HTC could be working on a flagship with 5G support
HTC’s mobile division could be set to go out of business soon but it would seem that the company plans on sticking around for just a tad longer. According to reports, the Taiwanese OEM is working on yet another flagship, and one that will be powered by the next-gen Snapdragon 855.
HTC’s current flagship, the U12+, was released back in May. Earlier in the year, the company was reported to have been dedicated to producing only one flagship this year, perhaps in a bid to mitigate possible losses. Sadly, the U12+, like all recent HTC flagships, failed to do much commercially, so the company will be looking to have another go at redemption next year with this touted flagship.
The device, possibly the U13+, will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 and will have 5G capabilities. 5G is quickly becoming the new development in the market, with Motorola’s Moto Z3 and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 featuring different takes on the technology. According to the source, the 7nm Snapdragon 855 will have an inbuilt 5G modem, although that modem may be just an option on a premium SKU of the SoC.
