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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
