HTC U23 Pro announced: Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, 108MP camera, and 120Hz screen

HTC has officially unveiled the HTC U23 Pro which leaked earlier this month. It’s built around a 6.7″ FullHD+ OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass Victus’ protection. The display has a centered punch hole for the 32MP selfie camera, but it doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner underneath since that’s embedded in the power button on the phone’s right-side frame.

Around the back, we get a rectangular camera island housing flash and four cameras – 108MP primary (with OIS), 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth.

Under the hood, the HTC U23 Pro has the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC with 8GB or 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. It also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion and runs Android 13 out of the box.

The HTC U23 Pro comes pre-installed with the VIVERSE app and is compatible with the VIVE XR Elite mixed reality headset, which is sold separately. Moreover, the U23 Pro has IP67 dust and water resistance, and fueling the entire package is a 4,600 mAh battery with 30W wired charging and 15W wireless charging. It also supports reverse wireless charging.

The rest of the HTC U23 Pro’s highlights include 5G support, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, NFC, USB-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
