HTC U11+ Comes With Android 8 Oreo, 6GB RAM: Specs, Price

Shortly after HTC launched their 2017 flagship device known as HTC U11, other competitors launched phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5, iPhone 8, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 to mention but a few. This instantly displaced the Huawei device and many people quickly forgot it existed.

Yet the smartphone OEM refused to relent and now, they are back with the real flagship device coming as HTC U11+. The U11+ comes with premium and high-end features that pins it as one of the best flagship phones of 2017. Here, we will take a look at the features, specifications and price of this latest Huawei U11 phone.

In any case, HTC didn't want to be left out with its typical 16:9 display, so the HTC U11+ bumps up to an 18:9 aspect ratio Bezel-less with its 6 inches Quad HD LCD panel. It has the wider DCI-P3 colour gamut and will gain HDR10 support later this year, although opting for LCD rather than OLED means it might fall a step behind some of the competition. Still, it looks pretty fine at first glance.

By and large, the HTC U11+ has the same internals as the original model, packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with either 4GB or 6GB RAM, depending on model, and either 64GB or 128GB storage based on your choice.

In other words, it's keeping pace with the Android competition, as the new Pixel 2 XL has the very same Snapdragon 835 and 4GB combo in tow. It even has Android 8.0 Oreo, which likewise puts it on par with the new Pixels.

You'll get a 12-megapixel single sensor at a wide f/1.7 aperture and HDR boost, along with optical image stabilisation. Back with the U11, we praised the photos' immense detail, rich colours, and and generally exceptional results.

On the front, it's a slightly different story: the new 8MP camera brings in the HDR boost and noise reduction from the back sensor, which should punch up your selfies.
