New HTC Smartphone with Model Number 2Q7A100 Pops-up on Bluetooth SIG, Powered by Snapdragon 710


An upcoming mid-range Android smartphone from HTC with model number 2Q7A100 had been certified by Taiwan’s NCC certification agency last month. Prior to getting certified by the NCC, the smartphone had also been spotted on Geekbench and AnTuTu and benchmarks. The upcoming smartphone has now been granted Bluetooth certification, which suggests it may finally be made official soon.

HTC 2Q7A100 to Finally Go Official Soon?

The HTC 2Q7A100 has been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) with the model number “2Q7AXXX”. This could possibly mean that there could be some more variants of the 2Q7AXXX other than 2Q7A100. As expected, the Bluetooth certificate does not reveal any details regarding the hardware inside the smartphone. It only confirms the upcoming HTC smartphone will have support for the Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy standard.

Previous leaks have revealed that the HTC 2Q7A100 will be equipped with Qualcomm’s popular 10nm Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone’s display size remains a mystery, although its appearance on the AnTuTu benchmark revealed it will come with a 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution panel with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Going by the display resolution, it is quite clear that the HTC 2Q7A100 will not have a notched display and could come with significantly thicker bezels compared to most new mid-range Android smartphones that have been released this year. An alleged diagram of the smartphone included in the NCC certification document confirmed the same and suggested it may come equipped with two front-facing cameras. Provided the diagram was accurate, it could mean that the 2Q7A100 will be a successor to last year’s U11 EYEs. The U11 EYEs featured dual 5MP resolution selfie cameras with HDR boost, bokeh mode, and beauty mode features.

As far as the smartphone’s software is concerned, the HTC 2Q7A100 listings on both Geekbench and AnTutu confirm it will be running on Android 9 Pie out of the box. Like other HTC smartphones, you can expect to see the company’s Sense UI layered on top.
