HTC will announce at least one new device at its press conference, which kicks off tomorrow, January 12. According to the latest rumors, we can expect the company to take the wraps off a smartphone codenamed Ocean Note.

Recently, images of the rumored device have been posted online that show the upcoming phablet in all its glory. We can see that the Ocean Note — might launch as the U Ultra — will feature a glass back, a front-facing fingerprint scanner, and a secondary display above the main one, which we have already seen on LG’s V series of smartphones. The images also show that the device won’t have the 3.5mm headphone jack and will come in a few different colors including blue and silver.


Unfortunately, specifications of the HTC Ocean Note are currently still unknown. There are some rumors going around claiming that the device might sport a 6-inch QHD display, the Snapdragon 835 chipset, and 4 GB of RAM, but they obviously haven’t been confirmed yet. All will be revealed tomorrow when HTC’s phablet will finally see the light of day.

In addition to the Ocean Note, the company is also expected to announce a few more smartphones tomorrow. Rumors have it that HTC will reveal the mid-range X10, the successor to the last year’s X9, as well as another device called the U Play.
