Check out the first renders of HTC U, the Snapdragon 835 powered flagship from HTC

HTC introduced the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play back in January. The HTC U is actually the HTC Ocean series of smartphones which was leaked earlier. The Flagship smartphone from HTC for 2017 was teased as HTC Ocean. Three devices​ were supposedly coming to us under the HTC Ocean series

So in the HTC U series , the company is planning to add a new family member. The latest upcoming smartphone from HTC will be called as the HTC U, a true Flagship for 2017. It will be powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. There​ will be some innovative software features like Sense Edge with HTC Sense 9 UI.

But now we have got one more step closer to the HTC U. The latest leak shows is the very first HD renders of HTC U from top and bottom angles. The device has 5.4-inch QHD display on the front covered with a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Speakers are located at the bottom with the USB Type-C port sitting in between the speaker grills. Fingerprint scanner is missing from the latest leaked renders which could be a mistake. The camera module is circular and has dual tone dual LED Flash adjacent to it. On the top, it has SIM tray and secondary microphone​. There is no button on the left and right sides of the smartphone. On the front-bottom, we have got HTC branding.
