htc U11 life

Squeeze to do more. Faster.

Created by HTC. Powered by Google.

HTC U11 life gives you the best innovations from HTC U11 without putting the squeeze on your wallet.

It all starts with our latest innovation, Edge Sense. A simple squeeze lets you do things faster and some things never before possible!

And there's so much more. HTC USonic for audio that's adapted to you, with Active Noise Cancellation so you can truly lose yourself in the moment. A camera that captures stunningly clear photos and videos. A phone with a weather resistant IP67 rating that can handle and maintain high-level performance in even rough weather.

And the HTC U11 life is an Android One phone that features a best-in-class software experience designed by Google.

All it takes is one squeeze to fall in love with HTC U11 life.

Ready, set, squeeze

HTC U11 life features our highly acclaimed, groundbreaking technology - Edge Sense.

A simple squeeze now lets you do more than ever before in a snap. Launching your camera is incredibly fast. Just pick up your phone and squeeze. Another squeeze and you've just captured a magical moment. No more fumbling for buttons or awkward hand positions. A squeeze also lets you switch easily and smoothly between the front and main cameras. With Edge Sense, taking pictures on your smartphone with one hand is easy and you can hold it just like a real camera. You can even launch your favorite apps. Call up a voice assistant. It's fast, intuitive and easy one-handed operation.

Innovation that's a gimme, not a gimmick

Not only can you launch your favorite app, now you can also squeeze to utilize features within that app! Squeeze to open Google Maps and Google Photos, then again to zoom in. Easily capture photos with 3rd party cameras like those in Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. The possibilities are almost endless! HTC U11 life gives you one-handed convenience, flexibility and the power to do more, perfect for today's fast-paced world. It's a feature that should be a gimme on every smartphone, not a gimmick.




The Google Assistant is just a squeeze away

Meet your Google Assistanti on HTC U11 life. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It's your own personal Google, always ready to help. To get started, just say "Ok Google" even when the screen is off or squeeze the device to get help whenever you need it.


Amazing photos in any weather

With HTC U11 life's weather resistant IP67 ratedii package, Edge Sense lets you snap great photos with a simple squeeze even when there is dust, rain or snow coming at you. When the elements make it tough to use your screen, Edge Sense makes it possible to click away effortlessly without even having to touch the screen.

During the winter months when it's both wet and cold, keep the gloves on and your hands dry and toasty while Edge Sense lets you use your phone easily.

Enjoy your new love in silence

Shut out the noise. HTC USonic incorporates Active Noise Cancellation, which reduces disruptions and distractions around you, so you can stay immersed in your music, videos or games. Active Noise Cancellation works automatically, continuously monitoring environmental sound levels and quickly adjusting to new noises or disturbances.

Earbuds that listen to U and know what's best

Immerse yourself in one of the most personal audio experiences on a smartphone. HTC U11 life brings you the same experience on HTC U11 of unmatched audio with HTC USonic with Active Noise Cancellation and the ability to tune audio to your unique hearing. Other headsets focus more on trying to tailor your ears to the sound coming from the headset. We take the opposite approach. Our USonic earbuds map your inner ear with an advanced sonar-like technology and then adapt the sound profile to your unique biology. This creates an incredibly personal and optimized listening experience with vibrant audio tailored specifically for you.

Hi-Res sound tailored to U

Like HTC U11, HTC USonic with Active Noise Cancellation on HTC U11 life is Hi-Res Audio certified for truly epic sound on a smartphone. Enjoy the highest highs and the lowest lows with 24-bit sound that blows away what you'd hear on a CD. With Hi-Res Audio, it's possible to hear notes and sounds you might not have ever known were there!

16 million reasons and more to love this camera

Life moves pretty fast and you need a camera that can keep up and let you master a key component of great photos: light. With HTC U11 life, we're giving you just that. A 16MP shooter with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) for super fast focus speeds with reduced blur. Our camera also gives you HDR Boost without the lag and more dynamic exposure range, major noise reduction, excellent detail preservation and better white balance enhancement.

With HTC U11 life, you'll love all the memories you can capture with this superb camera.

Give yourself some love. Day or night

The new front camera combines high-resolution 16MP detail and our UltraPixel light sensitivity for brilliant selfies day or night. It also utilizes the same powerful HDR Boost and noise reduction as the main camera. Take your selfie game to the next level with the HTC U11 life front camera.

Amazing HDR without the wait

HDR Boost, which we introduced on HTC U11, is such a great feature that we had to make sure you have it on HTC U11 life. HDR Boost gives you all the benefits of HDR without the lag. HDR Boost delivers clearer, more balanced pictures by taking multiple shots that measure the darkest shadows and brightest highlights without slowdown. HTC U11 life enhances textures and colors, increases visible detail and brings out the best in every shot.

Memories of a lifetime in 4K and Hi-Res Audio

HTC U11 life brings you our Temporal Noise Reduction technology that captures some of the clearest video yet. Our camera analyzes information from the previous and next frames and then removes unwanted electronic noise so you can enjoy some of the smoothest, most vivid video from a smartphone camera. Add in 4K video recording with 30 frames per second (fps) to Hi-Res Audio recording for crisp sights and sounds on whatever you record.

Get the latest from Google

The HTC U11 life brings you the best of Android from the start. You'll get everything you want, in one place, like a secure phone featuring your favorite Google apps including YouTube, the Google Assistant, Google Maps and more. Plus, the Android One software experience is simple and easy to navigate and customize. The HTC U11 life ships with Android™ 8.0 Oreo. Smarter, faster, more powerful and sweeter than ever, Android™ 8.0 Oreo optimizes your battery performance so you can do whatever you love, longer.


Powerful, not power hungry

HTC U11 life powered by the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 mobile platformv gives you the performance you'd expect from a top-notch mobile processor. Though it's amazingly small at 14nm, it packs a powerful punch providing you crystal clear graphics, seamless streaming of hi-def movies or staying connected at ridiculously fast speeds on less battery power. Compared with HTC 10, you get close to 2 hours more video playback, 20 hours more music playback on the speaker, 14 hours more playback with headphones and close to 2 hours longer web browsing time via Every HTC U11 life comes with this same performance no matter where you are in the world.

A salute to the beauty of HTC U11

HTC U11 life's design is a continuation of our liquid surface design philosophy. Inspired by the beauty and grace of glass, HTC U11 life incorporates an acrylic glass back surface that's pleasing to the eye. The phone is crafted to impress using Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition. By layering highly-refractive precious minerals across the phone's back cover, we've created stunningly vivid colorsiv that transform light with every movement you make.

Light in your pocket and symmetrically slim

While HTC U11 life is heavy on great features, it's surprisingly light, weighing a mere 142g. It's symmetrically slim too as we've incorporated the 3-axis symmetry concept of HTC U11 to give you a phone that is slim no matter which way you hold it. Not only is HTC U11 life beautiful but it offers a comfortable grip as well.

An eye-popping show of color

The 5.2" Full HD display on HTC U11 life brings out incredible colors to make whatever you're viewing or playing a real treat. And it's protected with Gorilla Glass for durability and better resistance to those deep scratches that can cause glass to break.
