HTC is one of the first manufacturers to introduce dual cameras on a smartphone. There’s the HTC One M8 and if you want to go further, they also had the EVO 3D which can capture video and stills in 3D with its dual-camera setup.
While the competition had jumped on the dual-camera bandwagon, HTC has stuck with having a single camera for the rear since the HTC 10. According to its former president, HTC will be releasing dual-camera smartphones in 2018 but they will need to figure out how to make it stand out from the rest.
According to this new leak, it looks like HTC has finally nailed it and the new dual-camera flagship could be announced in April this year.
During a Taiwan 5G showcase event, a HTC smartphone was spotted with a thick case and has its forehead and chin covered. The device was used to showcase HTC’s gigabit LTE capabilities using Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA). This is a form of carrier aggregation that uses the unlicensed 5GHz spectrum that’s also being utilised by WiFi.
What’s interesting is the device is different from the current U11 and U11+, and serial leakster @evleaks has indicated that this is HTC’s upcoming flagship model.
