The HTC U11 has a glass unibody-like design with an aluminium frame that includes pressure sensitive points for the implementation of HTC Edge Sense. It is fitted with a 5.5-inch Super LCD 5 Quad HD (2560 × 1440 pixels) display. The front glass is produced out of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 while the rear glass uses Gorilla Glass 3.

The rear camera is 12 megapixels with 1.4μm pixels and an f1.7 aperture; it also includes OIS and Ultraspeed Autofocus. The front (selfie) camera is 16 MP with an f2.0 aperture; it also includes EIS.

The HTC U11 also includes 4 microphones for 24-bit 360-degree audio recording. It also has Boomsound stereo speakers where the earpiece acts as the treble while the bottom firing speaker acts as the subwoofer. Dust and waterproofing are included with a certification of IP67.[1]

The phone will ship with the Snapdragon 835 and will include either 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage or 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage.[2]


The HTC U11 will ship with Android 7.1 Nougat with an overlay of HTC Sense UI. Google Assistant, Amazon's Alexa and Baidu Duer (China only)[3] are pre-installed with Alexa only becoming available within 30 days of the U11 shipping.[1] HTC Sense Companion is installed to make personalized suggestions by learning from daily routines and suggestions based on the user's location.

HTC Edge SenseEdit

HTC Edge Sense is a new way of interacting with your phone. Basically, a long or short squeeze to the phone's frame will carry out various actions such as launching apps or your chosen voice assistant. Squeezing the frame can also help with capturing pictures with one hand or under water. Pressure sensitive points embedded within the frame enable the Edge Sense feature to operate.


On June 15, 2017, Chang Chia-lin, the president of HTC's smartphone and connected device division, said that the HTC U11 had been selling better than its predecessors, the HTC One M9 and the HTC 10.[4]
