Over the past few years, the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has faced a hard time in the smartphone market. As the company is gearing up for Exodus 2, a new NCC listing indicates the release of yet another phone. The phone will be a mid-range smartphone with the model number HTC 2Q7A100.
The design of the device is synonymous with the HTC One series, according to the prototype image on the listing. Further information on the NCC listing reveals that the phone will belong to the HTC One Series.
HTC 2Q7A100 phone’s specifications
The HTC 2Q7A100 first appeared on Geekbench in April, unraveling a couple of key specifications of the phone. The phone could have an 18:9 tall aspect ratio display without any notches. There will be a dual selfie camera on the front, the volume and the power buttons will be located towards the right.
The phone is expected to be 12mm thick with a plastic body. The thick bezels on the top and the bottom of the phone seem to be outdated, as they cut off the screen space. The color of the phone in the NCC listing is grey and more color options will likely appear.
According to the Geekbench listing, the phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC along with 6GB RAM. It will run on the Android 9 Pie OS software version topped with the HTC’s custom skin. The phone’s resolution will be 1,080 x 2,160 pixels with a complete HD+ display. The HTC 2Q7A100 will come with an internal storage of 128 GB.
The NCC listing suggests that the phone will be soon launched in Taiwan but no official confirmation from the company has been made yet. As HTC has not released any smartphone this year, HTC 2Q7A100 will possibly be its first release.
Another Geekbench listing appeared in May stating that the phone will use a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC. The 2Q741 has a 2.3GHz octa-core processor with 6 GB RAM, running on Android 9.0 Pie OS. It has been speculated that the phone might be a MediaTek variant of HTC 2Q7A100, designed for a few markets.
There is a distinction in both the Geekbench ratings, however, it is not an uncommon phenomenon. It is indeed possible that the different chipsets will be offered to different markets, similar to Samsung.
