HTC will launch dual rear camera smartphone in 2018

HTC's U11+ is a squeezable big-screen wonder HTC U11 and U11 Plus – What's New

Dust-resistant and waterproof up to depths of one metre, the HTC U11+ runs Android 8.0 Oreo and its HTC Sense software suite. On the negative side of things, it does not offer support for the Moto Mods modular accessories.

The HTC U11 and U11 Plus are quite similar when it comes to specs. Like most of its rival Android phones, the U11+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and it will be available in a 128GB version, offering up to 2TB with a microSD card. As for the camera module, both the front and back shooters have 16MP lens with f/2.0 aperture, but no optical stabilization feature is included.

While the newer HTC smartphones are not the worst, we won't say that it is the best around but the HTC U11 Plus will show the consumers that HTC is still in the game. However, in the U.S., the company will be shipping this devices with its Sense UI. Users can now enjoy the top-notch features of HTC U11, albeit in a smaller package, for only $350.

A release date for Australia is now unclear, but we've asked HTC and hope to hear more soon.

Apart from the price and camera vague prediction, we can also state that the hardware configuration of the devices is going to be like a Christmas gift for fans in the first quarter of 2018. That means HTC has been able to include a 6-inch screen without increasing the body size too much.

Over all this is a decent upgrade to the U11, the phone will be available in ceramic black and a semi translucent option to show off the NFC bands at the back. If you're not, the purchase will take you back with $399. The report had also pointed out that this time around the device was associated with HTC branding. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation and you can even tune them according to your hearing profile to get the best audio experience out of them. We will keep you updated if that plan changes, but for now HTC's official stance is it won't be bringing the U11 Plus to those in the US. It offers a almost edge-to-edge display, a massive (especially for HTC) 4000mAh battery, and a cool looking model with a translucent case so that you can see some of the components inside the phone.
