HTC invites press conference to launch a new product on January 12

HTC has been working hard to reclaim its ground it has lost to Apple, Samsung and LG in the smartphone market. This year’s HTC 10 is a good smartphone, but the device has failed to spark customers enthusiasm. HTC 10 sales are way below expectations, as HTC has been struggling to reach one million units in total sales this year.

HTC is obviously planning something special to turn things around next year. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has started sending out media invites for its big event on January 12 where the Company is said to launch the rumored HTC X10, but HTC has not given any details about its upcoming smartphone.

It is worth noting that January 12 comes after CES 2017 and before Mobile World Congress, where big brands show off its new products and high-techs. According to sources, the Taiwanese smartphone maker might launch a new smartphone that could work perfectly with its virtual reality Vive, but the device will belong to mid-range segment. Earlier this month, HTC announced Vive Studios, a new branch of the consumer electronics that works on expanding HTC’s virtual reality content in multiple categories including education, design, sports and things cinematic.

The new smartphone could be HTC’s next step in the race to VR dominance, along with rivals like Facebook’s Oculus, Samsung and Sony. The upcoming HTC X10 is believed to come with a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920) display. Under the hood, the new device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor along with 3GB of RAM and Mali-T860 GPU. In terms of camera, the new device might sport a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization.

Other rumors also tip that HTC may be working on HTC 11, the successor to this year’s HTC 10. HTC 11 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch QHD display and run Android 7.0 Nougat at launch. Besides, the new device is also believed to sport a dual-camera system of 12-megapixel at the back while an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. If you are expecting something special from HTC, you just need to wait until January 12 to find out more.
