A new HTC device was recently spotted in the Geekbench and AnTuTu databases. The device, which bears a model number 2Q7A100 seems to be powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC and is equipped with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage. Further details about the device and an expected launch date are elusive.

We've been expecting HTC to launch a few devices in 2019 and the first signs of it are already being seen. A mid-range HTC smartphone was spotted doing the rounds on Geekbench and AnTuTu. The model HTC 2Q7A100 seems to be powered a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage running Android 9.

The phone scored a score of 6979 in Geekbench's RenderScript test and 169617 points in the AnTuTu benchmark. Not much is known about this mysterious device apart from the fact that it will have a display resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The Snapdragon 710 is an excellent upper mid-range chipset but Qualcomm has already announced the Snapdragon 730 as its successor. HTC could have rather used the new chipset, but it is possible that this phone has been in development since quite some time.

HTC's journey so far has been riches to rags story. Revenues for the company have been tanking and the latest releases such as the U12 Plus haven't been able to really turn the tables despite being good devices in their own right.

There have been absolutely no leaked pictures or renders of this new HTC device so we do not expect an official launch anytime soon. Still, it is good to see HTC not completely giving up its efforts and we hope the company delivers well this year.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
