Further, the HTC U11 has a 3000mAh battering powering the device, which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8. But first the raw specs.

As for the HTC U11 will come with a compact 5.5-inch QHD display with Corning Gorilla glass on top for added durability. The phone has 64GB of built-in storage, but this can be increased up to 2TB with a microSD card. The front camera sensor is 16MP one with BSI sensor, full HD video recording, and panoramic selfie. It supports 4K video capturing, slow motion video capturing and 360-degree surround sound recording using all the handset's four microphones. The U11 includes USonic earbuds, which now feature active noise cancellation and automatic personalized tuning. The HTC U11 will also be water and dust resistant, thanks to the IP67 certification.

As with the recently released U Ultra, HTC's U11 eschews the 3.5mm headphone jack for USB-C.

The HTC U11 represents a natural progression from the previous HTC U Ultra model, both in terms of looks and functionalities.

The most interesting part of the video is likely the "Edge Sense" features, which HTC is hoping will act as a selling point for this device. This feature lets you squeeze the phone in order to execute specific actions.

Another feature of the HTC U11 is its AI assistant support. This can be used to activate Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or HTC's own Sense Companiion, or other common features such as focus and take a picture or dictating a message. We took it for a quick spin to find out. HTC says that many layers of highly-refractive precious minerals have been deposited over the phone back cover for deep vivid colours that vary considerably with lighting and movement. Well in the USA the HTC U11 will be sold only by Sprint at first. The U11 will run Sprint customers $0 down and $29 per month for 24 months (or $696 retail).

The U11's exclusive carrier partner for the U.S. is Sprint, but it will also be available unlocked for $649.

For those not on Team Yellow, an unlocked version of the HTC U11 in Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, and Amazing Silver will be available for presale beginning today at htc.com and amazon.com, shipping in June.
