HTC Releases HTC U 11 Launched

The first batch of orders will begin shipping on 1 June. The 6GB RAM version comes with 128GB storage, while the 4GB RAM version includes 64GB inbuilt storage. "It has a 5.5" QHD display on the front, which is covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top for protection.

Talking about the cameras, HTC said that the cameras used in the new smartphone have received the highest ever DxOMark Mobile score of 90. By the looks of it, the Edge Sense technology on HTC U11 will work well with bumper cases or soft cases and gloves, but not with hard cases. Would you be interested in buying this when it comes to India? The $50 amount will be automatically deducted from $649 bringing the price of the flagship phone down to $599.

The Taiwanese firm has already launched two phones this year - the mid-range U Ultra and U Play - to a mixed response.

This is the next flagship smartphone from HTC and you won't regret buying it. HTC U11 launched and this is the third smartphone to be launched running Snapdragon 835 processor following Samsung and Xiaomi.

Earlier this month, we exclusively reported about the box art of the HTC U 11 which confirmed the specs of the phone. However, the specifications of the device are now leaked out along with the design of the device.

The U11 will arrive in United Kingdom later this year in five funky colours including Amazing Silver • Solar Red • Brilliant Black and Ice white.

The HTC U 11 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution, so it will be smaller than U Ultra when it comes to physical dimensions. It can also be further expanded up to 2TB via memory card. There's also the usual array of NFC, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi support as well as a fingerprint sensor, light sensor, proximity sensor, magnetic sensor, and gyroscope. Around back there's a 12-megapixel camera with UltraPixel 3 technology, dual LED flash, OIS and EIS.

Want sharp selfies? Then you'll be pleased to know that the phone packs a 16MP front-facing camera, with the same "HDR Boost" tech. The device also has a 3,000mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 support. Weighing 169gm, it measures 153.9*75.9*7.9. The Edge Sense in U 11 lets users squeeze the the smartphone to perform specific tasks such as clicking pictures, typing quickly or opening Gmail. More detailed information about the HTC Edge Sense will be known once it is officially launched.

The latest flagship by HTC also comes with an IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, which means it is dust tight and can withstand being immersed in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.

The "3D audio recording" on the U11 uses four microphones. The manufacturers housed the device with artificial intelligence which they named as HTC Sense Companion. You will also need to connect the headphone using USB type-C, as there is no 3.5mm audio jack.
