HTC has been teasing the arrival of a new smartphone, and now its launch date is official. The company confirmed that the device will arrive on May 18, so in a couple of days.
The HTC U23 Pro is coming on May 18, the company brand new smartphone
This is an HTC U series smartphone, as it will allegedly be called the HTC U23 Pro. The last HTC U series phone that got announced was the HTC U20 5G. That device arrive back in June 2020.
That was a mid-range smartphone, and this upcoming device won’t exactly include a flagship SoC either, it seems. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC is rumored, which is Qualcomm’s mid-range offering.
An AMOLED display is also expected, with a 120Hz refresh rate. The device will include at least 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. You’ll also get a headphone jack here, it will sit at the top of the device.
It will include a 108-megapixel main camera, and offer some sort of VR support
A 4,600mAh battery is also expected, as is a 108-megapixel main camera. That is basically all the spec info that we have on this phone at the moment. Android 13 will be pre-installed on the device.
One thing to note is that HTC is using the ‘Viveverse’ branding with this smartphone’s teasers. That basically means this phone will offer some sort of VR support.
We also know what the phone will look like, thanks to Evan Blass. He shared images of the phone, albeit rather tiny ones. You can check out the device in two different color options in the gallery below.
White and brown colors are shown here, and as you can see, there are quite a few camera sensors included on the back. A display camera hole sits on the front, while the bottom bezel is noticeably thicker than the rest of them.
Everything will be revealed in only a couple of days, so stay tuned for that. May 18 is the day.
