The new HTC will feature Edge Sense, the pressure sensitive sides of the U11, along with HTC USonic (aka USB-C headphones and no 3.5mm jack). The HTC Ocean Life will be among the first to feature Bluetooth 5.0 (great for its increased range).

The camera setup seems identical to the U Play – 16MP sensors on both the front and back. However, it will come with newer software, Android 7.1.1 and Sense 9.0, and battery capacity is up a notch at 2,600mAh.

Thanks for the tip, Mat!
