Apart from the flagship U11+, HTC also recently announced its newest mid-range device, the U11 Life. It’s powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, and features the same sleek look of its more expensive sibling, thanks to that “liquid surface” design.
The U11 Life comes in 2 variants: One with HTC Sense UI on top of Android 7.1 Nougat, and an Android One variant, with stock Android 8.0 Oreo right out of the box.
Apart from that, the two variants share the same specs. A 5.2-inch FHD Super LCD screen, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for the North American version, and 4GB/64GB for other markets. The U11 Life packs a 2,600mAh battery
Moving on to Cameras, there’s a 16MP rear shooter with PDAF and is capable of 4K video recording. There’s also a 16MP selfie camera that can record 1080p videos.
Other features include USB Type-C connectivity, LTE Cat.11, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. It also has Edge Sense, which lets you squeeze the device to perform certain actions.
The Sense version of the HTC U11 Life retails for $349 in the US. Pricing and availability for the Android One version will vary for every other market.
