It's official: HTC U11 Plus will be unveiled on November 2

HTC has just confirmed it will hold a launch event in early November. Last week, Chinese media reported HTC had started to send invitations to such an event, but the Taiwanese company did not confirm anything until today.

Fast forward one week and HTC has just tweeted a “Save the Date” image confirming a launch event for November 2. Although the company doesn't say what device will introduce early next month, it's safe to assume we'll be seeing the HTC U11 Plus.

In fact, we've already seen the smartphone, although not through official means. We've also learned quite a bit about the flagship's specs such as the fact that it will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal memory.

From behind, the HTC U11 Plus will look very much the same as the U11, but the phone will feature much thinner bezels. We're also expecting a 6-inch display with Quad HD display, a generous 4,000 mAh battery, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The U11 Plus won't include a dual-camera setup apparently, and the same goes for the 3.5mm audio jack which was replaced with a USB Type-C port.

So, HTC U11 and U11 Plus are basically the same phone with few differences like display, battery, and design. Hopefully, HTC will load Android 8.0 Oreo on the U11 Plus to set it apart from its other flagship.

Ehhh, nothing exciting to compete against Note 8, iPhone 10, Google Pixel XL 2

HTC phones are much cheaper in my country than Samsung, Apple or Google. For example, U11 costs only $700 here(128GB, 6GB RAM). While Note 8(64GB, 6GB RAM) costs $1100, pixel XL2(64GB,.4GB RAM) costs $1200 and iPhone X(64GB, 3GB RAM) costs $1400. The only reason I didn't buy the U11 was due to the Anaemic battery size of 3000 mAh. With 4000 mAh on this beast and some decent pricing like the U11, this can be a real beast.

What country are you in?

How does that matter. I can assure you the figures are correct, at least within the margin of error. The pricing is really weird here though. After a certain time, pricing gets on par with US pricing. iPhone 7 is within $600 here and s8 is $650

The u11 only costs $572(128gb 6gb ram)where I buy from whilst note 8 64gb $920, s8 64gb $600. So yes htc phones are quite cheaper than the other brands. And the htc u ultra is now only $339 killer deal

HTC U Ultra is such a terrible crap that believe me - even if this phone is given me for free I still wouldn't use it...

TBH battery life on my U11 is great despite that 3K mAh battery. With 4K it will be insanely good.

Yeah, even I heard it's really good, like most SD835 phones. The problem is, batteries degrade with time and after about 1.5 years of use, only 70-80% of battery capacity remains, which is what concerns me. My Oneplus 3 had excellent battery when it came out. I used to get 6hours of screen-on-time and 2 full days of use. After about 1.5 years, I can still get a full day of use out of it, with 4.5-5 hours of SoT with similar use and a better version of android(Oreo vs Marshmallow). I would like to use a phone for 2-3 years TBH and the batteries are making it near impossible to do so. My OP3 is barely acceptable now, and any degradation further would push it over the edge, which is why I prefer bigger batteries.

If the leaked images are anything to go by, this is one solid looking phone. Perfect top/bottom bezels IMO.

Looks great but I’ll wait for the next htc flagship.

No headphone jack again. Feck off HTC.

It doesn't have a 3.5" floppy disk drive either. How silly of them.

Again - no 3.5 mm jack and strange colors. HTC is not going to improve. I don't really understand why HTC waisting money on making phones nobody buys. It's absolutely obvious that U11 Plus will be the same kind of flop U Ultra, U Play and U 11 are.

8. Beijendorf unregistered

Then don't buy it, or any other of the flagships that won't include that port. It's being phased out though, so you'll run out of options soon. Stop crying about it on every single article. Also, strange colours? HTC got a lot of positive attention from their pearlescent colours. It makes their phones stick out from the slabs of similarly-coloured similarly-shaped devices.

HTC got a positive attention.. ? May be, but what is even much more noticeable - negative sales which are indicators of everything about this company. And trust me - HTC itself will fade out much sooner that 3.5 mm jack...

The colours are what makes the u11 so unique. At least htc tries do differentiate from the ocean of similar looking phones. Htc is one of the most innovative company especially when it comes to design and the u11 plus looks the most different and most beautiful 18:9 phone to date. So take your whining some where else. I'm just hoping htc survives, even with their "extremely tiny" budget they still try to innovate unlike huge useless companies that just copy

Unique colours for whom ? For retards or schoolboys? And please tell me what so innovative HTC made? Removed 3.5 mm jack? Discovered weird shiny colors no one with good taste will take? I need facts but not a bulls**t affirmations. Also - where do you know from how U11 Plus looks like? Aren't you one of those die hard fans company asked for support in online discussions and forums? And just to let you know - I'm not HTC hater, in fact I very much like HTC 10, but the whole U series is just a disaster company management needs to be fired for..

Don't really think it matters at this point what HTC does... Their products will just not sell well

Which sucks because HTC's current offerings (going back to the HTC 10) sans the U Ultra had been slam dunks. Yeah yeah, no headphone jack, but otherwise credit where it's due.

it looks that the battery is the best thing in this phone! I hope they will make it with new useful features

How will HTC differentiate a product we've seen months earlier?
