Retail box art for the HTC U 11 surfaces confirming the flagship model's specs?

What appears to be a portion of the art that would appear on the retail box for the HTC U 11 has been leaked. If legit, this provides us with a treasure trove of information pertaining to HTC's next flagship phone, which is expected to be unveiled on May 16th. According to the image, the phone will feature a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB/6GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB/128GB of native storage. A 2TB microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage.

The rear-facing camera weighs in at 12MP (Ultra Pixel 3) with an aperture of f/1.7. Video can be jitter-free thanks to the inclusion of UIS. The front-facing 16MP camera has an f/2.0 aperture and takes Selfie Panoramas. A fingerprint scanner is on board, and the U 11 has an IP 57 certification rating; this means that the handset can be submerged in up to 3.2-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and still survive. Somewhat disappointing is the 3000mAh battery that keeps the hamster wheel spinning, but Quick Charge 3.0 will refresh the cell quickly.

According to the leaked box art, the HTC U 11 is equipped with HTC BoomSound and HTC Usonic Active Noise Cancellation. The phone comes with Hi-Res Audio, and 3D Audio Recording. It supports dual nano SIM cards, NFC and Edge Sense. The latter is the new feature that allows you to squeeze the phone to call up applications. The apps can then be opened by tapping on the touch sensitive edges of the device.

We've already seen images of the handset, and HTC has teased the Edge Sense feature. With the unveiling almost two-weeks away, we could see a lot more leaks appear just prior to the official announcement. Check in often!

Unfortunately, with a battery of 3000 mAh, there is very little to do.

It looks like OIS on the front camera might be gone. On the box for the HTC 10 it has the OIS logo after both front and rear camera listings. This only has after the rear. Regardless this could be the greatest phone in all of mankind and it wouldn't matter since HTC apparently doesn't know how to market/advertise their products

Water resistance is the IP57 version, which is not that great if you are intending to use it in the pool settings.

The 5 is dust and the 7 is water. It's as waterproof as the iPhone. But not as dust proof, probably due to boom sound and sound cancelation. It's water proof to 3 ft. The S8 is ip68 so more dust proof being at 6 and better water proofing being a 8. It being water proof period is actually awesome. I'd glady give up dust resistance for boom sound.

That's not what it means. It just means you can't us a charging pad if it metal. But if could have glass and metal on the back.

The note 5 has a 3000mah battery. With the nougat update I am happy with it. Get about 6 hours sot and about 15 hours if I am not on it much.

This thing will have huge top and bottom bezels and will look like an antique in the stores compared to the Galaxy S8 and G6.

Better look like an antique and be rock solid than look high tech and break up at first drop..

Am I the only person who doesn't really give a *&%$ about how a phone looks? I like maximizing screen size but I don't like the samsungs' edge curved screens. Metal and glass looks fine and everything but almost everyone I know uses a case for their phones - and those who don't usually have a beat-up looking phone with a cracked screen. Reviewers rave about how nice a phone looks - and then put it in a case anyway. The ironic thing is that many people buy an expensive phone and then cheap out on the case (for both looks and protection). I'd be just fine with with a plain looking plastic phone that maximized performance - but I guess I'm in the minority. Silly me.

I'm partly in the same boat, I care more about functionality. Although, sometimes the design does attract me to a smartphone. But I will say, a smartphone with note the best design will still attract me with a great set of specs and features.

"now let's hope it is not over priced." You must but dreaming then, as HTC has always overpriced their flagship phones, just like how Sony does. Crazy.

If the hardware and spec are like what is said here. and battery bigger than 3000 mah. even if its priced at same price than a LG G6 or S8 its gonna be a better buy. sure the new bezel less phone are nice design wise but for me design dont take priority over hardware and quality of build and HTC speciality is thats,

It's not a better buy because it costs less to make than a GS8 so should cost way less. Unless the edge sense thing is expensive to manufacturer, they can't justify charging bezeless phone prices.

Wow if true this is the best specs phone of the year so far, and yay it has the boomsound which is my most favourite in any smart phone. 12 megapixel ultra pixel 3 wow that's new. It only says 6gb ram not 4. All these specs sound too good to be true on such a super reliable phone company like HTC but if true it can be the best phone of the year. My only extra wish list would be if it has an all aluminum body then I would pay around £800 for it no problem but if it doesn't have an all aluminum body I will still buy it with such excellent specs

3000 mah means it is a non-starter for me. I just used my phone (that has a 4000 mah battery) all weekend without plugging it in. Saturday morning at 7 am until last night at 11:30pm...and it still had 19% charge remaining. I really just can't go backwards in the battery department...even for an otherwise great sounding flagship.

wow ppl are so bitchy now. I have a LG G5 and from 5:50 am ( wake up time ) to nearly 10 pm before its under 10% battery. IF i use it much more i might need to charge mid afternoon but so what? charge up to full in less than an hours. But anyhow nowhere on thats sheet is written 3000 mah so its not automatically thats yet.

6GB of RAM is going to be great. It's what set the OnePlus3 apart from the other phones that ran the SD820. The S8/G6 both have 4GB of RAM, so this should give HTC a leg up on the competition. Hopefully they don't have the traditional HTC bezels, otherwise this phone is going to be huge.

Doesn't look like it. This seams to be a pretty nice phone. I hope it does good for them.

Whats wrong with a 3000 mah battery. The s8 also has 3000 mah battery with a 5.7 inch screen. 3000 mah battery is just fine with a Snapdragon 835 and a 5.5 inch screen
