HTC's new flagship to be called the HTC U 11; phone will launch in five colors
At first, everyone assumed that the next HTC flagship would be called the HTC 11 since it was the sequel to the HTC 10. Then last month, trusty tipster Evan Blass indicated that the next flagship would be given the name, HTC U. Now, Blass says that according to someone familiar with HTC's plans, the actual name of the manufacturer's next flagship will combine both leaked titles. That's right, make way for the HTC U 11. The device will most likely be available in white, black, blue, red, and silver. Images of the phone, which still has the code name of Ocean, were revealed by Blass last week.

The HTC U 11 is expected to carry a 5.5-inch Super LCD display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset will be powering the phone, carrying an octa-core 2.45GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A rear-facing 12MP camera is included along with a 16MP front-facing selfie snapper. If the use of a 4000mAh battery in the mid-range HTC One X10 means anything, we could see a similar juicer for the HTC U 11. Carrying an IP57 certification rating, the phone can be submerged in water as deep as 3.2 feet for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. Android 7.1 will be pre-installed, and a fingerprint scanner is on board. A new feature, recently teased by HTC, will allow users to squeeze the sides of the phone to activate certain applications. The model just received its Bluetooth certification, and will carry Bluetooth 5.0

Earlier this week, HTC revealed that it will officially introduce the HTC U 11 on Tuesday, May 16th at 2am EDT.
