HTC U11+ announced with SD 835, 6GB RAM, 6.0-inch QHD+ Display

HTC U11+ announced with SD 835, 6GB RAM, 6.0-inch QHD+ Display

Early 2017's HTC U11 is an impressive phone, receiving 4.5 stars in our review, but the company seems to be aiming for that final half a star with its newly launched bigger and better version. However, if you live in the USA, you will be disappointed because the device will only be offered in Europe and Asia only. The report adds that the design and other elements on the HTC U11+ were kept to make it part of the Pixel portfolio. The report had also pointed out that this time around the device was associated with HTC branding.

- What will it cost?

What do you think about the HTC U11 Plus? 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. The U11 Life will be put on sale by T-Mobile on Friday, and HTC's website will start selling the unlocked model on the same day.

It will be available in the United Kingdom on 20th November for £699 and in Europe for €799. Let us know in the comments. The HTC U11 Life is backed up by 3GB and GB RAM coupled with 64 GB internal storage. The HTC U11 plus has a 6 inch Quad HD (2880 x 1440) Display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

HTC hasn't said much about which countries will get the U11 Plus. It even offers IP68 water and dust resistance, which is better than the Moto Z2 lineup's "splashproof" rating.

There's glass on the rear of the phone and the fingerprint sensor sits on the back too.

The position of the USB-C port and down-facing speaker have been swapped for some reason. The phone has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at the front and at the back.

The HTC U11+ sticks on to a single rear camera with 12MP resolution and also the 3.5mm headphone jack is absent as well. The camera also has an aperture of f/1.7.

The front camera has been changed and now it is an 8 megapixel sensor instead of 16 megapixels to improve low light performance. The HTC Evo 3D smartphone comes with an ability to record 3D videos within the builtin cameras.

An 8MP camera sits on the front of the phone, with an 85 degree field of view as well as HDR Boost and Selfie panorama, so you should be able to fit all of your mates into your selfie shots.

Otherwise, you're getting a lot of what you'd also get on the standard U11, including Edge Sense, the squeezable sides that Google coopted for the Pixel 2. The HTC U11 features a 3,000mAh battery while the U11 Plus has a 3,930mAh battery. Like most of its rival Android phones, the U11+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and it will be available in a 128GB version, offering up to 2TB with a microSD card. Google this year has been reported to be going back and forth with its manufacturers for the latest Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

The Edge sense squeeze feature basically allows you to perform basic tasks like opening an app, launching the assistant or taking a screenshot by just squeezing the phone.
