HTC U Ocean to come with Sense 9: New features

HTC U Ocean to come with Sense 9: new features
HTC is back, baby! After a year of ups and downs, the company announced its U smartphone line two months ago, and is now ready to release them with all of its new features, which you will now know. The devices will feature the newest HTC user interface, Sense 9, and will come with a variety of improvements over last year's Sense 8 while bringing new features.

They will also release the HTC U, codenamed "Ocean" along the two already announced. It will come with a 5.5" QHD screen, the Snapdragon 835, but its most innovative feature will be Edge Sense, a set of sensors that lets you customize actions like swiping.

This means the HTC U will have a touch sensitive frame all around its screen, possibly becoming one of the most innovative smartphones of the year. Oh, and VentureBeat also reports it will come with a new Sony sensor in its camera. HTC is expected to unveil the U in April, with launch scheduled for May.

Thoughts? Can HTC win your heart again?


Do you support Smartphone leaks?

As you all may know, the Galaxy S8 has been the most leaked device in recent history. But it's not the first time this happens. It has happened to Apple, HTC, LG and even to Google with its Pixel phones.

Supposedly, companies hate leaks and want to prevent them. Other times, they just leak things themselves to get the media's attention. But there's a thin line between this and sometimes these companies act hypocritical. Other times it's obviously them leaking this stuff.

I know sometimes it ruins the whole anticipation, but other times it's what excites readers about new products and makes them buy it after released. Like the GS8, which will break sales records when released, or even the iPhone 6 and 7 which had leaked so much that even clones were on sale before they were released! 

Some people look at us, the tech blogs, and think we are the evil guys here ruining companies' plans. But we are journalists, we have to report whatever pops up. Interestingly, I just read a poll on Samsung's fan club and they were asking what their readers thought about leaks. And the results were amazing. More than 60% of their readers support leaks.

So...what do you think guys? Are you in favor of leaks? Vote and leave a comment!
