HTC 11 is undoubtedly a highly anticipated smartphone of 2017 and fresh reports suggest that the handset will sport some enviable specs and features that will make even the biggies stare.

According to Gadgets 360, the HTC 11 will sport a 5.5-inch QHD display with screen resolution of 1440x2560 pixels. It will use HTC’s Sense 8 UI and run on Android 7.0 Nougat. The handset will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU and a mega 8GB RAM. Internal storage could be of 256GB. To support such specs, the HTC 11 will come with a 3,700 mAh battery.

There could be a 12MP rear camera and 8MP front camera. As HTC has not revealed anything about the price of HTC 11, the only reference point is HTC 10 price, which cost around US$699 (AU$1,000 approx). Meanwhile, Phone Arena reports that HTC is replacing the HTC One X9 handset with a mid-range HTC X10 in January. It would also sport a 5.5-inch display with screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.

The handset will be powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC and Mali-T860 GPU. A 3GB RAM is also expected along with a 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS. The handset will reportedly cost around US$288 (AU$400), which is significantly less than HTC 11. HTC has also teased that it will be coming up with something for its customers on Jan. 12, 2017.

The company, in a teaser, simply wrote “for U” along with the Jan. 12 date and HTC logo. Now, fans are divided between those who think it’s the HTC 11 and those who believe it is the HTC X10. This is too difficult to ascertain right now. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more updates on HTC 11 and HTC X10.
