HTC U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording, new video teaser suggests

HTC wants us to get excited about its upcoming flagship smartphone - the HTC U 11. The handset will be officially announced next week, on May 16, but, before that, HTC released a new video teaser to keep our interest piqued.

HTC's new video - embedded above - is quite short, and is accompanied by a "360 real-life recording" caption. From this, we can conclude that the U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording - or maybe 360-degree video recording, too? This is the second U 11 feature that HTC is (kind of) confirming, after the phone's squeezable frame - apparently called Edge Sense.

Recently, we've seen some alleged HTC U 11 renders, and it seems that the handset looks like a mix between its predecessor (HTC 10) and the HTC U Ultra

The U 11 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, further offering a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, 4 GB (or maybe 6 GB) of RAM, a USB Type-C port, and up to 128 GB of internal memory. It's said that the handset also features a 12 MP rear camera, a 16 MP front-facing camera, and a 3000 mAh battery.

We assume HTC will start selling the U 11 shortly after announcing it. In any case, we'll be here to let you know all about the company's announcement next week.
