HTC launches HTC U11: Snapdragon 835, no headphone jack

HTC U11 beats Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 with highest DxOMark score

So, what's so unique about it design? Since digital voice assistants are gaining a lot of popularity, HTC's flagship also comes with Google Assistant. Be it launching the camera, any app or games or even your email, you can get it done by varying the intensity of your pressure on the edge sensitive zone. With 64GB of internal storage, users have also plenty of storage for their files. This so-called "Edge Sense" technology is without a doubt a standout feature. Or launch your favorite game (or any other app). What do you think about the hardware and design?

HTC U11 also joins the IP67 Bandwagon and is thus dust and water resistant. AvailabilityWhen will you be able to purchase the phone? A Beta version of the tool will be available from July 2017 and the software will be called Edge Sense Companion. Moreover, it is always on listening mode and will trigger the microphone closest to you to produce a more accurate voice transcription. The U 11 will have Google Assistant support first hand, but Alexa is said to arrive within 30 days of the device's official release in the US, UK and Germany. HTC also flagged up 3D sound recording for more immersive videos, and a 12-MP UltraPixel camera that's apparently the new number one smartphone camera in the independent rankings produced by DxOMark - again, we'll reserve judgement until we can test it out for ourselves. The device incorporates the all new Ultra Speed Auto Focus, which worked similar to the dual-Pixel technology. The rear camera can capture up to 4K videos and Full HD slow-mo videos at 120fps.

HTC is selling the unlocked variant of U11 which will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile Networks.

The HTC U11 also comes with a fingerprint sensor, camera-based face detection and a sensor hub for activity tracking.

The HTC U11 comes with U-sonic headphones. Besides, the smartphone offers 4G, USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 & 5GHz)), NFC, HTC Connect for wirelessly streaming media from the phone to compatible multi-room audio systems, TVs, portable speakers and home entertainment systems, Streaming media from the phone to compatible AirPlay, Chromecast, DLNA, and Miracast devices.

Unlike tapping and swiping on screens, the squeeze action can be performed with gloves on or in wet conditions. In addition, the headphones come with active noise canceling as standard. Thus it comes with liquid surface and metal unibody design. The handset measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm and weighs 169 grams. It will be available in five colors - Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White and Solar Red. Interestingly, the U11 is priced the same in the United States and Europe, that is $749 in the USA and 749 Euros in Europe. You can pick any one of a host of options that the smartphone is capable of doing when you simply squeeze it. But knowing HTC, the pricing could go way higher when it arrives in India.
