HTC has an event on Thursday this week and is expected to unveil several new handsets in the midrange market, among them HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play, but neither is confirmed just yet.
The company is also expected to unveil an HTC Ocean flagship – a device that has already made an appearance in a series of leaked videos. But even before details of this supposed HTC 10 successor make it to the public’s eye, there is a new development where details of another HTC smartphone have been leaked as concept images. Apparently, the Taiwanese tech company has an HTC Quest Series in the making and if the latest details leaked via concept images are to be believed, the company has a monster smartphone in the works.
The HTC Quest Series has three variants – the HTC Storm, HTC Fury, and HTC Thunder, all of which have been leaked in the images. From the outside looks, these three are the same, but of course, there should be some differences to put them apart. For instance, the HTC Thunder has three capacitive buttons placed below the screen whereas HTC Fury and HTC Storm don’t have this design. You will enjoy the slim bezels around each phone, but HTC will still include front-facing speakers to ensure that audio listening is at its best.
The display screen should be 5.5 inches on all three phones, with the resolution staying at QHD AMOLED. This display screen will also be the new home for the phone’s fingerprint scanner and Gorilla Glass 6 will also prevent the screen from cracking or catching scratches. Even though the design of the three HTC Quest Series phones is slightly different, it appears that the trio will ship with the same specs under the hood. These include a Snapdragon 835 SoC that is paired with a huge RAM of 8GB and up to 256GB of internal storage. There will be a decent 3900mAh battery unit that supports Quick Charge 4.0 technology.
In terms of cameras, the leaked concept images claim that the HTC Quest Series will come with a 16MP snapper on the back that is supported by an 8MP snapper on the front. Interestingly, the OS on board will be Android 8.0, which is the next version after Android 7.0 Nougat. Since this OS is not expected until Q3 2017 or even Q4 2017, it is possible that these HTC Quest Series handsets could be meant for the second half of the year or even early 2018.
Be reminded that these are just concept phones and in fact, they may never come to life. Nonetheless, it is always interesting (and thrilling) to take a look at these concepts and their futuristic approaches to smartphones in general.
