Taiwanese company HTC is known for its design and technology innovations. In fact, it was the first company to roll out an Android-powered phone and known for working closely with Google for its Pixel devices. Recently, the search giant decided to acquire a couple thousand of HTC engineers for $1.1 Billion. This, however, hasn’t bogged down HTC. At least for now, the company is working on three smartphones to be launched this year.
The recently launched HTC U11 have been received well by the critics. However, a few complained about the lack of bezel-less screen, which is the latest trend in premium phone segment. The company seemed to have assessed the market correctly this time around, as it is rumoured to be working on a bezel-less display phone code-named HTC Ocean Master aka HTC U11 Plus.
Basically the company looks to retain the improvements made in the camera and display department with the U11 and address some of its shortcomings. A recent leak by a French Android blog Frandroid, suggests this phone could go into manufacturing soon and make an appearance as early as November 11. Frandroid also revealed a full specification list of the HTC U11, which suggests the phone may sport a 5.99-inch 18:9 display supplied by JDI (Japan Design Incorporated). It is likely to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835. It could come in 4 GB/6 GB RAM options with 64 Gb or 128 GB UFS 2.1 on-board storage options. There’s a 12 MP camera at the back which apparently is the same sensor found on the HTC U11 and an 8 MP selfie shooter. The phone is expected to come with IP68 certified dust and water resistant body this time around.
