HTC is teasing their latest event with an image of smartphone parts surrounding a date. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a nice image. But you’d think HTC would use its own phone internals to tease an upcoming phone. Preferably U12+ internals, but any recent HTC phone internals would do.
But that’s not how HTC do. This teaser contains a collection of iPhone 6 internals. Just check out the above image next to iFixit’s teardown of the iPhone 6.
Yes, HTC really did use an old iPhone’s internals in their ad. Whether this was an internal decision at HTC or some third-party is unknown, but it’s pretty embarrasing nonetheless. HTC sells to tech nerds, and they thought we wouldn’t notice?
