It has been exactly one year and a day since the HTC U11 was unveiled, marking the beginning of the company’s ‘Liquid Metal’ design language. Plenty has happened since then; Google purchased a large chunk of HTC’s hardware team, and both the U11 Life and U11+ have been released.
We hadn’t heard much about HTC’s next flagship, until Evan Blass on Twitter shared pictures of the phone. He later posted the full specifications, which revealed a few interesting details.

The HTC U11+ looks a bit different than the company’s other ‘Liquid Metal’ phones; the glossy finish seems to be gone, at least in these press images. On the front is a 6-inch 2880×1440 18:9 Super LCD screen, and on the back are dual cameras. One is a 12MP wide-angle lens with ‘HTC UltraPixel’, and the other is a 16MP telephoto lens.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 845, with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage (with microSD expansion). The spec sheet also lists “new pressure-sensitive buttons and a new touch feedback experience,” with the name ‘Edge Sense 2’ showing up on another page.
