A new post from HTC’s Twitter account hints that the rumoured HTC U11 Plus may feature wireless charging. Showing off the back of the phone, it also tallies with the design of the mysterious HTC phone that passed through China’s certification body a few days ago.
HTC’s Twitter post is very simple, showing off part of the device’s back. It looks likely to have a glass back like the U11 flagship, but with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Given the craze for minimal bezels on smartphones, it won’t be surprising that this new fingerprint sensor location suggests a near-bezelless front fascia.
Meanwhile, the bottom left of the photo also suggests wireless charging support on the U11 Plus. The lines look similar to a wireless charging coil, hinting at a new feature for the upcoming HTC phone.
HTC’s tweeted photo also tallies with the device it submitted for certification on TENAA recently, where the phone’s entire body can be seen.
As a recap, the U11 Plus is rumoured to have a 6-inch 2880 x 1440 pixel 18:9 screen. It also is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The single rear camera is said to be a 12 megapixel unit that can record 4K videos while the selfie unit is rumoured to be an 8 megapixel sensor.
