The HTC U11 Life: Squeeze Your Phone, Not Your Wallet


Earlier this week we introduced a new member to the U11 family, the HTC U11 life! The HTC U11 life brings many features that made the HTC U11 a top-ranked smartphone this year at a lower price. Here’s just a few things to be excited about:

Squeeze-tastic — First introduced with the HTC U11, Edge Sense prompts your phone to do a user-customized action by just squeezing your phone. This means your camera is always ready to rock, and a flashlight is always handy—even if your phone is locked. It can also be used for in-app actions such as skipping songs in Google Music, or zooming-in with Google Maps—all with a squeeze.

Super Capable Cameras — The HTC U11 Life’s main camera features Phase Detection Autofocus for fast focus speeds and reduced motion blur. It also has HDR Boost which delivers all the benefits of HDR without the lag. On the flipside (get it?), the front-facing camera combines high-resolution 16MP with our UltraPixel technology so your selfies will always look great, even when low-light. More into video? You can also capture 4K video.

Sturdy and Stunning  The HTC U11 life features an acrylic glass back that stunningly transforms light with every movement you make. It’s also rated IP67, so it can withstand anything you throw at it—rain, snow, or dust. • HTC USonic  Our stellar-sounding USonic headphones are included in the box, and are equipped with the same High-Res, 24-bit sound that you love about the HTC U11. In addition to built-in Active Noise Cancellation, USonic sonar technology adapts to your ears providing the most personal listening experience available on a smartphone.

Pocketable Powerhouse — Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ 630 mobile platform is built to support the U11 life’s high-end features such as LTE connectivity, fast autofocus, immersive audio, and true-to-life display colors all while sipping battery power.

Milk’s Favorite Cookie The Latest and Greatest  HTC U11 life runs Android 7.1 Nougat with the latest HTC Sense experience right out of the box, making it both fresh and familiar. An upgrade to Android Oreo will be available within 30 days.

• About that Wallet — All of these top-tier features are available for around half the price of other flagship devices—just $349 USD ($449 CAD). This incredibly affordable addition to the U11 family maintains the most sought-after hardware features, while also being optimized for performance. The HTC U11 life in Sapphire Blue is available in the US and Canada from November 2nd at HTC.com, and in T-Mobile stores nationwide and att-mobile.com from November 3rd. Outside of the US, check out HTC.com or your local smartphone retailer. Give it a squeeze and tell us what you think in the comments below.
