And just as a Plus model should be, the new phone is all about a larger display and a bigger battery while much of everything else has been carried over from the U11. If you have the YouTube app, you can remap the squeeze to take you to the subscriptions window or if you are in Google Maps, you squeeze to zoom in or zoom out.

The HTC U11 Plus is a bigger version of the existing HTC U11, with a larger 6in 18:9 aspect ratio edge-to-edge display and a number of upgrades and tweaks to its spec line-up. HTC will sell the U11+ with 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of speedy UFS 2.1 storage, or in a higher-end configuration with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. However, the phone that is launched in the United States comes with HTC's Sense UI on Android 7.1 Nougat, though it is also scheduled to get Android 8.0 Oreo before November ends. We'll test out performance including benchmarks soon. The Sense version for North America will get 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. Each has a microSD card slot to expand storage, a 2600mAh battery, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. This means the fingerprint sensor moves to the back and the phone does not come with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

There might not be HTC's BoomSound speakers here but there are still some features for audio fans. There's also an adapter should you want to use a set of cans with a regular 3.5mm jack. The Plus rocks a 3.930mAh battery, which is quite incredible compared to the HTC U11's 3.000mAh energy pack. Up front is another 16MP snapper for selfies and video calls. The main shooter supports PDAF, HDR, 4K video recording and has a LED flash. The camera also has an aperture of f/1.7.

How UK bank aided the Guptas
While he named the bank to the chancellor, he didn't identify the bank in his remarks. Hain did not mention the name of the bank in his address to the House of Lords.

We need time to test the cameras properly but they seem to be decent after some hands-on time.

Pick up the U11 and you'll immediately notice the cheaper body. However, the phone is not going to provide support for wireless charging. As the phone is a part of Android One program, Google will control its software updates. Let us know in your comments below. 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.

If you recall, muskie was initially rumoured as a codename for a third Pixel device to alongside the walleye and tamien devices that went on to become the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. My first time with this HTC device was encouraging, and I already consider it one of the most complete and compelling Android phones coming to the market this holiday season.
