Rumors have been in the air from a couple of weeks that HTC is going to announce a new U device on November 2. And those rumors turned out to be true, after HTC officially announced the new HTC U11+ on the same date.
HTC U11+ is probably the most exciting phone the company has ever made. The phone features a bezel-less, 18:9 6.0-inch Super LCD6 display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The phone competes with all the latest smartphone currently available in the market as it comes with Snapdragon 835 chipset with Octa-core CPU and Adreno 540 GPU. It comes in 2 variants, one with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM; and the other with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM.
The HTC U11+ is IP68 water and dust resistant. There’s a single 12 MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, phase detection autofocus, OIS, and dual-LED flash. The front facing camera is 8MP with 85-degree field-of-view and f/2.0 aperture and can record 1080p videos.
One of the most amazing thing about the flagship is its battery. The phone is powered by a big, 3,930mAh battery which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3. There is a USB Type C port at the bottom, but no 3.5mm audio jack is included.
The U11+ will be one of the first non-Google phones to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo and will have HTC’s lightweight Sense UI theming over the top. The device comes in three colors: Ceramic Black, Amazing Silver, and Translucent colors.
HTC U11+ is priced at €799 and is also expected to come in Pakistan with a price tag of around Rs. 70,000.
