The Mobile World Congress has traditionally been one of most popular events for smartphone manufacturers to launch their flagships and this year is no different. HTC has started to send out invites for an upcoming event in Barcelona on March 1st, which leads us to believe that the company could be announcing the successor to its One M8 flagship at the trade show.
HTC has sent out invites to press for an event scheduled for March 1st in Barcelona. That can mean only one thing: they’re bringing something big to Mobile World Congress. The annual trade show has always been the launching pad for several OEMs’ biggest flagships, and HTC is no different. With that, we’re expecting to see the spiritual successor to the HTC One M8, which we’ve been referring to as the HTC Hima in rumors regarding the device (though we wouldn’t be surprised to see HTC go with HTC One M9 for its retail name). The invite doesn’t give much away, but its “Utopia In Progress” tagline does seem to confirm HTC is going to produce something that looks as good as it performs. We’ll be toting our bags over to Europe next month to take it all in for ourselves so be sure to sty tuned to Phandroid once March 1st arrives.
