New rumors are circulating that HTC may introduce anything from two Android tablets to a Windows 8 phone or tablet at a press conference in New York on September 19.

Tech website Phone Arena claims that HTC is working on a successor to the 7-inch Flyer, and say that the model will offer 4G, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and an updated Scribe digital pen.

The model will also reportedly feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, dual-facing cameras and a slim anodized aluminium body, not dissimilar to that of the HTC One S smartphone, according to the source.

CNET has also raised the possibility that the Taiwanese vendor could use the same event to announce a 10-inch tablet.

The firm’s quad-core 10-inch Quattro tablet may have disappeared from view after debuting around 18 months ago, but new purported images could hint that HTC has either revised work on the model, or started from scratch on a new 10-inch tablet.

While it is unlikely HTC will show off more than two devices at the New York conference, other sources have raised the possibility of the vendor debuting a Windows 8 Phone, an Android phablet or a Windows 8 tablet at the event. The latter looks unlikely for now though, given HTC is currently banned from making Windows 8 tablets.
