Yes, the device will be a "Plus" variant of HTC U11 with the majority of the specs same as HTC U11. While the HTC U11 has a classic screen, the HTC U11 Plus codenamed as HTC Ocean Master will flaunt a near-bezel-less screen. Now, more details regarding this new HTC U11 Plus have been leaked.

The HTC U11 has been hailed as the most innovative smartphone of the year thanks to the squeezable frame that adds more ways to interact with the device than what most of us are used to, but the company has plans to take this to the next level with the launch of a new HTC U11 Plus later this year. We speculate that like the HTC U11 and HTC U Ultra smartphones, the U11 Plus will be also arriving with a premium design. This is a strong indicator that the HTC U11 Plus will have a bezel-less design.

Are you excited that HTC will finally turn over a new leaf as far as smartphone design goes? The company is also said to be working on a more premium variant of the device with 128GB of storage space and 6GB of RAM, hence utilizing a similar product strategy to the one it adopted with the HTC U11, though it's now unclear whether both models will be sold on a global level. The base model will be complemented with 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage while the 6GB RAM variant will get a whopping 128GB of internal memory.

As said earlier, the phone is expected to be announced on November 11, alongside the HTC Ocean Life smartphone, which is rumoured to feature a Snapdragon 630 SoC.

At the rear, HTC U11 Plus will feature the same 12MP primary camera as the U11, now ranked as the No.1 mobile camera by DxOMark Mobile.

A 12-megapixel camera is present on the rear side of the smartphone. On the front, the phone is expected to include an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The device is reported to boast an IP68 certification, which will make it water and dust resistance and it can be submerged up to 1.5 meters in water for 30 minutes.
