Initially, we believed that the HTC U Ultra was supposed to be the Taiwanese manufacturer’s flagship for 2017, but it seems that they’re planning to reveal a successor to last year’s HTC 10, going by the name of – yes, you guessed it, HTC 11.
The flagship will apparently make its debut somewhere in April, just in time to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8, and, even though there’s no official statement from HTC regarding this device, there are a lot of rumors about its presumed spec sheet!
To be more specific, the HTC 11 could sport a 5.2″ display, rocking a pretty interesting resolution: 1556 x 2550 pixels. The chipset of choice should be Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 835, alongside 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. For the moment, we don’t know if the phone will also have a microSD card slot.
In terms of camera, the trail is pretty cold, but we won’t be surprised if HTC decides to use its Ultra-Pixel technology once again. Also, we might as well see the Boom-Sound dual speaker setup once again, since it was a very popular feature among users of previous models.
Finally, let’s not forget about the operating system! The HTC 11 will come with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, Google’s latest release, out of the box. However, don’t expect vanilla Android, since the phone will, most likely, run Sense 9.0, the manufacturer’s latest user interface.
There aren’t any details about the price right now, but we don’t expect this flagship to be cheap, considering the price tags of the HTC U Ultra and U Play.
