The HTC U11, the successor to the HTC 10, has officially been announced. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Design-wise, the phone follows the all-glass "liquid surface" approach of the mid-range handsets HTC unveiled earlier in the year, so very attractive and glossy to look at, but perhaps not the best for fingerprint smudges. That means it's metal and glass - a departure from the all-aluminum unibody designs of past HTC phones - with curved panels that blend into the metal frame and vibrant, pearlescent colors. It will be available in five colour options - Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red.
After months of rumors and leaks, HTC's much-awaited U11 was launched today at an event in Taipei, Taiwan. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Some regions, most likely in Asia, will have a 6GB RAM/128GB dual-SIM variant. It is armed with 3000 mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
So there's the HTC U11. Along with 4K video recording, it can also record slo-mo videos at 120fps in Full HD resolution. The front camera is a 16MP unit with UltraPixel mode, BSI sensor, 1080p recording, and more.
One can even use squeeze functionality to use voice to text feature. That's how Alexa and Google Assistant will be enabled at the same time. The Alexa voice service will be available to customers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, the company said.
HTC U11 also features a technology called "Acoustic Zoom", which makes the audio sound louder as you zoom into a video. Users can also customise the Edge Sense functions.
However, HTC U11's most awaited feature is definitely the "Edge Sense" technolgogy, and to give you a hint about how it works, let us consider, for example, how this might help in capturing selfies. The frame of the HTC U11 is pressure sensitive, allowing you to press or squeeze along the sides in order to trigger shortcuts and actions. The U11 is IP67-certified, meaning it can survive being dunked up to 1m for 30 minutes. It's improved its USonic headphones so that they now boast of Active Noise Cancellation in addition to tuning audio specifically for a person's ear.
HTC U11 will also arrive with an included DAC adapter. However, we miss the 3.5 mm headset jack.
In pricing, the new U11 is also the cheapest of the three devices - starting at £649, while the S8 starts at £689 and the iPhone 7 Plus at £719.
