HTC U11+ brings slimmer bezels, Android Oreo, and a massive battery

Do you miss out on a lot? The U11 Plus comes with IP68 certification which is more reliable than the IP67 certification the U11 presents with. However, there is no information available about the pricing and availability of Android One variant. HTC will also offer the U11 life as an Android One device without the Sense skin outside the US.

Is the HTC U11 life one such phone? It comes with a decent build and hardware package, but only as good as the midrange market. And it's even lighter on the wallet - it only costs $350, while the U11 has the flagship-standard $650 price tag.

How To Get An iPhone X On Launch Day
Most Australians buyers are expected to buy the premium iPhone X on a contract, however, which could prove more challenging. The company gave investors a guidance $84 billion to $87 billion in revenue for the current quarter.

The HTC U11 Life will be available exclusively from T-Mobile starting tomorrow, November 3rd. HTC told me that on the U.S. version, an Oreo build is expected to be out by the end of the month, but I'd expect the skinned, USA version to regularly lag behind the Android One version.

In terms of the software, the smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with Sense on top. Interestingly, the Android One version of the Moto X4 is limited to the USA market while the rest of the world gets the one with Motorola's software.

Man accuses Kevin Spacey of making unwanted advances
A British barman claimed the actor flashed him as he worked in a hotel bar and then gave him his £5,000 watch to hush him up. U.S. drama This Is Us has removed a reference to Kevin Spacey amid a sex allegation against the House of Cards actor .

Inside the U11 Life is a 2600mAh battery, not too much smaller than the 3000mAh one found in the U11. And perhaps best of all, it comes with Android Oreo preinstalled, a result of HTC selling its device business to Google earlier this year. With the U11 Life missing out on a spot on Fi, both companies seem to be on the losing end. Under the hood, the HTC U11+ has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 2.4GHz octa-core processor, Adreno 540, 6GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage which can be further expanded up to 2TB via microSD card.

That's a whopping 16MP camera on the front. The front sees a similar 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture, but only records videos in 1080p. The U11 Life, on the other hand, is a mid-range smartphone that looks to offer a choice of stock Android experience or Sense UI, and cuts down on some of the premium specs that come with the U11. The camera also has an aperture of f/1.7.

I'm not known to shy away from talking my mind and rebelling if it is necessary, and taking charge of things that I believe are necessary".

Both new members of the family retain the U11's best features, including access to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant just by squeezing the phone, water and dust intrusion resistance, and HTC's USonic USB Type-C active noise-cancelling headphones. Rather than relying Bluetooth or a special dongle, however, HTC opted for USB-C headphones that plug into the phone's charging port. And yes, those edges are squeezable, just like the rest of the U11 family and Pixel 2 phones. We will keep you updated if that plan changes, but for now HTC's official stance is it won't be bringing the U11 Plus to those in the US.
