HTC U11 Solar Red now up for pre-order
Yesterday was an important day for those looking for a special high-end smartphone, since the long-awaited OnePlus 5 finally became official, while the world's first squeezable handset, namely HTC U11, received a red variant.
After a few teasers, HTC USA introduced the Solar Red, already making it available for pre-order as well. This interesting color option has the same price as its siblings - $649 USD. The hardware beneath the red cover remains the same - Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, a 16 MP selfie camera and a 12 MP main image shooter that received an impressive score from DxOMark, a 3,000 mAh battery, all with Android 7.1 Nougat on top.
An HTC executive recently revealed that HTC U11 sales are very good, this handset outselling the old HTC M9 and M10. Nine markets are also expected to get a 6 GB RAM/128 GB storage HTC U11, and most likely the red version will get this hardware buff in those areas as well.
