HTC U Play with 5.2-inch display could be unveiled alongside HTC U Ultra phablet
HTC has already confirmed a launch event for January 12, right after CES 2017. Even though the Taiwanese company didn't disclose any details regarding the products that will be unveiled next week, we've learned that two or three smartphones might be announced at the event.
One of the most recent reports claims HTC will announced three phones with the following code names: HTC Alpine, HTC Ocean Note and HTC X10.
We believe the company's flagship smartphone will be the HTC Ocean Note, which is suppose to be released on the market as HTC U Ultra. The other two devices, HTC Alpine and HTC X10 (or HTC One X10) are just mid-range smartphones that will make their debut in Q1.
Now a new report coming from the same unverified source who let it slip that HTC U Ultra boasts a huge 6-inch display, but no 3.5mm audio jack, offers us new details about another one of these three upcoming HTC smartphones.
Apparently, the HTC Alpine sports a 5.2-inch display and will be launched on the market as HTC U Play. It will probably be the HTC U Ultra's smaller brother, so it's expected to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack as well.
The third HTC handset to be unveiled in Q1, the One X10 is said to be a refreshed version of the One X9 with only a few improvements. The upcoming phone is expected to pack a 5.5-inch full HD display and a octa-core MediaTek chipset inside.
