The HTC U11 is one of the best smartphones currently available on the market; The device is not only the current king of mobile photography , but also appeared at the top of the AnTuTu listing, surpassing even the iPhone 7 Plus .
Despite this, it can bring a salty price to some customers, which can cause its manufacturer to launch a cheaper and less robust version of the notebook while maintaining its main feature: pressure-sensitive edges.
According to the leaker LlabTooFer, the new device, internally identified as ‘HTC Ocean Life’, should bring a 5.2 “Full HD screen, 16 megapixel front and rear camera, 2600 mAh battery and Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Other technical specifications of the device include a Snapdragon 660 chip (instead of the SD835), which brings performance comparable to the Snapdragon 821 , putting the device in the mid-range category .
By bringing the edges to the touch, it is possible that there are not many changes in relation to the design.
There is still no official information on this device, let alone a forecast for launch and prices, but stay tuned for more details in the coming days, as we know that in the mobile industry it is very difficult to keep a secret these days.
The list of the most powerful smartphones tested at AnTuTu in May was released on July 1st, allowing us to get an idea of how the mobile technology market is going. To the surprise of many, however, it was not the flagships of Samsung or Xiaomi who stuck the highest average score in the benchmark tool, but it was the current HTC flagship.
The U11 scored on average around 180,079 points, ahead of the iPhone 7 Plus that even after almost a year of its launch remains firm in second place with 174,299 points. Closing the podium we have the powerful Mi 6 from Xiaomi , which is virtually tied with Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus , all in the 172,000 points.
It is worth noting the absence of very powerful models that have just hit the market and therefore have not reached a minimum number of users so that they could participate in the “competition” in AnTuTu, such as Sony Xperia XZ Premium and OnePlus 5, both carriers Of Snapdragon 835, in addition to Honor 9 that arrived with Kirin 960.
