HTC started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the HTC U11 late last year. The company kicked things off by releasing said update for the unlocked handset first. Carrier-locked units normally get the update a couple of months after their unlocked counterparts. The wait is finally over for Sprint HTC U11 owners as the carrier is going to start rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo on its network […]
Last week it was reported that HTC could be announcing a new phone this week in the form of the HTC U11 EYEs. The report was also accompanied by several leaked renders showing off the phone in question, but now it looks like more leaks have since appeared as we get closer to the alleged launch of the phone.
So CES has pretty much come and gone, and while we did see some phones announced, like the Sony Xperia XA2, there weren’t many flagship handsets, at least none from the major players. However it could be because these companies are looking to host their own event, possibly to avoid getting swept up in the craziness that was CES.
With the price that premium flagships are commanding these days, obviously nobody wants to be stuck with a “slow” phone, and if you’re trying to decide between the HTC U11+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, then PhoneBuff might have a video worth checking out as they compare the speeds between both phones.
Last month HTC began rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for unlocked HTC U11 handsets, and the good news is that if you don’t own the HTC U11 but rather the HTC U11 Life, it looks like the update is now headed your way, assuming that you bought your handset from T-Mobile.
A couple of weeks ago, we reported that the HTC U11 in Taiwan had begun to receive its Android 8.0 Oreo update. Presumably this meant that the update is ready for the phone, and that the HTC U11 in other markets would eventually receive their update as well, and the good news is that you won’t have to wait much longer.
Given that the HTC U11 is HTC’s flagship phone for 2017, it didn’t really come as a surprise to learn that HTC would be updating the handset’s operating system to the latest version of Android. In fact a report from last month suggested that the update could be rolled out in November, and sure enough it has.
The HTC U11+ has been rumored about for a while now, with HTC posting various teasers of the upcoming handset on its Twitter page. However the good news is that all the anticipation and speculation can finally come to an end as HTC has officially taken the wraps off their latest flagship smartphone, the HTC U11+.
HTC is expected to unveil something new on the 2nd of November. We have been hearing rumors that it could be the HTC U11 Life, and there are some claims to suggest that it could be the HTC U11+, or maybe both. That being said, a recent tweet by leakster Evan Blass has revealed what appears to be the HTC U11+ in its rumored translucent finish.
Over the years we’ve seen handset makers come up with all kinds of innovative solutions and ideas for their phones in an attempt to stand out from the competition, and HTC is no exception. In fact if anything HTC seems to be one of the ones trying their hardest, like with the HTC U11 which launched with a squeezable frame.
Earlier today a tweet by famed leakster Evan Blass suggested that the upcoming HTC U11+ could be offered in a translucent finish. While Blass does have a very impressive track record, it’s hard to say what’s real until the phone is official, but it looks like the leakster’s tweet has since been proven true.
At one point in time, many companies who were making gadgets thought that offering customers the option of being able to see through their device and into its innards was something that they might like, and we suppose for a while there was a trend of seeing many people walking around with transparent Nintendo Game Boys.
Last month we heard the rumors that HTC has an Android One handset in the works in the form of the HTC U11 Life. While Android One devices aren’t new, most of them typically find their way to emerging markets where consumers are more price sensitive, but a recent report has suggested that the HTC U11 Life could be finding its way onto T-Mobile.
Earlier this year HTC launched the HTC U Ultra handset which was supposed to be the company’s flagship. However it wasn’t exactly the most impressive of phones, which led to HTC launching the HTC U11 several months that represented a more sincere effort. However despite its features, it seemed to lack in certain areas compared to other flagships of 2017.
Google released Android 8.0 Oreo a few months back but there aren’t a lot of devices out there right now that are running the latest iteration of Android. Google did mention some OEMs that would release the update in the coming months when it announced Oreo’s release, however, no information was provided about the actual release dates. That’s up to the OEMs and it seems that HTC will be rolling […]
There have been countless rumors about a new HTC smartphone over the past couple of weeks. Reports have suggested that the HTC U11 Plus is going to be unveiled by the company in November. HTC has now sent out invites for an event that’s scheduled on November 2nd. It’s possible that the much-rumored handset might be unveiled at the event.
Recently we have been hearing rumors that HTC could have an Android One handset in the works called the HTC U11 Life, which based on the name would be a variant of the HTC U11 flagship smartphone. Now in a recent tweet by Android developer LlabTooFeR, the alleged specs of the handset have been leaked.
In terms of design, the HTC U11 is certainly different from the competition. Instead of a more somber look, it has been given a rather bright and shiny finish, but if there was one thing we wish HTC could have done was reduce or eliminate the bezels like we’re seeing offered by the competition.
Just the other day Google officially announced Android 8.0 Oreo and that the update would soon be pushed out to devices like the Pixel and Nexus handsets, which we guess is to be expected for Google phones, but the question is what about other non-Google phones? When can we expect to see the update?
The HTC U11 is a beautiful handset in terms of design and it is also very unique in terms of features with a squeezable frame that lets users interact with the device. However if there was one shortcoming is that for some reason, the handset did not launch with support for video recording at 1080p 60fps.
