HTC shows off U11 Plus’s edge-to-edge display in latest teaser
Early this morning, HTC released a second teaser image of the HTC U11 Plus. While the first image (shown below) gave us a look at the back of the phone, this new one shows off a portion of the front – giving us our first real look at the U11 Plus’ edge-to-edge display. The display itself doesn’t go to the very edge of the phone and there’s still a small bezel at the bottom of the screen, but it’s easy to see that this phone will have the highest screen-to-body ratio we’ve ever seen from HTC.
When this second image hit the web, we went back to look at the first image that HTC shared a few days ago and noticed something curious – the glass on the back of the phone is transparent. We not sure if HTC will offer a transparent glass-backed option for consumers to buy, the clear glass clearly shows a wireless charging coil below the HTC logo. HTC has featured wireless charging on a handful of its phones in the past, but none the flagship devices from HTC have had the technology built in since wireless charging doesn’t work with phones that are wrapped in aluminum.
The exposure has been bumped up in the image below so that you can better see the interior components of the U11 Plus beneath the glass.
With all the drama surrounding the Pixel 2 XL’s lackluster display, we’re eager to see what the public’s reaction to the HTC U11 Plus will be once it’s officially unveiled on November 2.
