As the name suggests, the HTC Ocean Note could be the first ever flagship phablet from the Taiwanese manufacturer. However, as the globe gravitates towards incorporating dual-camera phones on their devices, the latest image gallery suggests that the company is going to stick to a single camera. While that’s not a bad choice at all, a dual-camera is still advantageous, provided the default software is equally refined as the hardware of the device.

HTC Ocean Note Case Gallery Reveals Several More Cutouts Than You Would Expect From a Smartphone – Additional Ports or Speakers Expected

Looking at the rear side of the case, we see the volume rockers and the power button, but what about the other cutouts? All the details have been blurred out so there is no way of making sure at this time which cutout is going to be used for what purpose exactly. From what we can tell, the port in the middle is going to be for the charging port, and looking at where the industry is headed, the Ocean Note could feature a Type-C USB port.

Other details of the cutout suggest that the smartphone is going to retain the headphone jack because it actually provides tremendous amounts of flexibility to the user when they are charging the handset, wired or otherwise. The camera cutout looks like it would just fit in a single camera lens, and most of the time, that’s all you need from a smartphone shooter. However, handsets with dual-cameras are able to capture DSLR-like-bokeh by blurring the background, so you have a portable and compact DSLR alternative tucked in your pocket. In addition, the LED flash cutout looks like it will be able to support more LEDs, and that’s always a good thing when you want to highlight objects in the image that would normally not get illuminated.

In our previous leaks, the Ocean Note render didn’t show a dual-camera either, so it is possible that this is going to be HTC’s plan for the future. However, we will remind you to take this leak with a pinch of salt because looking at how improved the HTC 10 was, we should expect a boatload of surprises from the manufacturer in 2017.
