HTC s latest efforts to revive its troubled smartphone brand will be detailed at the 'for U' media event on Thursday, but images leaked on Tuesday may have given the game away.

Hands-on pictures claimed to be of the phablet codenamed HTC Ocean Note, also known as the X10, made it to the web via Chinese social networking site Weibo h/t AndroidPolice .

Judging by the pics see below , HTC will ditch the aluminium unibody design in favour of a glass casing, perhaps a sign the Taiwanese company is taking cues from Samsung.

Elsewhere, the design showcases a noticeably protruding camera module.

In terms of features, HTC appears to have borrowed the secondary ticker above the display from the recent LG V20.

This looks as if it ll offer shortcuts to recently used apps and services.
