HTC U 11 Render Leaks, Shows Glossy Red Colour Variant and No 3.5mm Jack
HTC U 11 leaks have been in abundance in the past, and we already know that the big highlight is set to be the Edge Sensor feature, which enables users to perform various functions by ‘squeezing’ the metal edges of the device. There’s also no 3.5mm audio jack, something that has been reiterated by the latest leak as well. The HTC U 11 has now appeared in a virtual render, showing the smartphone from all angles for the first time.
The virtual render has been leaked by noted tipster OnLeaks, and the video shows a vibrant glossy red HTC U 11. The render shows us that the left edge of the device is kept clean, while the right edge has the volume rockers and power button. The HTC U 11 is seen sporting the same glossy finish as the other ‘U’ devices launched earlier this year, and it also has no 3.5mm audio jack. The bottom edge of the device sports a USB Type-C port, a speaker grille, and two holes – perhaps for an in-call mic and noise cancellation? On the top edge, there’s also one hole for the mic, and one for ejecting the SIM/ microSD slot tray.
At the front we see the capsule shaped Home Button, underneath which the fingerprint sensor will presumably be placed. The screen seems to be spilling off the edges, but it’s not switched on to ascertain whether the display takes up all the real estate, or it’s just a design tactic of the render.
The HTC U 11 is expected to house a 3000mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. In terms of connectivity, the phone offers options including 4G LTE (dual-SIM in some markets), dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS with GLONASS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB 3.1 Type-C.
The fingerprint scanner embedded into its home button and come with water and dust resistance rating of IP57. In terms of audio features, the HTC U 11 is expected to offer HTC BoomSond, Hi-Res Audio, HTC Usonic (Active Noise Cancellation), and 3D Audio Recording.
