HTC U11 Plus may be the device for you if you’d somehow wished the flagship smartphone U11 were a little bigger. While sharing most features in common, it packs a larger, higher-res display and shows a different design.
This phone sports similar alluring rear panel design as the HTC U11, which some describe as one of the most beautiful phones of the year. It retains the premium Liquid Surface glass finish on the rear. The HTC U11 Plus adds a Translucent black variant, which many people have instantly taken to.

A design improvement sees the 6-inch display make great use of its huge size. HTCU11 Plus boasts a screen-to-body ratio of 82 percent, better than that of the HTC U11. Unlike the standard variant, it has an 18:9 aspect ratio, putting it in the same class as the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8. It has a resolution of 2,880 x 1, 440 pixels.
HTC maintains the 12MP primary camera of the U11 on this one. It chooses not to be a party to the latest dual camera trend. The single sensor looks very capable, though. It uses HTC’s UltraPixel technology and has an f/1.7 aperture. There is optical image stabilisation (OIS) to improve shot taking. You can record high quality 4K videos with it.
The Taiwanese phone maker slims the selfie shooter to 8 MP on this one. But the camera boasts an 85-degree wide-angle lens and HDR.
