Despite going through a lot of changes in the last few months, HTC is continuing to do what other phone makers are doing heading into the busy holiday shopping season -- introduce new devices. This week saw the Taiwanese phone maker officially announce a couple of handsets, namely the HTC U11 Plus and the HTC U11 Life.
Not too long ago, HTC was considered as one of the largest phone makers of Android powered mobile devices across the globe. Some even say that the brand was one of the pioneers, especially with past releases like the T-Mobile G1 (which is viewed by many as one of the earliest Android phones), and of course, the Nexus One, the first ever Google Nexus smartphone.
It appears that Boost Mobile is not the only launching a back to school promotion deal. Mobile virtual network operator Tello is also introducing its own back to school special offer -- specifically a generous $20 discount on selected mobile devices that are purchased together with a wireless plan.
Itching to purchase HTC’s newest flagship smartphone offering, the U11? Then you might be delighted to know that the Taiwanese phone maker has decided to make its latest device available with a $50 discount on the full retail price. This means that the U11 can now be bought for only $599.
About a month ago, HTC had formally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone device, the HTC U11. The phone had generated some buzz not only with its impressive specifications, but also with is squeezable capabilities, which allows users to operate the handset by squeezing the device’s sides (more on this later). Well, the HTC U11 smartphone has officially launched in the United States mobile market, by way of major US wireless carrier Sprint, retail giant Amazon, and through HTC’s official online store (HTC.com).
HTC has unveiled its newest flagship offering, and it is called the HTC U11. This handset combines a stylish design with some high end specifications, including pressure sensors that allow mobile users to squeeze the device to control it (as rumored nearly a month ago). But wait -- didn’t the Taiwanese phone maker just recently release a flagship smartphone, the U Ultra? Well, the answer to that question is not that simple.
Yup -- the Taiwanese phone maker has confirmed that it will indeed be planning to launch a squeezable smartphone offering called the U. When you think of the term “squeezable,” images of something rubbery may come to mind, but HTC’s upcoming device is actually more high tech than that.
HTC recently took the opportunity to announce via a post on Twitter that it is reducing the price of its U Ultra smartphone from $749 to just $599. That new pricing represents a whopping $150 drop from the original cost. It bears noting that the high end phablet was just launched in the United States mobile market a month ago, and it is difficult to see if this latest move by the Taiwanese phone maker will help invigorate its sales numbers.
Fresh from relaunching its unlimited data option, Verizon Wireless is now taking full advantage of the momentum to introduce a new trade in deal targeted to those looking to sign up for its Verizon Unlimited plan for the first time. Indeed, those availing of unlimited data under the Big Red and willing to trade in an existing mobile device will get to take home any one of the following popular handsets:
A user of the Weibo mobile chat app has posted an alleged screenshot of the settings menu of HTC’s upcoming smartphone, the HTC 11, and it appears that the Taiwan based phone maker’s latest handset offering will be taking full advantage of the capabilities of Qualcomm’s newest and mightiest chip, the Snapdragon 835.
