Smithy , 12 May 2017Do you think it will support wireless chargingProbably not. But maybe?
I think wireless charging is really overrated anyway. 4 years ago when it was NEW I was nuts about it, but now I could care less. I had it on my S7 last year and it constantly didn't work right. Even when I put it RIGHT on the center of the charger, it would still F up and not charge right. Other issues are 1) It creates more DIRECT heat with the phone battery, which wears it down sooner 2) The fastest wireless charger is only QC 2.0, but now we have QC 3.0 which is even faster, so I don't know why anyone would wanna be stuck with 2.0 if you could have 3.0. Plus it costs more money to buy a charger, and not everyone gives you a free one like Samsung did with my S7 last year. Just sayin' lol................
It may have a good battery life as it will have a more efficient processor than the U Ultra that scored 81h endurance rating with the SD821. Which is only a few hours behind the S8 and S8+.
You've forgotten Usound that test your internal hear and adapt the equalization (only with headphone). It would reduce noise too...

Not sure. Maybe? I'm still gonna MAINLY use the back camera if I get the U 11. I only take selfies once in a great while.
The newest leak indicates that the body may not be metal but perhaps either glass or else I'm HOPING a glass/metal hybrid. It says: "Fluid and reflective; designed to be quiet no more." The "quiet no more" part indicates they may be trying something new since the U Ultra DOES have a glass back, so hopefully if it's not metal it's metal/glass. I just hope if it is that it's shatterproof.
Puzzling as to why the selfie camera (f/1.7) aperture would be larger than that of the main camera (f/2.0). i guess HTc is hoping users will take more pics with the selfie, no ?

Yeah the M8 was awesome! I rooted it (only time I ever did that) so that I could install the Harman/Kardon mod on it, which noticeably improved the sound quality! I really loved that phone too. All their phones are nice looking and very premium in design as well!

Maybe one of these days I'll buy a new m8 just to add it to my collection of phones and I do still have my trusty m7 even now,I will never sell it.

That's awesome that you've consistently been buying the HTC One phones. That says something about quality, though I really didn't love their cameras until the 10 came out. (I owned the M8 and my sister owned the M9. I loved my M8!)
I agree. I really hope it's got a metal and not glass back on it (U 11). I also am hoping they put in a bigger battery than the 10's 3000 mAh one. Yes I agree........they do! Just hoping they don't cheap out on the audio like they did on the U Ultra. That's a deal breaker for me if they do. The 10's audio WIPED THE FLOOR (for both sound quality and volume) over other phones' aside from the LG V20. The 10 is still better than V20 IMO b/c I dislike phablets. lol
I have owned the HTC m7,m8,m9 and I currently have a Htc 10 but I admit my G5 has far better battery life than the 10 but I do hope they have included a much larger battery in the HTC u 11 and I hope it will be made of metal and it won't be like the cheap feeling Htc u ultra.
The specs so far for this phone sound promising indeed.
New official U 11 leak of back of U 11 box with specs!
Thoughts??! Hopefully what Phone Arena says about battery being 4000 mAh is true.
kfat, 30 Apr 2017Battery should be above 3600 mah
God. If it was even 3500 mAh I'd be ECSTATIC! lol

Wow you owned all of the last 4 eh? Nice! I had the M8 and loved it too.
The U Ultra was a glass-back phone, but I don't think they're going to do that for the U 11. We'll find out soon enough though (May 16th). I'm REALLY happy with my 10, so if the U 11 doesn't do it enough for me, I'd be perfectly fine with keeping it 'til next year, esp since I only just got it in January. I had the Glacier Silver 10 last summer for about a week, but went with the Xperia X Performance instead. I realized later I was better off and switched back to HTC as Sony has gone downhill in both the battery life and audio departments. Camera is the only thing it does better really, but with the 3 major camera updates the 10 has gotten already, I feel it's very close now. The XZ Premium though does look really cool though.
Yeah, I hope the U 11 has the same killer DAC as the 10, and also "USB over analog" built into its MicroUSB-C port, or else having the killer DAC won't matter.
