has already said that it's launching a phone on November 2 in Taipei
and thanks to a recent
, it's all but confirmed that the phone is going to be the HTC U11 Plus
launched in India earlier this year in June for a price of Rs. 51,990. The U11 was a flagship which ran on a Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB of RAM and had 128GB of internal storage. The real draw of the phone besides the hardware was the intuitive "Edge Sense" feature that allowed users to launch apps simply by squeezing the phone on the sides.
The camera also got accolades thanks to a DXOMark score of 90 which was higher than the original Google Pixel. Notably, Pixel 2 also incorporates the Edge Sense feature introduced on the U11.
According to the GFXBench
listing, the U11 plus will also run on a Snapdragon 835 processor with an Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB of RAM. According to the listing, the phone will also come with 64GB of internal storage. On the back is the same 12MP camera as on the HTC U11 and an 8MP camera on the front.
The biggest changes from the original will be a new 6-inch QHD+ edge to edge display and Android 8.0 oreo out of the box. The smartphone is also expected to come in two colour options, Brilliant Black and Amazing Silver. It's largely expected to be a flagship class phone which will replace the U11 at the top of the line-up.
