HTC teases, “This Sunday you’ll discover something fast”


This weekend is the time that HTC fans have been waiting for. On Sunday in Barcelona, HTC will hold their press conference for Mobile World Congress and unveil their full lineup of 2012 devices. Today HTC posted an image of a generic phone with the number 5 and a message that read, “This Sunday you’ll discover something fast.”

We think the number 5 could represent the 5-cores inside the Tegra 3 processor that powers the HTC One X, or it could simply be that we are 5 days away from the event.

HTC says the show will begin at 8:30 PM Barcelona time, which is 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST in the United States. We don’t know if they are providing a live stream yet, but we will be sure to let you know if one is available.

What surprises do you think HTC has in store? Any guesses what the number 5 represents?

    I think the five is the count down of days. So the Sunday is day one which is the name of the phone.

    Makes sense to me.

  • spazby

    5 new devices in their 2012 lineup?

    • Jeff Pan

      Make sense!

        It could also mean 5 days and 5 new phones. Unless they have a 5-core cpu… If you think that they want to release a Tegra3 phone (which has 4+1 cores), it might be true.

  • Owain

    5″ Phone? I hope so!

  • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

    I’m guessing it’s a simple countown until the HTC One line of devices is unveiled on day #1 which would fall on Sunday. Can’t wait!

  • Sean M

    it’s the new HTC iPhone5!

    • Voliam

      Running stock Android 5.0 and a hex-core CPU!

      • Voliam

        Make that a penta-core CPU in keeping with the ’5′.

  • Vance

    5 new devices: three phones, two tablets

  • co.ag.2005

    5 hours of battery life on new phones :)

    I kid… I kid… (kind of)

  • jimmyB

    the HTC Ville is the HTC One S (slim)

  • damdnation

    im guessing it has something to do with HTML5

  • Joel

    If it changes to 4 or 3 then we’ll definitely know its the number of days. 5 cores….jeez, cant wait to see what u can do with something that powerful.

    • OnIn2

      Didn’t Taylor blog that the new Quad-cores were really 5 cores. The 5th being a low wattage core that was mainly used be your Android device is idling i.e. resting ?

      Great concept or did I just dream that ?

    • sunrise

      The 5 core Tegra-3 Kal-el is already being used in the Asus Transformer Prime.

  • sunrise

    How does power consumption of Tegra-3 Kal-el compare to current dual core chips such as S3, current dual core exynos, and Ti-Omap?

  • paul

    Can’t wait hopefully the phone will have a physical camera button & the video recordink microphone will not be tinny like most HTC phones.

  • ArticulateFool

    New tech announcements are so exciting!

  • schlehmil

    5 GhZ, 5 cores, 5 GB main memory, 5 mpx front camera for 5 bucks

  • ihatefanboys

    Hopefully one of the new phones released this year will be the T-Mobile G3, its about time for a new phone in the G series from HTC. I think TMO putting the G2 back on its website for sale was a precursor to the announcement of the new G3.

    • CTown

      How hard can it be? I mean it “Ain’t nothin’ but a G-thang!”

  • MrDSL

    Come on people clearly its a “5 dollar foot long”

    • KG

      The phone is gonna have a 12-inch screen!?

  • Jonathan

    isn’t it 4 days til the 26th? considering today is the 22nd

  • redraider133

    Just like the thunderbolt wasn’t your dream phone it was the one after and we all know how that turned out lol

  • Nathan D.

    Can’t wait to see what they are going to show.

  • WlfHart

    I’m excited…

  • Shawn Clark

    My guess is 3 phones to represent a specific trim and 2 tablets for what size screen fits the user

  • donger

    HTC better have something good up their sleeves.
