HTC's latest flagship, announced in April last year, was called the HTC 10 so when we first started hearing about this year's flagship, the HTC 11 was a logical name choice.
However, shortly after the company announced the U Ultra and U Play in January, the rumors started floating around that the Taiwanese company would name their latest flagship the HTC U.
According to the latest report from Evan Blass, a trustworthy leaker, neither rumor is correct. Or both are true. Blass says that phone would be named the HTC U 11. This information reportedly arrived from an individual briefed on the company plans.
The same source also claims that the HTC U 11 would come in five color options: white, black, blue, red, and silver, depending on the market.
The HTC U 11 will be unveiled on May 16th. Rumors suggest that the HTC U 11 should feature Qualcomm's latest processor Snapdragon 835. It should come with a 5.5-inch QHD display, and it will run Android 7.1 Nougat underneath HTC Sense 9.
The HTC U 11 should offer 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. As for the camera, the HTC U 11 may rock a Sony IMX362 sensor on the back with 12MP, while the selfie shooter should be a massive 16MP IMX351.
HTC will also introduce Edge Sense feature which will allow you to control a number of customizable actions with gestures that you perform on the U's metal frame (instead of the screen).
