HTC videos highlight the benefits of U11+ and U11 Life

HTC videos highlight the benefits of U11+ and U11 Life

On the front we've got huge, dated bezels and dated capacitive buttons, but for $350, this is acceptable. The front-facing camera can record 1080P videos at 30fps.

The camera lens sticks out a bit, and that's a combo MicroSD/SIM slot on the top. There is a fingerprint reader below the display and the same "liquid surface design" that HTC made famous with the original U11 earlier this year. The former is a plus-sized variant of the U11 which highlights slimmer bezels, while the U11 Life falls in the mid-range category and comes in two versions - Android One and Sense. We will keep you updated if that plan changes, but for now HTC's official stance is it won't be bringing the U11 Plus to those in the US. So, why is the price so much lower?

There is no headphone jack in the U11+ but what you do get is 30 percent louder BoomSound speakers. The glass back is gone, replaced with a plastic coated to look just like the flagship U11. There are at least no squeaks or creaks here, which is good, but the phone feels hollow. It adopts a 6-inch Super LCD-6 display with support forHDR10 and with a DCI-P3 colour gamut. Powering the whole package is a 2600mAh battery, and to recharge that battery, the U11 Life has a USB Type-C port.

Also like a lot of flagships, there's no headphone jack.

We don't know for sure when the HTC U11 Plus will land, but the phone has now been officially unveiled so we know most of the details. As a kind gesture, HTC has also bundled its active noise-cancelling earphones, which should provide a stellar audio experience to the user.

The Edge Sense feature from the U11 retains its place with additional features. With the U11 Life missing out on a spot on Fi, both companies seem to be on the losing end. Even if I lower the setting to the lowest threshold, it's hard to activate reliably. The + is running Google's latest Android 8.0 Oreo release, it comes with a huge battery, and HTC added tons of software features that take advantage of the squeezable frame, known as Edge Sense. However, there is another version that is launched in the USA running Android 7.1 based on HTC's Sense UI. Now we know why: that's what it was initially intended and created to be. Hardware and cameras Of course, when we are talking midrangers, it's expected that the internal hardware is where most of the corner-cutting has happened. HTC hasn't announced release dates for all regions as of now, but if you're in the United Kingdom, you can buy one starting November 20th for £699. The handset can be obtained unlocked for $349, or from T-Mobile.
