One could be forgiven for completely forgetting about HTC. The Taiwanese company's mobile division has been in quite the quagmire and looks certain to not even release a flagship phone this year. The company has something in the works, though, and we'll be getting it this week.

HTC's mobile division has suffered from numerous losses over the past two years, leading to the company selling off most of its assets to Google in an effort to focus on its Vive branch. Uncharacteristically, the company hasn't released a flagship this year and apparently doesn't plan on doing so either. However, recent information has confirmed that the Taiwanese company will launch a new device next week.

The device's is currently unconfirmed but it could be sold as the HTC U19e. It's expected to be mid-range offering. Going by word on the grapevine, it will sport a 6-inch FHD+ display. It could be powered by a Snapdragon 710 and could feature 6 GB of RAM. Providing the phone with juice is expected to be a 3,930 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support keeping charge times down. 

We expect to see a dual camera setup on the back, and schematics have confirmed a dual selfie setup too. Four cameras in total. The phone is expected to have a "2Q7A100" model number and will launch on June 11.
