The HTC U 11 is not a German submarine [#acpodcast]

It's not an under-11 soccer team or a Nazi submarine, but a new phone. The HTC U 11 is coming soon, and while we don't know much about it, we do know that it will try to bridge the gap between the HTC 10, an underrated phone, and the U series that began earlier this year with the U Ultra and U Play.

The OnePlus 5 is probably going to be one of the most exciting releases of the year, but with component prices increasing rapidly, can OnePlus maintain its "affordable flagship" tagline?

And Google I/O is next week! The guys break down what to expect, and what they want, from Google's annual developer conference!

  • Ha! As a history fan I love that German U-boat joke!
  • Thanks for listening!
  • I'm disappointed the U 11 doesn't have a Yellow option. I still wouldn't buy one, but two submarine references are better than one
  • 😂
  • Lol @ the title. Well done.
  • No IP68, no buy.
  • Still has 57.
  • Give me a ping, Vasilly.
    * PING*
  • Jerry is crazy..$579 for OP5?? C'mon One plus are not fools to increase the cost so drastically. Every year it's been a steady increase and this year probably we are looking at base of $470 and maybe $500-$520 for the higher end model.
  • And it will still look like an HTC M9!
  • The back half of this week's episode is fantastic. Great discussion. Good week guys.
  • The whole U 11 is not all that surprising. HTC makes good products, but can't seem to market themselves out of a paper bag. Does anyone remember their ads with Robert Downey Jr?
