HTC U11 vs HTC U Ultra: what are the differences?

So, earlier this year, HTC announced a high-end smartphone — the HTC U Ultra. It was a weird time to announce a top-tier handset — it was right after the holiday season, meaning people have already done their shopping for the months to come, and just before Qualcomm started mass-producing its latest-and-greatest chipset — the Snapdragon 835. So, the U Ultra is a 2017 smartphone with the top-shelf hardware of 2016, which is a bit of a weird call.

However, it was made clear that the U Ultra is not to be the company's flagship for this year, but a proof-of-concept device for the HTC enthusiasts and handset lovers worldwide. OK, OK, so what does the company actually have up its sleeve?

The HTC U11, which was announced today, of course! The handset looks unmistakably like a new member of the U family that came out maybe a bit too soon after its predecessor, the U Ultra. You might even be confused as to what the differences between the two phones are, so we are here to clear this up a bit. Let's dive in!

I bet PA got the review units by now. Can you predict the score?

WHY DOES PA INSTANTLY SAY THE SQUEEZE IS A GIMMICK? no wonder HTC can't get anywhere. They said the same thing about the Zoe camera which had features like motion photo and "portrait" mode (selective focus), but of course it's a gimmick when anyone but Apple tries it??? WTF FORCE TOUCH IS A F'N GIMMICK!

stop with the BS and let us know the how the new interaction could help us with our phones... you want HTC to be different but as soon as they pull the trigger you condemn them as if they are the most terrible company in the world...

PA stop with this pro-Apple all the time is obnoxious
