The Upcoming HTC ‘Ocean’ Leaks From Head to Toe


Back in January, we highlighted that a new HTC device going by the codename “Ocean” had been spotted. Unfortunately, that device turned out to be the HTC U Ultra.

Today, the leaks are back. HTC ‘Ocean’ is on its way and thanks to Android Headlines, we have access to the complete product presentation. The presentation literally reveals everything to know about the device. The HTC ‘Ocean’ is expected to be announced in two weeks or less.

From the presentation, we learn that the HTC ‘Ocean’ will come with a 5.5″ QHD display, covered in Gorilla Glass 5. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM (with a 6GB RAM variant), 64 or 128GB of internal storage.

The device will also feature a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 and a front-mounted fingerprint reader, integrated into the physical home button.

Other impressive features include the Edge Sense, that lets the user interact with the device by squeezing it in your hand. The feature supports different levels of pressure, which suggests you can do more than one action with it.

The device will come with 4 microphones, for an immersive 3D audio. BoomSound will also be present, however there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.

The presentation also reveals that the phone includes a feature called Sense Link, which is meant to allow the user interact with the phone from their laptop or desktop. With the HTC Sense Link PC client, users can easily copy and paste content between the phone and the computer, see phone notifications on the computer and continue reading an article on the PC that one may have been started on the phone.

Sense Companion will be making a return. Sense Companion is HTC’s own AI assistant, which made a début on the HTC U Play and the HTC U Ultra.
