The rumor mill diligently to himself, as the traditional season of flagships is imminent. Surrounded by CES and MWC established manufacturers maintain known to present their respective top models for the upcoming year - so usually also HTC. The Taiwanese manufacturer needs a best seller that convinces both the trade press and customers. For although the figures stabilized in recent months, it is not good to the former Android pioneer.

Initially it was assumed that it should judge the internally as "HTC O2" traded smartphone. In August first details on the successor to the HTC One M9 flopped leaked and voted the least optimistic, although we could not conceal a certain skepticism even then - rightly, it seems, because the "HTC O2" is reportedly history. The reported renowned custom ROM developers LlabTooFeR on Twitter.

HTC Perfume: Android 6.1 rather unlikely

What exactly "HTC Perfume" now brings, is currently unknown. The developer is only an insight into the software of the supposed high-end smartphones. It is supposed to run from the factory with Android 6.1 Marshmallow, the in-house Sense UI inside out about the HTC in the new version 8.0. That sounds very promising at first, but neither Android 6.1 Sense 8.0 still have had so far look in any form. In addition, Android 6.0.1 was released recently, a timely release of version 6.1 is therefore unlikely. Considering the fact that HTC but will probably present its new flagship smartphone alleged to March, at the very latest by April, an indication of LlabTooFeR appear but dared us something.

It is quite conceivable that Google may eventually come around the corner in the spring with Android 6.1 - was running Android 5.1 Lollipop after all the same. However, the developers remained with HTC then only a few weeks to prepare a modified chassis for a standing in the media focus device. And if HTC can afford to delay the presentation of the prestigious flagship model until the summer, however, is more than questionable - especially since Google any new flagship features should already pick up to the I / O developer conference in June at ease, regardless of the then vermeldenden version number.

HTC Perfume probably again with Boom Sound speakers

What technical data, the "HTC Perfume" is open, can only speculate meanwhile. The previously traded "HTC O2" a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels display and a 20.7 MP camera were rumored. All in all, pretty generic and expectable for 2016 specifications. but we can at least assume that once again booming sound speakers and a fingerprint sensor will be installed.
