HTC under the leadership of Motorola’s ex-president is preparing to unveil a new device called the HTC U11 Plus, which will be a more beefed up variant of the current U11. Moreover, the device seems to have a 6-inch display as per the GFXbench listings, which also suggests that HTC could also do an 18:9 aspect ratio screen, just like every other OEM this year.
The resolution on this giant panel is Quad-HD enough to fill every inch with more than enough pixels. Apart from that one more major thing here is that it runs on Android Oreo 8.0. So, this will be the second device after Sony’s XZ1 compact which will come pre-installed with Google’s latest flavor of Android.
Moreover, other specs include a Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB RAM with 64GB native storage with room for expansion via micro sd-card support up to 2TB. On the camera front, we have a 12-megapixel sensor seen on U11, but it could be an improved one instead. While the front gets an 8-megapixel selfie snapper.
Apart from the bezel-less display and the Android Oreo out of the box, you expect the U11 Plus to have the fingerprint scanner on the rear, the same squeeze gimmick, and the legit boom sound support. The headphone jack could also be missing on this one, which sadly is now on the verge of extinction. HTC with the U11 Plus will have more than three devices in its U line up, which includes the U Ultra/Play, U11, and the U11 Plus. Let’s see how quick it manages to update the latter two devices to Android Oreo.
