At CES 2018 there were no loud announcements of smartphones, and even at the World Mobile Congress, manufacturers are in no hurry to show a new generation of flagships. Following the rumors from the camp of Huawei and LG, insiders said that the top-end device HTC will also miss MWC 2018.
In fact, HTC has been showing only budget employees and mid-level models in Barcelona for several years. After 2015, when the company brought the long-suffering HTC One M9 to the Mobile World Congress, separate events were held for the presentation of the flagships.
Perhaps HTC also does not want to get lost on the background of Samsung. The Korean giant has already announced its press conference within the MWC 2018, after which the attention of the public will be riveted to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +.
The flagship HTC U12 (the most likely name for the smartphone) will be presented in March-April 2018. The smartphone is credited with a top-end Snapdragon 845 chipset, an extended display with 4K resolution and thin frames, a double camera and a glass and metal housing with IP68 water protection.
At MWC 2018 is expected the premiere of the frameless flagship Sony , the long-awaited Nokia 9 and Xiaomi Mi 7 (although the Chinese can limit themselves to the announcement of the Mi 6X )
