Description

The HTC U11+ is a high-end Android 8.0 phone with top-of-the-line specs and outstanding design features. It also happens to be the company's first phone with a taller, 18:9 display capable of displaying HDR10 content. Further perks include water resistance, a huge battery, and a pair of active noise-cancelling earphones in the box. All of that is topped by a fast, Snapdragon 835 chip and plenty of memory tucked inside a highly reflective body made of glass and metal. For those who find the idea neat, a variant of the phone with a translucent back plate is also available.

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2880 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 537 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
