Although going throw some hard times, HTC doesn’t want to leave the mobile market and, after announcing the high-specced Snapdragon 821-powered HTC U Ultra a few weeks back, we already know the Taiwan based phone maker will announce a new flagship equipped with the latest Snapdragon 835 in 2017.
Chialin Chang, HTC’s President of Global Sales, broke the news in an interview with Tbreak. He said that HTC will be launching a Snapdragon 835 equipped smartphone, but we’ll to wait until after MWC that takes place from Feb 27 to March 2.

Chang also claims that we won’t see any smartphones powered by Snapdragon 835 in Barcelona. Which would also confirm the fact that the Samsung S8 will be the first smartphone on the market with the latest Qualcomm’s CPU and set to launch in April.
Meanwhile, as already reported, LG’s G6 2017 flagship should be relying on last year’s Snapdragon 821 processor and get launched next month at MWC.
So, just like last year, next HTC’s flagship will be late to the party, but hopefully this time it’ll leave a mark.
