An apparent screenshot from an upcoming “HTC 11” has confirmed some of its specifications ahead of an official unveiling. The device is expected to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a somewhat strange display resolution.
Despite launching the U Ultra back in January, HTC has already confirmed that it is working on another flagship smartphone for 2017 that will pack Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chip. It looks like that handset could be the HTC 11, a successor to last year’s HTC 10.
An alleged screenshot uploaded to Chinese micro-blogging network Weibo reveals the device will also offer the HTC Sense 9.0 interface based on Android 7.12 Nougat, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. It is also expected to have a display with a 1556 x 2550 resolution.
That would make the display close to Quad HD, which is 1440 x 2560. The fact that it’s not quite Quad HD could suggest that this screenshot is fake, or that the HTC 11 will have a unique aspect ratio — like the upcoming LG G6. Both are completely plausible.
However, we recommend taking this screenshot with a pinch of salt until the HTC 11 is official. It’s not difficult to fake “leaks” like this one, and although the rest of the specifications appear perfectly acceptable, this is far from official confirmation.
The HTC 10 make its debut last April, so if the HTC 11 does exist, we could be hearing about it within the next couple of months.
