HTC is getting the world hyped up for its latest product reveal with a newly posted teaser video. The clip has the theme of the event being “all about U” and it says it will begin on Thursday, January 12 beginning at 3 a.m. Eastern time (midnight Pacific time). The company will, of course, be live streaming that even for everyone on the Internet to check out.
The odd timing of the event is because HTC is actually making it in its home country of Taiwan, rather than holding a press conference in the States. There are already a number of rumors about what could be revealed at the “for U” event. It’s possible that it could be the announcement of a new phablet-style smartphone, with the code name “Ocean Note”, which might get the official title of the HTC U Ultra. Ironically, images of that reported phone were posted on a Chinese Weibo account today, which show a secondary ticker-style display on top, similar to what is on the rival LG V10 handset, and the recently launched LG V20 phone.
The livestreamed event might also have the company officially reveal a new mid-range phone, the HTC X10, which if true would be a successor to the current x9. The company might also reveal another phone, which might have the name the HTC U Play, at the event.
Again, all of this is just speculation, and we don’t have long to wait before we get all the official news. What do you think HTC could reveal on January 12? Give us your thoughts and speculations in the comments!
