HTC U11 Plus review
The new HTC U11+ is a high-end Android 8.0 phone with top-of-the-line specs and outstanding design features. It also happens to be the company’s first phone with a taller, 18:9 display capable of displaying HDR10 content. Further perks include water resistance, a huge battery, and a pair of active noise-cancelling earphones in the box. All of that is topped by a fast, Snapdragon 835 chip and plenty of memory tucked inside a highly reflective body made of glass and metal. For those who find the idea neat, a variant of the phone with a translucent back plate is also available.HTC U11+ unboxing.
HTC U11+ Plus Display
the HTC U11+ has a taller display than the U11, thus filling more of its front side with screen space. The U11+ is only marginally taller as a result, but offers a screen that’s half an inch larger in diagonal. And if all this sound familiar to you, it’s because a number of other companies have already done the same. LG, Samsung, Google, and Apple all offer phones with screens “taller” than the traditional 16:9 ratio. The benefit? Well, having a huge display surrounded by minimal bezels not only makes a phone look pretty cool, but could also potentially allow more content to fit on the screen.
HTC U11+ Plus Battery
We’ve inevitably come to the point where raw hardware specs need to be highlighted. These include a Snapdragon 835 system chip and two memory configurations – 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 6GB/128GB of the stuff. Needless to say, we expect this phone to handle any task with ease. For those who need extra storage, a microSD card slot is available. Power is provided by a hefty 3,930mAh battery, which is a greater energy reserve than what most phones of this caliber have.HTC U11+ Plus review
HTC U11+ Plus Camera
the improvements might come as a result of software enhancements, as the 12MP single main camera – with OIS, F1.7 aperture, and 1.4um pixels – appears to be identical on a hardware level. At the front is a new 8MP selfie camera that can pull off some nifty HDR tricks without lag.HTC U11+ Plus specs
HTC U11+ Plus Price
The HTC U11+ is going to cost £699 in UK and 799 euro across Europe. Pre-orders begin on November 20 at HTC’s web site.
Apple iPhone X
The iPhone X could be an ultra premium iPhone model that is to be announced alongside the iPhone 8. The phone will employ wireless charging, a dual main camera, and an OLED screen occuppying nearly all of the front side. All this could be housed inside a water-resistant body made of glass on the front and back, with a stainless steel frame holding it together. Needless to say, the phone will feature next-generation processor and hardware, including an Apple-made A11 SoC and up to 256 gigs of storage. If this rumored iPhone 8 is released, don’t expect it to be cheap.
