HTC U11 Plus and U11 Life have been subjected to various leaks and render in past few months. A recent tweet from popular tipster Evan Blass suggests two colour variants of the HTC U11 Plus – Silver and Black. Blass also suggests that the smartphone may come in a translucent back panel which means it might be a see-through glass. However, he also states that it could be a kind of colour depth effect.

HTC U11 Plus Specifications
The HTC U11 Plus is rumoured to feature a 5.9-inch show with very thin bezels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Earlier TENNA listings revealed that the display on the smartphone will be a QHD+ one with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 coupled with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. It will be available in two memory variants – 64GB and 128GB.
