It has been rumored that the new HTC U 11 which arrives in less than 2 weeks, follow the path of other smartphones in its class and drop the antiquated headphone jack.

HTC has announced that its new flagship smartphone will arrive on May 16.  The new smartphone is codenamed “Ocean”.  The actual name is speculated to be HTC 11 or HTC U.  HTC has posted a video on their website with the words, “Squeeze the Brilliant U”, hence the idea of HTC U.

The smartphone is reported to have a high-quality metal build.  The rear camera is placed on the middle upper portion of the device similar to previous HTC offerings. A promo video showed that the new HTC will also have an edge-to-edge display with fully functioning curved edges that allow the user to launch and operate apps with the flick of the thumb.

Yes, the headphone jack is reported to be gone on this new HTC offering, but just as Apple did with the iPhone 7 and 7Plus, there will be some sort of adapter that allows you to still use your existing headphones.

The HTC U will come with Gorilla Glass 5 protection which provides safeguards against scratches and drops from 5.2 feet onto rough surfaces up to 80 percent of the time. There is also water resistance at up to 3.2 feet for up to 30 minutes thanks to IP 57 certification.
