It’s been a few weeks since HTC revealed their latest flagship phone, the U11 but now it’s officially available, even though as of right now, it’s out of stock.
The U11 has a similar design to the U Ultra, with a metal and glass body with a back that is super shiny (and a fingerprint magnet) and IP67 water & dust resistant. It’s being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM.
The screen is a 5.5-inch QHD Super LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5. There’s 64GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The battery is 3,000 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
The U11 has a unique feature called Edge Sense, where you can literally squeeze the phone to active different phone functions or launch apps. It also has HTC BoomSound speakers, a USB Type-C port, and no headphone jack.
The device is running Android 7.1 with HTC Sense and comes with the Google Assistant and if you’re in the US, you can use Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.
The rear-facing camera on the U11 is a 12-megapixel UltraPixel 3 camera and DxoMark rated it at 90, which beats out the Google Pixel’s camera (which HTC made for Google).
As of right now, the HTC U11 is out of stock on both HTC’s Canadian and US site and shows a ship time of 2-4 weeks. In Canada, the unlocked U11 cost $899 CAD while in the US, it’s $649 USD and comes in three colours, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black and Amazing Silver.
