HTC Shares Teaser for New Phone That Inexplicably Features iPhone 6 Parts
HTC today sent out emails and updated its website with a teaser image for an upcoming event that will see the launch of its next flagship device.
The image in question features smartphone components overlaid with a date, and given that HTC is teasing a new smartphone, it would be logical to assume these are HTC components, but as AnandTech points out, HTC’s image features iPhone 6 parts.

It is not clear why HTC is teasing its next-generation smartphone with components from an Apple device that’s four years old rather than the upcoming device or at least an HTC smartphone, but it’s an embarrassing mistake for the company to make.

HTC’s May 23 event will likely see the debut of the HTC U12, the successor to the HTC U11.
