HTC sends out video teaser to tell you about the live stream for Thursday's event

We've already told you that HTC will be holding an event on January 12th. Today, the manufacturer released a 10-second video that is titled "It is all about U." The clip promotes the live stream for the event, which will take place at 11am EST/10am CST/9am MT/8am PT this coming Thursday. We expect to see the 6-inch HTC U Ultra phablet introduced along with the HTC U Play. The latter is a smaller model featuring a 5.2-inch screen.
While HTC has hit paydirt with its high end VR system, the HTC Vive, the company is still failing to make any waves in the smartphone industry despite producing its best flagship model ever with the HTC 10. But HTC has always had issues with marketing its smartphones, and shelling out $12 million for Robert Downey Jr. to star in a commercial back in 2013 didn't turn things around in that department.
While there have been rumors about the specs of the two phones, and pictures allegedly of the HTC U Ultra have leaked, we are just two days away from the event that will introduce HTC's new handsets. If you need to be reminded about the event and the live feed, click on the video at the top of this story.

Take your s**t somewhere else. Have you ever owned an HTC device?

The M8 is easily amongst the top five smartphones I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Everything about it was just...solid. Despite what others say, I was able to take beautiful pictures with it. The depth sense tech looked natural in all of my photos, and it was incredible. Granted, I did have the Google Play Edition, so I mine had stock Android. But from what I've heard, HTC's Sense UI isn't bad at all. Unfortunately, I care about aesthetics as much as software, and both the M9 and 10 were too bland looking for my tastes. They just didn't have that unique look that the M8 had with its' dual camera setup. If they were to make a device that looked exactly like the M8 but with beefier specs, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Can't wait :) Go HTC! Still have a feeling that these won't be flagships though.

HTC may not stand up to flagship phones, but they are still nice phones. I really hope they have a good year.

my feelings too, otherwise these will be complete duds. I'm praying they're just another model and not flagships.
