We reported a couple of weeks ago that HTC will announce a new U device on November 2. It was rumored that the new device will be HTC U11+ and those rumors have turned out to be true. HTC has officially announced the HTC U11+ and with this, it has officially entered the bezel-less display race with its new phone.
The phone comes with an 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 and comes with excellent viewing angles. It comes with Snapdragon 835 chipset with Octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo) CPU and Adreno 540 GPU.
There’s a single 12 MP camera on the back with f/1.7 aperture, phase detection autofocus, OIS, and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. The camera comes with UltraSpeed autofocus which is just another name of high-speed autofocus. The camera can record 2160p@30fps and 1080p@30/60/120fps videos. The front camera is 8MP with 85-degree field-of-view and f/2.0 aperture. It can record 1080p videos only.
The phone comes in 2 variants. A variant with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM; and a variant with 64GB storage and 8GB RAM. Of course, you’ll have to pay more to get the better variant. The memory is expandable by a Micro SD card up to 256GB. The HTC U11+ is IP68 water and dust resistant, which means that you can dip the phone in water up to 1.5 meters and 30 minutes.
HTC U11+ comes with a liquid surface back in Ceramic Black, Amazing Silver, and Translucent colors. The phone is powered by a big, 3,930mAh battery which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3. There’s a USB Type C port at the bottom which is used to juice up the phone. The phone does not come with a 3.5mm audio jack so you will have to rely on wireless headphones.
HTC U11+ is one of the first non-Google phones to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. It is priced at €799 and the phone is also expected to come in Pakistan with a price tag of around Rs. 70,000.
