HTC Announces U11 Release Date
HTC have announced the U11 will be available in Australia from major retailers and telcos starting next Monday, June 5, 2017.
Announced earlier this month, the $999 U11 incorporates “the most advanced features ever in a smartphone” according to HTC, including new touch interaction using Edge Sense, active noise cancelling HTC USonic earphones, and cameras with a DXOMark score of 90, the highest rating ever for a smartphone camera.
“We are proud to bring such a complete, premium smartphone experience to Australian consumers, yet again showcasing HTC’s credentials in design and innovation,” said Thomas Dexmier, HTC Australia and New Zealand Head of Sales and Marketing.
“Incredibly, the HTC U11 audio experience strengthens our already ‘gold standard’ industry position, which when coupled with the worlds’ best smartphone camera, delivers a formidable package to consumers at a price that belies its high end smartphone status,” Dexmier said.
