We are under a week from HTC’s official May 16th launch date for its latest 2017 flagship, the HTC U 11. We have already had a brace of leaks regarding the phone’s capabilities, its specifications and even its alleged box art. The phone was also leaked on Geekbench and AnTuTu. Today, the HTC U 11 showed up on GFXBench just a few days after a leaked set of renders showed up.
The model listed as HTC U-3u by the benchmark will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC clocked @2.4GHz coupled with the Adreno 540 GPU. The base model will carry 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD slot (up to 2 TB). The smartphone will have a 5.5-inch SuperLCD5 QHD resolution (1440 x2560) panel based display. For the rear shooter, the HTC U-3u is listed as having a 12-megapixel camera which has been confirmed to be carrying the company’s latest proprietary UltraPixel 3 technology. Up-front the selfie-shooter is a 16-megapixel sensor, both the camera sensors are rumoured to be SONY units. Running on top of all this hardware is Android, v.7.1.1, Nougat under HTC’s proprietary Sense UI skin.
The major calling card for the HTC U 11 though is the Edge Sense technology that is debuting with the phone. With this, a user can squeeze the bottom frame of the HTC U 11 to interface with the phone instead of being dependent on the touchscreen and voice only.
