  • HTC will make a significant return to dual-camera phones in 2018

Add to that a Snapdragon 835 processor, louder speakers, IP68 water resistance and a 30% battery boost, and you've got a pretty formidable flagship that runs Android Oreo out of the box.

U11 Life will ship with Android 7.1 Nougat OS and "HTC Sense" in the USA and the latest Android 8.0 Oreo in other markets (with stock Android).

The HTC U11 shares nearly the same hardware as its predecessor, it is rocking the Snapdragon 835 processor paired up with 4 Gigabytes of RAM and 64 Gigabytes of internal storage, there is another model available with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.

Twitter Adopts 'Safeguards' After US President Trump's Account Shutdown
The company has said that an employee with the ability to suspend accounts deleted it from the site on his or her last day at company.

If we talk about the previous statements, the company had denied to launch a dual camera phones. For selfies, there's a 16 MP front-facing shooter. As with the U11, this smartphone is equipped with HTC Edge Sense technology, enabling users to squeeze the sides of the device to take photos, open an email, or automatically launch an app or game. On the front, we find the similar 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 that can shoot video in 108p. So we would see half a dozen phones from the Taiwanese company for the future.

HTC U11 has a very minimalistic Design with tiny bezels to make it feel small and compact in hands but it loses the tapered rounded edges of its predecessor making it feel a bit blocky and chunky. Though here, as with the U11, it can either trigger Google assistant or Alexa, rather than having to call them out by name.

Over all this is a decent upgrade to the U11, the phone will be available in ceramic black and a semi translucent option to show off the NFC bands at the back. That means HTC has been able to include a 6-inch screen without increasing the body size too much.

What should you get?

The battery has been upgraded from 3000 mAh to 3980 mAh and there are also two power saving modes available. The special feature of Edge Sense technology in of HTC U11 Life and HTC U11 Plus is taking the smartphone enthusiasts by storm.
