If you weren’t that impressed by the HTC U Ultra or U Play handsets that were announced earlier this year, not to worry as it looks like HTC has a new flagship in the works in the form of the HTC U 11. We’ve been hearing about this handset for a while now, and thanks to recent benchmarks, we now know what to expect.
According to a recent sighting on Geekbench, a handset that is allegedly the HTC U 11 was spotted. Unsurprisingly the handset was spotted running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset which is to be expected of flagships launched in 2017. It also appears to come with 4GB of RAM and Android 7.1.1 Nougat as its OS of choice.
All of this is pretty standard, but what’s interesting is the fact that according to the Geekbench scores, it managed to get a 1,912 for single-core and 6,137 for multi-core, which is pretty close to what the Snapdragon 835-powered Samsung Galaxy S8 scored which was 1,915 and 6,106 for single and multi-core respectively.
That being said, benchmark scores are only one measure of a phone and things like an optimized software is also just as important, but it will be interesting to put the HTC U 11 through its paces when it is launched, which last we heard will be on the 16th of May.
