Finally HTC may announce its 2017 flagship smartphone on March 20 
HTC is teasing an announcement for Monday where the company could unveil its flagship HTC 11 Smartphone. The company could also unveil its mid-range One X10 with MediaTek processor.

In April of last year, HTC officially announced its flagship for the year, the HTC 10. Now, the company may be gearing up to reveal its successor.

As initially reported by TechRadar, HTC took to its Taiwan Facebook page to tease Spring is Coming along with a vague “HTC will give you an unexpected surprise.” It points to a big reveal for March 20, which is right around the corner.

The teaser image doesn’t include any other details, unsurprisingly, but the running theory at this point is that HTC plans on unveiling the “HTC 11,” the successor to last years flagship smartphone.

HTC actually unveiled a flagship phone earlier this year with the U Ultra, but the manufacturer has not kept it a secret that it always planned on launching another premiere smartphone this year, more than likely running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood.



HTC could announce its 2017 flagship smartphone, the HTC 11, at an event on March 20. A teaser image posted on HTC Taiwan's Facebook page hints at an "unexpected surprise" from the company.


What will the HTC 11 be called?
There's a bunch of stories on the web right now suggesting there won't be an HTC 11. So let's clear that up: the phone that was previously been rumoured to launch as the HTC 11 will still launch, but it simply won't be called the HTC 11. HTC is shaking up its naming system.
President of smartphone and connected devices business, Chialin Chang, has confirmed to Engadget that the HTC 11 will be announced but that it will go under a new name.
It's possible that the HTC 11 will be renamed as the HTC U or HTC U Vive. The HTC U family unveiled on 12 January is now the company's premiere smartphone series, according to HTC. It includes an HTC U Ultra, also known as the HTC Ocean Note, while the HTC 11 expected at MWC is known as the HTC Ocean. This suggests the U Ultra is the phablet of that line-up, the U Play the mid-range model and the HTC 11 (HTC U?) could be the flagship. It could even be known as the HTC U Vive, following a recent video leak that showed an unknown phone with Vive branding (see below).
