  • HTC U11

The display is 5.5-inch QHD LCD.

The design also includes 3D glass on both front and back which has been created to make the device feel more secure and comfortable to hold.

As seen with the U Ultra, the HTC U11 comes with same glossy finish body and comes in Black, Red, Blue, White, and Silver color options.

The new HTC U11's specifications place the new device alongside the Samsung Galaxy 8 and iPhone 7 Plus - at the top end of the smartphone market. This means that HTC's 2017 flagship should survive being submerged under 1 meter of water for 30 minutes before it obtains any permanent damage.

The HTC U11's other big highlights are the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, its liquid surface design, and multiple AI assistants. Some other regions will get a 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant as well.

HTC has named Sprint the exclusive launch partner for the U11 in the US.

A 12 megapixel main camera is in tow and features HDR and quick autofocus.

HTC U 11 will pack a 12MP rear camera with 18MP front camera. The Acoustic focus is yet another new feature that HTC has introduced with the U11. It can record 4K videos and slow motion in 1080p at 120 fps. The much-anticipated HTC U11 comes with new, crazy-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, ultra-clear camera and new design.

In China, it will use Baidu's voice assistant, DuerOS. The device also has a choice of digital assistants: the HTC Sense Companion, as well as Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa in certain countries (the United States, the UK and Germany).

So there's the HTC U11. Amazon's Alexa will arrive to the handset later this July as part of a software update that will be available on the Play Store, accoridng to Android Central.

This new feature is called "Edge Sense", and it can be configured to do a variety of tasks with either short or long squeezes.

HTC also revealed users will be able to activate certain features of the U11 by simply squeezing the device. So now instead of tapping on the screen, you just need to squeeze the phone to execute specific actions. "Lightly squeeze, speak your message and send your texts on the go". This is thanks to the touch sensitive frame in which users can squeeze the phone gently to interact with it. Connectivity features include GPS/ A-GPS, GLONASS, USB 3.1 Type-C port, Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC. Well, the HTC U11 is the flagship in question and it has now been confirmed. This will allow customers to use their current 3.5mm headphones. The company also claimed that its latest flagship has received the highest DxOMark score for a smartphone camera to date.
