Too late, need a breakthrough in price, chain of country vide chain of outlets.
I was about to give order for Note 8, but IÂ’ll wait now for my favourite brand phone. Hopefully it will be better looking than crazy looking iPhone X.
Pre-Order U11, 23 Sep 2017Will be nice to pre-order a new Flagship before I even get my U11 back from repair in Houston.Word!
I'm glad to see that with the upcoming new flagship HTC seems to address few "flaws" of U11, like bezel thickness, a bit small display (for today standard!) & IP certification that will be now IP68. That's all good news.
Still a huge question mark persist about my main concern - aka the real reason why I (and many, many others) didnt' buy a U11: the battery capacity. I really found a shame that a flagship of U11's level is limited by such a tiny battery.
This a very sensible topic, more so considering that the removable-battery option it's a thing of the past - regrettably. Sure, we all know that this year all the major brands tease the consumer, providing ridiculous batteries versus powerful hardware and huge displays...for such exact reason I think that HTC has now a real chance to stand out in a positive manner, making it even more clear to potential buyers that the brand is really going the right way, now.
So, long story short, HOW much bigger will be the battery on U11+? To me (and many, for what I know reading forum, social,etc.) the sweet spot will be 4.000 mAh: that's plenty of power without making the device too bulky or too weighty. I really hope HTC is hearing (and LISTENING)!!!
Most buyers will probably disable the squeezing sensor thingy as this gave us consumers an impression that we are NOT gonna squeeze our phones.
Will be nice to pre-order a new Flagship before I even get my U11 back from repair in Houston.

No availability as per usual with HTC that's where they go wrong in business
Rafe Firmani, 22 Sep 2017Still care about 3.5mm jack on htc?
Move on dude!No removable battery = crap phone = deal breaker.
No 3.5mm jack = crap phone = deal breaker.
Glass back, curved edges, wrong screen aspect ratio, ... = crap phone = deal breaker.
.alpha, 22 Sep 2017HTC will cease doing business by November.And how is that, Merlin?
You must have supernatural eyes
But I think HTC will be doing super fine after Google intervenes
A bezel-less design on an HTC smartphone would be lovely (I guess at this rate even Sony will have a bezel-less phone soon). A return of the 3.5 mm headphone jack on HTC flagships would also be lovely.
AnonD-670091, 22 Sep 2017HTC U11 is among the most expensive phone in EU, still going for 725-750 euro,and was launched... moreyou can get it on ebay,from Ireland for 550Euro,incl.delivery for EU..6/128gb version.

The only thing needs to be addressed design wise is the front bezel
But never make it edge like samsung.
All others like LG, Apple, XiaoMi, Huawei make bezelles FLAT screen
The 0 bezel on the sides of samsung phones make them even narrower...
Look at Note8, it's so ugly like remote control lol.
I just don't undestand the use of edge screen: it makes distortion when watching video,
makes you accidentally touch the screen, and pain in the *ss looking for casing lol.
Back to colors option, I had black and blue u11
Now I'm using solar red and happy with it
