Taiwanese tech company HTC is back on the headlines. Leaks about the group's new flagship have been recently revealed on a post by an unknown informant. It is perceived that the upcoming HTC 11 unit will be launched early in 2017. Based on previous releasing schedules, the Taiwanese firm has often targeted the first four months of the year since 2013 as its revelation period.
An earlier leak has been initially bared by popular tipster Evan Blass who said that the new device was named 'HTC Ocean.'
Details of the latest rumors have floated on Weibo, China's micro-blogging site that is equivalent to the Twitter domain. Although the service is known to provide factual information, there is no guarantee that what the messaging platform is saying as of late is actually true.
It has been known that the HTC 11 will possess a 5.5-inch surface with a 1,440 x 2,560-pixel QHD resolution. The pixel density is similar to what has been embedded on the HTC 10.
It has also been tipped that the item will have a 12-megapixel rear camera with an 8-megapixel lens upfront. The frontal photo snapper is an upgrade from the previous unit.
With Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 chip currently available, it is highly likely that the new handset will be equipped with the most powerful android processor so far. The probability that the upcoming device will become the first to operate the Snapdragon is high considering that HTC has collaborated with the chipmaker on more than a few occasions.
Qualcomm has pointed out that its 835 chip is 40 percent more efficient than the previous Snapdragon 820. With the Quick Charge 4.0 system in place, charging period has been narrowed down by 20 percent.
It is also anticipated that the HTC 11 will be running the Android 7.0 Nougat. In addition, the RAM will be featuring an 8GB capacity with 256GB of memory space.
Moreover, it also rumored that the new Taiwanese handset will have a 3,700mAh battery. Compared to its predecessor's 3000mAh power cell, this will be a huge upgrade.
