After the HTC U Ultra phablet released in the first month of 2017, HTC is now making ways for it true 2017 flagship, the HTC U11 which just went official today.
The phone launches with a host of advanced specs, just as you’d expect from a flagship launching today. However, the HTC U11 does add some unique features into the mix.
- 5-inch QHD Super LCD display (2560 x 1440 resolution)
- Snapdragon 835
- 4GB of RAM
- 64GB of internal storage (microSD slot for memory increase up to 2TB)
- 12-megapixel main camera with 1.4um, f/1.7
- 16-megapixel selfie camera
- IP67 certification
- Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, HTC Sense
- 3,000 mAh battery
- Android 7.1 with HTC Sense
- HTC USonic earbuds + HTC BoomSound tech
- USB Type-C, USB 3.1
- No 3.5mm headphone jack
What distinguishes the HTC U11 from other smartphones available on the market today is the HTC the Edge Sense. Basically the Taiwanese company has embedded an array of sensors into the device’s metal frame which can distinguish different squeezes. The technology allows users to customize the Edge Sense to perform various functions. For example, a simple squeeze on the frame could open up the camera app or take a selfie.
On top of that the HTC U11 takes advantage of a total of three virtual assistants. There’s HTC own Sense Companion, the Google Assistant, but also Amazon’s Alexa; the latter won’t be available at launch and will be added later via a software update.
In Canada customers can already place a pre-order for the device on the official HTC website. It’s available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue and Brilliant Black for $999 CAD.
