This follows a January 2017 launch for the HTC U Ultra, which is the flagship phablet in the new line-up.

Back in April, Evan Blass, a trustworthy leaker, announced that neither rumor is correct.

The site also has a run down of the specs, which mirrors what we've seen in previous links. This information reportedly arrived from an individual briefed on the company's plans. The phone is also set to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. Internal storage is pegged at 64 GB. Once the device is launched, the availability and the pricing of the device will be known.

The report also points out that the U 11 will go on sale on May 19 in Taiwan after its unveiling on May 16. It sports a 5.5-inch Super LCD 5 display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution and is protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

In Japan, companies such as Hitachi and Nissan reported problems but said their operations had not been seriously affected. The malicious software infects a computer and restricts users' access to it until a ransom is paid to unlock it.

Some expected that the HTC U 11 would come with dual rear camera setup but it looks like that's not happening. On the front of the handset will be a 16MP selfie camera with UltraPixel technology.

The device will reportedly come with HDR+ which may be HTC's take on Google's HDR+ algorithm which stacks images together and reduces noise to result in very sharp and noise-free images. Perhaps this is the reason why we might not get to see a high screen-to-body ratio on the U 11 since there are lots of consumers who prefer high-quality audio emanating from their mobile devices. It is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and is mentioned to support QuickCharge 3.0 instead of QuickCharge 4.0.

The major highlight of the HTC U 11 is its unique Edge Sense feature.

One important detail from this specifications list is the fact that nowhere will you find a 3.5mm headphone jack listed, meaning that HTC has made its decision on how we will be listening to audio on our flagship smartphones from now on.
