HTC U11 review and announced this November

HTC is holding an event on November 2nd, where it might announce two new variants of its U11 smartphone. The company sent out invitations for a big event in Taiwan to local media now, using the notice including a large "U" in the top, indicating that the HTC U line will be the focus there. Over the past several weeks, escapes have come out indicating there are two new phone models on the market: a mid sized device meant for Google's Android One app, and also a higher-end device intended to stand until the latest flagships.

It is not clear if both will start on the 2nd, but it seems safe to presume that at least one of them will show up. The very first of those is believed to be known as the U11 Life, that will be a trimmed down version of their first HTC U11. It is rumored to have a 5.2-inch display, a Snapdragon 630 chip, and 16 camera cameras to the front and rear. It's going apparently come in two versions, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage plus yet another with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Leaked images indicate it'll have a glistening blue back like the first. Since it's an Android One cellphone, it is possible to expect its price to come in about $400, like the Moto X4.


HTC's additional telephone is rumored to be the U11 Plus, that is much bigger, better version of this first U11. It is thought to have a nearly 6-inch screen, using a 2880 x 1440 resolution, along with an 18:9 facet radio, putting it dead even with the Pixel 2 XL. It will apparently have a Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12 megapixel rear camera, along with IP68 water resistance. It is likely to come in two versions, a model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage plus a version with 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of storage. Basically, it'd be a whole lot like the Pixel 2 XL, but it would be operating HTC Sense instead of Google's version of Android.

Although an event has only been declared for Taiwan so much, it appears probable that both of these phones will be headed to the US and Europe as well, where they will go head to head with some other very competitive devices. HTC might have some VR news to share in the event also, but there are not any specific rumors just yet.
