HTC revealed the launch date of its U11 flagship smartphone a few days back along with a teaser video showcasing its “Edge Sense” feature. Now, its specifications have leaked on Geekbench, thus confirming our speculations.
The HTC U11 will use a Snapdragon 835 chipset for dealing with its computing abilities. To support the memory requirements for that powerful chipset, HTC will pack in 4GB of RAM in the U11. The SD835 will be clocked at 1.9Ghz and will use Android 7.1.1 as the operating system.
The U11 recorded a single-core score of 1912 and a multi-core score of 6137, thus matching the Samsung Galaxy S8’s computing abilities. The U11 will give its users a new way to interact with the phone through certain gestures on the side frame of the device. The U11 is tipped to have sensors on the sides of the device that will aid single-handed control over the smartphone. This could actually prove productive in comparison the Galaxy S8’s “Edge” feature.
The phone could also have a 5.5-inches Quad HD screen and feature a 64GB storage option as standard on the base variant. Since the trend for a dual-lens rear camera in on the swing, the U11 could also feature that as well....
