A member of the HTC community, Corn Chen has revealed the codenames and features of three other devices set to be released before the end of 2017. The three phones are Ocean Master, Ocean Harmony, and Ocean Lite.

Ocean Master is said to be a 6-inch device with 12MP and 8MP cameras. It will also come in two configurations – a 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant and a 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM model.

Ocean Lite and Ocean Harmony on the other hand will both have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. However, Lite will have a 5.2-inch display and Harmony will keep the 6-inch screen size.

According to him, Ocean Master and Ocean Lite may be announced in November and Ocean Harmony will be announced in December.

That’s not all Corn Chen revealed. A few days ago, he also posted a picture on Twitter that revealed the design and name of HTC’s standalone VR headset.
