Yup -- the Taiwanese phone maker has confirmed that it will indeed be planning to launch a squeezable smartphone offering called the U. When you think of the term “squeezable,” images of something rubbery may come to mind, but HTC’s upcoming device is actually more high tech than that.
HTC recently took the opportunity to announce via a post on Twitter that it is reducing the price of its U Ultra smartphone from $749 to just $599. That new pricing represents a whopping $150 drop from the original cost.
Fresh from relaunching its unlimited data option, Verizon Wireless is now taking full advantage of the momentum to introduce a new trade in deal targeted to those looking to sign up for its Verizon Unlimited plan for the first time.
A user of the Weibo mobile chat app has posted an alleged screenshot of the settings menu of HTC’s upcoming smartphone, the HTC 11, and it appears that the Taiwan based phone maker’s latest handset offering will be taking full advantage of the capabilities of Qualcomm’s newest and mightiest chip, the Snapdragon 835.
For those worried about the One series of smartphone devices biting the dust now that HTC has unveiled its new U lineup of handsets, rest assured that the Taiwanese phone maker has promised not to discontinue releasing One branded devices. But just to be clear about all of this -- the U series is now the new flagship devices from now on.
To start the new year, HTC is planning to unveil something important. Just this week, the Taiwanese phone maker started sending out invitations to the press for an event scheduled on January 12th next year.
Cliff Maldonado of analytics firm BayStreet Research is predicting that HTC will probably not release a new flagship smartphone offering in 2017 in the United States mobile market, especially across all four major US wireless carriers (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint).
Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
HTC has joined forces with major US wireless carrier Sprint in releasing its newest high end smartphone offering, the Bolt. At a price of $599 (or $25 a month over a period of a couple of years), the HTC Bolt is actually being offered as a Sprint exclusive, and will be arriving in the carrier’s outlets starting this weekend.
