HTC U11+: Even more squeezed into a slimmer, stunning phone

Do you want to do more with your phone? Watch more videos, play more games, snap more photos, and share more of life’s experiences. For the person who always wants more, HTC has announced the launching of HTC U11+, squeezing even more screen and battery into a more slender device.
The HTC U11+ takes the popular HTC U11 and plus-sizes it with a 6-inch display, gigantic battery, and more in a stunning liquid surface body that is even slimmer than the HTC U11.
The HTC U11+ lets you enjoy more with:
l A bigger screen on a smaller device: A 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio will make the HTC U11+ your new favorite way to watch movies and play games — and it still fits comfortably in your hand.
l Do more of everything for longer: A 3,930mAh battery you can depend on will set your mind at ease as you do more of the things you love for longer.
l Edge Sense is better than ever: Using the HTC U11+ is a breeze with one hand, thanks to Edge Launcher, which lets you access notifications and all your apps with a single hand, and Edge Sense, which lets you squeeze to perform your most common useful actions.
l Pushing the boundaries of design: Elegant translucent glass back that provides a delightful, intimate look and feel.
l Amazing cameras, intelligent voice assistants, the loudest ever HTC BoomSound with 30 percent more volume, HTC USonic earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation, IP68 weather-resistant liquid surface design, and the latest Android Oreo experiences with Qualcomm power.
l The HTC U11+ comes equipped with an even better camera than the HTC U11, which was awarded a remarkable DxOMark Mobile score of 90 3. The new improvements in HTC U11+ will reward you with spectacular and crisp image quality.
l Full-sensor phase detection autofocus on the HTC U11+ is the same technology found in top DSLR cameras, while HDR Boost technology produces dynamic photographs without slowing down.
l The new 8MP front camera incorporates the same powerful HDR Boost and noise reduction technology as in the main camera. Take great selfies with precise details and vivid colors — even in low light. The HTC U11+ offers the same award-winning video quality as the HTC U11.
l UltraSpeed autofocus captures clear video during action moments, and Acoustic Focus with 360° audio recording creates playback that sounds like you never left.

Bahrain surges in 2018 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey

Bahrain has surpassed its previous ranking in the 2018 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey as the top destination in the Middle East region for individuals from across the world to resettle and enjoy an exceptional quality of life. Each year, the survey serves as a trusted assessment of expats’ experiences in relocation and career growth across the world. In the 2018 survey, Bahrain’s position improved to fifth position in the world for expat satisfaction, up from ninth in 2017.

The HSBC survey, conducted globally among 22,000 respondents, evaluates expat sentiment across three major components: Economics, experience and family. Bahrain’s standing improved markedly across each of these areas in the 2018 index, up by 12, five and four positions respectively, compared to 2017. The primary drivers of this performance include wage growth, opportunities for career progression, work-life balance, job security, access to quality child care and the welcoming social fabric of Bahrain.

Dr. Simon Galpin, managing director of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB), said: “We are consistently ranked as the top location in the MENA region to live, work and raise a family. From the exceptional primary and higher education available here, to the ways we are transforming public services, including housing and health care, Bahrain continues to represent a prime destination for expats to seamlessly integrate into our society and thrive.”

Bahrain is the only MENA nation in the 2018 HSBC survey rankings to have improved its position among the top 10 destinations considered. Other key indices, such as the 2018 InterNations Expat Survey, also rank Bahrain highly as a location for expats to settle and flourish. For the second year, Bahrain also achieved the No.1 global ranking in the InterNations survey, demonstrating high performance on factors such as “ease of settling in,” “feeling at home” and “digital life.” These factors indicate that Bahrain remains an open society in transition to capitalize on a transformative ecosystem in which the companies of the future can excel and grow.
