The HTC U Ultra had recently gotten a significant price cut from RM2,599 to RM1,999. For those who are hoping for an even lower price, you can get one today at the price of a new mid-range smartphone.
It looks like another flagship smartphone might land in Malaysia before the year is out. The HTC U11+, which is the bigger brother of the U11 has just gotten the green light from SIRIM. If you’re looking for a Pixel 2 XL alternative, this could be it.
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.
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.
