HTC has something new "for you", will announce it on January 12

HTC sent us an interesting invitation to an event that will take place on January 12 - that's several days after CES 2017 (one of the largest tech trade shows in the world) closes its gates.

The invitation - seen above - is pretty basic, merely revealing that HTC has something "for you." Notice that HTC logo (right bottom) has been turned 90 degrees so that the C in it makes a U. We're definitely intrigued.

While it's clear that HTC has a new product (or maybe multiple products) to announce, it's hard to guess what this could be all about.

Recently, we've been hearing about a mid-range HTC X10 smartphone that should be unveiled in January, though we're not convinced that HTC would organize a big event just for that. Maybe HTC is finally ready to showcase its first smartwatch? Or perhaps this is about VR (virtual reality)?

What we don't expect to see on January 12 is the HTC 11 (the successor to this year's HTC 10 flagship phone). Since the HTC 10 was announced in April 2016, the HTC 11 will likely not be unveiled before April 2017. Then again, for now, we can't be sure of anything, so we just have to wait and see what happens.

What do you think HTC is planning to announce come January 12?

I don't know what to think. I'm glad HTC is active but but they make many poor decisions LOL.

I am still using HTC One (M7). Best smartphone. Beats audio, battery durability, display, fast processor, and so on. The one and only problem of the device is the pink color problem of its camera. It takes photos and videos better than Olympus, Canon, Nicon cameras outside. But, in low-light situations its rear camera dies!! Unfortunately.......

So you are using the One M7 and it is the best phone with battery life????? I advise you to try the htc 10 and see how the battery life is! Your big failure 4 Ultrapixel rakes photos better than Canon or Nicon???????????? You are too much really. I had the One M7 and the ONLY reason that made me replace it is the very poor camera performance in any condition. Note my words: In Any Condition!!!!!

I had that phone and loved it but the decision to use the Snapdragon 600 instead of the 800 was a huge mistake and showed after using the phone for many months. I was lucky that during it's use, my camera did not become afflicted with the purple hue syndrome.
