HTC U11 Smartphone out for Rs. 51,990!!

HTC U11 is a flagship smartphone with an Edge sense function where you squeeze the phone enough for its sensors to activate a feature or an app that you have set on the phone.

The first impression about the phone is the over-glossy surface at its back. Spec wise, it is a 5.5-inch phone with 1440p resolution and using Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU clocked at 2.45 GHz. It uses a 6 GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with microSD support up to 2 TB. The rear camera is a 12 MP shooter with f/1.7 aperture lens and dual LED flash capable of recording 4K video. The front camera is a 16 MP camera with BSI sensor and records full-HD. It’s packed with a 3,000 mAh battery with a promise of up to 24.5 hours of talk time and 14 days of standby time. It has a dual-band WiFi AC with Bluetooth 4.2 support, Quick Charge 3.0 support, NFC support and 4G VoLTE support. This phone has an IP67 certification so it provides a good amount of protection from dust and water.

The upsetting part of the device is the absence of 3.5mm audio jack so the only connectivity is the Type-C connector.

While HTC has a 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter available for purchase conveniently, it’s silly that manufacturers have ventured towards this direction. While it may have served its purpose to keep the form factor slim, it would not be practical for many users. People don’t pay more to get less. They pay more to get more. In a market where every handset manufacturer has a fully loaded flagship, HTC should have less novelty feature such as pressure sensors and more practical for a user.
