Unknown HTC device appears in GeekBench with MediaTek CPU and 6GB RAM

Ricky, 03 May 2019

Back in December, HTC announced that it was going to change up its smartphone strategy for 2019. Part of that strategy is extending the life-cycle of the HTC U12+ and U12 Life. It also vowed to focus on flagship and midrange smartphones for this year.

A new listing appeared on GeekBench for an unknown HTC device running a MediaTek Helio P35 paired with 6GB RAM. The device has a model number HTC 2Q741 and runs Android 9 Pie. We wonder if this could be an upcoming mid-range smartphone from HTC.

It could perhaps even be a MediaTek variant of the same smartphone that was spotted on Geekbench last month with a Snapdragon 710 CPU and 6GB of RAM. A MediaTek variant could be targeted to specific markets. That Snapdragon device appeared with a similar model number of 2Q7A100.

No other specs have been revealed about this mystery HTC midranger. In any case, we'll be keeping a close eye on HTC leaks as they come around. Now that we've seen the benchmarks, we should be somewhat close to seeing the real deal.
