HTC has been silent when it comes to new phones launched in recent times. It has only released a handful of phones and that too belonging to entry-level and mid-range segments. However, it is interested in entering the 5G segment by releasing relevant devices. A new report from ePrice, a Taiwanese publication, has claimed that an announcement is closer than before.
The report mentions that the first HTC 5G smartphone is likely to get official sometime in July. It adds that Chen Bayou, General Manager of HTC Taiwan, revealed in an interview that HTC will release 5G phones as soon as 5G networks will go live in the country. He did not offer any launch timeline but speculations point it to be around the month of July.
Even though we have seen brands release flagship as well as mid-range 5G devices, HTC is reported to enter the market with a flagship offering. It is added that even if the phone is not a true Android flagship, it will at least have high-end specifications that will make it a premium device. However, the report does not mention the source or reason behind the speculations which is the reason we would suggest you take these with a grain of salt.
In other news, HTC is also working on releasing its first-ever truly wireless earphones. These are said to be named HTC U Ear and as per leaked images, they look exactly like Apple AirPods but in Black color. This is not the first time we are seeing a brand copying the design introduced by Apple.
