HTC’s upcoming flagship level smartphone which is due to be announced on May 16th will be called the HTC U 11 says leaker Evan Blass in a new report.
The report comes from information gleaned from ‘an individual briefed on company plans’ who says the phone will be named the HTC U 11 in order to bridge the naming conventions from last years HTC 10, and this years new HTC U series phones.
As well as the name, Evan has also said that HTC intends to release the phone in ‘five different color schemes’ – one of those colours may be the red option that showed up recently thanks to /slashleaks:
Evan is the source behind previous leaks on the HTC U 11, which have said the phone will come with a 5.5″ QHD display and be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor. Other specs for the phone include 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of on-board storage with a 3,000mAh battery powering it. A 12MP Sony Exmor camera sensor will be on the rear, while a 16MP sensor will be on the front.
The big feature for the HTC U 11 launch is the squeezable feature which HTC are teasing in their save the date teases which say the phone will be announced on May 16th.
