HTC U 11 With 'Edge Sensor' Expected to Launch Today


As for RAM, it was previously rumored that the HTC U 11 would rock 6GB of RAM, but the latest sources say that HTC chose to go with 4GB of RAM. Blass says that phone would be named the HTC U 11.

HTC U11 has been in the news for a long time now.

The event is undoubtedly for the HTC U, the company's 2017 flagship smartphone that will sit above the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play. The phone is also set to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM.

HTC released an excellent smartphone last year in the HTC 10, so we were disappointed later in the year when that was followed up by the U Ultra.

There'll be 64GB of storage, expandable up to 2TB via microSD card, but only a 3,000mAh battery.

As per the three official teasers, HTC U 11 is confirmed to come with glossy coloured glass-and-metal-based body and boasts of a 369-video recording feature and the state-of-the-art "Edge Sense" frame technology, which can perform all the functions of a physical button such as power on/off and volume up/down.

But alas, the pursuit of the #BrilliantU does not wait for anyone and the HTC U11 - what we'll likely see at this upcoming event - will get around to you one way or another.

Still, the lack of of a touch-sensitive frame may disappoint fans of that erroneously-published concept video - and later, a faux commercial in the same vein (seen above) - who may have been expecting the device codenamed Ocean to respond to a variety of swipes and taps alongside the squeezes. We'll find out tomorrow what HTC has in store for us, so stay tuned and let us know what you think so far! Another report also tipped pricing and a release date as soon as May 19. HTC's U Ultra, announced in January, is now priced at $749. It doesn't make much sense that HTC's older phone costs more than their new flagship.
