HTC's 5G smartphone appears in official documents, on track for H2 2019 release
Despite the fact that it sold its mobile division to Google, HTC will continue to produce smartphones. We haven't heard anything from the Taiwanese company yet, but reports about a potential 5G smartphone that HTC plans to release in the second half of the year emerged back in January.

Well, it looks like the report was quite accurate since the folks at AndroidSoul spotted an HTC smartphone at the Bluetooth Launch Studio, the entity that approves all unreleased devices that include Bluetooth support.

The HTC product with model number 2Q6U was listed on April 20. We do not believe it's a coincidence that leakster Evan Blass stated not long ago that HTC is already working on a 5G smartphone with the same model number.

The official documents filed at Bluetooth Launch Studio are just a confirmation to these rumors. Sadly, aside from the fact that it's working on a 5G smartphone, the listing doesn't reveal anything about the phone's specs.

Moreover, if HTC does indeed plan to launch its 5G smartphone in the second half of the year, it will face fierce competition in the US where Samsung and LG will introduce their 5G handsets as well.

Forget the headphone jack, a thing of the past. Use that space for something else like BATTERY And HTC are far from done lol, the U12+ was a beast phone that was just undermarketed. That'd HTC's ENTIRE downfall, they kept the "Quetly Brilliant" motto for too long because they didn't need to advertise before, everyone knew who they were back then... Now it's full of newcomers who only know Samsung because of... Advertising! HTC just needed to start earlier They're not done at all, especially with the Vive dominating the HMD market. They just need to learn to make a freaking commercial or 2! They're the true best smartphone company of the world
