While the HTC U Ultra wasn’t the most impressive device, the HTC U AKA the HTC Ocean could right the HTC ship. We’ve seen leaks before and now it’s shown up in a new image
The phone has been leaked again by Evan Blass, showing a black slab of a phone, though there’s nothing to hint at the ‘Edge Sense’ smarts that will allow you to map functions to squeeze gestures on the sides of the phones.
The HTC U in the image has few distinctive features, a fingerprint sensor on the front, and a camera and LED Flash on the rear. There’s a volume rocker and power button on the side and that’s about all you can see.

According to his last post on the phone, the HTC U will come with a 5.5″ WQHD (2560×1440) resolution display, and be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor. The U will come with either 64GB or 128GB storage options and possibly a microSD card slot. The U will come running Android 7.1 Nougat with HTC Sense 9.
HTC will be making strides with their cameras, with a 12MP Sony IMX362 sensor on the rear (with an LED Flash as per above) and a 16MP Sony IMX351 sensor on the front.
According to Mr Blass, the phone be announced later this month before making its appearance on the streets in early May.
