HTC’s forthcoming flagship handset will be sold as the HTC U 11, according to reports on Friday.
It’ll also be available in five different colours, according to the report’s author Evan Blass. Ol’ @evleaks reckons those are white, black, blue, red, and silver, but he says they won’t be available in all regions.
The long-awaited handset is currently codenamed Ocean and will launch at an event on May 16, which HTC confirmed earlier this week.
Among the rumored specs are a 5.5-inch QHD display and the brand new Snapdragon 835 processor that also powers the new Samsung Galaxy S8.
Recent speculation has also suggested HTC is opting for 4GB RAM and a 12-megapixel snapper.
It is also expected the HTC U 11's most unique feature will be pressure sensitive edges, which can be squeezed to perform tasks like taking a photo or scrolling a web page.

The launch represents a chance for HTC to reassert itself among the smartphone elite following the underwhelming reception given to the U Play and U Ultra and the inability of the HTC 10 to convert critical acclaim into solid sales.
