The new HTC U Plus may come soon

While the HTC U11 has a classic screen, the HTC U11 Plus codenamed as HTC Ocean Master will flaunt a near-bezel-less screen.

The recently launched HTC U11 have been received well by the critics. But not all Android OEMs have joined the party - phone makers like Motorola, Nokia, Sony, and HTC chose to stick with the classic phone design this year and so launched models with visible bezels and standard 16:9 ratio.

A report from French website Frandroid, which is usually a reliable source for HTC leaks said that the company is working on the U11 Plus flagship smartphone, which would replace the HTC U11. Dubbed as HTC U11 Plus, this will be company's first device to sport a bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. We also believe that facial recognition will be a part of the security detail for the smartphone but we're also hoping it is not as easy to fool as the system on Samsung's flagship family.

HTC recorded worst revenue ever in August 2017 in the last 13 years, which made the company sell its smartphone team to Google for $1.1 billion.

Some information coming from France hints at the coming of HTC U11 Plus.

The HTC U11 Plus will be launched in China on November 11.

The phone is further expected to come with a 5.99-inch screen with a 1440x2880 pixel resolution.

Separately, word came that HTC U11 Life, which is also an Android One device is said to be released at the same event.

As noted, the U11 Plus will reportedly keep most of the performance specs and features of the standard model, among them a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 4GB/6GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. So in some regions, it will come up with 4GB RAM/64GB UFS 2.1 storage variant, while in others it will be equipped with 6GB RAM/128GB UFS 2.1 storage variant. The frontside will be fitted with an 8-megapixel selfie snapper. Features like Edge Sense, Quick Charge 3.0 and IP68 dust and water resistance will be present.
