  • HTC U11 Plus to come with 6-inch bezel-less display and Android 8.0

According to a new report, despite selling off its Pixel development team to Google, HTC is by no means finished with creating its own devices to compete with the rest of the market. Entrance under the headphones again forgotten as another trend in 2017 - dual camera: on the back side of HTC U11 Plus will be only one module with 12 megapixels.

The upcoming HTC U11 Plus, which is set to be made official on the 2 of November at an event in Taipei, has been spotted on the popular GFXBench graphics benchmark database.

And there are some things we do know, all of which you'll find below, along with our analysis and educated guesses as to what else the U11 Plus might offer. With the smaller U11 priced at £649 we expect the U11 Plus to be around £749 but could be more. This is, of course, in keeping with the Samsung Galaxy S8 series, LG G6, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and now the iPhone X.

Plus, the regular U11 is 153.9mm tall already so this isn't that much of an increase for the extra screen. While the U11 features a 5.5-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, the U11 Plus is going to sport a bigger 6-inch display with 1440 x 2880 Quad HD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The new phone is expected to be HTC's first phone to feature a bezel-less edge-to-edge display.

There's no news on the operating system but we'd be surprised if it doesn't run Android Oreo overlaid with HTC's Sense UI.

Sources suggest that the HTC U11 Plus will have a Snapdragon 835 chipset with either 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, though it's unclear whether both configurations will be available everywhere.

The HTC U11 Plus looks similar but not identical to the U11. Instead, there will still be a 12Mp camera with f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilisation.
