2017 is right around the corner, but it will take a few months for the Taiwanese manufacturer to release its new HTC 11 flagship. Meanwhile, rumors about its specs will continue to surface online, giving us an idea of what to expect from the upcoming smartphone, and so far, we’ve heard only great things about it.
According to the latest speculations, the HTC 11, which is believed to be codenamed HTC Ocean, will come with a larger display and no physical buttons, and it will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
If rumors will prove to be right, the HTC 11 will have a larger 5.5-inch QHD screen and the processor will be coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU and 8GB of RAM. But wait, there’s more! Back in September, when the HTC Ocean has leaked in a rendered video, it was button-less and running on a new Sense Touch UI that relies on voice commands and touch gestures.
More recent rumors claimed that on the back will be used a dual camera setup consisting of two 12MP cameras, and on the front side will be placed an 8MP camera. As for the battery, it will have a capacity of 3700mAh and will support Quick Charge 4.0.
The flagship will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and will have an internal memory of 256GB. Its price will be $690 in the US and £550 in the UK, and it’s believed that it will make its appearance in early 2017, maybe around the date when Samsung will release its new Galaxy S8.
Until now, the HTC Ocean (HTC 11) appeared in leaks in three variants with the codenames Ocean Master, Ocean Note, and Ocean Smart, and some say that each one will come with a different screen size.
