HTC may have sold a significant portion of its smartphone business to Google a few years ago, but the company still seems to be producing new phones… and not just niche models like the HTC Exodus line of blockchain phones.

The HTC U19e is a smartphone with a 6 inch, 2160 x 1080 pixel OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. 6GB of RAM, and a $475 price tag, while the HTC Desire U19+ has a 6.2 inch screen, at least 4GB of RAM, and starting price of about $315.

Both models are going on sale in Taiwan soon, with the U19e launching this week and the Desire U19+ coming in July.

It’s unclear whether either model will be available in the US or Europe anytime soon. But I suppose it’s nice to see that a company that was once a major player in the smartphone space isn’t down for the count just yet.

  1. Didn’t Google buy most of their hardware division for making in Pixel line? I think that’s mostly what keeps them in business

  2. Glad to see new HTC phones. I had a couple of their phones in the past and liked them. Still wish they would go with Android One…and bring back the headphone jack like some other manufactures.
