The HTC U11 is finally available in striking solar red in Malaysia. This is probably the most anticipated colour for the new HTC flagship joining its existing Brilliant Black, Sapphire Blue and Amazing Silver options. Depending on which angle you’re looking at, Solar Red transitions between red to gold to mimic the colours of a red rock canyon.
For those who don’t want to get the HTC U11 outright, Maxis is now offering the squeezable flagship smartphone on contract. Officially priced at RM3,099 in Malaysia, the HTC U11 from Maxis is offered from as low as RM1,499 on standard contract or RM70/month with its Zerolution program.
If you’ve been eyeing on the HTC U11, the moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. The squeezable flagship smartphone is now available for pre-order in Malaysia and it could be in your hands by end of this week.
“What were you thinking, HTC?!” was the first thought that ran through my head when I saw the Taiwanese company announce the U Ultra and U Play smartphones. HTC, the manufacturer that set the gold standard for the metal bodied smartphone, was ditching the one thing they did better than anyone else.
UPDATE: HTC U11 pre-order is now available in Malaysia.
The all new HTC U11 is finally here in Malaysia and it’s their new flagship smartphone that replaces its current HTC 10. Not only it has top rated specs, the U11 is also the world’s first squeezable phone made possible by HTC Edge Sense.
HTC Malaysia isn’t wasting any time with its latest flagship smartphone. The HTC U11 is launching in Malaysia next week, which is barely 3 weeks after its official reveal in Taiwan. This is HTC’s first real flagship for 2017 and it succeeds its current HTC 10 flagship smartphone.
HTC, famous for its premium built phones had made a drastic move this year with its U series. Ditching its metal build for glass is a huge gamble and the original U series didn’t really live up to expectations. That’s mainly due to its high pricing and underwhelming hardware for 2017.
Perhaps, the timing wasn’t right and HTC aims to make a comeback by releasing the U11 in conjunction with their 20th anniversary. According to HTC, the U11 is their real flagship successor of the HTC 10 while continuing its current glass approach of the U series. To stand out from the crowd, they have also introduced a new “squeezable” interaction feature.
Ahead of its big reveal, HTC has teased what appears to be a 360 video recording feature that’s built in with the HTC U 11.
