HTC U11

Recommended Posts

So is the sku of the HTC u11 the same for the Sprint/unlocked variants? Is it simply a firmware limit not hardware? I want the solar red for a line on my account. But unsure if it will be compatible with out flashing it first. Best case scenario.

The hardware is the same but the sprint model has different software.  The only issue I see is that the unlocked version may not work on sprints network because the esn/imei isn't in their database and will not activate.  So flashing the sprint official software probably won't make any difference.

What I wanna know is what benefit was there for Sprint being the Exclusive carrier partner for the U11 if we end up getting screwed out of all the best colorways for the phone?? Can't get Solar Red or Amazing Silver.

Well for one, you could potentially get a much better deal going through sprint.  Also, if there is any issues with your device you could probably get a much faster turnaround time dealing with sprint compared to other third party retailers or even with htc.

Under certain circumstances you can get a better deal. But new customers have to pay $29/month for the U11 or $696 full price, which is actually more than what it costs to get it directly from HTC. I guess there is some work done behind the scenes to make this Sprint's first Gigabit LTE device and add HPUE support, so maybe it's not just a regular ol HTC U11 from HTC.com. 

 

That's the only reason I can come up with for why they seem to take longer to add a color to Sprint's lineup.

Ordering from sprint gives you 2 color options but a higher price. From HTC you get 1 color option (if you choose the sprint option) and a lower price. It's weird.

But it is just a regular ol HTC U11 from HTC.com. Unlike Sprint's HTC 10, U11 has the same MID for both Sprint and US Unlocked.

So wait, buying the U11 unlocked from HTC.com will actually work just fine on Sprint then?

NO!!!!

 

Hardware is exactly the same but it won't activate on sprint network, the esn/imei won't be whitelisted.

Aside from the IMEI issue, the firmware is obviously also different. There is no U11 support from SunShine (yet?), so no easily accessible way to get S-Off and change CID / firmware.

When did you do this testing in KC? LTE roaming on USCC has not been available all that long.

 

We are talking about LTE roaming and not EVDO roaming right?

It is lte roaming from uscc(I checked it with signal check/engineering screen, I just moved back from kc three months ago.

Would very much appreciate it if somebody could pull the UE EUTRA capability message with Network Signal Guru (root required) and post all the carrier aggregation band combinations.

Aand that's not even with the new TD configuration. That's insane.

4x4 MIMO or 256QAM possibly?

Supports 3x CA, 256QAM and 4x4 MIMO on B41.

At least 4×4, there's just no other scenario I can think of that would give me these speeds. I suspect the U 11 came with it already enabled out of the box, but I can't say for sure.

It doesn't necessarily mean the site has it live, also 3XCA alone on B41 is capable of over 200mbs, its just very rare considering the circumstances have to be near perfect.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      I see both Verizon and AT&T are getting this.  Has anyone heard rumblings for a Sprinter variant?  I was hoping since they at least have a CDMA version that Sprint would be able to get their bands on it also.

      So the official complete render as per ev leaks has been leaked http://androidandme.com/2014/05/news/htc-m8-prime-m8-ace-image-leaks-show-backsides-of-unannounced-phones/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=htc-m8-prime-m8-ace-image-leaks-show-backsides-of-unannounced-phones
      Looks not like what I anticipated I really hope that is an early design and color scheme.
       
       
      Copy and pasted from androidcentral.com
      These leaks come courtesy of none other than @evleaks, and considering that the came out in a spat with Jeff Gordon (HTC's Senior Global Online Communications Manager, not the race car driver), they should be taken with a bit of a skeptical eye. It's also worth considering that, like the Galaxy S5 Prime, we don't expect that any One M8 Prime device would be a replacement for the One M8. Think of it more as a next generation HTC One Max. So on to the leaks:
      Quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
      3GB RAM
      5.5" 1440x2560 QHD display
      Cat. 6 LTE
      Waterproof design
      Those specs, while open to change, would be in line with what we might expect from a phone like this, and they line up with an earlier leak out of China. There's one more leak, and this one we're strapping on our skeptic helmets: it's made out of "a composite of aluminum and liquid silicone."http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-one-m8-prime-rumored-exotic-material-composition-faster-lte

      Pretty sure this is an April Fool's joke, but if not, it's amazingly ridiculous. Good for a few chuckles.
