XDA Developers spotted the HTC-made device within the AOSP last week and, although it's not exactly the same as the device unveiled today, it bears numerous hallmarks of the new HTC U11 Plus. If you're not interested in the Galaxy Note 8 or Google Pixel 2 XL, the HTC U11+ might be ideal. Edge Sense also makes a return, allowing you to squeeze the phone to launch an app of your choice. I liked this phone a lot, and so did most other reviewers. It's a bit like the HTC U Play but with some U11 bits and pieces thrown in. The U11 Life doesn't even come with a headphone jack adapter in the box!

Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC has launched its latest smartphones under the U series. Another potential problem is where it's being released. There is no word on the phone's availability in the Indian market as of now.

A few rumors suggested the phone will arrive in early December, but that's all we have to go on. One thing that changed is the software version. Along with HTC U11 Plus, the company also introduced HTC U11 Life as a mid-range smartphone. It's relatively compact for a phone with a 6-inch display, but still thicker than recent flagships. Since then we've seen the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, and iPhone X arrive with a better design. So while many other companies - Apple included - have ditched the headphone jack with the promise of something better, HTC is the first company to actually successfully do that. The display is a Super LCD6 (1440x2880p) with Gorilla Glass 5. HTC has slimmed down the bezels quite a bit on this phone, even though the top and bottom still have a bit left over. Of course, due to the new design, the fingerprint sensor is now on the back of the handset. HTC told us that carriers will get the 4GB/64GB version while the rest of the distribution channel will flog 3GB/32GB versions.

HTC is using a 2:1 aspect ratio where the screen is taller and skinnier than older phones, making it easier to hold and use the big screen. Both versions have a microSD slot that can accept cards as large as 2 TB to add more capacity. You still get the same curvy body and squeezable sides found on HTC 's more expensive flagship, which sports IP67 water resistance, but with a smaller 5.2-inch full HD display (instead of the 5.5-inch QHD panel that comes on the standard U11).

"PC-class" support offered for new Galaxy Note8 Enterprise Edition
In the leak, Samsung also notes that the beta program is "First come, first served", so you'll want to act fast. We'll have to wait for Samsung to make the official announcement and provide the update via its servers.

While the biggest difference between the U11 and the U11+ is the display, that isn't the only area that received improvements. However, the phone that is launched in the USA comes with HTC's Sense UI on Android 7.1 Nougat, though it is also scheduled to get Android 8.0 Oreo before November ends.
