    While we are a few days away from the launch, the company has just released a new teaser for the event. Well, HTC's new teaser does not have the U symbol like the previous ones but it does show the back side of the smartphone. It does not show the full back side of the device, but it does give us some hints about the design of the smartphone.

    The teaser confirms that the HTC U11 Plus will most likely sport a single camera at the rear. There is an LED flash and what seems to be a secondary microphone at the sides of the camera. The fingerprint scanner is also placed below the camera and this is one noteworthy change as HTC U11 featured a front-facing fingerprint scanner. Further, the back side of the phone seems to combine metal and glass finish.

    That is pretty much that we can make out from the teaser. Besides, HTC U11 Plus also appeared on TENAA and it did show off the phone's design. As per the TENNA images, in terms of design, it showed that the smartphone has very small bezels on the sides and thin ones at the top and bottom. The rear portion appeared to have a glossy finish like the one its predecessor HTC U11. At the back, there was a single camera lens placed at the center with the fingerprint sensor below it. Basically confirming the features that the teaser has shown us.

     

    However the TENAA listing did not reveal any spec info, so it is still a mystery. Going by earlier rumors and leaks, HTC U11 Plus is expected to feature a 6-inch WQHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset will most probably be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and the smartphone could come in two variants in terms of memory. The base variant will pack 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. The higher variant will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
