Rapid fire: rumor mill says HTC is prepping to launch 3 smartphones within the next 3 months


About three months ago, we heard about HTC's Ocean concept — a code name for a new family of sleek, buttonless smartphones. Reportedly, the prototypes are called Ocean Master, Ocean Note, and Ocean Smart, and one of the three is supposedly HTC's next flagship, while the others could fall in any category (could the Note one fill a certain hot niche?).

Now, a rumor coming from Chinese website Eprice states that the company is getting ready to launch three new smartphones in the first quarter of 2017. According to the leak, we might see the alleged Ocean Note be announced first — on the 12th of January. Whether the other two smartphones will be unveiled on the same date or later is unknown. It's also not certain if they will be of the Ocean family — after all, we are expecting a new HTC X10 to hit at some point early next year, too.

About a week ago, we did get a teaser for a mystery announcement on the 12th of January straight from HTC, but there's not much to go on. All the announcement said was “for U”, with the date written below.

So... how do you feel about an HTC Note? Yeah, maybe getting another stylus-equipped Android flagship, especially from HTC, is a bit far-fetched, but hey — it doesn't hurt to dream!
