Quicklook: HTC U11

SHARE

Others have already released their 2017 flagship phone;  ready for HTC’s? For starters, the HTC U11 is packed with specs meant to impressthe Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, a QHD 5.5 LCD Screen, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 64 GB of internal storage, and 6GB or RAM. Beyond the top of the line specifications expected in every  flagship release, the HTC U11  sports a new design direction and a feature that some may consider as gimmicky.

In this release, HTC is bringing in a sculpted metal design, and  “squeezing” to the table. Yes, you heard that right. The new flagship features pressure sensitive sides which you squeeze in order to open different applications. Squeezes are, of course, configurable.

Also ensuring that you don’t run out of virtual assistants to talk to, HTC is bringing you three: Google Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa, and its very own HTC Companion. Three, since HTC believes that each have their own strengths (Alexa for Amazon Shopping, etc.). If you want a phone that has all the top specifications, as well as a very unique feature, then HTC’s phone will surely not disappoint.
