HTC U11 gets Bluetooth 5.0 Firmware Update


As this latest update seems to be quite important considering the device hardware capabilities and its price as it will act as an added weapon in the U11 armory. If you don't remember, we reported last month that HTC U11 could get support for Bluetooth 5.0 in a future update.

When it comes to the design department, the HTC U11 Life appears to hit all the right buttons. The folks at Android Authority have gained some new details and have a render that shows what the alleged handset will look like.

The HTC U smartphone lineup is known for being camera centric and this is the same case with HTC U11 Life as well. Two of the best features about the new U11 Life is its compact form factor and the Edge Sense feature. Unfortunately, we have heard no word on the RAM capacity of the device. Earlier this week, news about HTC enabling 60 FPS video recording (1080p) for the U11 emerged as well. The rear side of the smartphone is also flanked with a 16-megapixel camera that is coupled with phase detection autofocus. The smartphone will be fueled by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 630 chipset which will be paired with 32GB of internal storage space.

In addition, the device would feature the HTC USonic technology, which means that the 3.5mm audio jack would be missing. Other than that, the upcoming HTC phone is speculated to arrive with pre-installed Android 7.1.1 Nougat Os layered with the company's own Sense 9 interface and Bluetooth 5.0.

The pressure-sensitive edges present on HTC U11as Edge Sense will be also be there on HTC U11 Lite.
