HTC has just gone live with Australian pre-orders for its U11 flagship smartphone on its website at a price of AU$999 as announced late last week.

With no exact launch date yet announced for the U11, HTC’s page lists “June 2017” as the shipping date.

It also looks like direct sales of the phone in Australia will be limited to Silver and Black colours as they’re the only options available on the page. We hope to see some other colours end up on carriers, but with carrier deals yet to be announced for the U11 that’s just speculation.

If you want to buy a HTC U11 outright and be one of the first in the country to own one, head over to HTC’s Australian U11 pre-order page and you can get in on the action.

Will you be pre-ordering a U11 from HTC, or are you waiting for carrier deals? Tell us in the comments.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Frankly a much more interesting prospect than the U ultra. But most people seem uninterested now that the damage has been done. HTC are forever shooting themselves in the foot.

I agree to a certain degree, I’m currently using a htc10 and it’s probably the best smartphone I’ve used, it’s music playback from it’s headphone jack is wonderful, and everything else is more than adequate in the camera etc ,however I’m sort of gutted that htc has removed it with it’s successor the U11, here’s​ hoping the USB-C to headphone jack has a dedicated Dac and amplifier. Htc has one main problem and that’s in it’s marketing in Australia, it’s pretty much non existent, I’ve never seen a advertisement for the company, on television or billboards etc, on social media… Read more »
