HTC chose not to unveil anything big at CES this year, and has instead scheduled its own standalone event for January 12, which is this Thursday. As we approach that, we're starting to see more and more leaks about the devices that will get official on that occasion. Just today we saw purported spec lists being outed for both the HTC U Ultra and the U Play, and a few days ago many details about the One X10 were also revealed.
HTC made the letter U a huge part of its event invite, so two of those handsets are definitely being announced this week. If you don't want to miss out on the big unveil, here's some good news: the Taiwanese company will be livestreaming the event.
The stream goes live at 4 PM Taiwan time, which is 12 AM PST, 3 AM EST, 8 AM GMT, 9 AM CET, 1:30 PM IST. This has been made public through the new teaser video you can see above, though at just ten seconds long this information is pretty much the only new thing it brings. Oh, and yes, the letter U is once again big and bold and everywhere. So it's pretty clear that HTC will launch a new line of smartphones, U-branded, in order to complement its high-end flagships in its portfolio.
