HTC unveils new flagship device U11 globally

HTC U11 beats Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 with highest DxOMark score

Its screen is also protected with Gorilla Glass 5 for durability and toughness.

HTC officially unveiled its flagship smartphone for 2017 during a special press event in Taipei, Taiwan. HTC U 11 will be available in five colour options - fantastic silver, sapphire blue, brilliant black, ice white and solar red.

The HTC U11 was leaked some hours ago, but now, the Taiwanese brand has officially revealed the smartphone to all.

HTC is gearing to launch its U 11 smartphone today. Under the hood is the 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835 SoC built on the 10nm FinFET process. On the battery front, it has a 3000 Mah unit with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which claims to deliver a talk time of up to 24.5 hours and standby time of up to 14 days.

HTC is selling the unlocked variant of U11 which will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile Networks.

The HTC U11 12MP camera is equipped with an f/1.7 aperture lens which should help in capturing better photos in low lighting conditions.

The HTC U Ultra comes in dual SIM and single SIM versions with both operating on 850/900/1800/1900MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks. The camera can record videos with 5-axis OIS and EIS technology for a stable shoot. The front-facing camera will also let users take selfie panoramas. The manufacturers housed the device with artificial intelligence which they named as HTC Sense Companion.




The video also demonstrates taking a picture using the feature, summoning the Google Assistant and Google Search from the homepage.

By using "HTC Edge Sense for Voice-to-Text", the user can lightly squeeze, speak a message and send texts on the go. The Alexa voice service will be available to customers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, the company said.

The HTC U11 features a metallic frame that comes with an array of sensors at its bottom half.

The S8 does also support Google Assistant, and has its own artificial intelligence program, called Bixby, but full support for Bixby is yet to launch in the UK.

You can even customize the squeeze gesture: open email with just a squeeze.

HTC is calling this technology Edge Sense and the firm is boasting that it's a revolutionary approach that gives users a more intuitive control over their phone than ever before. The frame of the HTC U11 is pressure sensitive, allowing you to press or squeeze along the sides in order to trigger shortcuts and actions. As rumored, the phone doesn't have a headphone jack, but the company will ship adapters with the phone. The device reportedly can be fully charged in less than 30 minutes. Also, the bundled USonic headphones come with active noise cancellation, but it will be available while listening via USB Type-C only. HTC says that the level of force can also be adjusted.
