HTC U11+ Announced With 6-Inch Display, 12MP UltraPixel 3 Camera And More

 

Today, HTC official announced their latest flagship smartphone, the U11+. The U11+ offers quite a few of the elements HTC introduced with the successful U11 that launched earlier this year, but improves certain elements to boost the appeal.




That includes an increase of screen size, with the U11+ offering a 6-inch Super LCD panel with a resolution of 2880×1440. HTC also reduced the bezels on the U11+, which should make it easier to use despite having the larger screen.


Meanwhile, the rest of the specs sheet reads like any other high-end flagship. There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood, with variants that offer either 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. There’s a miroSD card for expandable storage, a USB Type-C port, the battery measures in at 3930mAh, and the handset is IP68-rated for water and dust resistance. The handset is running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, under HTC’s Sense UI.

On the back, there’s a 12-megapixel UltraSense 3 camera with an aperture of f/1.7, optical image stabilization (OIS), and dual LED flash. On the front there’s an 8MP front-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.0.

The U11+ also features HTC’s Edge Sense, which means you can squeeze the phone to control certain software features.

The U11+ will launch in the United Kingdom on November 20 for £699 — the UK only gets the 6GB/128GB variant. When it launches wider in Europe, it will cost €799, but there’s no word on which markets will get the handset or when the exact launch date will be.
