If this rumour pans out to be real, the entire smartphone world would indeed witness yet another revolutionary innovation in interface soon and HTC seems to be in the forefront of this.
The new “Ocean” series from HTC has been rumoured to be in the works and would likely launch early next year. What is particularly interesting about the new model series is the fact that there really won’t be any buttons on it. Yep! You heard that right. No power buttons, no volume buttons, nada…..
Rumours have it that the Ocean series would have all those functions embedded within the casing. Thus with a simple swipe, Touch or pressure touch on the edges, sides or parts of the body, would perform those functions.
Though no info regarding looks and specs have been given officially by HTC, Tech Configurations has released image renders of what the HTC Ocean might indeed look like in line with hearsays and trends. See photos below:
The new design form factor is noticeable here too with the chamfered edge design. Also seen is the USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and dual camera setup.
While this would be great to see in reality, how it would be adopted by users is another.
What do you guys think?
