A mysterious HTC device has surfaced online with a whole bunch of live photos and some hardware info. The following trio of model numbers is mentioned - 2QC9200, 2QC9100, and 2QCB100, as well as a potential name for the device – the HTC U23 Pro 5G.
Some of the specs highlights include an AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The phone is also said to have a 108MP main camera with OIS and a total of four cameras on the back. It is powered by a 4,600 mAh battery with wireless charging and seems to run Android 13. Also on the list of specs is a 3.5mm audio jack positioned on the phone's top bezel.
The source also mentions that the device's back cover and middle frame are made from plastic. We can also see a photo of the phone's power button, which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
By all accounts, this seems to be an engineering unit in the very early stages of development, so anything regarding pricing or availability would be pure speculation at this point. Hopefully, the U23 Pro eventually comes to market.
Is this phone on the market
Hopefully they swap out the Snpadragon Gen 7 1 with the Gen 7 2 chip. The second gen chipset has 4k60 support while the first doesn't, which makes the first gen chip kind of useless.
