Last month, reports surfaced that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is planning to re-enter the Indian market and the company today posted a short video teaser on micro-blogging website Twitter, confirming its re-entry claims with a new smartphone. The video teaser doesn't reveal any specific date, model or pricing details of the smartphone the firm is planning to launch for its comeback but gives a glimpse of HTC's so far journey in India.

Starting from the launch of world's first touch-centric phone in 2007 to the world's first smartphone with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in the front and rear camera, the video ends with the sketch of its upcoming smartphone with a waterdrop-style notch. The phone is expected to be HTC Desire 19+, which was launched back in June 2019 in Taiwan.
