The HTC U11 was quite a smartphone, and it got raves of reviews from any tech enthusiast. However, it wasn’t up to trend with the bezel-free display, and that disappointed many.
HTC seems to have corrected that with the introduction of the HTC U11+ yesterday, in which the U11+ boast of an 18:9 6.0-inch Super LCD6 of 1440 x 2880px resolution screen, which is protected with Gorilla Glass 5, hence making the phone look really stunning as a bezel-free smartphone that’s really strong, being IP68-certified, which allows it to go under up to 1.5m of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
As you can see above, there’s no physical buttons on the front anymore as the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the rear. Here, an 8MP shooters with f/2.0 aperture is located under the thin forehead.
On the back there’s a 12MP UltraPixel 3 OIS camera with an f/1.7 aperture, 1.4µm pixels, UltraSpeed autofocus, and a dual-LED flash. The camera can record 1080p video capture at 120fps, and 4K recording with Hi-Res audio.
Powering this flashy device is a Snapdragon 835 chip, with a minimum of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space available, with bigger options also available depending on region.
A massive 3,930mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 grants juice to this impressive smartphone, with Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC Sense on top being the main OS for the phone.
According to Lowyat, the phone would be available in Malaysia this December, but pricing is still uncertain.
However, with the HTC U11 now priced around RM2,700 on Lazada Malaysia, it is expected the HTC U11+ would hit the RM3K barrier, especially since it’s sold at USD399 in the US.
