Taiwanese company HTC is likely to announce a Windows Phone version of its popular M8 flagship later this month, but it appears that you could also get to see a new mid-range handset under its Desire series very soon.
Believe it or not, HTC is expected to unveil a new mid-range phone, which may feature a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset. The leaked info, including alleged images and highlighted specs, comes courtesy of @upleaks.
It has been learnt that HTC is working on a new 4.7-inch handset codenamed ‘HTC A11'. The forthcoming device seems to be a special, as it will come stuffed with a 1.4GHz quad-core (64-bit) Cortex-A53 CPU, and an Adreno 306 GPU, though no word on RAM size and on-board storage. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 CPU was officially announced in December last year.
The HTC "A11" will reportedly sport a mediocre 4.7-inch display having a resolution of 480x854-pixels. It will also ship with a 5MP rear-facing camera, alongside a VGA quality font-facing shooter. Apparently, the handset will run on the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat with HTC's traditional Sense 6.0 UI layer on top.
Going by the leaked images, we can hardly find the device appealing in nature. It appears to be made out of shiny polycarbonate plastic. Also, it won't come with HTC's award winning dual-frontal speakers, too. Of course, there's always the possibility that the handset shown here is fake.
HTC is holding an event on August 19 in the U.S., where the company will unveil its upcoming ‘HTC One (M8) for Windows'. There is a possibility that we might get to see the HTC A11, alongside a Windows Phone 8.1 version of the HTC One (M8). We'll keep our eyes and ears open for any info related to HTC A11.
