HTC unveils new flagship device U11 globally

HTC U 11 is arriving after HTC U Ultra

The 6GB RAM version comes with 128GB storage, while the 4GB RAM version includes 64GB inbuilt storage.

There aren't a lot of details that have been officially revealed about HTC's upcoming smartphone.

However, all three devices each has a 12 megapixel rear camera, all of which also feature a variety of imaging technology created to compose images in different ways.

Unlike the Galaxy S8's Bixby button, the U11 Edge Sense can actually be mapped to more than one action. With the update, Sense will actively take a look at your calendar and remind you to charge the battery before heading out. Since the number 360 most likely indicates that we are talking about 360 degrees, this leaves us with two options - video or audio.

The front of the smartphone doesn't introduce anything insane like a gorgeous 'Infinity display' but retains the similar U Ultra look, with a 5.5-inch, Quad HD display.

HTC has finally launched its much-teased flagship smartphone for the year 2017, HTC U 11. Since the company has made a decision to launch the premium smartphones under the U series, the successor for the last year's HTC 10 is now launched as HTC U11. Global pricing is set at €749/£649/₹53766 approx/ $830 approx. However, the specifications of the device are now leaked out along with the design of the device. The HTC U11 comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display layered with Gorilla Glass 5. HTC has opted for Qualcomm's latest and most powerful chipset, the Snapdragon 835.

Smartphone camera aficionados will be pleased to hear that the 12MP UltraPixel 3 features a F/1.7 aperture as well as a 1.4μm pixel size. In the case of the Xperia XZ Premium its 4K HDR-compliant screen and 960fps slow motion video recording are both world-firsts that prove unquestionably enticing, even if they're not the primary reasons to buy it (find out what are by reading our full Xperia XZ Premium review). The device measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9 mm and weighs 169 grams.

For instance, HTC has confirmed that Amazon Alexa integration is coming, which means you'll be able to access Amazon's digital assistant directly through your phone through four microphones that are always listening.

Squeeze pressure can also be altered, and HTC says algorithms will detect and ignore "false squeezes", triggered by pockets, for instance. Initially, these in-app actions will be restricted to HTC apps such as the camera app, but in July the firm will be releasing an Edge Sense add-on via Google Play that will allow users to add customisable actions to any third-party app. The HTC 10 achieved a paltry IP53 certification, which basically meant it was wise to keep it as far away from water as possible.

Software: The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with HTC's own Sense UI on top. Other features include a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, GLONASS, but misses out on the 3.5 mm audio jack. There are five different finishes - Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White and Amazing Silver and Solar Red - but the glass seemingly changes colour as you tilt the phone around, making for a truly eye-catching device. As for the availability, the handset wil be launched in selected markets next week.
