HTC announces U11 Life and U11 Plus smartphones

HTC  logoHTC added two new members to the U11 family, the HTC U11 Life, the U11 and the U11 Plus.

After the launch of the flagship HTC U11 earlier this year, the new HTC U11 Life" model is a nore affordable "imitation" of the U11, available for $349.

Compared to the flagship U11, the U11 Life has a similar design with the same ultra-shiny body, the same massive bezels-which and new features like IP67 dust and water resistance, always-on voice commands, and HTC's squeezable sides.

The glass back has been replaced with a plastic coated to look just like the flagship U11. The phone HTC U11 Life weighs just 142g.

Under the hood you get a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 630 and 3GB of RAM. The 5.2-inch, 1080p LCD is a smaller than the 5.5-inch display fitted to the U11, resulting in a slightly smaller phone. You get 32GB of storage, 16MP rear and front cameras, a 2600mAh battery, a MicroSD slot, and a USB 2.0 Type C port.

Also like a lot of flagships, there's no headphone jack.

Like the HTC U11, the U11 Life is equipped with HTC's "Edge Sense" feature. This is a set of pressure sensors on the left and right sides of the phone, and a squeeze can launch an action. You can configure them to launch the Google Assistant, just like the Pixel 2, or switch it to launching Amazon Alexa, the camera app, the flashlight, or any other app on the phone.

In the US, the HTC U11 Life runs Android 7.1 with HTC's Sense skin. The international version is an Android One phone, which means it ships with stock Android, and it's shipping with a newer version of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Starting today, you can buy the phone unlocked on HTC.com, which only has AT&T and T-Mobile support (CDMA, which is required for Verizon and Sprint, is not included). You can also buy the phone on contract though T-Mobile, starting on November 3rd.

HTC U11+

The HTC U11+ has a large six inch 18:9 LCD display, 3930 mAh battery, IP68 dust and water resistance, 30 percent more volume BoomSound, and more.

HTC is also offering a Translucent Black model where you can see the internals of the device.

There is no headphone jack, but the front BoomSound stereo speakers are improved while Qualcomm aptX HD, LDAC 24-bit hi-res audio is provided via Bluetooth 5.0.

The U11 Plus will be available to buy unlocked, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, for £699 from November 20th in the UK. In Europe, the device will cost €799, however HTC has yet to announce the complete set of markets it will be available.
