HTC U11 doing better that previous HTC phones
HTC Vive finally on the Mac

Looks like HTC will be jumping on the 'take away the headphone jack' bandwagon on the HTC 11 after dropping it from HTC U Ultra.
According to LlabTooFer, the HTC 11 would not have the headphone jack, but will come with IP57 certification, which means it can be submerged up to 1 meter deep in water for 30 minutes and has limited dust protection. IP57 is less protection than the likes of the IP68 certified Samsung Galaxy S8 has, which is dust tight and can be submerged 1.5 meters, but it’s a lot better than nothing. The source also confirms that the HTC 11 will launch in both single and dual-SIM versions.
This isnt really surprising, especially with HTC already ditching the headphone jack on the HTC U Ultra, and the fact that the company has never fully embraced dust and water resistance on its phones. However, we will have to wait and see if this could affect sales of the phone. There are also rumors which talk about a a ‘Sense Touch’ feature, which could give it a pressure-sensitive frame that responds to being squeezed.
There is no news on further specs, price or availability yet, but we will inform you as soon as we get updated.
