Leaked info on HTC U 11 answers questions about hardware

HTC U 11 phoneThe HTC U 11 is set to arrive before the end of the month, but details on what components the phone will pack under the skin have already leaked online via MySmartPrice.

Tech Radar reports that the accidental early unveiling of the U 11’s feature set positions it as a high end smartphone, with a 5.5 inch QHD display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset defining it as undoubtedly cutting edge, at least on paper.

It will also be water-resistant thanks to its IP57 rating, with a primary 12 megapixel camera using HTC’s UltraPixel technology to cram more detail into every snap that is captured. Meanwhile, a 16 megapixel front-facing camera will handle selfie duties and offer its own panorama capabilities.

The U 11 should work with microSDXC memory cards, meaning that its storage space can be boosted by up to a whopping two terabytes. The 128GB of built-in storage will probably be more than enough for most users, but having the option to install add-ons is definitely desirable.

The May 16th launch date of the U 11 is just around the corner, but with few secrets left up its sleeve, HTC could have a tough time hitting the headlines with this release.
