HTC U11 and U11 Plus - What's New

HTC's U11+ is a squeezable big-screen wonder

On the negative side of things, it does not offer support for the Moto Mods modular accessories.

A report from The Verge, citing an unnamed "source familiar with HTC", claims the HTC U11 Plus is, in fact, the "Muskie"; it's alleged that HTC rescued the device from development purgatory after Google changed its plans.

The U11 Plus is powered by the top of the range Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset that we saw included in the U11 and that has done well in a lot of top-end phones already this year.

The new HTC U11 Life, however, features a back panel made of acrylic glass that's created to be highly reflective and features a plastic frame. On the front, we find the similar 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 that can shoot video in 108p. It also ships out with the Moto Key - an option which allows users to access password-protected websites with a touch of a finger.

Edge Sense, the squeeze-to-use tech that's becoming all the rage in the smartphone world, is still an enviable feature.

A release date for Australia is now unclear, but we've asked HTC and hope to hear more soon. This gives you a chance to buy an HTC phone without any of the company's own Android tweaks preinstalled.

What actually happened was the "Muskie" got axed, the LG "Taimen" became the Pixel XL 2 which eventually launched, alongside HTC's "Walleye" Pixel 2.

It will available in Translucent Black, Ceramic Black, and Amazing Silver beginning mid-December in select markets across the Middle East including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. If you're not, the purchase will take you back with $399. Of, and it's worth noting that, as with the standard U11, the headphone jack is gone here, marking one of the first time a budget handset has dropped the port. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation and you can even tune them according to your hearing profile to get the best audio experience out of them. The special feature of Edge Sense technology in of HTC U11 Life and HTC U11 Plus is taking the smartphone enthusiasts by storm.

The battery has been upgraded from 3000 mAh to 3980 mAh and there are also two power saving modes available.
