Honestly if the HTC keeps with their pricing their phones will be left in stores untouched.
Nobody will buy almost dead brand for a price of a brand new flagship from Samsung or Apple or Google.
Honestly if they just made the U12+ with latest specs, better front and back cameras, a proper audiophile grade headphone jack output and PROPER BUTTONS i'd buy it in a heartbeat.
don't add stupid notches/cut-outs or curved screens and keep the bezels so i can actually hold it landscape without accidental presses

There is nothing to research about... I forshadowed almost anything in the smartphone business.
Next big thing if you ask me? Prepare to have our phones to be much more fragile in years to come.
For now only the left and right side have an edge. Prepare to have it in every 4 corners
Just make a copy of the LG V30, with as good or better battery life, no curved screen, and updated cameras, and there is a winning phone right there. And yes, if they can make it 1-2mm shorter length that would be insanely good. But dont forget to make it as light, or lighter than the V30. Voila. All manufacturers should read this, its the best advice they will ever get.
The above can be done quite cheap, but can be sold for a high price.

Who remembers Galaxy Note 3/4 faux leather plastic back? It was so grippy it was really hard to get the phone slip out of your hand.
But people will say plastic is not premium. Then why not replace it with real leather? That's premium and Huawei regularly makes some special editions with it, it looks really good.
I will be interested in buying a HTC phone with high end Snapdragon processor without the bells and whistles (like the Samsung Galaxy A90). And not interested in that squeeze gimmick or no physical buttons. Those two gimmicks prevented me from buying the HTC U12 or U11. Why fumble with those silly squeezes when I can just tap or hit a button? I want to buy a HTC phone because the other phones do not meet my requirements:
Samsung: don't like the curve display or edge screen and tall phones
Pixel: don't have micro-card SD expansion (very useful for crossing the border)
Sony: the latest phones are all tall and skinny phones, keyboard is smaller, harder to type
LG: Will buy LG V40 but is discontinued or sold out at B&H
Nokia: Nokia 9 has no micro-card SD expansion, Nokia 8 seems to be discontinued

Manufacturers should make both metal and glass versions of their flagships, so people who value wireless charging get what they want, we'll get durability with a metal back.

Well, 2 months ago, it was struck with a Ghost touch so strong that I became impatient on buying the RoG Phone 2 and instead grabbed the Tencent version of it. My fandom and wish for a complete flagship from HMD Nokia is dead.
I miss the time when I could toss my M8 anywhere without the fear of breaking it. Now all phones come with fugly feminine glass back
HTC went downhill when they decided to follow the trend by getting rid of the 3.5mm jack and adopting the fugly glass back design. Basically gave up their best two features in audio quality and full metal industrial design
