Rumours point to powerful hardware for HTC 11

HTC 11 ?The next flagship smartphone from HTC will be landing next year, with industry sources claiming that it will come with a variety of high end components under its sleek exterior, according to Softpedia.

Insiders argue that power will come via the Snapdragon 835 chipset, giving it the edge over its competitors which have been released in 2016. It will also have a 5.5 inch QHD display, to give it a fighting chance against dominant devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Perhaps most impressive of all is the reported 8GB of RAM which will be paired with the processor, along with storage space topping out at 256GB. A 3700mAh battery will top all this off and give the HTC 11 a real chance to claw back some market share in 2017.

In terms of camera capabilities, the presence of a 12 megapixel snapper with a pair of lenses on the rear should be reassuring. And with an eight megapixel front-facing camera, its selfie quality should be excellent.

The HTC 11 is expected to launch in the spring and could make its maiden appearance during the MWC 2017 conference held over in Barcelona
