Although we don't have any details on pricing (which is what we were waiting for), but we do know everything else about the device now as it has been officially launched. The first batch of orders will begin shipping on 1 June. This puts it one point ahead of the Google Pixel and two ahead of the HTC 10, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7 Edge and Sony Xperia X Performance.

Of course, the new HTC U11 will not be complete without new optics. For selfies, the handset has 15.8MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture.

HTC is all set to launch its second flagship of 2017, the HTC U 11, at a simultaneous event tomorrow in New York, London, and Taipei.

Inside the smartphone is a 3000mAh battery, 64/128GB of storage, a Snapdragon 835 processor (up to 2.45 Ghz), and 4/6GB of RAM, depending on the specifications you select. It can also be further expanded up to 2TB via memory card. The slim physical home button placed on the front comes integrated with a fingerprint sensor. Unlike the main shooter, you only get support of up to 1080p video recording. On the front of the handset will be a 16MP selfie camera with UltraPixel technology. The device measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9 mm and weighs 169 grams. Although Google Assistant may already be enough for most folks, HTC has also added Amazon's Alexa onto the HTC U11. The Taiwanese phone maker brings a new way of interacting with the phone and calling it Edge Sense.

HTC U11 sports a 5.5-inch quad-HD display that is protected by IP67 water and dust resistant technology.

The cameras are also capable of recording 4K videos, comes with 360 sound recording and delivers high resolution audio. The OS for the smartphone is Android 7.0 with HTC Sense over the top. The phone has a USB type C port, Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, and HTC Connect built in.

The similarities between the U11 and the U Ultra don't end with the finish either, as the new phone omits the headphone jack too.
