After Google reportedly bought off a piece of HTC, it came to be known that the Taiwanese firm would continue making new phones. It seems we know what the newest HTC offering will be after the $1.2 billion buy-out. The HTC U11 Plus, a sort of upgraded HTC U11, is in the pipelines and tipped to launch before the end of this year. After the acquisition news, images of the HTC U11 Plus made the rounds online showing extremely thin bezels. It remains to be seen how legit these images are but now we have a 3C certification to add fire to those HTC U11 Plus rumours.

China’s 3C authority just certified a device with model number “HTC 2Q4D200″. The same model number also appeared on Bluetooth SIG certification. As we know, 3C certification is absolutely mandatory for Chinese devices, this makes the device one step closer to launch.
However, TENAA certification is as important and that has yet to happen. Also, TENAA scanner might throw some light on the spec sheet of this mysterious device. We expect the HTC U11 Plus to be mostly the same as the flagship HTC U11. But a bezel-less display will be an added bonus and a first for HTC.

Current rumours say it will have a 5.99-inch Quad HD+ display, 64 GB or 128 GB internal storage options. We don’t know when the HTC U11 Plus will launch. Most insiders say the launch should be in November.

    If HTC wants to stand out from the crowd–nonwithstanding Google partnership– it needs to go into 6+” territory, and not just 6¼…because it would still then be part of another crowd(albeit smaller) and others wiould still beat it on size.
