HTC looks set to launch a larger version of its U11 flagship smartphone, after the Taiwanese company sent out invites to an event in its home city of Taipei on 2nd November.
The HTC U11 Plus is rumoured to feature a massive 6–inch Quad HD display, up from the 5.5–inch effort found on its smaller stablemate. This will come with an 18:9 aspect ratio, rivalling the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and LG’s G6.
Internal specs are believed to include 64GB or 128GB storage options and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, as well as a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front–facing shooter for selfies.
It’s also likely the U11 Plus will come with many of the same features that marked the U11 out when it launched earlier this year. These include Edge Sense squeezable controls, uSonic audio for adapting sound depending on a user’s hearing and noise cancelling smarts.
It's unlikely that there will be a headphone slot, as the U11 did not feature the analogue tech. That means the U11 Plus joins the likes of Apple’s iPhone X, Google’s Pixel 2 and Huawei’s Mate 10 in ditching the old-school audio port.
It's not clear if the HTC U11 Plus will come with Android Oreo preloaded, but with HTC's device business now belonging to Google, it would be remiss for that not to be the case.
