HTC announces the U11 smartphone


HTC today announced their newest flagship device, the HTC U11.  Building on the base of both the HTC 10 and the HTC U Ultra devices, the U11 at first blush appears to sport some of the best features of both.  If you are a Sprint (or potentially Verizon) user, this could be a phone that might interest you a great deal.  Click thru the jump for more details…

So, let’s start with the raw specs:

Processor (US model) Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Screen Size/Resolution 5.5″ Quad HD (2560×1440)
Base Storage 64GB
Memory 4GB RAM
SD card support Yes
Camera (rear) 12MP, f/1.7 w/1.4 micron pixels
Camera (front facing) 16MP f/2.0 aperture
Water and dust resistance yes, IP67
Battery size 3000mah
Wireless charging no

The list price right now is $649, and it should start shipping on or about June 9th.  You can buy the unlocked model that will work on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon in blue, black, or silver from Amazon or HTC directly.  There is a Sprint version that will be available in blue and black and they’ll presumably have some deal as the carrier exclusive in the U.S.

There’s also a rumor floating around that if you buy from, and you use the promo code “ONLY4U11” you can get $50 off your purchase of the U11.  At $599, for a flagship, this is a compelling device (at least on paper)

More coverage of this device to come as it gets launched.  We’ll have updates as they are available.  Cheers!
