We have already known that HTC is not going to launch the HTC 11 this year which would have been the sucessor to last year’s mildly popular flagship phone from HTC, the HTC 10. But as per the tradition from HTC to launch one flagship phone for 2017, the company will launch the HTC U which will be company’s flagship phone for 2017. HTC hasn’t had the best of times when it comes to launch of their phones in 2017, HTC launched the HTC U Ultra at the start of this year but the phone was not received well at all. All the reviewers worlwide gave some negative reviews to the phone and we haven’t heard anything about the phone since then. Now it seems that HTC is trying to shift focus onto the HTC U.
There was already a leaked video showing an HTC flagship phone codenamed “HTC Ocean”. This video was leaked by the popular leakster @evleaks. It was evident from the video that the HTC Ocean will carry a touch sensitive construction. Now we have a leaked image of the HTC U smartphone which the company will be launching later this year. The image has been leaked by the popular leakster @evleaks who has posted the image on his twitter profile.

Posted above is the tweet from Evan Blass which shows the design of the phone. This phone has a single camera on the back and an LED flash along with the same back design as one found on the HTC U Ultra. This phone looks much like last year’s Pixel by Google. The only difference between the two phones could be the fingerprint scanner which could be found on the HTC U. As for the specifications, HTC U will come with Sense 9 and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It will also have a 12 MP IMX362 Sony sensor for the main camera and a 16 MP IMX351 on the front. It’ll come in 64 GB and 128 GB models with microSD expansion and feature a 5.5-inch QHD display
