Code names for the three upcoming new HTC phones are leaked?
HTC is expected to unveil three new handsets over the next three months. We believe that this trio will include a new flagship aptly named the HTC 11, a new mid-range model that will be given the HTC One X10 moniker, and a rumored 6-inch phablet dubbed the HTC U Ultra. The latter seems poised for an unveiling on January 12th according to an invitation that we received. A tweet from Evan Blass calls for a first quarter release of the HTC One X10, and the HTC 11 could be unveiled late in the first quarter.

According to a tweet sent today from ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, who is known for his leaks involving HTC, the One X10 is code named the HTC Alpine, while the HTC 11 is the HTC E66. As we've already noted a week ago, the HTC U Ultra has a code name of  HTC Ocean Note.

The HTC U Ultra is rumored to have a 6-inch screen and will sport a Type-C USB port. The phablet will not carry a 3.5mm earphone jack, but will be available in Black, White and Blue. The HTC One X10 is said to feature a 5.5-inch screen. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6755 SoC with an octa-core 1.9GHz CPU, and the Mali T860 GPU. The rear camera weighs in at 16.3MP with a front facing 7.9MP snapper. 2017 flagship-type specs are expected for the HTC 11. That means a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The recently unveiled Snapdragon 835 chipset will be powering the phone.

Can any of these devices help turn around HTC? Last year it produced its strongest flagship phone in some time with the HTC 10, although that didn't help the company's standing in the industry in 2016.

HTC always makes amazing phones, but they always lack some important feature(s). If the HTC 10 was waterproof, it would've been amazing and I definitely would have bought it. But that's a huge feature that a lot of phones have now that HTC just didn't include. If HTC will make this year's flagship waterproof along with its normal awesome design and software, it should be a hit.

The important feature that you are alluding to is Marketing. It does not matter what features the phone has and/or doesn't have, if it is marketed enough it will sell.

That is another huge problem for HTC, their marketing sucks.

While Marketing is a huge issue for HTC - They could spend $10000000000000000 on marketing but many many people are just going to keep buying the brand names they know work and how to use. They know Samsung and they know Apple so they keep buying those. I think for HTC to really have successfully marketed smartphone it needs to be a successfully marketed company and it just doesn't have the name right now.

Even without seeing the phones I can already tell that the HTC trio will be duds on arrival tbh. Wonder whatever happened to the HTC we all knew and loved.. At least LG and lenovo are trying. Even staples like build quality and speakers are being beaten left right and center by mid range phones now. Selling the company should seriously be on the cards now.

From this article: "The phablet will not carry a 3.5mm earphone jack". Sounds like HTC's setting sail for fail, and it's not even funny... Especially the huge backlash and controversy which the removall of the 3.5mm jack has spakled recently!

If the HTC U Ultra brings with it flagship specs and some interesting features, it's possible that it could be a seller for HTC. There are a lot of people feeling the void left by the Note 7 and with Samsung waiting until April to introduce the S8, there is 4 months here that HTC can capitalize off of. It will depend on if this Ocean concept is truly revolutionary or not.

5.5" screen is the smallest size? Sad face. I like my HTC 10, but I couldn't go any larger. Samsung has done large screened devices right. The curved screen helps keep the device size small, relative to screen size.
