Beats might have bought out HTC’s share in it, but it appears that the company’s technology will still be available in HTC’s next flagship smartphone. Luke Wood, the company’s COO told Stuff in an interview that they had a commercial agreement, and its technology will still be available in HTC’s upcoming smartphones.
Current rumors suggest that HTC will launch a variant of the HTC One, which is being called the One Max. It will reportedly feature a larger screen and perhaps upgraded internals.
While stating this he stamped a sense of ambiguity over the Beats and HTC relationship and said that he could not comment whether the HTC and Beats relationship would continue in the future.
