Got it from an unverified source but I put that here anyway… 😏#HTC Ocean Note = HTC U Ultra = 6" display = no 3.5mm Jack…

Apart from this, there’s no information about HTC’s next flagship. Also, @OnLeaks notes that this information should be taken with a pinch of salt as the rumor comes from an unverified source. Having said, the recent rumor is in line with an official company teaser, which shows the alphabet ‘U’ in the middle.
The Taiwanese manufacturer has confirmed a major launch event called something “for U” in mid-January where it might unveil its next flagship. Some reports also claim that HTC might launch the recently leaked HTC X10 smartphone at the January 12 event.
While a recent report also claimed that HTC plans to announce three new smartphones in Q1 2017. The report further notes that apart from the next flagship smartphone from the company, the Taiwanese manufacturer will also announce two affordable handsets in Q1 2017.
In other related news, HTC has officially confirmed that it has no plans to announce the HTC Vive 2 at the upcoming CES 2017, contrary to earlier reports that claimed that the headset will be unveiled at the show.
The company said in statement that it’ll continue to focus more on the virtual reality ecosystem for its Vive VR headset, for current and future Vive users. The company has a press event scheduled at CES 2017 titled ‘the future VR’.
