One of the serial leakers is LIabTooFer, who has been active in the leaks business. Recently he came forward with a bit of an interesting leak claiming that the HTC Ultra will be unveiled on the January 12th with single and dualism modifications. The initial release date was being tipped to be around March, if this claim is true, then we have to say it’s a pretty significant rollback of the launch date by HTC.

LlabTooFer is also confirming that the device will support dual SIM connectivity, which is a popular choice among mobile users in Far East, Asia, Middle East, and other emerging markets. Some earlier rumors alluded to a possibility that this dual SIM setup in the upcoming HTC smartphones will allow users to use both 3G and 4G LTE enabled SIM cards at the same time.
Another interesting bit that’s being thrown around regarding the 2017 lineup of smartphones from HTC is the absence of 3.5mm earphone jack. Taking a leaf out of Apple’s book, HTC appears to be pursuing the same approach when it comes to earphone jack on their phones.
Further HTC Ultra leaked information provides details about the features and the marketing strategy that’s been decided by HTC. Onleaks rarely miss the mark when it comes to leaking reliable tech information ahead of the new device launch. However, this time Onleaks (Steve) himself is quoting a source rather than owning the leak, which isn’t as credible as Onleaks, therefore, chances of misinformation cannot be discounted. This rumored information claims that the HTC Ocean Note will be marketed as HTC Ultra with a 6-inch display reserved for the flagship model.
