HTC 10 was a great overall flagship smartphone. The Taiwanese tech major revamped the design, added new features and upgraded the specifications to make it company's best bet to fight the likes of Samsung, LG, Sony and Apple's 2016 handsets.
However, something was still missing and the handset did not manage to win the hearts of smartphone enthusiasts around the globe. It kind of lost in the hype created by other flagship devices.
Now after six months of HTC 10 launch, the company is in the process of bringing its successor in the form of HTC 11. As noted, HTC considers the first two quarters of the year start as the ideal timeline to launch company's products.
And we believe it's right time to discuss about the features HTC 11 will bring to the table. That said, here's what we expect HTC to deliver with the new flagship smartphone.
5.5-inch Quad HD dual-edge display with BoomSound
The 5.5-inch footprint is becoming an industry standard for flagship handsets and we believe the new HTC 11 will boast a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS LCD panel with an enhanced wide colour gamut. As per a leaked information, HTC 11 might flaunt a dual-edge display matching the likes of Samsung Galaxy Edge series handsets.
The display will be accompanied by HTC's signature BoomSound speakers to deliver a rich multimedia experience.
Upgraded All Metal Unibody Design with Water-Dust resistivity
HTC revamped the design with the 2016 flagship handset- HTC 10, and we are expecting HTC 11 to flaunt the similar look and feel with some noticeable upgrades. It will be a unibody metal design with water and dust resistivity to make it survive the accidental water spills.
Besides, we also expect HTC to make the new smartphone VR ready with a bundled VR headset.
Dual-Camera Setup with Optical Zoom and DSLR level Effects
The camera will be the highlight of the new HTC 11 smartphone. As noted, HTC was one of the pioneers in the dual-camera setup technology and we believe the company will introduce a newly designed dual-camera setup on HTC 11 to take on LG G5, Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Huawei P9.
HTC 10 introduced the world's first Dual OIS technology to smartphone market and we expect the Taiwanese tech giant to further step up the game with the camera on HTC 11.
Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the box
At the time of launch, HTC 11 will bring Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the box. The handset will have all the latest features of latest Android mobile OS, but not the Google Assistant because the Artificial Intelligence equipped software is exclusive for Pixel series handsets.
Besides, HTC 11 will have the latest version of HTC Sense UI with enhanced software features.
Top-of-the line Hardware
HTC 11 will be a no compromise flagship smartphone, possibly featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC accompanied by no less than 8 GB RAM. This is because Samsung has introduced its latest 8GB RAM package that might power the upcoming Galaxy S8. To match the competition, HTC might also integrate humongous 8GB RAM to support multitasking.
HTC 11 is also expected to boast a 256 GB internal storage variant with microSD support.
