Rumors has it, regarding what the Taiwanese OEM, HTC has in store for its customers following the release of the HTC U-Play and the HTC U Ultra in January at the CES 2017.
The tech company which regretted its choice of the processor on the twin device, however, revealed that it would be bringing a premium variant of the device into the market sporting the Sapphire glass protection along with a hint that it will much later bring a flagship device which will run on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.
The tech company has since released pre-orders and orders for the Sapphire glass variant of the device, but all eyes are trained on what it has to offer in terms of its flagship device. There have been several rumors however which suggests that the company is bringing the HTC 11 into the market under the code name HTC U (Ocean) but the tech company has kept its mouth sealed as regards what to expect although indications suggest that the device will feature premium range and top of the line specs.
In line with this, recent sightings have confirmed that the tech company is planning a major launch soon and it’s an HTC U. The Taiwanese OEM announced that it would be holding an event on May 16 and has since been taunting the flyer which suggests that it will unveil an HTC device, most probably, the much rumored HTC U Ocean.
The tech company in its flier released ahead of the event showed the U logo along with an unmistakable tagline which reads “ squeeze for the brilliant U.” The tagline, however, suggests more as there had been rumors that the HTC U will come into the market sporting pressure sensitive edges but all will be confirmed at the May 16 event scheduled to hold at 2:00 am (Eastern time) and 2:00 pm (in Taipei).
Not much is known of the HTC U which we expect to be unveiled at the event, but that which we know is that the device will come into market sporting a rumored 5.5-inch screen along with a screen resolution pegged at 2560 x 1440 and under the hood feature the latest Snapdragon 835 processor. On the camera front, the HTC U is expected to come into the market sporting a 16MP sensor on the front panel and the rear panel for the primary camera, a possible 12 MP sensor.
The device is expected to come running with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and feature a sleek and super high-gloss finish as featured on the HTC U Ultra device.
Not much is known of the pressure sensitive squeeze feature yet, but that will be solved soon enough.
