  • The touch sensitive HTC U leaked: looks like the HTC U Ultra

As revealed in a VentureBeat report published late last month, the HTC U (codenamed Ocean) will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC, the same chip that powers the North American variants of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. We confidently say this, after a popular leakster, Evan Blass posted the same on his twitter handle.

Simply known as the HTC U the device will be have Gorilla Glass on both the front and back and by the look of a leaked image it will look remarkably like the new HTC U Ultra. However, this new image is different from what we have seen before.

Unfortunately, these leaked photos don't show off Edge Sense, which is expected to be one of the highlight features of the HTC U. With it, you'll reportedly be able to squeeze the sides of the phone or swipe the left or right sides to launch apps.

The HTC U will be best known for its touch sensitive frame which will gives users an additional means to control actions on the device. It has been reported the Ocean will have high-end specs such as a 5.5-inch display along with a Quad HD resolution.

Microsoft Surface CloudBook Could Be It's Answer to Google Chromebook
With that presumption comes the rumors that Microsoft will be highlighting its forthcoming Windows 10 Cloud product at the event. At the same event they announced, the company may introduce us to a new product wearing the name Microsoft Surface CloudBook.

HTC U will run the latest Android OS, namely the Nougat 7.1, and will have their own Sense Home UI featured on top of that.

On the camera front, the upcoming HTC U smartphone is expected to come with a pretty much similar camera specifications like that of the HTC U Ultra. At the front of the smartphone, we will find a bezel-less display and a fingerprint sensor at the base of it, as well as an earpiece and a camera.

HTC is widely believed to be planning something big for its next-generation flagship device.

Keep in mind that this is just a preliminary look at the HTC U, as the real life product will probably end up looking a lot more polished.
