HTC will launch dual rear camera smartphone in 2018

HTC's U11+ is a squeezable big-screen wonder HTC U11 and U11 Plus – What's New

It even offers IP68 water and dust resistance, which is better than the Moto Z2 lineup's "splashproof" rating.

What about the batteries?

Known by many, dual rear cameras are not something new in the gadget market across the globe.

We should see the U11 Plus and the U11 Life make their debut in 2018. As for the camera module, both the front and back shooters have 16MP lens with f/2.0 aperture, but no optical stabilization feature is included.

HTC has officially announced the expansion of its U11 smartphone lineup.

Edge Sense, the squeeze-to-use tech that's becoming all the rage in the smartphone world, is still an enviable feature. The bad news for fans in the U.S. is that the U11 Plus will not be released there. Though here, as with the U11, it can either trigger Google assistant or Alexa, rather than having to call them out by name. Since there are hundreds of choices of different types of mid-range phones available in the market, HTC's new phones will definitely going to be a big hit in the market as HTC has planned to launch these phones in the mid-range category.

Going by the specification and features of another variant of HTC U11 Plus this is the premium smartphone that also runs Android Oreo but comes with a large HD display of 6 inches with 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution. The user interface is very simple and accessible, you can swipe up from anywhere on the screen to bring the app drawer and swipe down from anywhere to bring the notification panel which is gonna help a lot to people with short hands.

The HTC U11 Life is now available from T-Mobile for $350 or you can get it unlocked directly from HTC.com.

What actually happened was the "Muskie" got axed, the LG "Taimen" became the Pixel XL 2 which eventually launched, alongside HTC's "Walleye" Pixel 2. If you're not, the purchase will take you back with $399. We will keep you updated if that plan changes, but for now HTC's official stance is it won't be bringing the U11 Plus to those in the US. The decision is up to you, but to recap the HTC U11 Life offers a sleek design, it's Cat.9 LTE compatible, comes with HTC USonic earbuds and includes the Edge Sense gimmick.
