The HTC U Ultra is rumored to have a 6-inch display and will be available in Black, White and Blue. The phablet will not carry a 3.5mm earphone jack but will use the Type-C USB port. On the other hand, the HTC One X10 is said to feature a 5.5-inch screen. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6755 SoC with an octa-core 1.9GHz CPU, and the Mali T860 GPU. The rear camera weighs in at 16.3MP with a front facing 7.9MP snapper. Finally, 2017 flagship-type specs are expected for the HTC 11. That means a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution and perhaps the recently unveiled Snapdragon 835 chipset will power the phone.
