We’ve covered all the hardware that really matters, but we still have some passing curiosity as to what HTC can really pull off with the rumored U11 coming next week.
The phone, said to come with Android 7.1.1 and a Snapdragon 835, is more known for what you’ll have to squeeze — the pressure-capacitive sides. Edge Sense is said to be the standout feature that will enable more efficient one-handed use on a screen over 5 inches in diameter. Well, maybe that in itself isn’t enough to market the phone.
Fortunately for us, it seems that one GFXBench user has run a test on the phone (named “HTC U-3u” in the results) and the benchmark has been able to sort out some specs. Keep in mind that we’ve had three of these benchmark reads already with some differing spec read-outs mentioned. While the details aren’t 100 percent verifiable until release, we believe that the results affirm previous leaks and general expectations for a flagship smartphone in 2017.
Of course, you’re welcome to check for sure on May 16.
