I am sure these are good days for the HTC fans as their favorite company is going to announce a couple of new smartphones on Jan 12th event. These smartphones will be announced as HTC U Ultra and HTC U-Play. A few days ago, we shared a promotional video of HTC Ocean and today we have a couple of leaked images showcasing the design of upcoming HTC Ocean Note device. From the look of things, it seems HTC is coming back in the smartphone industry with a big boom as they are bringing much needed major changes to wow customers.
It seems like HTC Ocean lineup devices will be competing against Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 lineup. However so far the majority of the leaks are regarding the HTC Ocean Note as it is expected to be a flagship Phablet from HTC.
A lot of info regarding HTC Ocean Note is been surfing around. If this device is not able to beat top flagship for sure it will compete them. The rumor mill is continuously indicating that HTC Ocean Note will be packed with dual camera setup and not just that it will be beating Pixel’s score at DxOmark. Not just that, HTC is expected to bring another similar change like Pixel’s lineup devices by bringing three color variants White, Black, and special Blue.
Last year, Apple brought a new trend by removing the 3.55mm headphone jack it seems HTC will follow this trend by removing 3.55mm headphone jack from Ocean Note smartphones. It looks like, in next couple of years, all accessories related to 3.55mm headphone jack will come to an end. As the promo of Ocean smartphone showcases an edge to edge display, we can expect similar for the Note variant as well. Today’s leak also confirms this aspect of design.
These leaked images are shared by anonymous leaks on slashleaks. As per leak, the device design is edge-to-edge. There is not a physical button on the front facing side, another good thing is pretty slim bezel. The display is blurred out which is quite a shame as we already know much about the device. As far as the announcement is a concern the device is rumored to be unveiled in next couple of days with a release in the first week of February.
Another highlighted feature about the Ocean Note will be its high-res audio capabilities. The latest top of the line Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 could be powering the handset with 8GB RAM and expected price tag will be $700.
HTC and their fans have high hopes for the new Ocean series. Samsung and LG seem like going to play safer this year but that’s not the case with Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC. What are your thoughts, do share them in the comments section below.
