HTC U 11 teaser claims "360 real-life recording" features
A teaser launched just days ahead of the official reveal is seemingly hinting at 360-degree recording capabilities, but this is likely an exaggeration for extra-wide front and rear camera sensors.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
