After the cheap Wildfire E2 Play last month, HTC officially unveiled the new top model HTC U23 Pro. At its heart is a 6.7-inch FullHD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass Victus protection. The display has a central 32-megapixel selfie camera, but no fingerprint sensor, which is integrated into the power button.
On the back is a rectangular camera module with four cameras and the LED flash. These include the 108-megapixel main camera with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The HTC U23 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset with 8 or 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. There is also a microSD card slot for storage expansion and Android 13 as the operating system.
HTC U23 Pro comes preinstalled with the Viverse app because it is compatible with the Vive XR Elite mixed reality headset, sold separately. In addition, the U23 Pro is dust and waterproof according to IP67. The power supply is provided by a 4,600 mAh battery that charges with 30 watts via cable and 15 watts wirelessly. Reverse wireless charging is also supported. Other features include 5G support, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, USB-C and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
HTC U23 Pro comes in two colors and storage configurations – 8/256GB and 12/256GB. The prices are TWD16,990 ($550/€510/INR45,505) and TWD17,990 ($585/€540/INR48,185). So far, it’s only available in Taiwan through HTC’s official website, but will later be sold internationally as well.
