HTC Ocean Is Now Officially Known As HTC U 11
The upcoming HTC Ocean has just been leaked and it's not the HTC Ocean. The Chinese company will supposedly call its upcoming product the HTC U 11 in what is described as a "final retail branding".
The leak comes from VentureBeat contributor Evan Blass who is well-known in the industry for coming up with leaks that more often than not prove to be true. With his record, it may be assumed that HTC will indeed unveil the rebranded U 11 next. According to Blass, the new moniker is HTC's "effort to bridge past and present".
HTC's most recent smartphones were billed as the HTC 10, the HTC U Ultra and the HTC U Play. The "11" part of the new device's name follows last year's flagship smartphone, the HTC 10. The company then wanted to incorporate the two other smartphones which were introduced this year to the same line-up or family. The HTC U 11 will now be the premium member of the U lineup, as Blass reported. The popular leakster also said that the former HTC Ocean will adorn the company's signature paint job showcased in January. The upcoming HTC device will come in five different colors including black, white, silver, blue and red. However, some regions will not receive some of the colors.
Images of the upcoming HTC flagship smartphone were previously leaked in a video. Blass posted the said images in a tweet he posted on April 16 which said: "U saw it here first". The tweet also had a link to the possible specifications of the HTC U 11 attached to it. Blass reported in March that the former HTC Ocean will sport a 5.5-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) display. The handset will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The HTC U 11 will also come with the Sense 9 interface, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 16-megapixel front-facing one. According to Tech Radar, the HTC U 11 will still not have the traditional 3.55mm headphone jack. The HTC U 11, aka HTC Ocean, is expected to be launched during its May 16 event.
