HTC U11+ Goes On Sale In Malaysia On Jan 22, Pre-order Starts Jan 15

Friday, January 12, 2018


The HTC U11 was one of the best but also one of the most underrated smartphones to have released last year. It marked a renaissance of sorts for HTC after a few subpar releases in the last years and the widely-praised U11 went toe-to-toe with some of the top 2017 flagships. HTC even stepped up the game and went on to release the U11+ following that and the good news for Malaysians is that it is finally coming here.

Known as the “original” Google Pixel 2 XL that never was, the U11+ features the all-important 18:9 aspect ratio display which also means a much larger screen than its predecessor. As a result of the new form factor, the fingerprint reader has found its way to the back of the device. It also boasts a significantly larger battery, better dust and water protection, Bluetooh 5.0, Android Oreo out of the box and also not forgetting Edge Sense, the squeezable frame feature  – all packed into the same stunningly gorgeous glass and aluminum frame that many loved about the U11.
