HTC Teases MWC Announcements on Facebook

Oh HTC, so clever on your little Facebook page. What does “5” mean? Well, Mobile World Congress starts in exactly 5 days. The world is fully expecting HTC to announce at least 3 (maybe even 4) devices at the conference including the One X, One S and One V. The One X as you know used to fall under the codename Endeavor and is their first Tegra 3 quad-core device. The One V (formerly the Ville) could very well end up as the world’s first Snapdragon S4 phone, something that even as a dual-core chipset, will hold its own for a long time.

After a disastrous 2011, HTC is looking to make a huge splash at MWC and set the the stage for 2012. They have some work to do if they are going to rise back up in the Android ranks, but with the rumors and buzz flying about as we approach this weekend, they certainly have a chance.

The quote “This Sunday you’ll discover something fast.” was included with the photo.

    Batery battery battery, until they fix this problem they are going to always have problems, no one wants a phone that lasts 45 minutes, & on a 5″ inch screen if they are using the same battery design then or phone wil last 20 minutes tops..lol / On a more serious note HTC needs to address its battery performance and design, they make some great phones just crappy batteries..

    I love my Rezound, everything looks grreat on that HD screen.  I like Sense and the way that it integrates my contacts from the phonebook, skype, facebook, and my different emails.  I also like the variety of very useful widgets included with Sense, everything seems connected and seamless.  Oh, and I really don’t see what everyone is talking about Sense causing the phone to be slow or bloatware.  My Rezound is quick as hell, instantly responsive to my inputs.  I can’t wait to see what new stuff HTC comes out with.

    I think HTC makes the most thoughtful products on the market and while Sense is considered bloatware by some, I think it’s very attractive and makes Android a pleasure to use.  

    To each his own.

    I hope they announce some sweet devices because htc is the only android OEM I’ll f*ck with…my nexus s 4G has horrible reception so no thanks to Samsung and Motorola is just flat out a joke

  • Staticx57

    All these HTC superphones while Moto will just bring out the Droid 5 which is will be just a small upgrade. laughable

  • xFenixKnightx

    Disastrous? It wasn’t great but not disastrous. lol

  • mustbepbs

    Honestly, if it wasn’t for the Nexus, I’d still be on my Rezound. The only reason I returned my Rezound for the GNEX was the community and updates. The Rezound is by and large a better phone than the GNEX. I really want to see HTC soar this year. I want an HTC as my next phone. I just really hope that they get to make another Nexus device.

    And now that they are holding true to unlockable bootloaders, HTC will be unstoppable. They make quality phones and care about their customers, something that all of the other OEMs fail to do, especially Motorola.

      I wanted to go with the Nexus but it was too big for me. Being short, i’d look like i’d be walking around with a Tablet. 

      • TC Infantino

        I gotta ask how short you are. Because if the Nexus looks like a tablet in your hands I can’t imagine anything bigger than a small flip phone being the right size for you.

    So excited to see what improvements Sense 4.0 brings to Android 4.0 :D

    • ph0oky

      Sarcasm?

      • LaCokaNostra

        Why would I be sarcastic about that? HTC continues to push the envelope with their upgrades to android

        • Josh Groff

          Some people don’t like the software integration and 3D effects, I for one love HTC, and when I want speed, I’ll swap to an AOSP/CM build.

          not sure if serious..

  • BroRob

    Please Please Please be the Thunderbolt 2!!! lawlz

  • Jeff Tycz

    maybe the 5 means another phone with a 5″ display?

  • ddevito

    Despite their lackluster 2011 it’s hard to not like HTC. 

  • Michael Forte

    So we’re supposed to look forward to the same tired design, and the same bloated Sense because of the S4? Nah, I’ll pass.

    For a second I thought you were talking about WMC… Winter Music Conference hmph 

  • Droidzilla

    Let me guess: a phone that looks like the Droid Incredible and runs a crummy Qualcomm processor with an SLCD screen?

    I kid, HTC; I still love you guys. But for serious, hop on the pretty phone with a sAMOLED bus. If not for the fans, do it for the children.

    • http://twitter.com/GRZLA Grizzly Atoms

      I have an AMOLED Droid Incredible, and the screen on it is AMAZING. It is now my toilet internet browsing device. 

      • Droidzilla

        I wish they wouldn’t have dropped the OLED screen on the DInc, but it was a supply problem (Sammy might be squeezing other manufacturers). I really want to like (desensed) HTC devices, but I question their form factors, screens, and chipsets. I gues I just like how they can play to the Android dev community and their radios aren’t as crappy as Samsung’s.

        • Travisjshepherd

          I’m not seeing any radio problems on my g-nex. speaking of “radios” does anyone know if the G-Nex is FM capable?

          • http://twitter.com/QSMinSD Q

            no

        • Josh Groff

          I will gladly sacrifice a high def screen. Being someone who has to wear glasses to see life in “high def” as opposed to blur, the difference is much more minor than the difference my glasses make. Plus it allows them to spend extra on the internals and customer service. (a much more noticeable bonus)

          • Droidzilla

            Not high-def; OLED. HTC already has an HD screen, but it’s SLCD. sAMOLED is now a prerequisite for a new phone for me (along with 4G and at least dual core).

          • Josh Groff

            After having a Zune HD’s AMOLED screen go all white screen of death on me, not sure I’m willing to accept the technology.

          • Droidzilla

            By that logic, you shouldn’t accept anything since every technology has examples that have failed.

          • Josh Groff

            Good point. ;)

  • master94

    Good luck HTC, cant wait to see what your offering.

    • Josh Groff
