The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC announced the new HTC U11 smartphone a couple of weeks back in Taiwan. However, today, the company has officially launched it here in India. The smartphone is priced at 51,990 INR and it will be on Amazon India as well as offline retail stores starting last week of June 2017. Well, at this price it certainly costs less than the Galaxy S8 and is on par with LG G6, but let’s see what do you get for the price.
Talking about the specs of this smartphone, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is the latest flagship chipset from Qualcomm. This is coupled with 6GB of RAM which is highest that we have seen in any HTC smartphone till now. There is also 128GB of internal storage which you can further expand via a microSD card upto 2TB for adding more media files, etc. All this raw power should allow for a great user experience. There is also a 5.5-inch Quad HD display on the front which has a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. This is a Super LCD display which is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top.
In terms of the camera, we are looking at a 12-megapixel rear camera. This is an ultra-pixel camera which has larger pixel size and an aperture size of f/1.7. It also has Dual LED flash and can record videos upto 4k resolution. On the front, we have a 16MP sensor for taking selfies. The whole package is kept powered by a 3,000 mAh battery which should be good enough to keep it powered for an entire day. It is running on Android 7.1 Nougat based HTC’s custom skin on top.
The USP of the phone is, however, the design and the “Squeeze” technology. It has a glass body which is extremely shiny and looks almost like a mirror. The Squeeze technology allows you to squeeze the sides of the phone and launch apps, games, etc. It is definitely a unique approach to edge sense. Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. Would you be interested in buying this smartphone at this price?
