HTC who last week released a snappy looking $199 Desire 650 smartphone is set to renter the top end mobile market with an all new HTC U top end smartphone. Codenamed Ocean, the device will take on the new LG G6 and Samsung S8 series. As for the early advantage, HTC U will be cheaper than both the G6 and S8.
In the previous weeks, the company also released its new smartphone the U Ultra and the U Play. Leaked images have circulated on the internet suggested that HTC U Ocean will feature Gorilla Glass on both front and rear side. In close observation, the device looks similar to the recently released HTC U Ultra.
HTC U Ocean is also rumored to operate with Snapdragon 835 chipset and will be integrated with a touch-sensitive frame, similar to the Galaxy S8 but without the curvy screen. According to Pocket Lint, the new Edge Sense technology allows users to control the device by customizing the swiping actions with gestures (including squeezing). It is also said that the HTC U Ocean will include Sense 9 and running Android 7.1 Nougat.
When it comes to the cameras, HTC U Ocean will sport a 12 MP IMX362 Sony sensor for the rear camera and a higher 16 MP IMX351 for the front. These sensors are significantly larger than the one found in the LG G6. Storage wise, the upcoming HTC U Ocean will come in 64 GB and 128 GB models, both equipped with microSD expansion for larger storage. Similar to the U Ultra and U Play, the Ocean is also ditching the audio jack, as reported by Android Authority. It is said to be water and dust resistant with IP57 ingress protection rating.
The leaked images also show that the device appears to feature significant bezels, unlike the Samsung S8 and LG G6. The HTC U Ocean is also keeping the physical button on the front device, and there will be no rear fingerprint scanner - a current trend of high-end devices that can be seen on Huawei, Samsung and LG smartphones. When it comes to the display style, the HTC U Ocean apparently features a 5.5 inch 2560 x 1440 QHD Display.
