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

After several leaks and a few teasers, HTC is finally launching its new 2017 flagship smartphone - the HTC U 11.

With a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and new glass and metal design, U11 is the flawless blend of high-end power with a striking aesthetic. The Taiwanese is going to offer the HTC U 11 in two variants, one with 4G of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage (for US, UK markets) and another one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (for Asia).

HTC also revealed users will be able to activate certain features of the U11 by simply squeezing the device.

The phone also drops the 3.5mm headphone jack, leaving only USB-C for charging, data, and audio. It will be available in solar red, fantastic silver, brilliant black, ice white and sapphire blue color options.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Max will reportedly launch in India next month
Leaks hint that this time, the scanner might be center-back like on the Google Pixel, or perhaps embedded in the home button. Android 7.0 Nougat will be bringing in the special updates on improvements in performance and battery life as well.

Under the hood, U11 has the latest Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset.

HTC showed off its latest creation at a special media event streamed live over the web, in which it was keen to talk up the new input method, dubbed Edge Sense.

Under this all-glass shell is the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which is one of the fastest chips now on the market.

The HTC U11 comes with U-sonic headphones.

Xi Vows Belt, Road Support
It is looking to project its economic and political influence to almost 70 countries via the plan. However, China maintains the project is only for reaping economic benefits.

The phone will also come with Alexa integration as well as Google Assistant, although it's not clear why both are enabled on the phone, rather than just one. This is the highest ever score by a smartphone camera and it surpasses last year's 89 achieved by the Google Pixel.

Of course, the new HTC U11 will not be complete without new optics. By the looks of it, the Edge Sense technology on HTC U11 will work well with bumper cases or soft cases and gloves, but not with hard cases.

Setting aside this apparent time-saving gimmick, the HTC U11 is being launched in five colours and measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm, making it around 5mm shorter than the iPhone 7 Plus and 6mm shorter than the Samsung Galaxy 8 Plus. The phone also comes with IP67 certification water and dust proof. The other two smartphones that have been launched in the same family are the U Ultra and the U Play. We can only comment on the practicality once we try it out, however. On the front of the handset will be a 16MP selfie camera with UltraPixel technology.

The gadget also has a front camera of 16 MP and 12 " Ultrapolling" main camera with optical stabilization.

Just Kidding, Timeless Isn't Canceled After All
Kripke and co-creator Shawn Ryan both tweeted the un-cancellation update, along with their current information about the air date. Despite the show being axed by NBC , there is still a glimmer of hope for the fans to see another season of " Timeless ".

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.
