HTC U11+, U11 Life smartphones with Edge Sense launched

HTC U11 Life

Early 2017's HTC U11 is an impressive phone, receiving 4.5 stars in our review, but the company seems to be aiming for that final half a star with its newly launched bigger and better version. HTC has finally joined the "bezel-less" club with its latest flagship, so the bezels are much slimmer than any previous flagship smartphone from the company. One thing that changed is the software version.

The U11 Plus isn't alone either, as it launched alongside the HTC U11 Life, but we've put together a separate guide where you can learn everything about that phone.

- What will it cost? The 6-inch display of the Plus is a lot larger than the original U11's, however, the dimensions of the handset remain reasonable.

The HTC U+ Plus will be available to buy unlocked for £699 (Rs 59800 approx.) from November 20th in the United Kingdom and Euro 799 in Europe.

This means that instead of coming with the HTC Sense interface, it's pure stock Android.

Pre-orders kick off on 20th November, with a SIM-free price tag of £699. Let us know in your comments below.

We'd also understand no waterproofing at this price point but the U11 Life is IP67 like its bigger brother. As a result, the phone has emerged as a bit boxy even though it manages to retain its overall visual appeal.

The U11 Plus is slightly taller and thicker than the U11 with measurements of 158.5mm x 74.9mm x 8.5mm and is a tiny bit heavier at 188g (versus 169g).

The front panel moved from 16:9 to the elongated 18:9 (2:1) aspect ratio of most other flagship phones - at 2880×1440 resolution - but it retained the standard liquid-crystal (LCD) display technology, as opposed to the organic light-emitting (OLED) panels Google, Samsung, and Apple are using. In terms of optics, the phone packs a 12 MP UltraPixel 3 OIS f/1.7 aperture camera on the back and an 8 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture on the front just like the HTC U11. When compared side-by-side with a similarly priced phone like the $400 Moto X4, as expected, both phones performed admirably in the daytime. The smartphone is also capable of recording 4K videos. The Pixel 2 XL's 3,520mAh battery, but a little smaller than the whopping 3,930mAh cell sitting within the U11 Plus. The battery is rated at 3,930mAh and supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0. The smartphone will also come with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. A lesser variant of 3GB and 32GB of storage will be available in North America.

Specs include a Snapdragon 835 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (Europe only), with a second model knocking that down to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The internal storage is expandable to up to 2TB using a microSD card.

Piggy-backing from the HTC U11 flagship, the mid-range U11 Life includes several HTC specific features, including Edge Sense.
