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.
Recently there were reports to suggest that the HTC U11 could be getting an update to its firmware that would give the phone Bluetooth 5.0 capabilities. It turns out the rumors were true after all because HTC has since confirmed this themselves in a post on their website, where they promised that Bluetooth 5.0 functionality would be coming to the phone.
It has not been too long ago since HTC launched their flagship HTC U11 handset. This is the latest smartphone from the company that feels more like a 2017 flagship phone compared to the HTC U Ultra whose specs did leave us wanting. Now it seems that HTC has another phone in the works which is rumored to be the HTC U11 Life.
We’re not sure why in today’s day and age that the HTC U11 was launched with a camera that was only capable of capturing Full HD 1080p footage at 30fps. Considering that many phones these days offer at least 60fps (and with the iPhone 8 rumored to allow 4K @ 60fps), it does seem strange.
HTC’s new flagship smartphone, the squeezable U11, has been released to good reviews and the company continues to enable new features for the handset to make it stand out from the crowd. HTC has confirmed today that it’s going to roll out support for 60 frames-per-second video recording to the HTC U11 in the near future.
At the moment the only phones that support the new Bluetooth 5.0 standard are the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. There were rumors that the HTC U11 could also feature the standard, but that clearly wasn’t the case. Instead the phone was launched with Bluetooth 4.2, which while perfectly fine, was a bit disappointing for many.
It hasn’t been a long time since HTC released its new flagship smartphone, the HTC U11. When this handset was first launched, the only variant that the company was offering featured 64GB of storage. That’s no longer the case. HTC has now started selling another varaint of the HTC U11 which features 128GB of onboard storage.
If you want to have multiple options for a digital personal assistant then purchase the HTC U11. When this handset was launched, the company said that customers will be able to choose from three assistants namely: Google Assistant, HTC Companion, and Alexa by Amazon. Alexa wasn’t available at launch but Edge Sense has now been updated to bring Alexa to the HTC U11.
If you own either the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the HTC U11 and you bought the phone from Sprint, you might be interested to learn that the latest firmware update issued by the carrier is something you’ll want to check out. This is because according to PCMag and Sprint, the firmware update appears to boost the download speeds of either handset.
