HTC started 2017 by introducing the new HTC U Ultra and U Play last month. The HTC U Ultra is currently the top-end device from the Taiwanese handset maker. Meanwhile, the real successor of HTC 10 is still in the pipeline. A Weibo user posted a screenshot suggests the HTC 11 is in works.
As per the information from the screenshot, the HTC 11 will sport a display with Quad HD (2560×1440) pixel resolution. By default, it boots Android 7.1.2 Nougat with a layer of HTC Sense 9.0 UI on top of it. An octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset powers the phone with all eight Kryo 280 CPU cores.

The HTC 11 in the screenshots shows of sporting 6GB of RAM and 128GB built-in storage. That makes sense for the Snapdragon 835 chipset package integrates Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec that adds Native DSD (Direct Stream Digital) and PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) of up to 32bit/384KHz. In short, high-resolution audio files which are more than twice the size of an average MP3 file can be loaded and played.
Apart from the screen, we expect HTC to bring significant changes in its camera department. However, there’s no way to confirm whether the company will continue using its UltraPixel technology and have dual camera setup at the rear.
The display resolution in the screenshot and IMEI number certainly raises doubts. We suspect that this might be one of the HTC 11 prototype units. There is no way we can confirm any of the above information about HTC 11 is true. Hence we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt.[Source: Weibo]
