The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC has launched with the two models U Ultra as well as U Play a new series, which is to replace the old one series. But the devices could not convince the majority of the reviews.
The Android smartphones can performance and optically only conditionally with the models of the competition. But apparently, HTC is planning to release a real flagship later in the year. The Evan Blass ( Evleaks ), known for his Leaks, has now published a first image of the HTC U, which was previously known under the code “Ocean”.
The picture shows a mix of the two smartphones U Play and U Ultra. Moreover, at first glance, there are no real innovations in the design of the device. The glass back of the HTC U Play turned out to be a little everyday, as this looks visually interesting, but is very vulnerable to dirt.
Sense Touch Ocean in video
More than three months ago, an advertising video was leaked to the HTC ‘Ocean’, which shows a concept called “Sense Touch” for operating the device. This is a touch-sensitive frame by means of which, among other things, scrolling messages are made possible. Also, it was already announced that the HTC U should show a strong data sheet. In the upcoming flagship smartphone, for example, a Snapdragon 835 as well as a 12-megapixel camera are used.
However, it remains unclear whether the published graphics are actually a picture of the new smartphone. Since so far no official confirmation from HTC is done, can only be speculated about the authenticity. Nevertheless, the Leaks of Evan Blass can be classified as trustworthy, as these have in most cases proved true.
