The smartphone vendor announced two devices under the same U series earlier this year - HTC U Ultra and U Play which with no doubt, looks absolutely stunning. As rumors suggest, the upcoming smartphone, codenamed "Ocean" will simply be called HTC U. We already know a lot about the upcoming smartphone courtesy of numerous leaks and benchmark listings.
In line with previous leaks, the metallic frame of the HTC U will be embedded with sensors. There is no word on when the HTC U will be unveiled but we'll keep an eye out if more details emerge.
HTC U will run the latest Android OS, namely the Nougat 7.1, and will have their own Sense Home UI featured on top of that.
Leaked images reveals what appears to be a significant bezel on the HTC phone, unlike recent flagship offerings from Samsung and LG. It will also have a 5.5-inch WQHD display with a 3D Gorilla Glass 5 Protection and will be powered by the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The HTC U is also expected to come equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX362 sensor, while the front-facing camera will reportedly be a 16-megapixel shooter with an IMX351 sensor.
On the camera front, the upcoming HTC U smartphone is expected to come with a pretty much similar camera specifications like that of the HTC U Ultra.
Visit HTC's website right now and you will see the company's high-end phones getting reduced to far more affordable prices than what they were originally being sold for. We expect the HTC U to be widely available in the USA at launch, although it remains to be seen if all major United States carriers will sell the device or if it only be available from a select few.
