go to work on Google in exchange for several 100 million dollars. But this money is not enough to rebound the HTC red numbers, which is why new anonymous sources point to 2018 of HTC even more frugal in terms of new releases. In particular, began to discuss two of the possible HTC smartphones for next year: the HTC “U12”, successor to the HTC U11, and a variant of the HTC U11 called HTC “U11 EYEs”.
The less ambitious and exciting HTC “U11 EYEs” would be a cheaper variant of the HTC U11 to launch in January 2018. The HTC “U11 EYEs” or whatever it ends up being marketed, would have a Super LCD display of 5.99 inches and Full HD + resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels, that is, aspect ratio 18: 9). As for their memories, processor or pixelate of their cameras, nothing has been revealed yet.
On the other hand, several rumors have converged towards the HTC “U12”, the supposed successor of the HTC U11, to try to describe, even superficially, its characteristics, before other rumors do so more exhaustively. It is said that the HTC U12 would have an impressive display with 4K resolution, something that would not only guarantee the aspect ratio 18: 9 and, therefore, probably also a full-screen front design
But also a privileged position with respect to virtually all the competition, where the Full HD + resolution is progressively transformed into the standard measure for medium to high range devices, and with some more adventurous high-end smartphones offering QHD + resolution (2880 x 1440 pixels).
In addition, the HTC U12 would be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which suggests a later release, perhaps sometime in the second quarter of 2018, as it knows the exclusivity agreement that Qualcomm has with Samsung and several other Chinese companies for sending them shipments of their latest announced high-end processor.
Anyway, these could be great news for HTC or very bad news, it is a great idea to concentrate quality on fewer products to save costs and, at the same time, stay competitive, but the same thing HTC wanted to do during 2017 and the releases are not they did what the competition needed.
