HTC is holding an event on January 12th to unveil new smartphone(s). The “U” event is said to bring HTC U Ultra codenamed Ocean Note and presumably, HTC U codenamed Ocean. We have seen Ocean’s edge gestures in a leaked video, but it’s the time to see U Ultra in its full glory.
As you guys can see in the images, the U Ultra surprisingly comes with the Secondary display with AOD feature just like LG V20. The leaked images show similar secondary screen functionality as V20 since it’s displaying weather info and recent apps for quick toggle between various apps. On the back, I was honestly confused between U Ultra and Galaxy Note7.
The device leaked in four color options – Black, Blue, Rose Gold, and White. There is Dual LED flash on the back with Laser AF just beside it. The noise canceling microphone has been located at the bottom rear side of the device. The right side of the handset houses Volume rocker and textured power button. Top houses SIM slot and one more noise canceling microphone. Meanwhile, the bottom comes with USB-C port, another noise canceling microphone for calls and speaker grills.
Despite different color schemes, U Ultra seems to have got aluminum unibody design. The front of the device is expected to come with huge 6-inch QHD display and just below that you can see the capacitive home button, which is likely to be doubled as a fingerprint sensor. The oval shaped home button is flanked by back and recent apps capacitive keys.
The rumored specs said U Ultra would be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC, 24MP rear shooter, 16MP Selfie shooter, 4000mAh battery. However, we don’t think that Snapdragon 835 will power any smartphone before Galaxy S8, but it may change as Qualcomm announced SD 835 at CES 2017 last week.
