HTC U 11 to have a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box


Later this month, on May 16, HTC will announce a brand new high-end smartphone to succeed last year's HTC 10. Probably called HTC U 11, the new device will seemingly offer all the bells and whistles that HTC can commercially release at this time, including squeezable, touch-sensitive edges that enable various gesture controls.

We've already seen a list of alleged HTC U 11 specs, and now we're hearing another (arguably important) thing about the smartphone. While the handset does not feature a standard 3.5mm audio jack, it will come with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box. This detail was shared today by ROM developer LlabTooFeR, who is usually spot on with information regarding HTC.

As you may know, the HTC U Ultra (released in February) does not have a 3.5mm adapter in its retail box, which is a bit of a shame. Sure enough, the phone comes with a pair of nice USB Type-C headphones, but you still have to buy your own adapter if you want to use 3.5mm headsets with it. 

We're quite glad to find out that HTC isn't willing to cut any corners when it comes to the U 11. After all, this will likely be the company's flagship handset for the next year or so.
