With the launch of HTC 10 smartphone, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has brought a better competitor for other flagship devices. Initially, the company has announced to launch only the HTC 10 Lifestyle in China and India, but later both the devices are made available in top 2 largest smartphone markets. As we are already seeing many rumors about the upcoming flagship from the major manufacturers, now the specifications which are said to be of HTC 11 are posted on Weibo. Just like many other rumors, we don’t know the authenticity of these specifications.

The device is said to feature a 5.5-inch curved display Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. For comparison, the HTC 10 came with a 5.2-inch Super LCD5 display with Quad HD resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It might be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 830 processor. In the camera department, there will be a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. Though the HTC 10 also came with a 12MP, we expect the HTC 11 to feature improved sensor along with other upgrades. Both the front and rear cameras on HTC 10 are autofocus sensors and supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

It will be featuring an all metal body and few rumors also suggested the HTC 11 to sport dual rear camera setup. As the HTC 10 came with a 3,000mAh battery, the HTC 11 might feature a slightly bigger battery. The device will be running on the latest Android Nougat OS with the Sense UI laid on top. Last year’s HTC One A9 is the world’s first non-Nexus smartphone to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. As seen on its predecessor, the HTC 11 will be coming USB Type-C port and fingerprint sensor.

Recently, Techno Buffalo has posted the HTC 10 Evo (a.k.a HTC Bolt) images in black color, where the design looked almost similar to HTC 10. However, the HTC Bolt lacks the laser autofocus, and the dual LED flash is placed on the top of the rear camera. It will be sold via Sprint in the U.S and is said to be launched as HTC 10 Evo instead of HTC Bolt. The physical home button on the front comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor. It might run on Android 7.0 Nougat based Sense 8.0 UI on top. The textured power button along with volume rocker are placed on the right edge of the device, similar to HTC 10.

The speaker and USB Type-C port can be found on the bottom edge of the device. On the left edge, there are two slots which we expected to be for a single SIM and a MicroSD card. The chamfered edges of the metal body give a nice grip to hold on to the device. As it is the expected to be made official in the next few weeks, stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details.
