New HTC smartphone announced on August 30: HTC shared in its official Twitter account information that on August 30 will be a presentation of a new smartphone. Most likely, this will happen at the IFA 2018 in Berlin.
This will not be a top-end device, as the company promised that it will only produce one flagship a year. Most likely, it will be a budget version of the flagship – HTC U12 Life. According to information leaks, the device will receive a 6-inch display with a modern aspect ratio of 18: 9 and FullHD + resolution. He will have a dual main camera, presumably with 13 + 5 Mp modules. The hardware platform will be the mid-budget eight-core chip Snapdragon 636.
The main competitor of the smartphone will be Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, running on the same processor. The device from Xiaomi costs around $ 180, and if HTC installs on its novelty a much higher price tag, then it will obviously be difficult for it to compete for the user. Recall that HTC recently loses its losses and reduces its staff. Analysts believe that this is due to the lack of uniqueness in the budget smartphones of the company and a high price tag.
