This Unique Feature Of HTC U11 Is A Game-changer

The U11 features a 5.5-inch Super LCD display with a resolution of 534ppi, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core CPU, as well as a curved all-glass body.

HTC calls this feature Edge Sense and states that it will work under most circumstances, such as when the owner is wearing gloves. Talking about its software fronts, the dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) HTC U 11 runs Google's latest Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with company's HTC Sense 9.0 custom skin running on top. It comes in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red.

Nigel Newby-House, HTC America's vice president of product planning, says that the tech firm hopes to introduce people to this new experience via its new flagship phone, the U11. The U11 will also be hosting two AI assistants, the Google Assistant along with Amazon Alexa and it will be really interesting to see how that fares. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and the phone has a liquid glass surface made with Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition.

Unveiled earlier today, the new U11 flagship smartphone from HTC comes with an unusual feature: the ability to control certain functions by squeezing the sides of the device. The verdict comes straight from the camera gurus at DxOMark and considering their benchmark status in ranking camera phones, well, the HTC U11 might just be off to a great start.




One area it defeats the Galaxy S8 is with its selfie camera that is designed with 16 megapixels capacity. The device also has a choice of digital assistants: the HTC Sense Companion, as well as Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa in certain countries (the USA, the United Kingdom and Germany).

Its connectivity options include 4G, LTE, 3G, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, Wi-Fi Direct, WLAN, Bluetooth, USB OTG, and USB Type-C. HTC USonic earbuds support HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi edition, active noise cancellation, 3D audio recording with four microphones, and Hi-res audio certified.

After the disappointing HTC U Ultra and U Play, the HTC U11 is the latest smartphone from the troubled Taiwanese company. With all these high-end specifications, the device is fuelled by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging. "The HTC U11's dual-pixel Phase-Detect Autofocus (PDAF) sensor produces some of the best autofocus performances of any mobile device we've tested, in both low and bright lighting conditions".
