HTC U release date set for May 16

Posted April 20, 2017

An invite dropped into INQ's inbox on Thursday, confirming that the so-called HTC U will see an official unveiling on 16 May.

The handset is expected to feature "Edge Sense" technology, thanks to sensors embedded into its outer edges.

An earlier leak depicted that that user needs to short squeeze the Edge Sense in order to perform tasks like launch Camera, Google Assistant, HTC Sense Companion, or even turning on the Wi-Fi Hotspot.

HTC has sent out invites for a media event on 16 May 2017 to take place at 2pm in Taipei, 2am in NY and 7pm in London.

HTC has confirmed the unveiling of its new flagship phone to the world - the HTC U - on May 16. The company has been known for their innovative design and good-looking smartphones.

Gimmicky features aside, the HTC U, codenamed "Ocean", looks set to give the Galaxy S8 a run for its money in the specifications department.

Since the event is nearly a month away, the company is expected to tease more features of HTC U in coming days.

Now, with HTC U also made available, the smartphone maker is hoping to regain some lost ground with aggressive sales and expansion strategy.

Recollecting some key specifications, the device will come loaded with a 5.5-inch WQHD display with 3D Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

In terms of hardware power, HTC has chosen Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 CPU.

Like the two previously released models, the HTC U could also come with 4GB RAM, offering 64GB/128GB of internal storage option.
