The Taiwanese company took to Twitter today to tease what appears to be a screen repair service that will be announced soon.
The image above was accompanied by the text “If only broken hearts were this easy to fix. Details 2/18.” It seems that HTC is preparing to unveil some scheme that would allow customers with broken devices to fix them. This could mean a fast screen replacement system or an exchange program, although it’s hard to say with so few clues. One way or another, we should find more this Tuesday.
Cracked screens, including broken cover glass and broken displays, are among the most common problems that smartphone users encounter. The HTC One, while made of aluminum and fairly solid, is just as exposed to hits and bumps as any other device, as our drop test from last year has shown. Luckily, users have a number of options for rugged cases, and we listed some good ones in our HTC One accessories roundup.
