Where to Buy the HTC U11?

Last night, HTC announced their new high-end phone for 2017, the U11. It’s already up for pre-order, if you can believe it, and ships in just a few short weeks on June 9.

For unlocked models that are pretty reasonably priced at $649, you can buy the U11 from Amazon and HTC.com in blue, black, or silver (which is light blue). The unlocked version works on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, so we’re talking about a fully unlocked phone with almost universal compatibility here.  (more…)

Video: First Look at the HTC U11!

Now that the HTC U11 is no longer a badly-kept secret, you probably want to know if this is a phone you should consider. After all, it sure is pretty, but does it include the types of features you want in a 2017, $700 phone? We took it for a quick spin to find out.

What I can tell you after spending some time with the HTC U11 is that it feels very much like a slimmer, more compact U Ultra. That means the design is on-point. In fact, this is one of the sexier phones I think you’ll hold, as long as you don’t look at its front bezels.  (more…)

HTC U11 is Official and Squeezable, Coming to the US in June

The HTC U11 has been a pretty poorly kept secret, but it is now official and we can finally share the dirty details. As expected, the device is an improved U Ultra with similar design, a bump in specs, and a new Edge Sense feature that allows you to squeeze the sides of the phone to get things done. This is probably the phone HTC should have launched months ago instead of the Ultra, if I’m being honest.

In terms of specs, the HTC U11 features a Snapdragon 835, 5.5-inch QHD LCD display, 12MP f/1.7 camera, 64GB storage with SD slot, 4GB RAM, fingerprint reader, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat under HTC Sense. You can find the full specs lists here(more…)

WATCH: HTC’s “Squeeze for the #BrilliantU” Event!

I know the timing here is kind of random, but in case you forgot, HTC is hosting a press event tonight in Taiwan. We are fully expecting them to announce the HTC U11, the follow-up to last year’s HTC 10 and this year’s U Ultra. Details for this device have leaked left and right for a good month or so now, but there could always be surprises in store.

Either way, if you are interested in HTC’s offerings, tune in at 11PM Pacific (2AM Eastern) for the happenings. We’ll be around for coverage.
