Earlier today we received a blurry image of an HTC phone leaked by well known leakster Evan Blass. His tweet simply said "U saw it here first". With the emphasis being the "U". While HTC released a "flagship phone at the beginning of the year it was not met with much enthusiasm. Most media outlets had complaints regarding the use of space in the HTC U Ultra.
HTC's real flagship this year has been rumored as the HTC Ocean, but is expected to release as the HTC U without the "Ultra" moniker. The leaked image today shows a similar design to what we saw on the U Ultra with the fingerprint scanner/home button being placed on the front. The phone in the leaked image also has large bezels especially when compared to the new flagships from LG and Samsung.
The phone will feature a touch sensor on the edge of the phone. It should feature a Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm, 12MP IMX362 Sony sensor for the rear camera with a 16MP IMX351 Sony sensor on the front facing camera. There are expected to be 64GB and 128GB models both with microSD card slots for storage expansion. It will also feature a 5.5" QHD display. The phone is expected to launch near the end of April.
