New HTC U11 Plus is a rejected Pixel 2 XL, report claims

New HTC U11 Plus is a rejected Pixel 2 XL, report claims

HTC has announced two new smartphones in addition to its flagship U11 smartphone.

As you must have known, the U11 Plus features a full-screen design with the squeezable frame feature that was first introduced on the U11. Launched at the price of 349USD (approximately Rs. 22,500), the HTC U11 Life features a smaller 5.2-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (FHD) n and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. I liked this phone a lot, and so did most other reviewers. Like most new flagships released this year, the panel covers the DCI-P3 color gamut and supports HDR playback.

Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC has launched its latest smartphones under the U series. Unfortunately, that one will only be sold in select markets across Europe and Asia.

A few rumors suggested the phone will arrive in early December, but that's all we have to go on. Due to our relationship with Google, there are obviously things that we know and don't know about them, but either way, we can't comment. But for the price, the U11 Life is very much a solid alternative to the Moto G5 Plus and the X4, just so long as you're on AT&T or T-Mobile. Design and display size The U11 life is not a carbon copy of the U11.

The HTC U11 Plus may not be as fantastic as the iPhone X, or the Galaxy Note 8, but it is, without a doubt, the best smartphone HTC could deliver. Like all 18:9 phones we've seen this year, the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back to trim the bezels down to a minimum. HTC promises that the North American version will be upgraded to Oreo before December.

The USDA press office did not respond Wednesday to repeated requests for comment about the nominee's agricultural experience. To that end, he tried several times to set up meetings between Trump campaign and Russian government officials.

HTC is using a 2:1 aspect ratio where the screen is taller and skinnier than older phones, making it easier to hold and use the big screen. Other features of the phone include Bluetooth 5.0, front-mounted fingerprint scanner, IP67 dust and water resistance and no 3.5mm audio jack, which should be one of the worst decisions regarding the U11 Life.

While the biggest difference between the U11 and the U11+ is the display, that isn't the only area that received improvements. Both the U11+ and U11 Life run on Android 8.0 Oreo with Android One.

The U11+ also packs a larger 3930mAh battery compared to the 3000mAh battery inside the U11. Whether or not it's enough to sway buyers from the Galaxy Note 8 though, we'll have to wait and see.

There are going to be three colour variants - Ceramic Black, Amazing Silver, and Translucent Black. But those touches turn a relatively cheap pair of buds and a relatively cheap phone into one of the coolest - and most accessible - gadgets I've used lately.
