Alleged renders of the HTC U come to light (UPDATE)
by Alan Friedman / Apr 03, 2017, 11:46 AM
As March was coming to an end, a rumor about HTC's next flagship phone started taking flight. According to this speculation, the phone will be called the HTC U, and features a 5.5-inch display carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset will power the device, which means that it will feature an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. HTC's Sense 9 UI will be on board, and the handset will come with 64GB and 128GB of expandable native storage. A 12MP camera will be found in back, while a 16MP selfie shooter adorns the front of the unit.
UPDATE: According to a report published today, the render at the top of this story is a photoshopped HTC U Play. Not only do the dimensions of the rendered handset match those of the U Play, a picture of the HTC U Play in the same exact pose pretty much confirms that the HTC U render is fake.
Today, renders allegedly showing off the HTC U (nicknamed "Ocean") were disseminated by SlashLeaks. If the renders are legit, the new handset will offer thin side bezels and trimmer top and bottom bezels. Dual speakers are on the bottom of the device, along with a Type-C USB port between them. Oddly enough, the renders fail to show a power button, fingerprint scanner or volume controls. Could HTC have embedded all of these buttons under the glass display? We should know sometime late this month when the phone is expected to be unveiled. The launch is supposed to take place early in May.
Last week, a phone called the HTC CBP appeared on AnTuTu equipped with the same specs that we expect for the HTC U. With an expected late April introduction of the HTC U, we should see the number of leaks increase over the next few weeks. Feel free to check in often.

At least they changed bezel, you got the same phone with headphone jack removed and you (iphone and iphone guys) threw money at it. (I don't think they are same phones, I think a lot of things changed in both, I just replied in language you will understand).

if this is what the next HTC looks like I will probably end up with it, I have been a huge HTC fan for a long time. I have had a lot of HTC phones ever since the Diamond and really hope that they can be around for a long time. I have had several other phones and other then pure android I like HTC Sense. Samsung and LG have awesome phones but unless I am willing to root them and put a custom rom on either phone, they have "soft" colorful ux's and that is one of the biggest things that I look for in a smartphone I don't buy one to impress anyone else or fit in with the crowd. So I currently have the HTC 10 and other then the next Moto X this HTC U will be my next

Every argument about Samsung's UI is irrelevant when they have a theme engine.

That's a JOKE of a theme engine. Can't customize anything at all. Not clocks, icons, dialers nothing. Try HTC before you talk about themes or just don't. Irrelevant my butt. Their themes are even worse than the default
