The HTC Wildfire returns, at least in name, with four new phones rumored for release

If you've placed bets on when HTC will release its last smartphone (at least under its own name) and have marked that date prior to June of this year, you've lost your money. The financially-languishing Taiwanese phone maker still has some gusto left and it may look to continue getting its name out there one way or another. The latest news in its attempts to do so comes from Russia, where regulatory documents have indicated that the company will promote several new smartphones in the near future using a familiar name for longtime HTC fans.

Two months back, HTC announced its intention to update the U11, U11+, and U12+ phones to Android 9 Pie.

HTC has two (mediocre) new phones, proving it's not dead just yet

Despite lackluster sales, continually declining revenue, and customer support issues, HTC, to the surprise of many, is still making new smartphones. The company has announced two new mid-range devices for its home market of Taiwan - HTC U19e and Desire 19+. This marks a move from a series-based naming system (U11 > U12) to a (presumably) year-based one, with the number 19 for devices launched in 2019 —  because obviously, product nomenclature is HTC's biggest problem right now.

Earlier this month, HTC tweeted that its U11, U11+, and U12+ phones would be getting updated to Android 9 Pie this spring, beginning with the U11 before the end of May.

[Update: Pre-orders live on Sprint] The HTC 5G Hub is coming to Sprint, Three UK, Deutsche Telekom, and other carriers

One of the main promises of 5G is bringing ultra-fast internet to homes. Instead of laying fiber cable underground, which is extremely costly and time-consuming, ISPs can set up 5G towers instead. HTC announced a product at Mobile World Congress designed just for that use case — the simply-named '5G Hub.'
