While the HTC U11+ is a balls-to-the-wall upgraded version of the HTC U11, the company has also released a more watered-down and budget friendly version of their early-2017 flagship smartphone. It’s called the U11 Life and although this handset seems pretty uninteresting on paper, it does have one very interesting trick up its sleeve.
Did you like the HTC U11? I sure did and it was low-key one of my favourite phones last year, despite some of its weaknesses. I thought HTC was going in the right direction and it looks like they took that into consideration when designing their brand new HTC U11+ flagship smartphone.
Cherry on top? It looks like they’ve also fixed some of their smaller flagship’s biggest weaknesses. Yeah, you can get excited now.
HTC will be making a new device announcement tomorrow but looks like the cat is finally out of the bag. A hands-on video of the U11+ and the mid-range U11 Life has surfaced online, and it confirms almost everything we know so far about HTC’s next big thing.
HTC will be the next smartphone maker to jump on the big screen and thin bezel bandwagon. An announced has been confirmed for this week and it could be a phablet version of its current HTC U11 flagship smartphone.
Before the year is out, there’s one more flagship smartphone from HTC that’s expected to be called the U11+. Like the name suggests, this is the bigger brother of its current HTC U11 flagship smartphone.
A few days ago, we’ve seen its leaked 3D render and now we have a clearer view through its certification listing on TENAA.
HTC will be introducing a new large screen smartphone very soon. After Samsung, LG and Huawei had launched their tall and skinny 18:9 display smartphones, HTC will be releasing a “FullView’ smartphone of their own that is expected to be called the HTC U11 Plus.
Both had held their top positions pretty well but now there are two new smartphones that have beaten them to the punch by wider margins.
It was a nail-biting time for HTC fans as news broke yesterday that the company had suspended the trading of their shares pending a major announcement. Many speculated that this was the long rumoured “Google buyout” of HTC’s smartphone business which would lead to the company never making a new smartphone again.
Today, the deal has been finalised and while Google is going to spend USD1.1 billion on HTC, it’s not quite the buyout people had speculated.
