Mid-Range Variant Of The HTC U11+ To Be Launched In January
Ever since the co-operative agreement between Google and HTC, it has been rumoured that HTC will slowly shift its prime focus to its other businesses like virtual reality. However, that doesn’t mean that HTC smartphones will be completely phased out. The company recently launched the HTC U11+ and HTC U11 Life. A new report claims that a mid-range variant of the HTC U11+ will be launched in January of 2018, possibly at CES.
A few weeks ago, the specifications of an HTC phone codenamed Ocean Harmony were revealed. According to the specs listed, the device will have a 5.99-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a possible 2160 x 1080 px resolution.
Under the hood, the device will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which will be expandable via microSD card.
The specifications hinted towards a toned down variant of the HTC U11+ and the new report appears to corroborate with the previous leak.
The report further claims that the next HTC device to launch in 2018 will be the HTC U12. Although no timeline is mentioned for the U12, it could be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and have a tall display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Similar to the HTC U11+, the HTC U12 could also skip the 3.5mm headphone jack.
