1Rumored Features That Could Make the HTC 11 a Top-Notch Smartphone
HTC is preparing to introduce the HTC 11, the next generation of its top-of-the-line smartphone model. The handset is the follow-on to last year’s HTC 10 and will succeed the HTC U Ultra. Although HTC has kept its plans close to the vest, speculation has been flying over the features that will appear in the HTC 11. A recent report suggested the HTC 11 will offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 when the chip is released to device manufacturers. There’s also a chance the HTC 11 will offer an edge-to-edge display featuring a quad-HD resolution. Also rumored to be part of the HTC 11 are 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage. If the rumors are true, the HTC 11 could be an impressive device with broad appeal to consumers and enterprise users.
