HTC U 11 teaser claims "360 real-life recording" features
HTC is expected to officially unveil the U 11 smartphone this Tuesday, May 16th with unique touch-sensitive metal edges dubbed "Edge Sense". A new teaser, however, is showing that the upcoming flagship may have more up its sleeve including "360 real-life recording" capabilities. Exactly what the teaser is referring to is not known and could be interpreted in a number of ways.
It's unlikely that the U 11 would have the ability to record 360-degree videos as there have been no mentions of such a feature in any leak or existing knowledge of the smartphone. Instead, our guess is that the manufacturer is probably referring to a new panorama function with extra-wide radius lenses for easier snapshots and selfies.
Other than the ambiguous line, the video further teases the rounded design of the device.
The HTC U 11 will likely carry the Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4 GB to 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage space. The Taiwanese manufacturer originally toyed with the idea of pulling out of the smartphone market had the HTC 10 failed to sell in sufficient numbers, but the company appears to be moving forward with new smartphones in spite of weak performance numbers during its latest fiscal quarter.
