HTC U23 Pro Is Now Official With 108MP Camera and 120Hz Screen


HTC U23 Pro

HTC has finally unrolled the curtains on the HTC U23 Pro. This is the first U-series phone that was released after the U20 5G. And in case you didn’t know, HTC launched the U20 5G back in 2020.

But the real question is, did HTC make the right decisions with the U23 Pro? Well, the phone specs leaked earlier this month. That leak suggested that the device would come with great mid-range specs. And with the official unveiling today, it seems the leak was accurate.

HTC U23 Pro Main Highlights

Configuration-wise, one of the main highlights of the HTC U23 Pro is the 6.7-inch FHD+ screen. It is an OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. HTC has opted for Gorilla Glass Victus for protection. So, you can expect the screen to easily withstand regular abuse.

On the top of the display, you have a centered punch hole, which houses a 32MP selfie camera. And even though the HTC U23 Pro comes with an OLED panel, it does not have an in-display fingerprint scanner. Instead, the fingerprint scanner is embedded within the power button.

To be honest, that’s a bad thing. Physical fingerprint scanners are faster and more reliable than in-display ones. And as HTC U23 Pro has the scanner on the power button, accessing the scanner will not be an issue either.

Moving on, the HTC U23 Pro gets a rectangular camera island on the back. It houses four cameras and a flash module. Among the four sensors, there’s a 108MP, 5MP macro, 8MP ultrawide, and 2MP depth camera. In other words, HTC has opted for a pretty balanced camera setup for the back.

You will not be disappointed with the build of the HTC U23 Pro. It has an IP67 rating, making it resistant to dust and water.

Performance, Price, and Other Specs

Under the hood, the HTC U23 Pro packs the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. Although this chipset is fairly modern and can offer great mid-range performance, I would have liked to see the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset. In comparison, the 7+ Gen 2 offers much better performance than the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

But the good news is that HTC has paired the SoC with up to 12GB of RAM. So, you should get a smooth multitasking experience with it. On that note, the base model has 8GB of RAM, which is also sufficient for day-to-day apps and games.

Nonetheless, no matter which version you get, the storage is fixed at 256GB. And as the HTC U23 Pro comes with a dedicated microSD card slot, you have the full freedom to expand the storage if you want to.

When it comes to software, the HTC U23 Pro ships with Android 13 out of the box. It also ships with the VIVERSE app and is compatible with the VIVE XR Elite mixed-reality headset.

HTC U23 Pro Battery Specs

A 4600 mAh battery fuels the internals of the device. And the great part is that the battery can charge at 30W in wired mode and 15W in the wireless model. There’s also support for reverse wireless charging, letting you juice up accessories when you are in a pickle. Other than that, the HTC U23 Pro has 5G support, NFC, USB-C, WiFi 6 connectivity, and a 3.5mm headphone.

That said, the phone is available in two different colors. And as hinted earlier, there are two memory configurations too. As per the official Taiwanese listing, the 8GB/256GB variant goes for TWD 16,990, and the 12GB/256GB is TWD 17,990. That’s around $550/INR 45,505/€510 and $585/INR48,185/€540 respectively. And we are yet to learn about the pricing and availability in other markets.
