With their sales dipping year after year, HTC might just call it quits in the Indian market. The company has been facing a bit of trouble across its global markets and are struggling to keep their sales figures up as well. In a recent report by the Economic Times, the resignation of Country Head Faisal Siddiqui, Sales Head Vijay Balachandran and Product Head R Nayyar has left the Indian arm of the company in dire straits. In a stunning move, the company has asked around 70 to 80 of its Indian employees to leave the company with only Chief Financial Officer Rajeev Tayal staying behind after the three key members’ resignation. Although the company could halt all Indian operations [...]

HTC last launched a flagship smartphone in late-November, the HTC U11+. Since then, Qualcomm has launched its new flagship chipset which is already present in a handful of smartphones like the Galaxy S9 (USA and South Korea), Mi MIX 2s, Sony Xperia XZ2 and more. HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the HTC U12+ is expected to have a few features not found on previous flagship HTC devices.
New leaked images of the HTC U12+ re-affirm previous rumours of a dual-camera setup on the back. HTC introduced the dual camera setup way back in 2012 with the HTC Evo 3D. Later on, the company launched the HTC M8 Eye, in 2014 with a dual camera setup albeit, a different [...]
HTC introduced the dual camera setup way back in 2012 with the HTC Evo 3D. Later on, the company launched the HTC M8 Eye, in 2014 with a dual camera setup albeit, a different implementation. However, HTC has since then shied away from using a dual-camera setup on its line of flagship smartphones even though companies like Apple, Samsung, OnePlus, LG etc have adopted the new trend of dual-camera setups. In early-2018, HTC did launch the HTC Desire 12+ with a dual-camera setup but, it was a budget smartphone with not a lot of global appeal. Now, it appears that HTC is ready to introduce a dual-camera setup on its flagship lineup with the HTC U12+, as suggested by a new leak. The HTC [...]
The HTC U12 is the upcoming flagship which is expected to launch in July 2018. A new leak from a case render has confirmed the design and aesthetics of the HTC U12.

The leak confirms that the smartphone has a Quad-camera solution. Two cameras on the front and two on back. However, whether it’ll have a telephoto lens or some other implementation is yet to be known. Additionally, the HTC U12 will have an 18:9 aspect ratio display without a notch. Similar to the HTC U11+, the smartphone does not have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Keeping in [...]
HTC will launch its next flagship smartphone in July of 2018. According to rumours, the company might directly launch the HTC U12+, instead of HTC U12. Now, people at Technobufallo have rendered what it might look.
Interestingly, the HTC U12+ renders look similar to the HTC U11+, which was launched in India in February 2018. The designer elements have been inspired by the U11+ with additional attributes to make it a class 2018 flagship smartphone. From the initial impression, the device has a glass front, glass back with a metal frame. Additionally, the device has an internal reflective surface, much like the HTC U11+. Considering the glass back, the smartphone is likely to [...]
