The HTC U11 reinvents HTC's design language with a bold new glass-backed chassis in a range of shimmering colors. And it's the first smartphone to include Edge Sense, a new shortcut function that lets you squeeze the sides of the phone to jump quickly into the camera, take a photo, or launch your favorite personal assistant. Aside from gimmicky new features, the U11 is a solid flagship phone with top-tier specs — Snapdragon 835, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage — and one of the best cameras we've seen on any phone. HTC's new Ultrapixel shooter features always-on "HDR Boost" post-processing, similar to the Google Pixel's HDR+ trickery.
The HTC U11+ takes the core specs of the U11, and expands its display to a 6-inch, 18:9 panel, boost the battery to a whopping 3,930mAh, and packages that all together with a flatter, more grown-up design, with software based on Android 8.0 Oreo. What's more, in the UK you'll get 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as standard, alongside dual SIM functionality. While the U11+ won't be coming to the United States, it's launching in Europe and Asia, with price tags that compare favorably to other high-end Android "phablets" like the Google Pixel 2 XL. Along with a bigger battery, a larger display and three striking color options, the U11+ expands on the U11's Edge Sense functionality with new squeeze-enabled features, and swaps on the selfie camera for a new low-light-friendly 8MP shooter.
