HTC U11 Plus rumored to feature 6-inch 2:1 aspect ratio display
Some criticized the HTC U11 for having a standard 16:9 display when the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 both had 2:1 displays this year. Since there’s nothing HTC can do about the U11, rumor has it that the coming HTC U11 Plus (codenamed HTC Ocean Master) will be equipped with a new 5.99-inch, 2:1 aspect ratio display from Japan Display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880. This display will likely be the same panel Huawei will be using on the upcoming Mate 10.
Surprisingly, little is known about the HTC U11’s design. We’re assuming that it’ll have the same design as the U11 on the back of the phone, but the front should have significantly thinner bezels thanks to the 2:1 display panel.
Other HTC U11 Plus specifications are said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, a 12MP main camera (likely the same as the U11’s), an 8M front-facing camera, USonic headphones, IP68 dust and water resistance and the option to choose between 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage or 6GB of RAM which will come with 128GB of storage.
Like the U11, HTC is expected to launch the U11 Plus as a global device. This means that HTC will be selling the phone unlocked through its website in most regions, but there’s no guarantee that it’ll be sold by service providers.
