HTC plans to launch new 5G smartphones this year

htc u19eOn the smartphone front, HTC has been rather quiet. The company hasn’t completely exited the market yet, and it looks like that won’t happen anytime soon either. This is according to a new report by DigiTimes which claims that HTC is apparently planning to return to the smartphone market later this year with new 5G phones.

HTC’s smartphone efforts have been somewhat spotty lately. The company launches new phones every now and then and has also embarked on interesting concepts such as the blockchain smartphone. We’re not sure what kind of devices we can expect to see later this year, whether they’ll be budget 5G smartphones, or if they’ll be flagships that might signal HTC’s desire to return to the market full-time.

HTC was one of the biggest companies in the early days of the smartphone, competing with the likes of Samsung, LG, and Motorola when it came to launching phones. However, they eventually started to decline which led to them slowly fading into the background after selling their smartphone division to Google.

We’re not sure what the company’s plans are with their rumored new smartphones since there are a lot of alternatives out there these days, so we’ll have to wait and see what kind of products they’ll be able to roll out.
