The rest of the specs include a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.5-inch Super LCD display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 835 SoC is under the hood with an octa-core 2.45GHz CPU, and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and a 16MP selfie snapper can be found on the front of the handset.
HTC is not known for providing its top-shelf phones with high capacity batteries. But after launching the mid-range HTC One X10 in Russia last week and stuffing it with a 4000mAh battery, there is hope that HTC will load up its flagship phone with a similarly well-endowed battery.
According to a series of tweets sent by ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, the HTC U will carry an IP57 certification rating. That will allow the handset to be submerged in water as deep as 3.2-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. In addition, the HTC U will be bereft of the 3.5mm earphone jack, and will be available in single SIM and dual SIM models.
There is no word on when we might see the HTC U officially unveiled by the manufacturer.

One thing I wish HTC could improve on the weights of the phones. They are usually 30+ grams heavier than the similar specs Samsung phones. I know other manufacturers make heavy phone, but I wish HTC could do better.

HTC has never had a good camera, just ok cameras. The M7 was HTC's best phone. Husband loved his and even after the phone was over 2 years old and the camera got the purple screen HTC fixed it free and paid all shipping.

So they announce the phone May 16th and release it when? September? I am not even joking. Isn't that the time line they followed with the U ultra? It does sound good on paper. This article doesn't mention battery size, but another had mentioned a 3000 mAh battery, unconfirmed, of course. If it is a 4000 mAh, then HTC will have done a great job. Looking forward to future leaks.
