What appears to be a portion of the art that would appear on the retail box for the HTC U 11 has been leaked.

After announcing the HTC U Ultra and U Play earlier this year, the Chinese smartphone maker is all set to launch the upcoming HTC U11 on May 16. The company's chief told the press that it was always going to be interested in the latest silicon for its phones. The processor is paired with 4GB of RAM. The HTC U 11 scored 1912 on the single-core test and 6137 on the multi-core test. The scores seem to be pretty much similar to that of the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Any Snapdragon 835 phone out of HTC sounds like a good idea at this point. The U 11 managed a score of 1,912 for single-core and 6,137 for multi-core.

Thanks to a report by DroidHolic, a Geekbench result has leaked out online, where the HTC U11 flagship does not fair too well against the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Coming to the internals, the HTC U 11 will be equipped with the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm, 6GB RAM, and up to 128GB of internal storage space (there will be a 64GB storage variant as well). The teaser shows people squeezing several objects, which reminds us of the Twitter post by HTC which reads: "Squeeze for the Brilliant U". The Edge Sensors will allow users to activate as well as scroll through apps and more. The company is rumored to unveil the HTC 10 successor under the HTC 11 moniker, and the device has officially made its way to benchmarking site Geekbench revealing its CPU performance.

A recent leak had suggested that the U 11 would feature Snapdragon's latest processor, but failed to confirm whether it would indeed be the Snapdragon 835. For the front, there is a 16-megapixel camera with 80-degree wide-angle lens for selfie and video calling.
