Reports about OnePlus 6’s unveiling have been a little bit confusing, but that’s probably because the Chinese handset maker plans to have more than just one launch event. Our previous report claimed the OnePlus 6 will be unveiled on May 18 and that doesn’t seem far from the truth.

HTC continued its free fall in January as the company reported a 15% decline in revenue sequentially (from December 2017), and a 27% decline year-over-year (from January 2017). Even though the HTC U11 was arguably the manufacturer’s best flagship in years, the company once again failed to gain any traction against Samsung and the Chinese Android manufacturers who have overtaken HTC over the last few years.

One might argue that HTC peaked with 2010’s EVO 4G, which we gave a 9.5 out of 10 with our review back in 2010. And even though the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8) impressed many with its …
