HTC U11 Plus improves on the original in almost every way

Google has also confirmed that HTC U11 Life will receive an upgrade to Android P when it becomes available next year. I liked this phone a lot, and so did most other reviewers.
Compared with the eventual LG-made Pixel 2 XL, the HTC U11 matches the 6-inch, 18:9, 2880 x 1440 resolutiondisplay. The slender bezels can not be compared to Samsung and LG's extreme Galaxy S8 and V30 designs, but they unquestionably are the thinnest that HTC has produced for a very long time. The devices launched by the smartphone maker are known as U11 Plus and the U11 Life. Another potential problem is where it's being released.
The phone will only launch in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, but not in the USA, and be available in a so-called "Ceramic Black" colour (which is not made out of actual ceramic) - the see-through version leaked yesterday does exist, but The Verge reports that the company hasn't decided whether to actually bring it to market yet.
A few rumors suggested the phone will arrive in early December, but that's all we have to go on. The back of the phone has the same 12-MP picture-taker with optical and electronic image stabilization as the U11, and the user-facing camera is now an 8-MP unit with a wider 85° field-of-view. Now we know why: that's what it was initially intended and created to be. HTC U11 has been one of the best smartphones of 2017. It looks the same, sure, but it's actually a smaller and lighter version, since the HTC U11 has a 5.5-inch display, while the life packs a more compact 5.2-incher.
The HTC U11 was already an appealing handset, and the HTC U11 Plus is an improved version of it.
HTC is using a 2:1 aspect ratio where the screen is taller and skinnier than older phones, making it easier to hold and use the big screen. There's also a microSD card slot should you need to add more. The HTC U11+ is IP68 rated water and dust resistant and due to the thin bezels, the fingerprint sensor is now placed below the rear-mounted camera.
While the biggest difference between the U11 and the U11+ is the display, that isn't the only area that received improvements. On the software side, it runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, with HTC Sense drizzled on top. Here's the full rundown for those interested. The HTC U11 Plus may feature less impressive cameras, but it makes up for it with the Bluetooth 5.0, and the larger battery. The same "Liquid" glass design is back, this time in blue, ceramic black, and a new translucent design that lets you see some of the phone's internals.
Pick up the U11 and you'll immediately notice the cheaper body. Although that could change in the near future. The problem here is that at $349, the U11 Life has just entered a territory that isn't so competitive in the U.S. It gets even worse to know that at such a price, you can still get a decent flagship phone from 2016.
