HTC U11 beats Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 with highest DxOMark score

Unveiled at a live-stream event in Dubai on Tuesday, The Taiwanese tech firm's new device comes with Edge Sense; its frame is pressure-sensitive, which allows a user to squeeze or press on the sides to perform certain tasks, such as unlocking the phone, taking pictures and other actions. While HTC users in some regions will be getting the new flagship device with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, in others, customers will receive 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory.

The device comes with 3D audio recording capability and features omnidirectional four microphones which help it to capture the audio from all directions while recording something.

A 12-megapixel UltraPixel 3 rear camera and a 16-megapixel front-facing camera might also include on the HTC U11. Like in the case of its predecessor, don't expect to find a 3.5mm headphone jack onboard, but HTC is also offering a Type-C-3.5mm adapter (with a built-in DAC). It will be available in solar red, incredible silver, brilliant black, ice white and sapphire blue color options.

The HTC U 11, the direct successor to 2016's HTC 10, comes with the "liquid design" of the U-Series that melds metal and glass to create a seamless design that's "both elegant to look at and to hold", says Mashable.

Talking about the specs of the smartphone, just like we had reported earlier today, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is the newest one from the company. As seen with the recent flagship HTC devices, the HTC U11 also misses the 3.5mm audio port. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for the confirmation over the above mentioned specifications. In addition to the Google Assistant that comes with Android, it also has HTC's Sense Companion and support for Amazon's Alexa assistant. It is armed with 3000 mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. HTC points out that Edge Sense is based on actual pressure applied to the phone, so it is not a capacitive touch feature, so wearing gloves or using it while wet should not present an issue.

Australia Receptive to China's Silk Road, but National Interest First
While the historic Silk Road connected Asia to Europe, he said that all countries would be welcomed to the new project. Pakistan and China signed six accords of cooperation in diverse fields.

When you are told that HTC is launching a mobile, it comepletely different than any other smartphone.

Since it launched past year, Alexa and the Echo speaker have become hugely popular and including it on the U11 is a smart move from HTC.

For the important specifics, the device sports a 5.5-inch screen with a Quad HD SuperLCD 5 display.

The HTC U11 promises to deliver on camera performance as well. Front camera features include live make-up, auto selfie, voice selfie, HDR Boost, and Selfie Panorama. Let us know in the comments. They are white, black, blue, red & silver.
