New report claims HTC U11 Plus will be launched in Q4 2017

Even though Google recently announced that it has decided to acquire HTC's mobile division, taking over around 2,000 of its engineers, the Taiwanese company didn't actually sell its smartphone brand to the search giant.

Rumor has it, HTC plans to launch one more flagship smartphone by the end of this year, the so-called HTC U11 Plus. A previous rumor suggested the flagship could be unveiled as early as November, but now we have more info that comes in line with that report.

Industry sources claim the new smartphone will be an upgraded variant of the current HTC U11 flagship. The report even confirms the name the company will use for the said device: HTC U11 Plus.

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.

The phone's 5.99-inch display with Quad HD resolution will complete 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, so that remains to be confirmed.

Wtf? 1000$ for a phone splitting like a clam shell? This is bad. I hope this is an isolated incidence.

This is the phone that should have been released to begin with.

Willing to bet this would have been the Pixel 2 XL if they'd have had the time.

The question is, this one will have a bezel-less design or not? If not, knowing HTC, the U11 Plus will be even bigger than the Note 8! That would not be OK that is for sure!

PhoneArena for example did not say anything about this. I also hope they will do it right.

There's no reason for it. If the U11 didnt sell that well, a minor update in screen size wont memory wont chnage anything, unless they go to 18:9 edge to edge display, and at least include a second camera. same goes for the new Google Pixel XL 2. I dont know why they are not including a second camera.
