HTC ‘Save the Date’ Invite Surfaces for next Flagship

January 27, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

HTC hasn’t yet sent out invites or announced a date for their Mobile World Congress press conference – in fact we aren’t even sure they are having one. Many reports have said that HTC will not be releasing their flagship One M10 at the event in Barcelona next month. While some reports have said that the One M10 will have a design pretty similar to the One A9 announced last fall. Now, thanks to a known-leaker – no not Evleaks – it looks like HTC’s invite for the One M10 may have just leaked out.

This same leaker, who goes by the Twitter handle @Ricciolo1, leaked out an image of Samsung Unpacked for Barcelona back in November. And said that there would be no early announcement, so far he’s been spot on. This invite, however does not have any dates on it, or times. But if the picture is anything to read into, we might be having an event in London this time around. HTC isn’t a company that typically announces flagships in London. This means that we have no clue as to what date this event will take place on. But we should be getting invites to the event as we get closer to it, if it’s actually happening. However, @Ricciolo1 did also mention that this event will be in multiple cities. And that it will have a flagship as well as a surprise. HTC hasn’t done a flagship launch in multiple cities for quite some time, dating back to the One M8 actually. Where they held an event in London and New York City simultaneously.

The Taiwanese company, HTC, had a pretty rough 2015. Seeing sales decline even more with each quarter. While HTC has been focusing on other businesses like Virtual Reality, smartphones and mobile is still their bread and butter. And something that they will continue to work on. HTC is hoping that the One M10 will start a comeback for them, after the mediocre response they got from the One M9 last year at Mobile World Congress. As mentioned above, HTC hasn’t made their MWC plans public yet. So we could be looking at a press conference in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, or it could be a separate event that is not around the end of February.
