Latest HTC leak points towards outdated design on next phone

Latest HTC leak points towards outdated design on next phone
The HTC U11+

An unannounced HTC smartphone has been making appearances all over the web these past few months, and now the device has been certified in the brand’s home country of Taiwan. Typically, these filings don’t reveal much, but this isn’t the case today.

As spotted by MySmartPrice, the certification listing contains a sketch of the unnamed smartphone’s front panel. This shows that, unlike most 2019 devices, HTC’s offering won’t sport a notched display or even a punch hole panel. Instead, the company is settling for an 18:9 screen coupled with thick bezels both above and below, thus creating an outdated look. Unfortunately, the design of the rear panel wasn’t detailed, but the listing does show the side of the smartphone. From this, it can be determined that a dual-camera setup is present in the top-left corner of the device.

Regarding the internal side of things, today’s listing doesn’t contain any information. However, previous leaks have pointed towards the presence of 6GB of RAM and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710, a chipset currently found inside the Nokia 8.1 and expected to be used in the foldable Motorola Razr.

HTC hasn’t yet confirmed when this smartphone will be announced, but a release will presumably take place at some point this summer. It’s unclear at this point how much the device will cost.
