HTC U 11 arrives at GFXBench, stays long enough to drop off latest specs

With the HTC U 11 expected to be unveiled on May 16th, we already have an idea of what to expect from the phone specs-wise. Of course, it is always interesting to see what specs pop up on the benchmark sites. The HTC U 11 already appeared on Geekbench at the end of last month; exactly a month before that, it was featured on AnTuTu. Today, HTC's next flagship phone surfaced on GFXBench.

According to GFXBench, the HTC U 11 will feature a 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution (QHD). Under the hood is the Snapdragon 835 chipset carrying an octa-core 2.4GHz CPU, and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP camera will adorn the back of the unit, and a 16MP camera graces the front of the phone to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed. This is very much the same old story as far as the HTC U 11's specs are concerned.

The major new feature on the HTC U 11 is the heavily teased Edge Sense. By squeezing the bottom sides of the phone, certain applications will appear along the right or left edge of the handset, ready to be opened with a tap of the finger. The other day, renders of the phone in glossy red were leaked.

We expect to see more leaks pertaining to the HTC U 11 come public over the next few days. The unveiling will take place next Tuesday, so check in often.

I'm getting interested again in HTC's flagship handsets. Only the U11's battery life will be a deal-maker or deal-breaker for me. The rest of it's specs are solid enough.

Agreed. If it's 3000mAh or less, I'll pass. 3500mAh-4000mAh would be nice.

Thanks God it's flat screen. Agree the battery life would be a deal or no deal to me as well, but I am not optimistic based on the rumors.

No 4K or even 2K support for video recording with the front cam and they call it a flagship? Even my old Galaxy S6 Edge supports 2K. Well thats a shame.

I got regular GS6 with Verizon before. Despite it has good cameras, the operating is very staggering and the battery life sucks. Replaced it with GS7 only after 5 months.

Umm yeah agreed, battery life is kinda fail but with the new nougat the performance is better. The new max power saving is my favourite of all. If you had it on nougat you'd keep it for the year but its great that you've switched to s7 now

1080p front facing video really isn't enough for you? I'm just trying to think why you would care that much on a front facing camera ?

It has a 15mp front facer. It'll support 2K/4K. Whether out of the box, or in an update. Chill.

what about 3.5mm heaphone jack? does it still lack? battery and this are the biggest drawbacks for me ... I would love to return to HTC but it must provide... Also Nokia 8? should be a huge contester on the market right now... this is the first year in a long time since i didn't buy or preoder a sammy device ..

price matters. htc lacks sensors, ip67 and other things compare to gs8 and tries to charge the same price. charge like other cheap chinese phones.

It's still ip57.... So it's water proof. Just not as dust proof probably due to boom sound.

Man htc realty needs some $$$. Despite their constrained budget they still do try to inovate. Now imagine if htc had and an r&d budget like that of sammy or other big companies. They would really push tech forward
