The Taiwanese company hasn’t provided official details regarding to the development of its next flagship, but rumors suggest that the HTC 11 will be released by the end of this year. It’s not impossible, but we highly doubt that HTC will change its annual release pattern, even if the manufacturer has strong competitors that are continuously adding new features to improve their handsets, and it’s hard to keep up the pace with the latest technologies, but it seems that HTC is preparing a few surprises.
According to the latest rumors, the HTC 11 will become a phablet and will sport a 5.5-inch display that will support a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, and which will be curved on both sides, to be similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Edge series.
Also, the device is expected to be resistant to dust and water and under its hood, it will house Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 830 processor that will be paired with 6GB of RAM. Its maximum internal storage capacity will be 256GB, but which will be expanded using a microSD card, while the battery will be increased to 4000mAh, to handle the bigger screen and the new hardware.
There are speculations suggesting that the company will equip its upcoming smartphone with DSLR-like cameras, which support resolutions of 12MP (optical zoom) and 8MP. The HTC 11 will come pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat and it will be Daydream-ready.
It isn’t known how much it will cost, but if rumors will turn out to be true and the HTC 11 will have a larger display, then it will much more expensive than its predecessor, which had a release price of $699.
As for the HTC 10, we remind you that it came with a 5.2-inch QHD screen and an aluminum body with chamfered edges, it was powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor that was backed by 4GB of RAM and it had a primary camera of 12MP with OIS, laser autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and a secondary camera of 5MP, as well as a non-removable battery of 3000mAh.
