The touch sensitive HTC U leaked: looks like the HTC U Ultra

The touch sensitive HTC U leaked: looks like the HTC U Ultra

HTC U will be the third phone in its U series, following the HTC U Play and HTC U Ultra, which launched in January. Now, leakster Evan Blass, has shared what seems like the first renders of the HTC U. In fact, it's very similar to the already unveiled U Ultra smartphone. The photos show a black slab of a phone that looks a bit like the HTC U Ultra, but that also doesn't appear to have any major distinguishing characteristics.

After so many rumours about the HTC's upcoming smartphone HTC U aka Ocean Note, now fresh leaked images of the smartphone are surfacing on the internet.

In line with previous leaks, the metallic frame of the HTC U will be embedded with sensors. However, this new image is different from what we have seen before. The front is also similar, although the difference here will be in the existence of the secondary ticker display on top which we cannot spot on the live image.

Subject to availability beginning December 2016 to California residents on approved credit through Honda Financial Services. Honda expects the EPA efficiency rating to be 105 MPGe, which the company says is "top of its class" among plug-in hybrids.

The phone features a home button in the front, which is expected to double up as fingerprint scanner. Alas, there's not much to see here; we don't get a good look at the HTC U's marquee feature: a touch sensitive side frame that allows for a variety of customizable UI interactions. It will run Android 7.1 Nougat with the company's Sense 9 over the top. 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 sport a massive 12MP Sony IMX362 sensor at the back and a 16-megapixel IMX351 sensor over at the front. Codenamed "Ocean", the HTC U has been making the rounds for a little while now. What do you think of HTC's next flagship?
