The listing on TENAA shows a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 pixel IPS display dominating the front of the phone. Unlike the HTC U11, this phone is without a fingerprint scanner on the front. HTC has moved it to the rear, just below the camera sensor.
On that note, the sensor on the back is a 12 megapixel unit – most likely the same as the one on the U11. However, the selfie shooter has been downgraded to a 5 megapixel unit according to the listing.
At the heart of the phone is an octa-core processor, paired to either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, with a maximum 128GB storage option available. The battery on this unit is a 3850mAh unit – which should be enough to power the phone throughout the day.
This could be a market-specific model for HTC – a China-only release may be a possibility here, especially since these specs don’t tally with those leaked by @evleaks (even if he also refers to the TENAA listing later). Plus, we look forward to the 2 November event to see what they are dishing up after the partial acquisition of their smartphone team Google.
