HTC has released in January 2017 the U Ultra device and this month (June 2017), the Taiwanese manufacturer has brought the U11 handset. Today we will compare these two devices and let you decide if you want to purchase the newest handset that HTC has just released or just get the one that got released half a year ago.
The HTC U Ultra measures 162.4×79.8x8mm and weights 170 grams. It has an ionized glass back that’s curved on to the device’s four corners, and which changes its color (reflections) according to the light around it.
On the other hand, the HTC U11 is more chunky, but slimmer and lighter, as it measures 153.9×75.9×7.9mm and weighs 169 grams. The difference between the two devices is that the U11 has its glass back bolted onto the metal frame.
The HTC U Ultra has a primary 5.7-inch super LCD5 display that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 513 ppi and a secondary 2.05-inch display (for showing notifications) that supports a resolution of 1040×160 pixels. The HTC 11 has a smaller display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 534 ppi.
