One of the last phones to come out in 2017 was the HTC U11+. The U11+ is an extraordinary phone, but actually buying one is quite the chore. Customers in the UK can only purchase the U11+ through HTC's website, and folks in the U.S. are simply out of luck. Thankfully, our Indian readers are now getting the chance to check out HTC's latest as the U11+ is now available on Flipkart.
In case you forgot what the U11+ brings to the table, let me run you through a quick refresher. The U11+ is the first HTC phone to adopt the 18:9 aspect ratio, and it does so with a 6-inch display and very slim bezels. The phone's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM, and a large 3,930 mAh battery offers great endurance.
You'll also find 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2TB, IP68 dust/water resistance, Edge Sense, and Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
The U11+ is only available in the Amazing Silver color (sorry, no transparent back) and it'll cost you ₹56,990 (around $886 USD). It's still an incredibly solid smartphone, but before you pull the trigger, don't forget that the U12 is right around the corner.
No matter what you decide to do, you can buy the U11+ on Flipkart with a click/tap of the button below.

The U12 being around the corner is my only consolation... snif, snif.
What isn't mentioned much, is value for money, I paid £620 in the UK direct from HTC.
In India it’s not much value for money . I just got pixel 2xl 128gb with two year warranty for 59k after cashback. Which is not only cheaper but to many a Better phone
The only thing(s) keeping me from importing this phone to use on T-Mobile is the supposed dimness of the screen at max brightness, and the fact that the battery life achievable might only be equivalent to that of the Note 8, due to its LCD screen (as opposed to AMOLED) and lack of battery optimization. Sure, everyone's mileage varies, but with that battery capacity, there's no excuse not to have a SOT in the high sevens, or at most, 9 hours, as well as superior standby time. Prime example, Huawei. Anyway, add that to the fact that there's virtually no support in the way of accessories(rugged cases like UAG, for example), and you have a no sale with me. Plus with the U12 around the corner, it makes no sense. And speaking of sense, Sense UI is in definite need of a visual overhaul. It's a shame, because I love BoomSound, especially with earbuds.
I would have bought it but no band 2 att support
