The HTC U 11 (also known as the HTC Ocean) is expected to be released on 16 May, and a new leak revealed – as well as confirmed – several key specifications. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a whopping 6GB RAM, and of course, the much rumoured Edge Sense feature.
As HTC’s first true flagship of 2017, the U 11 is definitely well-equipped. Aside from its Snapdragon 835 processor, the U 11 also comes with a 5.5-inch QHD display, a new 12MP f/1.7 UltraPixel 3 rear camera with optical image stabilisation and 4K video recording, a 16MP front-facing shooter, as well as up to 128GB of expandable storage.
However, much like the HTC U Ultra, the U 11 is said to be packing only a 3,000mAh battery. Needless to say, this modest capacity is quite concerning, especially for a 5.5-inch device with a sharp 1440p display.
Rounding out the leaked specifications of the U 11 include an IP57 rating – the device can be submerged up to a metre underwater – a fingerprint sensor, dual-SIM support, and HTC’s USonic earphones with active noise cancellation. Chances are, the U Ultra won’t feature a headphone jack too.
However, as is always the case with leaked information, it’s wise to take these details with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, we’ll find out how accurate these specifications are once the HTC U 11 goes official on 16 May.
