Now, in a major escalation of leaks, Evan Blass has leaked most of the specifications of the U11 Plus.
Evan’s leaks have been correct in the past, and they corroborate the specifications shown in TENAA and some previous leaks, so this should be the final spec sheet for the device, which will be a mid-cycle refresh of the HTC U11.
First up is the U11 Plus, which has appeared on a Chinese telecommunications certification site. The below pictures don’t expose much, besides a rear-facing fingerprint sensor (HTC usually puts them on the front)
HTC U11 Plus will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with the Adreno 540 GPU. It will be available in two variants: 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. It is unknown whether the higher-end variant will be available in all international markets. Both variants will have a microSDXC card slot. U11 Plus will have a 6-inch WQHD+ (2880×1440) LCD panel with 538 PPI.
This is definitely interesting because it shows that HTC has chosen to forgo OLED displays for the second time in 2017. HTC U11 Plus will have a 12MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture and Dual LED flash. The camera module will likely be same as the U11. The front facing camera will have 8MP resolution.
The U11 Plus is definitely the battery size, which, at 3,930mAh. This is an absolutely huge 31% increase in battery capacity over the 3,000mAh battery of the U11.
The device will support Qualcomm Quick Charging 3.0 and have an IP rating of IP68, meaning the phone will have a greater degree of water resistance as compared to the Pixel 2 XL.
The top bezel is clearly visible, but the bottom bezel can’t be picked out. Since the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back, perhaps this phone will have a smaller ‘chin’ than HTC’s other phones, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
HTC U11+ (Ocean M/aster): SD835, 4/64GB | 6/128GB, mSDXC, 6″ WQHD+ LCD@ 538dpi, 12MP-f/1.7-LEDx2/8MP, 3930mAh-QC3.0, IP68, E.Sense, B.Sound. https://t.co/1nmdtKi5hi
