Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC has shared a recent progress on their social media page on Facebook that reportedly hints about a possible new smartphone from High Tech Corporation. The following message picked up enormous momentum, with almost all news media sources claiming it to be the upcoming HTC 11 that will succeed their predecessor, the HTC 10.

HTC 10 was undoubtedly one of the best comebacks from the manufacturer themselves after a series of their smartphones in the previous years failing to make their mark in the markets. As the topic continues to pick up pace, rumors believe that the HTC 11 will be unveiled around the same time as the HTC 10.

Reports from BGR hint that Mar. 20 would be a suitable launch day for the new smartphone since all previous HTC flagships have achieved a similar date for their product launches with a difference of around 10-15 days. That said, HTC 11 might not even be the final name of the new HTC flagship that people are waiting for.

This is likely due to the fact that the manufacturer is rather planning to name it in such a way that suits their virtual reality 'Vive' franchise that would hint about a possible combination with the HTC Vive, making it a dedicated VR compatible flagship. Among other rumors, there is a possibility that HTC might actually announce the successor to the HTC Vive that's still being sold on a regular basis without any troubles.

Sources from PC Advisor believes that HTC 11 launch is inevitable even if it meant about its absence at the Mobile World Congress this year. The report alleges that HTC will apparently move to a new naming scheme and the same has somehow been confirmed by one of HTC's representatives in a statement to Engadget.

The report hints that HTC 11 might be renamed to either HTC U Vive for the aforementioned reasons and will also have the same insane price-tag that apparently no one has understood about its illogical pricing. There might be possible delays for the new flagship since Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 is currently exclusive to Samsung's Galaxy S8 smartphones until some time.  With that said, the new HTC smartphone might not come with anything lesser than 4GB of memory.
