Codenamed HTC Ocean, the HTC 11 reveals more of its features including technical specs, audio and camera. Let’s take a look and quickly browse through the most important ones:
Price & release date
It would make pretty much sense if HTC would launch its HTC 11 at the Mobile World Congress, considering the fact that Samsung may also launch its Galaxy S8 at the event.
The price is expected to be about $700 based on the previous version of HTC at the moment of release. The HTC range is rumored to include 3 models: Ocean Master, Ocean Smart and Ocean Note and two of them may be released under the names HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play. Anyway, the launch event is going to be streamed live.
Display & design
The famous leaker Evan Blass leaked a promo video for the phone which shows that apps will be launched by scrolling and touching the side of the phone. The HTC Ocean seems to be similar to the HTC 10, having a full metal unibody and waterproofing. The display may come in several sizing since we have three possible models. The HTC 10 had a 5.2-inch display with 1,440 x 2,560 pixel res and we may see the same features in HTC 11. If HTC is going to opt for an AMOLED display or not still remains a mystery.
Rumors say that the HTC 11 will have an Ultrapixel front-facing camera, but there still aren’t any details on the rear facing camera or on the sensor’s quality. HTC 11 will also feature a fully enhanced camera app and some HDR settings for better picture quality – HDR+, 3D Audio, Smart Video Zoom, Hi-Res Recording functions.
The HTC will come with 4 mics for recordings, 2 audio rec modes, 3D audio, Hi-Res rec options, and Multimedia Boom Sound and HTC USonic – a technology that allows you to configure your very own sound profile.
Processor, RAM and more
We expect a new Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset like the one HTC used for the Google Pixel. It should also have more than 4 GB RAM. HTC 11 will boast Sense 9 (its signature user interface) and Edge Sense – a feature where sensors are embedded into the phone’s frame.
The latest leaks also reveal that HTC 11 will come with Android 7.1 Nougat and you’ll find it in two variations: a 64 GB option with 4 GB RAM, and another 128 GB option with 6 GB RAM. It will also include a 3000 mAh battery, support for Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi and a 5.5- inch WQHD screen protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
We’re pretty eager to see how many of all these rumors will turn out to be true, and we’re looking forward for HTC 11’s release. How about you?
