HTC has been having issues. Earlier this year the company lost so much value it was basically worthless and now they’ve been dropped from Taiwan’s top 50 index. This was on the back back of the failure of the One M9 to attract customers and and a tepid response to their low and medium tier phones. But the once proud tech giant is looking to get back on its feet with the launch of two new flagship devices, according to a new leak.
On Twitter, upleaks, who appears to be plugged in to all things HTC, leaked a press invite pulled from HTC’s Weibo account. The invite states that on September 29th, the Taiwanese smartphone and tablet maker will release two new devices. A translation states that “double flagship new machine will be released in Hakone, Japan” on September 29th.
There’s long been rumors of a new HTC One A9 or Aero device that has yet to surface and the Butterfly line that hasn’t received a flagship update this year. These two options could go a long way to boosting sales in Asia but with the Apple iPhone, Samsung Note and S6 Edge+, Moto X line and Nexus line all releasing in the last 3 months of the year, it might be difficult for HTC to gain any momentum in 2015 here in the States.
What do we know about about the Aero (or One A9) so far? Not much. It’s been spectulated that we’ll see a 5.2″ quad-HD display with 4 gigs of ram and a 3,500 mAh battery being powered by a MediaTek chip but nothing concrete has come out yet.
Do you think HTC can rebound or are they doomed? Let us know in the comments where you see the future of the once largest Android OEM going.
