HTC U to feature Bluetooth 5.0

HTC U to feature Bluetooth 5.0
The other day, serial tipster Evan Blass revealed an image allegedly showing off HTC's next flagship phone, the HTC U (2PZCxxx). According to another active source by the name of Roland Quandt, the device has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group). The tweet disseminated by Quandt (whose Twitter handle is @rquandt) reveals that Bluetooth 5.0 will be aboard the phone.

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.
