HTC U11 Plus and U11 Life show up in a hands-on video
Following various leaks presenting renders and less-flattering photos of the unannounced HTC U11 Plus (or U11+), we can now see the smartphone in a hands-on video. Inadvertently published by Swiss publication Blick, said video can be watched at the second source link below (unfortunately, we can't embed it in this article).
Thanks to this leaked video, we can take a pretty good look at the HTC U11 Plus and its 6-inch, 1440 x 2880 pixels display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The new phone has thin bezels around its screen, but can't really stand next to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG V30, or Apple iPhone X, all of which offer superior screen-to-body aspect ratios.
The HTC U11 Plus features a fingerprint scanner on the back, alongside a single main camera. Speaking of the back, this is slightly transparent, allowing us to see some of the phone's innards - this must be the rumored translucent color version of the handset.
Like its predecessor (U11), the HTC U11 Plus comes with Edge Sense, letting users squeeze its frames in order to perform various tasks. The hands-on video shows that HTC enhanced this feature, now providing more customization options.
Besides the high-end U11 Plus, the leaked video also showcases
the mid-range HTC U11 Life - more exactly, its Android One version, which
should have cleaner software compared to the model expected to be released in
We don't know if this hands-on video will be online for much longer, so we've snapped some screenshots for you, showing both of HTC's upcoming phones:
The HTC U11 Plus and U11 Life will likely be announced later this week, on November 2. Official details about their prices and release dates should be unveiled then - stay tuned!
