This phone will have a hard future. The Zenfone 5Z available in June offers a lot value for your money including features that this phone doesn't has, for only 479 euros. The Mi 7 will has underdisplay fingerprint sensor plus IR camera added to the well knowed features, cameras with OIS, SD845, etc, for probably a lot lower price than this phone too.
The hope for this phone is that it doesn't has notch and is an alternative for those that doesn't like or hate the notches. But Samsung dominate that market and the Huawei Mates are there. At the end depending of the price it'd be more or less succeful becouse it can't be denied that money it'll costs matters when you must to import the phone, don't have local customer service for repairs or maintenance, etc.

YalokIy, 03 Apr 2018Where is the notch? I want better screen to body ratio!Then buy some shit chinese brands...like huawei..oppo..vivo...asus... don't expect from htc to copy such terribly unacceptable trends....
Nickz, 03 Apr 2018All this needs is a notch and it'll be perfect!No, you stay out of it! I'm sure you'll dislike the notch if Samsung does it. No! Stay out.
Unless it has a 3930 mAh battery again (not 3420or 3450 mAh that is rumored) and a screen I can see in direct sunlight at full brightness, this will be a no buy.

AnonD-579884, 03 Apr 2018 htc v30 rip!Lol!
On a rectangular shaped body where else can you place the cameras!
This is better than the other brands who were blindly copying iphone x's notch and the vertical camera placement.
YalokIy, 03 Apr 2018Where is the notch? I want better screen to body ratio!No! You go hide behind a rock. Phones coming from premium companies don't deserve a notch! Be glad there's a company who is against the norms.
Notches are a temporary but unacceptable fix.
If the secondary camera is wide angle, then it's great, if it's the useless "zoom" lens again, than it's pointless.
AnonD-473228, 03 Apr 2018Their camera is already one of the bestTotally agree, as did Google. Saw an interview comment recently (interview done early 2017), where a top Google guy said that HTC were the kings of phone photography and imaging. Tbh, HTC u11 plus was almost my next phone, but the lack of wireless charging killed it for me. HTC sound capture is terrific, as are the photos and videos. All I'd want added would be a little of the Google magic sauce.
