HTC is finding it hard to survive in the high-end smartphone market as many Chinese manufacturers are eating its chunk by giving more advanced features. Now, it seems HTC is testing some other alternatives as a budget smartphone from the Taiwanese company has surfaced at WiFi Alliance. Last week, a new budget device model numbered HTC 2Q72XXX with Snapdragon 435 received Bluetooth certification, and now the same has hit WiFi Alliance.
HTC’s new budget smartphone will be certified for the 2.4 GHz b/g/n bands. It is expected to run on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Further, WIFi certification found that it runs on the Snapdragon 435 Soc with the octa-core processor with a maximum clock speed of 1.4 GHz.
A device bearing the same model number and specs has appeared on Geekbench a month ago, and if we correlate than it will come with 3 GB RAM. It scored 684 points on a single core test and hits 2585 with multi-core test.
Currently, no other detail has surfaced, even though HTC has not confirmed anything about it. At the moment there is relatively little known about the unannounced HTC smartphone. The smartphone will be unveiled this year, but it is also possible that it will be here in early 2019.
Now, HTC should price it somewhat similar to the devices present in the market. Otherwise, there are chances that it might not get much attention. We are looking for some more information about it and will let you guys know if any advancement happens.
