Meet the evolution of the touch-screen smartphone: the HTC U11. HTC’s flagship is the world’s first phone with intuitive squeeze functionalities, creating a one-of-a-kind way of interacting with the device we often have in hand. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, the HTC U11’s features will wow the senses with its award-winning camera; adaptive headset, speakers, and microphone; and support for multiple intelligent assistants.

\n

Gigabit speeds with the Snapdragon 835

\n

The Snapdragon 835 packs advanced features into a small size — 10 nanometers to be exact. Our premium mobile platform has an integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, which is engineered to support peak download speeds of up to 1 Gbps. And while that’s impressive, it’s the real-world speeds that may truly wow you. Enjoy fast access to your files stored in the cloud, stream high quality videos uninterrupted, and download music for offline play quickly. With double the number of LTE antennas of typical LTE devices, you may get up to double the download speeds in good signal conditions, and up-to 70 percent faster speeds in weak coverage. With the Gigabit LTE capabilities of the HTC U11, you can enjoy fast speeds today, and even faster ones down the road as mobile networks are upgraded.

\n

And it’s not just download speeds – you may enjoy faster upload speeds and better coverage as well. Thanks to its support for High-Power User Equipment (HPUE) technology, the HTC U11 can enjoy up-to 30 percent wider coverage on Sprint’s LTE Plus network in the U.S.

\n

The mobile platform tackles each application with its integrated Qualcomm Kryo 280 CPU, Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU, and Qualcomm Hexagon 682 DSP, designed to work together efficiently to manage separate workloads. These Snapdragon 835 components are also made to extend battery life: the HTC U11 delivers 3 more hours of video playback, 8 more hours of music playback, and 3.5 more hours for web browsing on an LTE network, compared to the previous generation.

\n

Engaging your sense of touch

\n

One of the things that sets the HTC U11 apart is its unique HTC Edge Sense technology, which shines the spotlight on a person’s sense of touch. It’s designed so with a simple squeeze, you can launch any app on your HTC device. You can also customize the squeeze gesture, so that Edge Sense opens the phone’s camera, an email application, or a game. It also enables Voice to Text technology: With a light squeeze, the HTC U11 will translate a spoken message into a text and send it. For more advanced capabilities, you can modify “short squeeze” and “squeeze and hold” settings to make the most of this new level of phone interaction.

\n

Audio features will have you all ears

\n

The HTC U11 is equipped with upgraded HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition speakers that deliver a broad Dynamic Range of audio and high volumes. The smartphone uses four omni-directional microphones that are optimally positioned. These mics work together to record audio from all directions to produce 3D audio clips.* And when the camera is set to Acoustic Focus, the microphones are designed to work with the camera to amplify the specific sounds surrounding the subject in focus.

\n

The device comes with the latest version of HTC USonic, which incorporates Qualcomm Aqstic active noise cancellation (ANC) technology. Qualcomm Aqstic ANC technology has a dedicated hardware block on the Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec that is engineered to process all the ANC algorithms so you don’t need additional batteries and components on the headset. The advanced headset is also engineered to map the inner ear with sonar-like technology and adapt the sound profile to the ear. Combined with Qualcomm Aqstic, the headset is designed to reduce distractions around you, continuously monitor the environment’s sound levels, and quickly adjust the audio for any new disturbances.

An award-winning camera, front to back

\n

Awarded the highest independent rating ever by DxOMark, the HTC U11’s camera, powered by Snapdragon 835, deserves high praise. It’s composed of a variety of advanced technologies typically found only in top DSLR cameras.

\n

A multi-axis optical stabilization system and lightning-fast autofocus capabilities are integrated into the distinguished photo-taking machine. This works to make sure the capture is quick, photos are crisp, and videos are smooth. New white balance, noise reduction, and detail preservation enhancements help you take sharper, more balanced photos.

\n

When recording video, the HTC U11’s camera uses Auto HDR Boost, a technology that takes multiple shots, and measures the darkest shadows and brightest highlights with minimal lag. Temporal Noise Reduction can then automatically compare information in the previous and following frames to remove unnecessary noise, so the focus is on your subject and not on any miscellaneous distractions.

\n

The device’s high-resolution 16MP front camera isn’t left out either. The camera uses the same HDR Boost and noise reduction technology as the 12MP main camera. And with its UltraPixel light sensitivity setting, it can take vivid selfies, day or night.

\n

Compatible companions

\n

HTC’s latest device has the perfect partners — three of them. The HTC U11 can work with three intelligent assistants — HTC Sense Companion, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa — personalizing your mobile experience.

\n

HTC Sense Companion is designed to familiarize itself with your daily patterns over time, taking note of when you’re running late for an appointment or when you need to recharge your phone. Keeping the HTC U11’s performance top of mind, the HTC Sense Companion can suggest clearing junk files and unused apps to free up space and gain faster speeds.

\n

With Google Assistant, this Android-powered phone puts the world’s answers in the palm of your hand. This personal assistant can help you find facts, manage your calendar, read texts, and control your home. The HTC U11 is also the first commercially available smartphone to feature hands-free wake word access to Amazon Alexa, and has over 12,000 skills from the Alexa store at its disposal.

\n

Stunning, inside and out

\n

A smartphone with impressive insides should have striking outsides to match. Under the HTC U11’s hood, the Snapdragon 835 has an Adreno 540 GPU integrated into its platform. The GPU is made to yield lifelike visuals, and an up-to 25 percent improvement in graphics rendering and 60X more display colors, compared to previous designs. Its 5.5-inch Quad HD, 3D glass screen can display these immersive visuals under any light, even harsh sunlight. And because it's water resistant, the HTC U11 can capture photos in the rain.

