Once upon a time, HTC was one of the most prolific players in the smartphone industry. They also made some of the best and hottest devices in the market. The brand has since been reduced to being a niche player that releases new phones every now and then.

The company has announced a new phone, the U24 Pro. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset places it squarely in upper midrange territory, very close to premium flagship class. The rest of the specs are exciting though. There is 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. It runs Android 14.

HTC U24 Pro

HTC U24 Pro is a large phone with a 6.8″ 1080×2436 OLED display.woth 120Hz refresh rate and a sheet of Corning’s Gorilla Glass on it. Embedded in a punch hole at the top of the display is an impressive (at least on paper) 50 MP front-facing camera for selfies. We will have to see what real life performance is like.

At the back of the HTC U24 Pro is a triple camera configuration that includes a 50 MP main camera with OIS, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and a 50 MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom. Like I said above, exciting specs.

This phone has a 4600 mAh battery – that’s a little on the small size, considering the large 6.8″ display, so don’t expect the best of battery life (unless HTC pulls of an optimisation surprise). For charging, it has two options – 60W fast wired charging and 15W wireless charging. You can also use it as a power bank for charging other devices with 5W wireless charging.

The body is the U24 Pro has an IP67 dust and water resistance rating, meaning that it can handle splashes of water and dust. Besides being big, the HTC U24 Pro is a thick phone, measuring 8.98 mm. That is almost 9 mm. It weighs 198.7g.

Did I mention that HTC included a 3.5mm headphone jack? Which is a breath of fresh air in a world where many brands are getting rid of the feature. HTC really went hard on this one. Have a look at the detailed specs below.

Where is the AI?

If you are wondering whether HTC U24 Pro has AI (artificial intelligence) integrated anywhere, it does. For starters, the camera app is AI-enhanced, and so is the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset. In all, this is an attractive device (minus the size and weight).

The €564 price tag isn’t encouraging though. For that price, you will find more competitive alternatives in the market. HTC U24 Pro will be available in the European Union. Availability elsewhere is yet to be confirmed.
