HTC U11+ Announced At A Price EUR 699

The HTC U11+ in Translucent Black

Numerous features of the new U11 Life are similar to original U11. Do you miss out on a lot?

As you can see, Google Project Fi is meant to help you save more money, but this idea somehow became redundant when the tech giant jumped from the Nexus program to the new Pixel program, which targets premium spenders, at least to be fair. Getting the latest version is great but it's also an Android One phone, as the logo on the back shows.

So HTC's new U11 Life phone isn't unique for removing the headphone jack - but it is unique for the solution it presents instead.

With the HTC U11+ priced at £649, it's unsurprising if it's the kind of phone which is appealing but simply out of your budget. Don't rush to the conclusion that the midranger actually has a better camera, however. HTC will sell the U11 life with 3 GB of memory and 32 GB of onboard storage, or as a higher-end configuration with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It will only come to the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, not the U.S., starting this November.

The Android One version of the HTC U11 Life is going to be launched in Germany first through Amazon and Media Markt. Interestingly, the Android One version of the Moto X4 is limited to the USA market while the rest of the world gets the one with Motorola's software.

When it comes to software the U11 Life comes with Android 8.0 Oreo.




To recap, the U11+ sports a 6-inch Super LCD 6 QHD display (18:9), Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, a 12MP UltraPixel 3 camera, and 3930mAh battery. The front-facing camera can record 1080P videos at 30fps.

An 8MP camera sits on the front of the phone, with an 85 degree field of view as well as HDR Boost and Selfie panorama, so you should be able to fit all of your mates into your selfie shots. HTC has strangely made a decision to "downgrade" the selfie camera to an 8MP unit. In addition, the display is going to be protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and you also get a microSD card slot with which you expand your storage up to 256GB.

HTC U11 Life also features Edge Sense, which lets you squeeze the phone in order to perform specific actions. For any phone that is targeting the midrange and budget markets, having a 3.5mm audio jack should be a no-brainer.

The U11+ brings the Edge Sense feature that was launched with the U11. You can track that codename's source all the way back to April, pre-HTC U11, up to October when Ocean Master took its near-final form.

We'll test out battery life soon but for now HTC claims you'll get an extra two hours of video playback or web browsing compared to the HTC 10.
