July 24, 2017

Tomorrow, July 25, HTC USA will start taking pre-orders for an upgraded version of its U11 flagship smartphone. We’re talking about an HTC U11 with 128 GB of internal memory (instead of the 64 GB that the current, regular model is offering).

The HTC U11 128 GB will cost $729 unlocked – that’s $80 more than the 64 GB version. We assume that the new model will be available in all the color variants that the 64 GB one comes in, including blue, silver, black, and red. It doesn’t look like the HTC U11 128 GB will feature 6 GB of RAM in the US, so we’re expecting …

The Street was looking for a smaller 15% drop, which means that advertisers paid much less to advertise on Google than expected.
