HTC sends out invites for a November 2 event, U11 Plus incoming?

Well, well, well, it looks like all the rumors that HTC hasn't given up on issuing flagship smartphones even after Google acquired its "Made by HTC' Pixel-crafting unit, will turn out tobe true. CEO Cher Wang tipped a while ago that HTC will have some impressive phones to show in the fall season, and it is indeed now sending out invites for a November 2 event over in the home turf of Taipei, with the enigmatic "U" letter featuring prominently.

The talk of the tape is that HTC will be jumping on the 18:9 screen aspect bandwagon with an U11 Plus handset of its own. Given how great we found the single camera of the U11 and its battery life to be in our review, we can only look forward to seeing what HTC has done with the rest of the specs and design in a newer phone. The U11 Plus is expected to come equipped with a powered Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a secondary 8-megapixel selfie snapper, as well as either 64GB or 128GB internal memory. 

A 6" Quad HD display should complement the phone's high-end specs. It's yet unclear whether or not the HTC U11 Plus will come with Android 8.0 Oreo on board, but the hour and place of the announcement are known, so we'll tune in come November 2nd to see HTC's first bezel-less efforts.

This is such horsecrap with all those oem's trying to do events for every little thing. We have Apple to thank for this, they started this whole thing years ago. All those vendors used to introduced their products during big events or shows, now everyone thinks they should have their own events for product announcements, it's a joke. Why have an event for just the U11plus? what a joke.

They could be announcing something on VR as well. Remember they have the HTC Vive as well.

Why is their event bothering you this much ? Whoever organizes an event pays from their own pocket not yours! At the same time .. There is no major events coming up in November so why do they have to wait for a major event because of people like U !!

Let's hope it will be the leaked U11 Plus: hTC needs to stay in the market for its fans and the general costumer too!
