    HTC U11 is HTC's latest flagship smartphone. HTC is currently touring the US hosting events showcasing the new HTC U11. I just got back from the Seattle Meetup and got to play with the U11. The U11 was launched on May 16th, 2017 and has been available to pre-order since then.

    I was also fortunate to chat with HTC's Aaron Baker, Head of the HTC's Elevate program, on what's new about the U11.

    Here is Android Central Community Review Team's HTC U11 first look and the chat with Aaron Baker:



    I think HTC has a winner on their hands. The U11 with its liquid glass surface showcases its brilliant design with awesome color choices:

    - Amazing Silver
    - Sapphire Blue
    - Brilliant Black

    The cool thing about the glass surface is that it transforms the colors based on various factors like lighting, direct sunlight etc., While we have seen something similar with the Honor 8's glass surface, the U11 goes step further giving vivid color transformations.

    Amazing Silver in direct sunlight:

    The U11 comes with its USonic earbuds which HTC promises to deliver a unique sound experience that suits you and the environment. Boomsound is also still available except it is no longer visible as seen in previous HTC phones.

    And for the smartphone photogs out there, HTC U11 camera is the highest rated smartphone camera with a DXOMark score of 90, better than Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8. U11 has a 16 MP front camera (selfies!) and a 12 Ultrapixel rear camera with a f/1.7 aperture and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) for support up to 4k recording.

    As far as the specs go, the U11 is equipped with:

    - Snapdragon 835
    - 5.5 Quad HD Display
    - HTC USonic Earbuds with active noise cancellation
    - 16 MP Front Camera (for those awesome selfies!)
    - 12 Ultra Pixel Rear Camera
    - 3000 mAh Battery
    - Android 7.1.1
    - HTC Edge Sense (squeeze it!)

    There is a lot to like about the new HTC U11. I will be doing more in-depth reviews once I get my hands on the device.

    HTC U11 is available to (pre)order at HTC's website and will be shipping in the 1st or 2nd week of June (no confirmed dates yet).

    Have you pre-ordered your HTC U11? What color did you choose? What do you think about the U11?
