HTC U11 Plus with bezel-less display to launch on November 11

HTC U11 Plus with bezel-less display to launch on November 11

In what might just be the last independent phone release, the HTC U11 Plus, aka the Ocean Master, may release on November 11. Instead, there were reports that HTC will be announcing three new smartphones by the end of the year. Now, more details regarding this new HTC U11 Plus have been leaked.

HTC in its official statement on the agreement said, "This agreement also supports HTC's continued branded smartphone strategy, enabling a more streamlined product portfolio, greater operational efficiency and financial flexibility". Earlier this year, HTC launched its best smartphone even, the U11, but the smartphone failed to grab the attention of the consumers. The Edge Sense technology which debuted with the HTC U11 will supposedly make a return with the U11 Plus, i.e. the smartphone is said to have a pressure-sensitive frame which can recognize when the user is squeezing it and identify different levels of pressure exerted on it, then use that information to trigger various modifiable actions, essentially acting as a physical shortcut mechanism. The publication also hints that the HTC U11 Plus may arrive with an attractive pricing. It will feature a 6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The screen resolution is expected to be 1440×2880. Powering it will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (64 bit) Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.45Ghz coupled with 6GB of RAM and will be made available in two versions: 64GB ROM and 128GB ROM.

A 12-megapixel camera is present on the rear side of the smartphone.

For an awesome picture and video recording experience, the phone will be featured with 12 MP at the rear and 8 MP snapper on the front. Whereas the recently released flagship was IP67-certified for resistance to dust particles and water, the HTC U11 Plus will supposedly boast IP68 certification, meaning it will be capable of surviving being submerged up to 1.5m in water for a maximum of 30 minutes, according to latest rumors. Apparently, this Plus variant of the U11 will stick to a majority of the specs and features you see on the standard model, but it will go after the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, LG G6, LG V30 and Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 as far as the design is concerned.
