Only 9 countries will receive the HTC U11 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage
HTC has produced two different versions of its new flagship phone. The HTC U11 found in the U.S. at Sprint, or unlocked from HTC, features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. But another unlocked version of the U11 comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. While the latter model isn't coming to the U.S., you can still have it imported to the states (more on that below).

So just exactly where can you find this enhanced version of the HTC U11? A tweet sent out by ROM developer @LlabTooFeR lists the nine countries where the higher spec'd variant of the phone can be found. They include China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines. This is a preliminary list, and more countries could be added to it as time goes on.


Meanwhile, the Sprint branded model can be pre-ordered for $696. At HTC.com, the phone can be pre-ordered for $649. Again, this is for the version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. A company in Chicago called Overseas Electronics is an importer offering the unit with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage for $749.99. Keep in mind that the unlocked HTC U11 is compatible with Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.


The phone is expected to ship later this month. Check out our review by clicking on this link.

Why? Why not just release one version for everyone? But I guess in reality it's not going to do well anyway, so why not fragment the hardware eh.

Well they could be pulling a Samsung and the model could have 6gb of Ddr3 ram. I'd rather have 4gb ddr4x vs 6gb Ddr3. Faster and more power efficient.

This is not true ! They are using 6GB of DDR4x RAM in the htc U11. Even the 4GB RAM variant uses the same (i.e. DDR4x RAM).

Some Android fans would rather pick one brand and stick to it instead of being open-minded and embracing good stuff from the competitions.... that's sad

if I wanted it and didnt get it because I didnt deserve it then fine. I dont want it, so deserving something I dont want makes no sense. failed comment. and by your picture, youre a biased fanboy. so obviously you would say that. are you falling for that pathetic scam htc is offering goodies "here and there" to fake commentors how good htc is? what I can say is this. bottom line, look at the numbers. upsell htc as you want, the numbers dont lie. the majority now hate them and their sales are crap. period. reminds me BB fanboys when bb was working on the os 10 and people bulls**t comments how great it is. look at them today. this will be the same for htc. im betting that in 3 years they will be forced out of the market.

Limited in certain countries... I guess the most expensive versions ought to be sold in the countries with the higher consumer base.

Great to know that there is a higher end version! Hopefully they sell more of the higher end version and lower the price.

Sadly....I don't know whether where to buy a U11 here in the philippines and how they're going to sell it here. Until now I thought HTC never sold their phones in the PH, they seriously never market here.

Why would anyone order the sprint model, when you could get it for $50 cheaper from HTC? I guess if you need to finance it with your plan....

Why do they do this hardware fragmentation? Is the US no longer an important market or do these beefed up phones just not sell here?
