HTC introduced a new flagship U11+

The Life is essentially the budget version of HTC's latest flagship, running $349 - actually a pretty steep discount over the U11's $649. On the negative side of things, it does not offer support for the Moto Mods modular accessories.

The HTC U11 shares nearly the same hardware as its predecessor, it is rocking the Snapdragon 835 processor paired up with 4 Gigabytes of RAM and 64 Gigabytes of internal storage, there is another model available with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. But now they are talking about dual rear camera handsets. Interestingly, the front-facing camera is staying put at 16MP. Citing sources familiar with HTC and Google have claimed that the new U11+ is indeed the "Muskie" device which was reported in June to be shelved. However, in the USA, the company will be shipping this devices with its Sense UI.

We don't know for sure when the HTC U11 Plus will land, but the phone has now been officially unveiled so we know most of the details.

A release date for Australia is now unclear, but we've asked HTC and hope to hear more soon.

The HTC U11+ sticks on to a single rear camera with 12MP resolution and also the 3.5mm headphone jack is absent as well. Apart from that, the device also features support for the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa virtual assistants. The user interface is very simple and accessible, you can swipe up from anywhere on the screen to bring the app drawer and swipe down from anywhere to bring the notification panel which is gonna help a lot to people with short hands. The smartphone is available in silver and black colours and its price tag in Europe will be 799 euros. That means HTC has been able to include a 6-inch screen without increasing the body size too much.

On the other hand, the Moto X4 has a larger battery, 3.5mm headphone jack, dual cameras and is cheaper if you're a Prime member. The handset houses a battery of 3,393mAh and comes with an 8-megapixel camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear with f/1.7 aperture. The special feature of Edge Sense technology in of HTC U11 Life and HTC U11 Plus is taking the smartphone enthusiasts by storm.
