It’s quite an upgrade from the U11
While HTC’s U11 and U Ultra were gorgeous smartphones in their own right, both phones look dated when compared to recently announced devices with 18:9 aspect ratios and near bezel-less displays. That’s why HTC is rumored to be preparing the U11 Plus, an updated version of their already excellent U11 to combat the growing tide of near bezel-less phones that have arrived in the market recently.
Rumors say that the U11 Plus will have a 5.99-inch panel made by JDI that has a 1,440×2,880 display. It’ll still have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage depending on what phone you get.
The U11 Plus will also have IP68 water resistance, Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 support and a squeezable frame with the company’s Edge Sense feature. The phone is expected to be launched in China come November 11.
