As HTC U 11 launch draws close, device spotted on GFXBench with familiar specs

Leaks surrounding HTC U 11 have been making rounds on the Internet for a while now. The device is confirmed to launch next week. And as the launch is drawing closer, the device has surfaced on benchmarking site GFXBench.

There is nothing new not known to the public from the leak. All the specs are in line with what was rumored earlier. The listing affirms that HTC U 11 will sport a 5.5-inch QHD display (1440 x 2560p), in addition to a 12MP rear camera and 16MP sensor on the front. The primary camera will offer f/1.7 aperture, OIS, dual-tone LED flash, and 4K video recording capabilities.

Rumors suggest the HTC U 11 will launch in two RAM and storage variants. There could be 4GB RAM/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. Last week, the device was also spotted on Geekbench confirming latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. The GFXBench corroborates with that.

Additionally, the leaks revealed that the HTC U 11 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and an Adreno 540 GPU. The flagship device is expected to house a 3000mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.

There are a couple of features that were not known through benchmarking sites. For instance, HTC recently posted a teaser video for the launch with a tagline ‘Squeeze for the Brilliant U’. Apparently, the HTC U 11 comes with edge sensors which make it ‘squeezable’. The edges of the phone can be pressed to access certain functions quickly.

HTC will be launching the flagship at an event in Taiwan scheduled on May 16. Other devices that fall in the HTC U lineup and that was already launched include the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play.
