Check out the latest rumored specs and features of the HTC U

Check out the latest rumored specs and features of the HTC U
Just a couple of days ago, we showed you renders allegedly revealing the HTC U. According to serial tipster Evan Blass, this is going to be HTC's next flagship phone. The renders that surfaced on Saturday showed a device without any buttons at all, and no 3.5mm earphone jack. This morning, the latest rumored specs of the handset surfaced. If legit, the phone will come with a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.5-inch screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution.

Look under the hood, and you should find the Snapdragon 835 chipset containing an octa-core CPU, and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB/6GB of RAM will be inside along with 64GB/128GB of native storage. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. A fingerprint scanner will be embedded in the home button, and the HTC U will come with Android 7.1 pre-installed. There is no 3.5mm jack as we mentioned before, but there is a Type-C USB port and dual stereo speakers (one on top and the other on bottom).

According to some leaked images, the HTC U will reportedly employ USonic technology. This allows users to plug an analog headphone into the USB-C port and customize an audio profile based on their unique ear canal. A feature called the HTC Sense Link will allow notifications from the phone to show up on a PC. And Edge Sensor uses a long or short squeeze on the side of the phone to open the camera, activate Google Assistant or run other functions using one hand.

A feature dubbed HDR+ will allow HTC U users to see how a photo will look with HDR enabled before the picture is snapped. And with four microphones on board, there are two different sound settings for audio capture while creating a video. 3D Audio will be the default setting, and  it uses all four mikes to record in surround-sound. The other recording option, Hi-Res audio, promises a full-range of lossless sound.

According to Blass, the phone will be unveiled later this month and launched early next month.
