The follow-up to last year’s HTC 10 will be called the HTC U 11 which is codenamed the HTC Ocean and will be unveiled at a launch event May 16th. The official unveiling of the next HTC flagship has already been public, but the speculation is still out on the naming moniker.
HTC has done a tremendous job keeping the name of the follow-up to the HTC 10 under-wraps, but after new leaks emerged it seems like our suspicions have finally been confirmed. Of course, take this with a grain of sale, but it makes sense considering HTC has already stated they will continue with the U series with upcoming flagships.
HTC U 11 Specs and Features
We’ve also uncovered the following which seem to be the specs and features of the HTC U 11:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
- 5.5-inch QHD display
- 4 GB RAM
- 12-MP primary camera
- 8-MP secondary camera
- Pressure sensitive surround
It comes as no surprise HTC will be electing to go with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor which is being heralded as the next gen SoC which will be powering many 2017 Android smartphones. Samsung is the most recent as both versions of the Galaxy S8 debuted with the next gen processor and it’s proved to be much faster and more efficient than Apple’s newest processor powering the iPhone 7.
It also sounds like HTC will will be using something called pressure sensitive edges in the U 11 concept. This will be the highlight feature which will allow users to snap photos or scroll web pages by simply pressing the edges of the phone.
HTC’s hoping the HTC U 11 will help get them back to where they once were, and after the HTC 10 last year they definitely have to do something big. We’ll surely have more after the May 16th unveiling and we’ll continue to update you when we get more.
