HTC has an event coming up this Thursday 12, 2017 and if rumors are to be believed, the company is lining up at least two phones to be launched at this event.
A teaser is already out there and from the looks of things, HTC has two impressive phones for U. There have been talks of an HTC U Ultra (HTC Ocean Note) and HTC U Play (HTC Alpine) in the works but little has been coming out with respect to their specs and features.
Notorious leaker @OnLeaks had been at it, coming in with dotted details about the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play handsets. Apparently, the only concrete info that has come out regards their display sizes and audio connectivity, with the U Ultra reportedly coming with a 6-inch screen as compared to the 5.2-inch panel touted for the U Play. However, both phones will be dropping the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack like it already happened with the HTC Bolt (HTC 10 Evo).
In a new series of leaks, the HTC U Play will be shipping with a 5.2-inch Full HD screen. However, the phone will be powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor that is paired with a RAM of 3GB and inbuilt storage of 32GB. On camera matters, you will love the HTC U Play and its 16MP sensors on both the front and back panels, something that resembles the new Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 2017 models. The battery unit is not that bad at 2600mAh and despite being a midrange phone, you get a fingerprint scanner on the front.
As far as the HTC U Ultra is concerned, this device will be a flagship packed with high-end specs. You will reportedly come across the earlier-mentioned 6-inch display screen with a WQHD resolution. Under the hood, this phablet will be shipping with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor that is paired with a decent 4GB RAM. This processor has not been released just yet, meaning the HTC U Ultra may take some time before coming, probably as the first phone to be powered by the SoC this 2017, ahead of the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Xiaomi Mi 6, among others.
The rumor further notes that the HTC U Ultra will also be coming in with a 64GB of onboard storage while the cameras will be even more impressive than the HTC U Play. Apparently, the U Ultra will come with a dual-lens camera setup on the back featuring 24MP+13MP snappers while the front will ship with a 16MP sensor similar to the midrange U Play. Given its huge size and WQHD resolution, the HTC U Ultra also gets a larger 4000mAh battery unit alongside a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Since these are just rumors, take them with a grain of salt. But since HTC is just two days away from holding the January 12 event, we should be able to know more about these two phones then. Keep following us for the latest rumors, news and updates regarding the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play.
