HTC U23 Pro debuts as new midrange option with Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and 120 Hz OLED display
HTC has introduced the U23 Pro in Taiwan, the only member of the U23 series for now. As expected, the U23 Pro features a 6.7-inch OLED display, which operates at 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and 120 Hz with a 393 PPI pixel density. According to HTC, the large display sits within a 166.6 x 77.1 x 8.9 mm chassis. In other words, the U23 Pro has an 84.4% screen-to-body ratio, with a comparatively thick bottom bezel.
HTC protects the large display with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, behind which sits a 32 MP front-facing camera that can record videos at up to 1080p/30 FPS. Additionally, HTC equips the U23 Pro with a 108 MP primary camera supported by OIS, as well as 8 MP ultra-wide-angle, 5 MP macro and 2 MP depth cameras. Moreover, the handset combines a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset with a 4,600 mAh battery that supports 30 W wired, 15 W wireless and 5 W reverse wireless charging.
Surprisingly, the U23 Pro has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, despite featuring an OLED display. Also, HTC has included a MicroSD card reader, a 3.5 mm jack, Android 13 and its VIVERSE app for connecting with the VIVE XR Elite headset. HTC has not confirmed whether it intends to offer the U23 Pro outside Taiwan, where it is available in two colour options. For reference, HTC sells the U23 Pro at the following configurations and prices in its home market:
- 8 GB RAM/256 GB storage - TWD$16,990 (~US$552)
- 12 GB RAM/256 GB storage - TWD$17,990 (~US$584)
