Alleged HTC U 11 renders show a glossy red version of the phone

HTC U 11 - this is (likely) the name of the brand new flagship smartphone that HTC will announce later this month, on May 16. The company already released a few teasers showcasing bits and parts of the U 11, while also indirectly confirming a rumor: the new handset features a squeezable frame (reportedly, this will be called Edge Sense).

Before HTC gets the chance to officially present its next generation flagship, it seems that we can already take a look at it - or at least at renders that reportedly show what the real device will look like. Revealed by 91 Mobiles and @OnLeaks (a very reliable source), said renders are based on factory CAD sketches, and show a glossy red variant of the HTC U 11.

As you can see for yourself below, the HTC U 11 has thin bezels on the left and right sides of the screen, but not-so-thin top and bottom bezels. As for the overall thinness, it's said that the handset is 8 mm thick at the bottom, and 9.2 mm thick at the top - due to the squeezable frame mentioned above.

Specs-wise, the HTC U Ultra is expected to be pretty much on par with other 2017 flagship handsets, thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 6 GB of RAM, and up to 128 GB of expandable internal memory. The new HTC smartphone should further feature a 12 MP rear camera, a 16 MP front-facing camera, USB Type-C port, and a 3000 mAh battery. Android 7.1 Nougat will be running the show from launch.

Mind you, the HTC U 11 is the handset previously presented as HTC Ocean, which explains the similarity between these new renders and the Ocean photos seen last month.

So, what do you think about this upcoming HTC flagship phone?

Oh HTC, the Apple copycats that hide behind the fallacy that Apple copied HTC. "What new iPhone colour came out recently?"-HTC design team every time. Examples: Rose gold HTC A9, Matte black HTC A9S and this (assuming the leak is accurate) the only difference is HTC used a black front bezel which is something everyone said Apple should have done. Smh, they should have some sort of individuality especially as they made a carbon copy of the secondary display from LG phones too.

Nopers HTC used this kind of metal build YEARS before apple iphone 6 thats started to use this kind of build. So dont go there. Another important information to considere is Apple and HTC have agreements to share design and tech. As for dual screen i remember lots of flip phone with those.. So sorry :P

Oh the life of an Apple fan. If Apple ever does something, no one must ever do it again in spite of the fact that they may have done it a million times before Apple. We never accuse Apple of the copying because they are the great innovators. In fact, the only colors any other phone manufacturer can make now is neon fuchsia because Apple hasn't done it. HTC also copied use of Beats audio I suppose. They got in their time machine and knew Apple would one day acquire beats, so they copied it.

The HTC One was indeed a product of HTC using the time machine to go back, they copied all the iphone colours (silver, matte black, gold and red), copied the Live Photos feature (that ZOE rippoff), the dual speakers, OIS and the aluminium unibody! Shame on HTC.

Have you looked at HTC One M7 and M8 RED edition and Windows 8S and 8X available in RED, Blue, Yellow and Black. None of the smartphone companies in many years has innovated anything. These days everyone is copying each other esp. Apple.

This is not the design, in the official videos you can see difference in the design. I don't think the phone will look like that at all.

If Apple removed 3.5 mm we will removed it too. If Apple made red phone we will make it too... Shame on HTC...

They've been making red phones long time ago, since HTC One M7. 3.5 mm will be removed from every phone

Motorola removes the headphone jack and then Apple does. Motorola does Product Red and then Apple does. Shame on Apple...

That red would be nice if it's real. I loved the red on the A9.

No front facing speakers , no dual camera, no bezeless display. Poor shame HTC. Go back to HTC M8 designers makers.

It looks nice actually but I can't go back to bezels. To be fair, this is probably exactly how the iphone 8 will look if it isn't just an Iphone 7 with an OLED display that I think its going to be.

No headphone jack and now 3000mah battery? This is ridiculous. Its saving grace is if the edge sense proved useful and not gimmicky. Come on HTC.

Another uninspiring design from HTC. While other OEMs are redesigning towards the bezel-less trend, HTC is still realising this stuff? Why, HTC... Why.
