If you’ve been pining for a Google Pixel-like device but couldn’t stomach the thought of picking one up from grey importers, there’s good news. Today, HTC Malaysia launched their latest flagship smartphone, the U11+, a phone that some say started out life as a Pixel project.
UPDATE: HTC U11+ has landed in Malaysia with a RM3,099 price tag.
We are just days away from the new year and there’s already a new flagship smartphone launch that’s scheduled to take place in Malaysia very soon. As teased earlier, the HTC U11+ is coming to Malaysia and official distributor Brightstar has just sent out invites for the upcoming launch event that’s happening on 11 January 2018.
UPDATE: HTC U11+ Malaysian launch is happening on 11 January.
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.
The HTC U Ultra with its scratch resistant Sapphire Edition is getting a significant price cut in Malaysia. This is their former flagship that comes with secondary display and a whopping 128GB of storage.
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.
The HTC U11 is the world’s first squeezable smartphone that’s enabled by its pressure sensitive frame. To take its squeezable Edge Sense further, they are about to introduce a couple of new features which will be released very soon.
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.
