The HTC U11+ is a slightly updated version of HTC's existing U11 flagship. What's new? Well, it's a touch bigger, has a larger battery and the front-facing camera has half the resolution.

Beyond that, it's pretty much business as usual. The model seen here has a neat see-through glass back, giving a great glimpse at the wireless charging coil beneath. This won't be available in Europe at launch, but may be available in Asian markets.

In the UK, the U11+ will cost £699, and while there's no word yet on US or Australian availability, that price converts to about $930 and AU$1,210.

The U11 introduced the ability to perform actions by squeezing the phone. Now it can also bring up this handy app wheel to quickly select your favourite items.

I like these marks on screen that appear to show you how hard you're squeezing.

The display looked bright, bold and pin-sharp in my hands.
