After launching its HTC U11, aka the ‘squeezable’ telephone, in Taiwan last month, HTC has now launched it in India. While the world over, HTC has delivered two memory/storage editions, i.E 4GB RAM/64GB garage, and 6GB RAM/128GB storage, it has delivered best the latter variation to India. The telephone has been priced at Rs. Fifty-one,990 will be had via Amazon India and via offline channels beginning from the final week of this month, in Amazing Silver and Brilliant Black color options.

The HTC U11’s particular promoting point is its Edge Sense function. However, it also has many different things going for it in terms of the spec-sheet – it uses Qualcomm’s present-day Snapdragon 835 processor and has an impressive 6GB of RAM. We were given our arms on the device at HTC’s India launch event, and here are our first impressions.

The first element you will note about the HTC U11 whilst you pick it up is it’s glossy again. Just like the HTC U Ultra that came out in advance this 12 months, the U11 also has a glittery glass lower back. It appears notable, especially due to the colorful colors that HTC has chosen, but the glass is slippery and a fingerprint magnet. The HTC U11 measures 153.9×75.9×7.9mm. It isn’t very tough to hold with one hand; however, people with smaller hands may have issues dealing with this telephone. It’s rated IP67 for water and dirt resistance.

Coming to the ‘squeezable’ element, HTC has introduced a function known as Edge Sense with the U11. This lets users release apps, switch on the flashlight, or maybe take screenshots by truly squeezing the tool’s sides. Pressure sensors permit it to understand the intensity and duration of squeezes. Users can assign distinct functions based totally on the sample; for example, you could use a mild press to launch HTC’s virtual assistant and an extended squeeze for taking screenshots.

HTC has promised that it will include greater functionality in the function in the coming months. In our limited time with the smartphone, we found that the Edge Sense feature useful but didn’t experience that it provides the remarkable cost to the telephone. However, those are our first impressions, and you may wait till we behavior a complete review for our final opinion on the new characteristic.

Moving directly to the show at the HTC U11, the smartphone packs a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440×2560 pixels) Super LCD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass five. In our time with the phone, we discovered the display excellent of the telephone to be magnificent. As this telephone is missing a three.5mm headphone jack, HTC bundles its USonic earphones with the HTC U11, as well as a USB Type-C adapter. We determined the excellent audio presented through those earphones to be exceptional.

The HTC U11 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat with the HTC Sense pores and skin on top and helps Nano-SIMs. Thanks to its effective 2.45GHz quad-center Snapdragon 835 SoC and 6GB of RAM, the telephone failed even to appear to hiccup even a little at the same time as launching apps in our quick time with it. As we stated in advance, those are our first impressions, and our full assessment will include an in-depth analysis of the HTC U11’s performance.
