We told you about a leaked HTC device named Ocean several weeks ago and now thanks to a Taiwanese source we have more info about it.

HTC Ocean Note is getting rid of the headphone jack

Being named HTC Ocean Note, the device will have between 5.5 and 5.7-inch display and as far as we see in the renders, there is no physical keys on the front. But something else is also missing and this is big – the 3.5 mm audio jack is gone. This will be the second device for HTC without the feature after they ditched the headphone jack in the HTC 10 evo or as Sprint customers know it HTC Bolt.

But the leaks tell us even more – HTC Ocean Note will have two more cool features. The first is a curved screen like Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The other key selling point is going to be its camera, but we are yet to learn the specifics there.

According to sources the company claims the title highest ranking from DxOMark which is currently a title held by Google Pixel with 89. The HTC 10 scores 88 points on the same scale, so improving by 2 points may not be too hard to imagine.

The source tells us Ocean Note will come in three color options and will probably be powered by a MediaTek chipset. Sales will start in time for the Chinese New Year which this year is on 28 January 2017.

  1. Anonymous, 31 Dec 2016People in the comments will complain about HTC no matter what, if the 3.5 jack is there, they’… moreEnough phones with thin bezels AND 3,5mm jack on the market.

  2. Nico, 31 Dec 2016Stop the BS of not including a 3.5mm jack HTC….

    Ohh, and curved screens are dumb…I agree

  3. Hahaha, all you Fandroids crying because of a missing port & then say HTC are coping Apple? Give me a break!

    First off, it was MOTOROLA that removed the jack first, not APPLE so HTC IS COPING MOTOROLA! Yes Motorola removed it for module reasons & Motorola is not as big as Apple so when Apple removed it there was more shockwaves sent around the world that everyone forgot that it was Motorola that actually removed before the iPhone 7 came out.

    Second, we do not know a lot about this handset other than the removal of the port & the fact that is has an Samsungesk edge screen (strange how no one has slated HTC for coping Samsung on this one but that what is wrong with you Fandroids, looking at what has been “copied” from the enemy!). For all we know HTC could have a neat little trick up its sleeve that will make you want it more than any other Android handset on the market & the removal of the jack could be important to that feature, unlike Apple for removing theirs.

    & third, if Apple had removed the port for something that was truly amazing & groundbreaking you Fandroids would not be complaining so much!

    while apple stick with the same design and give nothing innovative in return except the performance which I appreciate of course

    while apple st… moreYeah, I know. Thats why I put that Apple didnt really do any thing with the space that was left behind from removing the jack, except put on a Heptic engine which is good & all, better than vibration but it was nothing ground breaking. Fingers crossed we see what they will do with the space on the iPhone 8 & we will see what HTC will do with it as well.

    But when i put my hands over htc 10 ( its my friend’s mobile ) which has v4a and Dolby atmos… it destroyed s7 and even at vanilla too

  7. SJM32, 31 Dec 2016Hahaha, all you Fandroids crying because of a missing port & then say HTC are coping Apple… moreYep, Moto was the FIRST to remove the headphone jack. Personally, any company, regardless of platform IOS or Android that retains the headphone jack will get my money seeing as I like to consider myself an audiophile. I am wedded to my wires, with wireless as an option only which I almost never use. Headphones of choice are the Momentum 2.0 and PXC 550 Wireless (I only use it wired).

  8. Anonymous, 31 Dec 2016Yep, Moto was the FIRST to remove the headphone jack. Personally, any company, regardless of p… moreI was a wired headphone person as well until I got my Sony SBH-54 Bluetooth adaptor. I can still use my wired headphones & earphones but with a wireless connection.

    The only mistake I made was going for the SBH-54 which is good but a little to quiet. I have since read up & I should of gone for the SBH-52 which was a bit more expensive but it was better overall. I use this on both my iPhone 7+ & my LG G5.

  9. BTW, HTC always the phone innovator – after nokia
    *first to implement android
    *first to use metal uni body
    *first to make black metal uni body (and red, which Apple and Samsung will sure copycat)
    *first to use usb-type c
    *first to use the USB – c port as headphones jack
    *first to put the finger sensor on back
    *first to make so many software features we see on modern smartphones (you can Google it) like reducing the resolution on games, etc
    *and the list goes on
    There only problem is marketing

    *first to use … moreMarketing isn’t their own issue, stability with handsets is an issue as well. Thankfully this is improving slowly after the disaster that was the M8. Lovely looking phone, good display, good boom sound speakers, awful performance!

  11. SJM32, 31 Dec 2016Marketing isn’t their own issue, stability with handsets is an issue as well. Thankfully this … moreWat?!
    I have HTC M8 since 2014! and guess what, it is better than all my other smartphones I used (Note 1,2 , S3, S5,S6 as well as LG G3 and G4, and apple s5s and s6).
    HTC M8 unlike previous ones up there, never hanged, never have to reboot due to freeze (unlike Samsung), I have installed right now 281 apps, no slow performance at all, rooted and still have updates (but you have to reroot again), Sense UI with marshmallow is smooth, battery life is OK after 3 years use (battery enough for around 16 hrs with high use)

    The only thing that I don’t like about it is the camera, low resolutions

    Their motto is Quiet accurate.

    Their motto is Quiet accurate.Actually true

Instead of innovation we go back to 2008’s featurephones and worse. Properiatary headphones, awful battery life, less features. 2017 doesn’t look like its gonna be good for tech-savvy people with common sense.

  16. M.E , 31 Dec 2016A fading company, where is the innovation? Removing features isn’t innovation but desperation.

  17. Anonymous, 18 hours agoOnly thing we can do is vote with our wallet and voice our discontent everywhere possible.Yep. I do it with removable batteries too – my price limit is $250 – $300 (And i only buy models with 2 sim slots with dedicated sd slot. Of course, would never buy one without a 3.5mm jack, unless there’s no choice) and i’d never pay more for a phone with no removable battery.

  18. I don’t mind with the specs other than for that mediatek chipset. I was hoping for a snapdragon.

    *first to use … moreMost of them are by different manufacturers though. HTC may have been innovative in past but they lost their plot and have been on a downward spiral since then
