HTC is reportedly working on a mid-range smartphone which would possibly be a part of its recently launched U series. The smartphone in question is codenamed ‘Ocean Life’ and appears to be an upgraded variant of the HTC U Play in terms of its leaked specifications. HTC had launched the U Play along with the U Ultra earlier this year.

This information comes from leakster LlabTooFeR who posted detailed specifications of the HTC Ocean Life on Twitter. For a mid-range smartphone, the Ocean Life comes with quite impressive specifications. According to the leak, the HTC Ocean Life will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD (1080p) display, and Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood. In the photography department, the Ocean Life will sport a 16-megapixel camera on the front and the back as well. The HTC U Play too comes with the same display size, and camera options.

The Ocean Life will be fuelled by a 2,600mAh battery, and will come with the latest Bluetooth 5.0 support. On the software front, it will run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. Additionally, the smartphone is said to feature Sense 9.0 UI, which hasn’t been officially released by HTC yet. Like the other U smartphones, the Ocean Life is said to come without a 3.5mm audio jack, and users will be compensated with HTC’s USB Type-C headphones, the USonic.
