The end of April was a whirlwind of info for HTC‘s upcoming and oft-rumored next flagship smartphone. We know it will be unveiled on May 16, that it will probably be called the HTC U 11, and that HTC is busy teasing the Edge Sense feature well ahead of its unveiling.
Now, thanks to a recent listing for the upcoming handset by MySmartPrice, the features of the upcoming handset may have found their way online before HTC can make anything official. The part that stands out this time around is that HTC is going a bit more competitive with this device than with the U Ultra.
If the leaked info is accurate, then the HTC U 11 will boast a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood with 6GB of RAM. The display will measure in at 5.5 inches and feature Quad HD resolution as well as Corning Gorilla Glass 5. On the back of the U 11 will be a 12-megapixel UltraPixel 3 camera with f/1.7 aperture. There’s a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with “Selfie Panorama” and an f/2.0 aperture.
The U 11 will indeed feature Edge Sense, which will allow owners to squeeze the phone to launch apps and more. HTC BoomSound will be on board, there’s a microSD card slot for expandable storage up to 2TB (on top of the 64GB/128GB built-in storage variants). Finally, the U 11 will also be IP57-rated for water resistance.
HTC plans to unveil the U 11 on May 16, so we don’t have long to wait before this new handset sees the light of day. Are you looking forward to it?
