HTC U11 Plus Launched In The Us: All You Need To Know

HTC U11 Life hands-on: The most interesting Android One device yet HTC U11 Life review: Hands-on with the U11's affordable squeeze

It'll come in two models depending on market: 64GB storage and 4GB RAM or 128GB storage and 6GB RAM.

HTC's Edge Sense technology also makes a return to the U11+ so if you enjoyed squeezing your phone, you can continue to do so here.

HTC Sense has been significantly stripped back over the years but the software experience will still be a little different between these two devices, even though they are nearly both vanilla Android. The company has launched another flagship smartphone for the year, HTC U11 Plus alongside HTC U11 Life at an event in the United States today. We'll be updating this hands on look with the details as soon as we know them.

In the camera department, HTC has equipped the U11+ with what looks like a similar 12MP UltraPixel 3 camera sensor as the U11 with an f/1.7 aperture lens (with OIS), but HTC says that they've done some tweaking so it's even better than the smaller device. It will also be available in T-Mobile stores nationwide and at t-mobile.com beginning November 3.

Oh, one other thing: this phone also has an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance, which means it can withstand submersion in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. This is a phone that you can hold for extended period of times without issue, and then easily forget about when you slip it into a pocket or bag.

The HTC U11+ does not feature 3.5mm audio jack.

On the base a USB-C port is joined by a single speaker, which doesn't have the same Boomsound HiFi feature as its more expensive namesakes - it results in a poorer audio performance, but it's no worse than its similarly priced competitors. It also comes in black and white colors, in addition to blue.

Arab coalition to probe civilian deaths in Yemen
Houthi rebels, who took control of Yemen's capital three years ago, blamed a Saudi-led coalition for conducting the airstrike. A vehicle was also targeted by Saudi fighter jets in the province's al-Dhaher District, killing two more civilians.

The U11 Life's LCD screen is slightly smaller, at 5.2 inches, and has a 1080p resolution instead of the 2K panel on the higher-end model.

HTC has optimized the Edge Sense feature on U11 Plus to offer more customizable experience to users. HTC promises an upgrade to Android Oreo within 30 days. Confusingly, this isn't some new version of Android - the HTC U11 Life actually runs Android 8.0 Oreo - instead, it's a certification that limits manufacturer customisations and guarantees both security and software updates for a certain amount of time; for three and two years respectively. We will keep you posted.

While we now have the full spec list of the handset, the pricing is still unknown. There is also a microSD card slot if you need some extra storage. The HTC U11 Plus boasts thea squeezable body that can summon AI assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa with a gentle squeeze.

The U11 had a great camera and HTC hope to continue this installing a 16MP shooter in the life as opposed to the 12 MP camera in the U11.

The rear camera is a 16 MP f/2.0 unit with 4K video recording, phase detection autofocus, and an LED flash. The U11 Plus has the same camera hardware and software as the flagship U11.

The new HTC U 11 Life comes with front and rear cameras on the front of the handset there is a 16 megapixel camera for video calls and Selfies, it comes with a BSI sensor and an f/2.0 aperture, it also has a range of Selfie features.
