HTC to announce new flagship on March 25th

An HTC One launch event

HTC has begun sending invites to an event taking place simultaneously in London and New York on March 25th, avoiding Mobile World Congress, and therefore allowing the Samsung Galaxy S5 to take centre stage in Barcelona later this month.

The invite, as seen below, notes a 4pm GMT start. The flagship phone they are expected to announce will be a sequel to the HTC One, a phone that was lauded for its industrial design, as well as being one of the first devices to be available in a stock Android Google Play edition. According to recent leaks, it may include a vastly improved camera, a high end Snapdragon processor and a 5 inch screen, very much inline with direct competitors.

Despite recent financial troubles, HTC has said they are optimistic about this year, and want to focus on making the best smartphone possible with a mid-range lineup to compliment it. They are also tipped to be building Google's next Nexus tablet

Take a look at the invite below:

I couldn't wait until March as my contract ended in Jan and I needed a phone so I got the HTC One Max which is a cracking phone.

All in all, HTC needs to focus their time, energies, and resources to creating and developing great user experiences with totally unique features. That can only happen with Android and not Windows Phone. Windows Phone, at this stage, mobile game is clear out money loser for any company.

With Motorola offering voice controls, Samsung offering "kinect-like" features, perhaps HTC (to differentiate themselves from the others) should focus on.......cameras? HTC needs to be known for something, perhaps HQ picture taking will help the company's struggling smart phone business.

Isnt Sony doing that with its new Z line of phones. The camera features are amazing on these phones. Although, HTC new phones are awesome with sound though.

well if they keep on going with android they gonna find themselves bankrupt or sold to samsung; a bright future to look at for sure

nothing to do with lgs problem, with motorolas problem, with sony ericssons problem, with sonys problem and with htcs problem, yup

No, it does not as WP did not make Nokia more successful than HTC or Samsung. The whole experience make the difference, at least in the real World.

So I guess Nokia should be making billions from their phones huh? And WP should be saving HTC since they make WP devices.

Major issues with a lot of Android OEMs is lack of support, good reliable devices, or availability. Again, really nothing to do with what OS it is running on. Unless you are Black Berry.

Hype makes the difference, and people are drones and will go from brand A to B if they are told so by the media.
Samsung makes for a terrible hardware and user experience, yet they have all the current hype and people buys their devices because "everyone has a Samsung phone".
Well, that's what they are trying to make you believe in the first place smartass, and now you are one more cog into this hype machine.

Not really: in Europe for example Nokia has always been regarded as a great and reliable brand and in those Countries it is selling very well; in the US, where unless you bend to the carriers racket penetration is very difficult, was not hence market share is lower.
The time of the Fourth power as portrayed by Orson Wells is long gone and, nowadays, just used as an excuse.

HTC can only be optimistic about this year if they can guarantee their customers some decent amount of support on the devices.

When their flagship product cost almost a grand off contract then I expect minimum 3 years support. If Apple can it so can Android handset vendors.
