More likely, though, is that at 7am the company will release a promotional video for the new phone, which you will be able to view on the above link. However, HTC is celebrating their 20th anniversary on May 16th, so they scheduled the launch date on that day. But we expect the app to reappear soon after the phone gets unveiled. As of now, only this much detail is available and we don't know how much control the Edge Sense feature will be able to provide to the users. A few benchmark leaks over the past few weeks had suggested the U 11 will only include 4GB of RAM, but it now looks like there will be a variant with 6GB of RAM after all. The video also shows a calibration screen where one can see how the force is registered on the sides, though throughout the hands-on it did seemed like it wasn't as seamless as we'd want it to be.
This follows a January 2017 launch for the HTC U Ultra, which is the flagship phablet in the new line-up. Under the hood is the 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835 SoC built on the 10nm FinFET process.
It's also tipped to have a 12.2-megapixel rear-facing camera and a massive 15.8-megapixel selfie camera. It has been tipped to offer 64GB of internal storage as well.
The HTC U 11 is expected to feature the same size battery as the HTC 10 - 3,000 mAh.More news: Fatah leads local polls in West Bank cities
The fingerprint scanner on the HTC U 11 is embedded into the home button and the phone is expected to come with water and dust resistance rating of IP57.
We have heard various rumors about the new HTC U 11, the handset is rumored to come with a 5.5 inch Quad HD display with a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. HTC's trademark BoomSound technology is also believed to reappear this time with the HTC U 11.
The latest report from Taiwan says that the company might open pre-orders on May 19th in Taiwan and that the device would hit other markets in June.
