HTC U11+

The HTC U11+ screams 2017 with its features as the device has ditched the traditional display for a new and improved bezel-less design. This device was also on the run to become the new Google Pixel 2 XL’s design. The HTC U11+ has a 6-inch Super LCD display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 2880 pixels of resolution. This display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. In terms of the hardware, the U11+ is powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6 or 4 GB of RAM. As for the GPU, HTC has included Adreno 540 in the device. The 64 GB storage variant has 4 GB of RAM while the 128 GB variant comes with 6 GB of RAM.

The HTC U11+ runs on the latest and greatest from Google – Android v8.0 Oreo. It supports memory expansion via a microSD card slot. The device has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner engraved in the shiny glass back. It has a relatively big 3,930 mAh battery which, according to the manufacturer, can provide up to 25 hours of talk time on 3G. This battery is paired with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

In terms of the camera, the HTC U11+ has a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS and dual tone LED flash. At the front sits an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. It is a bummer that HTC didn’t opt for dual camera lenses on the back. With the HTC U11+ comes a 30 percent louder bottom firing speaker which is also an upgrade from its predecessor – the HTC U11. This device is now IP68 certified meaning the device is more resistant to water and dust than the U11.
