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 squeeze feature will allow users to assign a function to either a long or short squeeze including launching an app, or performing a function. The Squeeze function was outlined in a previous leak which showed setup arrangements:

We’ll know a lot more about the HTC U 11 when it’s unveiled on May 16th at 4pm AEST – stay tuned.
