After weeks of rumors and leaks, HTC has finally introduced its new flagship smartphone, the HTC U11, and all the belonging info along with it. The HTC U11 is a true powerhouse, we’ve already talked about the phone in our official announcement, and you can also read more about its specifications by clicking here. That being said, the company also shared some availability info for this smartphone, not a lot though, but if you’d like to know more, read on.
HTC had announced that the HTC U11's full distribution will kick off in early June, though no specific date was given by the company during the press conference, the company did mention that the phone will land in key markets next week, though. HTC also said that they will release far more info next week, as the company intends to share region-specific availability info next week. HTC did mention during the press conference that Alexa will be coming to the HTC U11 as well, and as part of that, the company indirectly confirmed that the phone will become available in both Europe and the US, though that was to be expected. We still do not have any spec info when it comes to the HTC U11, however, we'll have to wait for next week in order to know more, but this phone will not be cheap, that much is certain. The HTC 10 and HTC U Ultra were quite expensive when they launched, they came with true flagship price points, and the same will probably happen with the HTC U11.
The HTC U11 is quite a powerful smartphone, as already mentioned, this handset is made out of metal and glass, and it comes with some unique features as well. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, while it packs in a 3,000mAh battery on the inside. The device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. Now, the phone boasts a 12-megapixel shooter on its back, while you’re getting a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. The device will become available in a range of color options, and Android 7.1 Nougat is available here out of the box. Now, as far as its special features go, the company introduced something called the ‘Edge Sense’ technology, which essentially lets you squeeze the phone’s frame in order to perform certain actions. Think of it as a force touch functionality for the device’s sides, as they won’t reach to regular touches, but they will to hard presses.
