HTC U11 Plus WILL Go Head-To-Head With Google Pixel 2 XL

HTC U11 Plus WILL Go Head-To-Head With Google Pixel 2 XL

The resolution on this giant panel is Quad-HD enough to fill every inch with more than enough pixels. Reportedly, the new smartphone will pack a generous battery of around 4,000 mAh, and should be only a tad larger than the HTC U11 (released in May this year). It will be paired with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal storage. While the front gets an 8-megapixel selfie snapper.

Aesthetically, as well as internally, the U11 Plus will greatly resemble its 5.5-inch forerunner, but there are also a number of very important differences to consider. The headphone jack could also be missing on this one, which sadly is now on the verge of extinction.

According to a new report, despite selling off its Pixel development team to Google, HTC is by no means finished with creating its own devices to compete with the rest of the market. Let's see how quick it manages to update the latter two devices to Android Oreo.

Of course, even if the U11 Plus is announced then you may not be able to buy it straight away, but we expect HTC will want to make it available before the holiday season, so you probably won't be waiting too long.

We perhaps weren't expecting something new so soon from HTC but the firm appears to have sent out invitations to an event in Taipei on 2 November.

In which case you can expect an aperture of f/1.7 and optical image stabilization, along with likely strong performance if our experience with the HTC U11 is anything to go by.

Powering the U11 Plus will be Qualcomm's octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 835 chipset clocked at 2.4 GHz, with an Adreno 540 GPU. There haven't been any rumors regarding whether or not this version of the phone will feature Edge Sense support.

Today's report also includes some spec details for the HTC U11 Plus.
