A hitherto unseen HTC phone, thought to be a successor to the Wildfire, has surfaced in a promo clip, as anticipation builds over the new additions to the phone maker’s product portfolio expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
Check out the clip below
The phone isn’t named in the video, which was posted on HTC’s official YouTube page. However, the fact that it has clearly taken more than a few design cues from the current-gen Wildfire suggests that it’s a sequel to the best-selling Android powered budget blower.
News of the Taiwanese company’s plans comes after it posted an MWC countdown on its Facebook page which alludes to the fact that “big things” are in store for tech watchers at the event.
This strongly indicates, to us at least, that we’re set for our first glimpse of HTC’s first-ever Android tablet - thought to be dubbed the Flyer. And we’d be very surprised too if there isn’t at least one major handset unveiled, most probably the rumoured HTC Desire 2.
A specific date for a showcase or keynote speech is as yet unconfirmed. But unofficial Facebook fanpage HTC Hub claims that Chief Executive Officer Peter Chou will be delivering an address on Tuesday February 15th at 10.30.
