HTC is one brand that brought Android operating system to smartphones and also introduced use to sleek metal frames on phones. However, it has been off the track lately and messed up on latest U series launch as well. Although, now it is all set to change the tide with its upcoming flagship, HTC U. This handset has been trending on Internet quite a bit and looks quite promising from the looks of it. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who must be interested in this handset.
Snapdragon 835: Since this is a turning point of the brand, it is only natural for the handset to have the class leading spec sheet. And the brand does not disappoint as the upcoming handset will be seen flaunting the latest Snapdragon 835 processor. The processor will be accompanied with 4 GB of RAM and Adreno 540 GPU for a stunning performance.
Powerful cameras: HTC has always been a brand to reckon when it comes to the camera on its handsets. This time around as well, the new flagship will be seen flaunting a powerful 12 Megapixels snapper on the rear panel. For some reason, HTC has made this smartphone a selfie centric device, with 16 Megapixels unit on the front. Both cameras are expected to perform like a champ since the camera module is a Sony Exmor unit.
Edge sensors: This time around, rumours has it that the new flagship will be devoid of any kind of physical buttons. It is being speculated that the handset maker has incorporated sensors in its metal sides, which can read gestures and perform tasks like volume up and down, shutting down and starting up the device. This would drastically enhance the whole aesthetics of the handset with a unhindered streamlined design all along.
HTC Boomsound: This is the proprietary audio enhancement technology from the brand, which has been revered by fans of the brand since long. The audio technology will also come equipped in the next flagship from the brand and will appeal to music lovers.
Edge sense might take some getting used to: While the handset definitely seems to be a giant leap in terms of the innovation, however, there seems to be a catch. There seems to be a learning curve to getting used to edge sensors on this device. Since everyone of us is used to physical buttons, it will be slightly awkward in the beginning.
