HTC to focus on the Desire lineup at CES

As expected the HTC One (M8) successor rumored as HTC Hima won’t make it to CES 2015 in Vegas early next year. While HTC has already sent invitations for a special press event on January 5 in Las Vegas and HTC Hima has even leaked via AnTuTu, it seems the flagship won’t be stealing the spotlight just yet.

A newly released teaser on Weibo says “Always Desire more”, which clearly means new Desire smartphone or smartphones will be announced at CES. This isn’t such a surprise though as both HTC One and HTC One (M8) weren’t introduced on CES, but prior and after the MWC expos in February-March.

HTC may want to announce the new One flagship at a stand-alone event once again thus not sharing the news with any major competition.

So, a new Desire or Desire phones are coming. One of them is probably the recently leaked HTC A-12 mid-ranger powered by the Snapdragon 410 chipset and offering a 4.7″ 720p display. The rest of its rumored specs include 1GB of RAM, an 8MP cam and a 2,100 mAh battery. Android KitKat and Sense UI should be in charge of operations.

HTC A12 will allegedly launch on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless in the United States. We will keep an eye out for more details on the handset going forward.
