HTC codenamed its 2017 phones with the Ocean moniker, and the HTC U Ultra was the Ocean Note, the U Play was Ocean Smart, and the U11 was just Ocean. There have been leaks about an Ocean Master before, which we thought is the U11, but it turns out that it might be a different, and upcoming handset, if a tip from the Chinese tech blogosphere is to be believed. It comes from and HTC community member there, so the leak might turn out credible, after all.
Apparently, HTC is readying three more handsets to choose from, dubbed Ocean Harmony, Lite, and the aforementioned Master. The Harmony and the Master would apparently both sport 6" displays, but the Harmony is listed with 4GB/64GB memory, while the Master adds a 6GB/128GB option. The next thing we learn about the Ocean Master is that it could sport a 12 MP rear camera, and an 8 MP selfie shooter. This is a different setup from the 5.5" U11 or the 5.7" U Ultra, which has a 16MP frontal camera.
Last but maybe not least, the Ocean Lite would eventually sport a more modest 5.2" form factor, and yet be stuffed with 4GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage, so it won't be an entry level phone, to say the least. As for when can we expect those to be released - HTC is apparently readying them for the holiday shopping season, with the Ocean Master and Ocean Lite slated for November unveiling, while the Harmony is rumored to land around Christmas. Hopefully, there will be more info about the trio until then, as this would make HTC the last major phone maker to release phones this year, and it might steal some thunder from the big boys.
