HTC working on a new line up of device monikored ‘Ocean’ was revealed last week. Now we have the names of the line-up, thanks to ROM developer LlabTooFer.
According to LlabTooFer, the Ocean series includes HTC Ocean Master, Ocean Note, and Ocean Smart. Not much details on the specifications are out in the open yet. But given HTC’s commitment to Google’s upcoming Pixel devices, we know for sure the Ocean series could make its debut in the next year.
A video of the unannounced HTC smartphone was first posted by Danelle Vermeulen, HTC Motion designer. A glimpse of the design reveals HTC Ocean is equipping a new touch sense technology in the back panel which could activate certain functions of the phone like the camera or media player with a tap or swipe. The frame of the smartphone will be touch sensitive.
On the leak, Danelle said the HTC Ocean is not a real smartphone but just a concept. “Yes, this is just a conceptual piece and does not represent any real product from HTC,” Danelle was quoted as saying by 9To5Google.
