No, HTC will not present a new flagship at MWC 2018

No, HTC will not present a new flagship at MWC 2018
So, the Mobile World Congress is a pretty big thing — a superevent where most companies, big or small, go to present their latest products. From eccentric KickStarter accessories to the most popular (Android) smartphones — the show floor is flooded with conversation-starting gadgets.

Usually, a lot of device announcements happen on the first day of MWC as well, so that the eventgoers can spend the next few days checking out the brand-new phones out there. But if you happen to be expecting to see the next top-shelf HTC phone be unveiled — you shouldn't hold your breath.

Now, this should be no news to anyone who follows the company — ever since the HTC 10, HTC has been steering away from the MWC carfuffle and has been announcing its flagships at its own, separate events about a month after the Congress has passed. But, some hopeful rumor-weavers have been insisting that the HTC 12 (or however the company decides to call its 2018 flagship) will be shown at MWC 2018.

According to Android Headlines, an HTC insider has confirmed that this is not the case. The company will skip any major announcements through the month of February and will host its own event after MWC has passed. No event was given, and the source remains anonymous. Still, seeing HTC's release patterns over the past couple of years, and keeping in mind that the U11+ just launched 2 months ago, it's not hard to believe this information.

Anyone waiting at the edge of their seats to see what HTC does next?

Will the U11+ just got released so no new flagship is expected anytime soon.

Lack of front speakers and jack are killing sales.

Hope they get back to sober mind and stop releasing cheesy looking devices with no 3.5 mm jack and cheap build quality.

I hope HTC puts out a good phone this year because I am not buying another Samsung. I've held onto this Galaxy S8 since it came out and I've certainly had my good days and bad days with it (...mostly bad). I'm convinced no one dresses up a phone better than Samsung, but day to day performance is not their strong suit.

I'm so disappointed that Verizon didn't bring the HTC U11+ on board. I wanted that thing bad.
