Why are all manufacturers making huge slabs now? You can't use a phone with 5.5" effortlessly with 1 hand, by just moving your thumb and you only get the best features in phones over 5.2" Putting the huge slab against the ear looks quite stupid too.
HTC is going against the grain and betting big on bezels. First ultra and now this. Big screen, big bezels = giant phone. I hope this pressure sensitive thing is not just a gimmick, otherwise hard to see anyone choosing this over others in same price range
Come on HTC, you must be at parallel level with the S8 s & XZ Premium on the specs sheet.

Theres nothing on the side so we c... morewe need a lot of power these days, HTC 10 has only 66 hours of endurance rating with 5.2" display, hTC U will not surpass this number, means poor battery life. need to charge the phone now and then. we don't need a 16 MP front camera too, 8 MP is more than enough. we need a decent camera.
After M8 I missed HTC's design language
U = another "Samsung+iPhone" combination

I had a HTC Desire v many years ago and it had a good screen, apart from slow processor, I do remember it had only A-Gps which was very slow
Hephaestus8, 03 Apr 2017What slides?http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_u_...ws-24343.php
Hephaestus8, 03 Apr 2017What slides?the first image in the story
sohail shafayat, 03 Apr 2017look at the slides it's only 3000 mAh for a 5.5" WQHDWhat slides?
It's a big mistake for htc company.its samsung design just like u ultra,just have a look to back of galaxy s6 and u ultra it's the same.htc have the best modern and beautiful phone on m series (m7 m8 m9) sorry for my bad english
No infrared!!! no htc!!!
Go go HTC!! We want a good looking, high spec device. We want IP 68 rating too, because other flagships have them.
I also hope if indeed has 5.5 inch display the phone itself won't be that huge as an Iphone 7+.
Hephaestus8, 03 Apr 2017Where you see the battery capacity?look at the slides it's only 3000 mAh for a 5.5" WQHD
Sniper SX, 03 Apr 2017HTC 10 and now HTC U-turn? lol no NFC no wireless charging no water proofing no BOOMSPEAKERS. ... moreIt could cost more than iphone7+, s8, s8+,pixel and pixel plus.... At least Sony is not dying alone...
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017Damn, you're right, the info is misleading. And the speaker may be just one too. Can't they j... moreA few more things I dont see on the render is the volume rocker and power button. Wow! HTC got rid of power button and volume button. Fingerprint scanner is listed but I dont see it on the front, rear or even the side. Could it really be? Embedded fingerprint scanner? There is literally nothing on the sides except the speaker, charging port and sim card tray.
