The HTC U11+ and U11 EYEs can be ordered in the US via Amazon (without warranty)

In the last couple of months, HTC announced three new smartphones: HTC U11 Life, HTC U11+, and HTC U11 EYEs. Only the less advanced among them - U11 Life - is officially available in the US, but this doesn't mean that you can't buy the other two phones (if you really want them and you're ready to deal with some downsides).



 



Introduced as HTC's first handsets to sport displays with 18:9 aspect ratios, the U11+ and U11 EYEs are now both available to order on Amazon - but only via third-party sellers, at prices that are higher than you might expect. These are unlocked international variants of the two devices, so they don't come with US warranty, and they do not work on CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular. You will be able to use the phones on AT&T (LTE + 3G) and T-Mobile (LTE only).



 



At the moment, unofficial prices for the unlocked HTC U11+ start at $826, and, if you want the cool translucent black model (pictured above), you'll have to pay $859. The unlocked HTC U11 EYEs (pictured below) costs $614 regardless of color variant. 




 



Running Android 8 Oreo, the HTC U11+ and U11 EYEs have similar batteries (3930 mAh) and water-resistant designs, but plenty of their specs are different. The U11+ is a high-end phone with features like a 6-inch, 1440 x 2880 pixels screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, and 6 GB of RAM. The U11 EYEs is a mid-range device offering a dual front-facing camera, a 6-inch, 1080 x 2160 pixels screen, a Snapdragon 652 CPU, and 4 GB of RAM.




Do you think you'll want to buy any of HTC's new near-bezel-less phones anytime soon?

You wouldn't do it but those who do aren't morons, they just have more money perhaps and want to be different .

we'll see... the U11 is already such a great mobile can't really see upgrading to the U11+ right now anyway...the U12 won't be too far away and will be equipped with SD 845 so it'll be even more powerful than the U11+

Why so much fuss about getting it cheaper from unknown sources, when you can get it locked and then use an online service to unlock it post-purchase?