\n

HTC uses Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition to achieve the device’s liquid glass surface, a process that involves layering its back cover with highly-refractive precious minerals. This creates a brilliant effect and highlights the phone in Sapphire Blue, Amazing Silver, and Brilliant Black (in the U.S.). The HTC U11 also boasts a new, curved look that results in 3-axis symmetry, making it slim and comfortable to hold.

\n

The HTC U11 is now available for pre-order in the U.S.

Consumers expect excellent mobile experiences everywhere they go — at home, at work, while they commute. To expand the reach of premium Wi-Fi performance to more people, Qualcomm Technologies is bringing its high-performance integrated 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform. Until now this was only available in the Snapdragon 800 mobile platforms tier.

\n

Devices that support 2x2 Wi-Fi have two antennas instead of one. With double the antennas, Snapdragon 660 and 800-series mobile platforms with this technology are engineered to provide up to twice the user throughput and a significant improvement in coverage, which is especially useful in homes and offices with brick and concrete walls. This 2x2 Wi-Fi technology also supports MU-MIMO and is engineered to boost the performance of crowded networks by allowing multiple devices to be served simultaneously.

\n

\n

\n

Qualcomm Technologies worked with a leading Chinese OEM to test 2x2 Wi-Fi in a real-life scenario. For this reason, we set up a Wi-Fi network in a typical 100-square meter apartment in a busy, multi-story residential building in Shanghai, China. We found that devices with 2x2 Wi-Fi delivered double the throughput, eliminating dead spots in hard-to-reach areas of the apartment.

\n

In addition to 2x2 Wi-Fi, the Snapdragon 660 is designed to support a slew of advanced Wi-Fi features, including LTE/Wi-Fi antenna-sharing technology, which offers OEMs the option to offer 2x2 performance using only one antenna. As the name suggests, this features allows both LTE and Wi-Fi systems to intelligently share a single antenna. This can help them to create thinner phones or pack in more features with the space saved.

\n

The Snapdragon 660 mobile platform boasts Dual Band Simultaneous technology (DBS), which allows phones to use both 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz Wi-Fi bands simultaneously. This can lead to better performance and new use cases like using a smartphone as a Wi-Fi hub, and streaming internet content from your smartphone to a television and Wi-Fi enabled speakers. The 660 supports Bluetooth 5 as well, which can double the amount of data that devices can transfer compared to the previous generation.

\n

Tired of remembering multiple passwords? Ever wish you could unlock your devices, buy stuff online, and make payments, all without batting an eye? Now this is possible (literally) with smartphones based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform*. No longer a work of fiction, iris authentication offers a layer of security that’s both robust and convenient. It’s contact-less, stable, and is one of the most accurate biometrics out there.

\n

As user authentication mechanisms move away from what you know (passwords) to who you are (biometrics), it’s important to maintain the integrity of the iris authentication.

\n

Qualcomm Iris Authentication is a comprehensive solution that is designed to allow the capture, enrollment, and verification of an individual’s irises. The software has deep system optimizations on the Snapdragon 835 engineered to support cutting-edge performance. The captured iris image is converted into a template that’s unique to each iris and those templates are stored on the device in the Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment. When a user presents his/her iris for verification, a template is created and compared to the existing template, resulting in either a 'match' or 'no-match.' All of this processing happens in the Trusted Execution Environment to help ensure that your device is security-rich and resistant to malicious code.

\n

RGB preview

\n

Due to the nature of information that needs to be captured for iris authentication (the iris has 225 points of comparison), an infrared (IR) LED illuminates the iris while the IR camera captures the iris image. What’s displayed, however, is a color preview captured by a front-facing camera. It’s a far less spooky-looking image, allowing for a better user experience.

\n

Camera Security

\n

Our iris authentication solution uses the Snapdragon 835’s camera security framework. Camera security is engineered to help provide hardware-based authentication and prevent the iris image from being captured by malware. This means the malware cannot fake authentication and replay the captured image into the Trusted Execution Environment. Both the IR image capture and RGB preview take advantage of camera security capabilities; each time the user scans her iris to open the phone or pay for something, the path is then hardened, so it becomes increasingly difficult for the image to be captured and used for nefarious reasons.

\n

Authentication speed

\n

The iris authentication solution takes advantage of the Snapdragon 835’s processing power, which is engineered to deliver an unlock speed of <100ms. The solution makes quick work of the verification even if you’re wearing glasses, sunglasses, or even contact lenses. That’s because the iris authentication solution is capable of recognizing a variety of eyewear and extracting only the necessary information while ignoring the rest. And it’s designed to work well in indoor and outdoor environments so you can unlock your phone just as easily in bright and dark lighting conditions.

\n

Liveness detection

\n

All iris authentication systems are vulnerable to attack by spoofing. For example, hackers might present fake iris photographs or videos of an authorized user and attempt to gain access to a device. Qualcomm Technologies’ iris authentication solution is designed to help withstand such attacks through an anti-spoofing mechanism known as liveness detection. Liveness detection solutions work to ensure that the iris being presented to the device is that of an authorized (and living) user.

\n

Our iris authentication solution is built to facilitate mobile payments and financial transactions. Online banking apps, music purchase apps, peer-to-peer money transfer apps, and more can integrate with the Qualcomm Technologies solution, which is based on hardware and software security. Other applications, such as parental control, streaming, and VR, rely on non-obtrusive verification, or authentication that happens in the background.

\n

Qualcomm Iris Authentication offers an integrated solution that is engineered to be fast, security-rich, and easy to use. Now, superior accuracy and cutting-edge security are available in just the blink of an eye.
