HTC posted this image to its Twitter feed earlier today, holding the promise of something new to welcome in the New Year. Under normal circumstances I'd guess this was a Vive VR related announcement, however as it is slated for just after the end of CES that's pretty unlikely.
So it seems likely that this will be a new phone. If that's the case then let's hope it turns out to be as successful as the last time the company focused its efforts around year.
lt won't, but it does give me the opportunity to link to probably the best smartphone commercial ever released.
