New HTC U11: double front camera, water resistance and more


HTC is a brand that is trying to resurface little by little since its free fall in 2015, and today we see one of the new bets it makes for the high-end range, the HTC U11 Eyes. We tell you all your information as its characteristics, outstanding functions, price and official departure date.

HTC ended last year in a big way, with the HTC U11 + on the market, which may be the best terminal of the Taiwanese firm and the one that can put it back into orbit, at the height of the most expensive terminals in the market. This mobile had a new design, in which, we could see for the first time the entire screen format, and it seems that this format will be implemented also in the mid-range of the firm.

We will see how HTC evolves in 2018, but it looks like it will be a competing brand, maybe not as important as it was before 2014, but a brand that has recommended terminals in its catalog, so Let’s see what he has prepared for us with this new mid-range terminal.

Specifications of the HTC U11 Eyes

This terminal has a design quite similar to U11+, but with more trimmed specifications. We have a 6-inch screen with FullHD + resolution and an 18: 9 screen format. The technology that HTC has chosen for the panel of this terminal has been SuperLCD and also has Gorilla Glass 3 to protect the glass – a certification that perhaps remains somewhat short with respect to the competition.

In the hardware section, we see that it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, which is accompanied by an Adreno 510 GPU. The speed of the terminal will also be in charge of the 4 GB of RAM that it incorporates inside, in addition to the 64 Storage Gb that has its unique version.

Continuing with the photographic section, we see that it has a rear camera with Ultrapixel technology of 12 megapixels, with an aperture f / 1.7, but without the possibility of doing portrait mode by not having a double camera or the necessary software. On the other hand, we see two cameras in the front, two of 5 megapixels, with the possibility of making the bokeh effect that is so fashionable.

Other details to note is that it comes standard with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, something strange to see that other terminals in its range have Android Oreo. Its battery is 3930 mAh and has fast charging Qualcomm. A terminal that meets specifications in specifications, but we must see how are your daily use, your price, and your arrival date.

HTC U11 Eyes, price and availability

This new HTC mobile will be available throughout this week in three colors: black, blue and red, and although we do not know its final price, we can see that it would be close to 420 euros, which is the price it has a change. A very powerful mid-range terminal that is positioned as the main competitor of the Galaxy A8, so we’ll see if it really becomes a good option.
