On Thursday January 12th, HTC will officially unveil an array of new devices including; HTC U Ultra (HTC Ocean Note), HTC U Play (HTC Alpine) and HTC One X10 (HTC E66), which they all had their full specifications leaked online.
HTC U Play
The HTC U Play also known as HTC Alpine, is a mid range smartphone features a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, Helio P10 chipset along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. The HTC U is armed with 16MP primary and secondary cameras.
It also uses a 2,500mAh battery and employs a fingerprint reader at the front. Don’t expect to use your standard headphones with this upcoming device, because the HTC U Play lacks the support of the widely used 3.5mm headphone jack, instead, it uses a USB Type C connector. However, an audio adaptor is expected to ship with the HTC U Play inside the box.
HTC U Ultra
The HTC U Ultra, or you can call it HTC Ocean Note, whichever you choose doesn’t really change the fact that this device is a flagship smartphone and comes with top-of-the-line hardware specs such as; a 6.0-inch Quad-HD main screen with a second screen at the top, and the latest 10 nm chipset from Qualcomm; Snapdragon 835 (MSM8998). In addition to its powerful processor and super large display, the HTC U Ultra also comes with a generous amount of RAM and memory, 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB of internal memory.
HTC has armed the U Ultra phone with a dual rear camera which employs 24MP + 13MP lenses. There is also a good size 16MP front-facing camera, and a rather large 4,000mAh battery, assuming with Quick Charge technology delivered by the Qualcomm chipset. There is a fingerprint scanner which sits at the rear of the HTC U Ultra, and no, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, just like the HTC U Play, but you should get an adapter inside the box.
HTC One X10
Interestingly, the HTC One X10 comes with 3.5mm audio jack, unlike the other two devices, maybe because it’s not a ‘U’ branded device. Anyway, the HTC X10 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display which is powered by MediaTek Helio P10 processor. The octa-core chipset is assisted by 3GB of RAM to deliver a maximum performance. The HTC X10 is also armed with 32GB of internal storage, 4,000mAh battery, 16MP primary camera at the rear and an 8MP secondary camera at the front.The HTC U Ultra, HTC U Play and HTC X10 are expected to come pre-loaded with Google’s latest OS; Android 7 Nougat alongside HTC Sense UI. We will know the full details including the pricing on January 12th, so stick around if you don’t want to miss out!
