HTC U11 India launch set for June 16


HTC has begun sending out invites for the launch of the U11 in India, just under a week after it listed the handset on its local website. The smartphone is set to hit the country on June 16 at an event in New Delhi.

HTC hasn’t disclosed the Indian price or availability details of the U11 yet. The smartphone is being sold at $649 in the US which translates to roughly Rs 41720 in India. That particular figure is for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM variant. There’s also a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM model, but that’s only going to be sold in select markets.

India might just turn out to be one of those markets since a recent leak alleged that it would be one of 9 nations to get the 6GB/128GB U11. Adding an extra layer of authenticity to the claim is the fact that both versions have been listed on the device’s official India page.
