The headline is a reference to the fact that you can squeeze this phone to make it do things. And don't even think about anything other than translucent black

The anticipated update to the HTC U11 is finally here. The HTC U11+ does its predecessor justice by offering up a larger screen, more battery and a sleeker design, among other upgrades. Feeling like an upgrade in 2018? Here’s a phone worth checking out.

HTC U11+: What’s new

The HTC U11+ was unveiled late last year and we’ve been waiting to get our hands on it. We had a lot of fun with the U11 and the U11+ promises a lot more. The unique Edge Sense from the HTC U11 comes with an upgrade. The squeeze feature can now be set up to work with almost any feature within an app. You can set it to play music, launch an app and more.

HTC U11+: Specs at a glance

With a 6-inch display, 18:9 aspect ratio and a WQ HD+ (2,880 x 1,440) Super LCD 5 screen, consuming media on this device is going to be great. A whopping 3,930mAh battery should give you a lot of function throughout the day. With 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory, the phone promises to be both quick and spacious. HTC’s BoomSound will come with 30 per cent more volume and the HTC USonic earbuds that come with the phone will have active noise cancellation built in.

The HTC U11+ is also IP68 certified with a weather-resistant liquid surface design. It’ll be loaded with Android’s latest Oreo out the box.

HTC U11+: Pricing

You can get yourself a HTC U11+ in ceramic black, amazing silver or translucent black. “Translucent” isn’t just a name but a description. This version of the phone comes with a translucent glass back that definitely trumps the other options. Priced at Dh2,849, you can buy it from HTC’s online store or any major retailers.
