HTC unveils U11 flagship smartphone

HTC unveils U11 flagship smartphone

And yeah, HTC U11 is the first smartphone to come with Amazon Alexa on board, but sadly, it's only for the users in the US, UK, and other countries located where Alexa is available. It will be marketed in France on 1 June at a price of 759 euros, which places it below a Galaxy S8 but above a Huawei P10. As mentioned, it is powered by the 2.45GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. One with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage and other is 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The U11 is HTC's latest attempt to gain lost ground in the smartphone arena.

So there's the HTC U11. Its dual-LED flash helps with natural skin tones. And because Edge Sense is based on the actual pressure applied to the side of the device, it can be used in almost any condition - including while wearing gloves or in weather such as snow or rain that would normally be a challenge with capacitive buttons. Having said that, let us know what do you think about this smartphone. Do you find it interesting or silly?

The HTC U 11, the direct successor to 2016's HTC 10, comes with the "liquid design" of the U-Series that melds metal and glass to create a seamless design that's "both elegant to look at and to hold", says Mashable.


The HTC U 11 is rolling out across the world from next week, with pricing to be confirmed. However, the specifications of the device are now leaked out along with the design of the device. HTC U 11 will come in five colour options - white, black, red, blue and silver.

With a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and new glass and metal design, U11 is the ideal blend of high-end power with a striking aesthetic. Like with previous flagship models, the HTC U 11 too supports microSD card up to 2TB. Looking at the front of HTC U11 there are the same capacitive navigation keys and front-mounted fingerprint sensor as the U Ultra. The rear, on the other hand, makes do with a 12 megapixel camera that boasts of features such as 1.4-micron pixel, optical image stabilization, BSI sensor and so on. The camera can record videos with 5-axis OIS and EIS technology for a stable shoot. There is a 16MP front-facing camera with 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The handset measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm and weighs 169 grams. The U 11 comes with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The frame of the device detects the pressure from the fingers instead of touch.

HTC showed off its latest creation at a special media event streamed live over the web, in which it was keen to talk up the new input method, dubbed Edge Sense.

The rest of the specs include a 3,000mAh battery, IP67 water, and dust resistance along with BoomSound speakers. It runs Android 7.1 Nougat and supports Bluetooth 4.2, connectivity. Nevertheless, HTC is bundling a 3.5mm jack to USB Type-C converter in the box.
