HTC U11 Life: News and Rumors

HTC U11 Life: News and Rumors

The phone's codename has been dubbed "Ocean Life" internally and will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display. However, there are no further details regarding the smartphone's launch date and price, but the new handset is expected to be cheaper compared to HTC U11's price tag.

HTC has won plenty of new fans with the HTC U11, a very capable camera phone with the unusual squeezable Edge Sense feature to really make the phone fun to use. The most important feature that the new U11 Life will retain from its flagship sibling is Edge Sense, which will add a unique element to the feature-set of the phone and set it apart from the competition. But there will be no notable differences between the two processors in terms of performance.

XDA-Developers discovered that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T had been programmed to cheat in benchmark apps in order to maximize their scores. With a changed name and an overhauled list of specs, we expect that the phone will create a lasting mark across global markets.

On the front, the phone will feature thick bezels on the top and bottom, which do not conform to the flagships standard set by so many phones this year. The U11 Life will also come with the U-Sonic earphones, which passed with flying colours in our review. But the smartphone will be reportedly sold via T-Mobile (in the US) as well as the company's official website (unlocked). And that is the exact reason why Sony's compact flagship variants are always a popular subject in several tech communities. Considering the overall feature-set and design language, it will be no less than what the original U11 was, albeit at a more affordable package. The latter matches the U11, and the rear camera should benefit from phase detection autofocus. The smartphone is fuelled by 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery unit with Quick Charge 3.0.
