This year, a couple of features are looking to be guaranteed across all flagships. Following Apple's decision to remove the 3.5mm earphone jack on the iPhone 7, other manufacturers are also expected to follow suit. Whether their decisions are a result of Cupertino's or not, we can't say for sure. Still, you will say goodbye to the age old port on flagship smartphones this year. Furthermore, both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 have also been rumored to remove the home button from the mix.

Not to fall behind, similar information has surfaced for the HTC Ocean Note. The device is also expected to remove the earphone jack and feature a dual camera to boot. Now, it looks like HTC might go one step ahead this year. Sources now suggest that the HTC Ocean Note won't feature any physical buttons. It'll be a major design win for HTC and will spell the way for the future on mobile flagships.

A device without physical buttons is surely the thing to look for this year. HTC's known for its design prowess and such a feature will go a long way for the company. After all, the company never fully recovered from the One M9's failure on the Snapdragon 810. The HTC Ocean Note appears to be a well thought out device indeed. Powered with the Snapdragon 835 and no physical buttons, it'll make a strong impact on the flagship sphere.

The device is rumored to launch later this month, so we won't have to wait a lot to see what HTC's got planning under the hood. Still, sources also claim that there won't be a US release, as HTC simply doesn't have the human resources to tackle the country. Will you be looking to get a HTC Ocean Note?
