HTC has soared the temperature further by revealing the hot and glossy Red variant of its upcoming flagship, dubbed as HTC U 11. Recently, a leaked video floated on the internet, which gives a 360-degree view of this beautiful red variant of HTC U 11. This is the first look of the device.
In terms of looks, HTC U 11 impresses us at the first glance with its vibrant red color curved-edge design. The video renders a mic-hole slot on the top and the SIM/Micro SD card slot towards the right edge of the handset. There are also a phone lock key and volume buttons on the side.
Moving towards the bottom, we can see the USB-C port in between two small identical holes, slotted and pin-holes. Along with that, there is a long speaker grille slot.
The left side of the handset is spared from any keys, slot or buttons. This could be due to the rumored touch-sensitive edge feature of HTC U 11 which is operational through gestures.
Talking about the sensors, the fingerprint scanner appears to be underneath the 5.5-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) display. The thin bezels seem to dribble over the edges, giving the handset a curved look. However, there is no physical button on the front.
The poppy red color rear side of the device is outfitted with a 12 MP camera in a round frame along with the flash near it. The front camera is rooted with a 16MP lens to deliver high-clarity 'Selfie' pictures even at low-light conditions.
As speculated earlier, HTC U 11 will skip a separate earphone jack and will align the 3.5mm headphone jack with the USB-C adapter.
This upcoming flagship smartphone is touted to be the most powerful device ever made by the top Taiwanese brand. And now the ravishing red variant of HTC U 11 has pumped the excitement even farther.
HTC U 11 will be stock with some 'never-seen-before' specifications including the touch-sensitive edges which will operate only with gestures, touch, and voice of the users. Moreover, the company finally seems to have moved on from their simple design handset concept, which was one of the reasons behind their losing popularity.
Based on the rumored specifications, HTC U 11 is tipped to have a new interface named as HTC Sense 9. Its other speculated features include 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage option. It is likely to be chipped with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and run Android 7.1 Nougat.
We were also briefed that it will come with an Artificial Intelligence feature, HTC Sense Companion besides a powerful 3000mAh battery capacity with Quick Charge 3.0 option.
The black and red combination adds a classic yet trendy flavor to HTC U 11 and we can't wait to lay our hands on this superphone.
