There have been quite a few rumors going around about the HTC Ocean. Smartphone enthusiasts have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Ocean. The general public had a glimpse of the concept a few months ago in a video below.
The phone in the video has no physical buttons and a Sense Touch UI which rely on gestures and Google Assistant to navigate.
Shortly after the video was released Twitter user LlabTooFeR stated that there will be three variations of the phone. The three variations will be Ocean Master, Ocean Note, and Ocean Smart.
The Taiwanese website ePrice has confirmed that rumor when they stated that they had received information which confirms those three devices. ePrice states that the three devices will be announced on January 12.
The same date that HTC has set for an event called ‘For U’ and they stated that the devices will go on sale on January 24. That’s great news for HTC because that means that HTC will be the first major smartphone manufacturer to launch their phones in 2017.
The specs of these devices are still unknown to the general public. So far we know that there will be two different variations of the Note, one with 64GB of internal storage and one with 128GB.
The Master and the Smart are the other two phones in the Ocean series and they are expected to be the main version of the phone. The specs for these devices have not yet been revealed. However, it’s likely that the phones will come with a Snapdragon 835 processor.
There’s a little over two weeks to go until the HTC’s ‘For U’ event. How will the HTC Ocean stack up against the stiff competition that will be coming in 2017? Please let me know your thoughts about this in the comment section below.
