The HTC U11 made its press debut in early May, but the company has been releasing several teasers before the actual launch. There is no doubt that the star of the show was the “Edge Sense”, which enables users to squeeze the phone to enable different commands.
Based on this feature alone, consumers can already tell that the U11 is poised to be the most powerful model the company has ever released. It comes complete with a sleek design and a long list of impressive specs. Here, you’re about to take a closer look at the spec sheet. Keep reading to learn more.
HTC U11 Specs Sheet: What Can It Do?
The HTC U11 retails for a fair $649 with different monthly bundle subscriptions available through popular network providers. Though the company has already released two models this year, the HTC U Ultra, and the HTC U Play, it announced that the U11 will serve as the actual flagship model for 2017. It will serve as the direct successor to 2016’s HTC 10.
Speaking of the HTC U, the U11 is slightly smaller than the HTC U Ultra phablet. It comes with a 5.5 inch, 2K LCD screen protected by a slab of Gorilla Glass 5, a 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage (UFS 2.1 flash storage).
The HTC U11 has a 3,000mAh battery which is not removable, allowing users to take advantage of the brand new Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. Additionally, it is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor that powers this smartphone, with the Adreno 54 GPU in charge of graphics display and processing.

You can get the HTC U11 with the Android 7.1.1 Nougat already pre-installed. However, one slight flaw is that the phone does not sport headphone jacks. Although the U11 does not completely rely on wireless technology like Apple infamously did last year, it did this in favor of a USB-C which many reviewers have noted as a better option for playing high-resolution music.
At the back of the device is a 12-megapixel shooter with f/1.7 aperture, HDR Boost, BSI sensor, UltraPixel 3, 1.4um pixel size. Next to it are the dual-LED and dual-tone flash. In the front of the phone is the 16-megapixel snapper which is perfect for taking selfie shots.
The dimensions of the HTC U11 is measured at 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm and weighs 169 grams. It comes in a total of five color variants: Amazing Silver, Brilliant Black, Ice White, Sapphire Blue and Solar Red color.
