HTC is bringing the key features of their flagship U11 smartphone to a lower price point with the HTC U11 Life launching in Australia exclusively through Vodafone.

Squeeze action, Noise Cancelling Earbuds, a great camera and water resistance are all features that will be available for just $599 outright through Vodafone.

Most importantly, the HTC U11 is the first phone in Australia (other than the Pixel) to have the pure Android Experience known as Android One.

This means the latest software is guaranteed for a couple of years along withe security updates.

16MP front and back cameras, low light performance, weather resistance with a gloss surface – it’s a great phone.

Vodafone will offer the device on all their Red Plans from $30 up and it’s available from March 14.
