HTC is holding an event next week: What will it announce?

HTC hasn’t pushed out a major smartphone since the rather divisive HTC U12 Plus and Exodus 1 blockchain phone last year. But it looks like the veteran manufacturer has something up its sleeve for next week.

HTC has posted a picture on its Facebook page (seen in featured image), hyping an event taking place on June 11. Machine translation doesn’t give us any clues regarding the product category, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen an HTC smartphone.

GSMArena reckons that the Taiwanese manufacturer will launch a mid-range device, dubbed the HTC U19e, at the June 11 event. This phone purportedly appeared on Antutu and Geekbench, and is said to offer a Snapdragon 710 chipset and 6GB of RAM. A new mid-range phone is always welcome, but we hope HTC looks to Google, Huawei, Realme, and Xiaomi when it comes to value for money and specs.

What else could be on the cards?

The HTC U12 Plus.

A second possibility is that we’re looking at a follow-up to the U12 Plus. That would likely mean a Snapdragon 855 chipset, great photo quality, and the firm’s edge squeezing functionality. However, our own Jimmy Westenberg berated the 2018 model for its lackluster battery life, terrible power/volume buttons, and high price tag in his HTC U12 Plus review. So hopefully the company tackles these issues if we’re indeed looking at a follow-up.

The final phone-related possibility is that we’re looking at a follow-up to the HTC Exodus 1. The company reportedly confirmed that a successor was in the works for a 2019 release back in April, but we haven’t heard anything about this device since then.

HTC makes more than just smartphones though, so don’t be surprised if the company has new Vive VR products to show off. What would you like to see from the firm at its June 11 event? Let us know in the comments section!
