A little earlier this afternoon, HTC posted a short Vine clip to Twitter with the announcement “big things ahead,” and featuring the hashtag #HTChange – what could the company be up to here?
The “big things” part might conjure up thoughts of the HTC One Max, especially after we got to check out that leaked photo. It looks like Phandroid was thinking the same thing, but claims to have received a tip that this could be in reference to something else entirely.
The video quality is simply awful, with the aspect ratio highly distorted – in fact, if this wasn’t on an official HTC account, we’d be struggling to accept it as legitimate. Based on the content, it almost seems to suggest a change in management – a mysterious executive arriving, and all that – but that would be a seriously weird thing to tease in this manner.
We looked into that #HTChange hashtag, and it shows up a little prior to the Vine post, on HTC’s Spanish-language Twitter account. There, the message translates roughly as “good things are coming,” but without any sign of a “big things”-type size reference, further making a One Max connection sound less likely.
So, what then? The Zara? Maybe not a new product at all? Until we see something else, we find ourselves at a bit of a loss.
