  • Impressive display

    The 5.5-inch WQHD display offers pin-sharp resolution, and promises to make everything you do look awesome.

  • Squeezy sides

    The U11’s party trick is a function called Edge Sense™, which lets you do stuff, like snapping selfies, with just a squeeze.

  • Return of the UltraPixel

    The main camera is 12MP and uses large pixels to let in loads of light for bright photos.

  • Super selfies

    At 16MP, the front-facing camera outweighs the rear one, able to deliver picture-perfect selfies every time.

Design and display

Beautiful build

The HTC U11 features a seamless, symmetrical design, built around a strong metal frame. The 5.5-inch Quad HD display is made of 3D glass, flowing seamlessly into the rest of the phone with subtle curves. And it’s protected against both water and dust – certified as IP67. 

Edge Sense™ by HTC

Edge Sense is HTC’s intuitive new technology, letting you perform tasks on the smartphone by squeezing its sides. The commands can be completely customised, but a few of the highlights include taking selfies, launching Google Assistant, or flicking the torch on and off.

HTC USonic™

Enjoy your favourite albums like never before with HTC’s audio technology. USonic combines noise-cancelation with a system that lets you personalise the way you listen, creating a completely unique audio experience. 


Your best side, every time

On the front of the smartphone, above the display, you’ll find a powerful 16MP front-facing lens - built specifically for high quality selfies. The smart camera is packed with special features to get your best angle, like live makeup overlays, auto selfies (able to detect when you’re smiling), and it can record video in 1080p. 

UltraPixel quality

HTC smartphones have always delivered high quality snaps, and the U11 - of course - is no different. The 12MP UltraPixel camera sucks in loads of light with its 1.4um pixels and wide f/1.7 aperture, making for bright, colourful photos every time. 

Under the hood

No shortage of power

The U11 is packing loads of power, with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB RAM. The smartphone will have no problem running large games, or streaming high quality films, and if you’re looking for space, there’s room to expand the 64GB storage by 2TB with a microSD card. 

Assistance is on hand

There’s no shortage of virtual help available on the U11. With Google Assistant as standard, as well as HTC’s very own Sense Companion, you’ll never have to type out a web search again. And if you need reminding of pretty much anything – just ask.

HTC U11 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I've ever owned Bought this phone like 5 months ago, disappointed by s8 plus. Great feel in hand, reliable fingerprint reader, great camera, great audio input and output, great battery life despite only 3000mah. And snappy and lag free u. I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent! Bought mine today. Easy transfer of data from my htc m9 although some apps didn't transfer but will sort that out myself. Camera is fantastic with top notch detail & clarity. Music playback is also excellent. Screen colours top notch. Very easy to use & much improved battery life. I like the new features too. I'm not normally particularly brand loyal but this is now my fourth Htc & I Am very impressed so far. Speed and ease of use 10/10 from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Phone. I have the dual sim solar red version and it looks fantastic. It has an excellent camera. Superb audio system. It does everything efficiently and fast. The network signal and wifi is much more reliable than the htc 10.. Probably because it doesn't have a metal body. Some say the squeeze function on the phone is a gimmick.. It's a very good idea and works well. You could call lot's of features on various phones a gimmick. There's nothing bad to say about this phone. It doesn't have wireless charging or a full infinitely display but who cares? I don't! HTC should advertise this phone on TV and people would realise how good their products are. Oh and it's waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best phone I have ever used! The camera on the HTC U11 is amazing, I can see why it got the highest DXO Mark score. As for audio, can't believe HTC found away to make it even better. Audio that can be adjusted according to your hearing. I'm looking forward to seeing Alexa updated on my U11.
