The image also reveals that the new smartphone will not feature a home button.

In terms of optics, the U11 Plus may feature a single 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and a dual-LED flash. It’s expected to sport an 8MP front facing camera for selfies. Going by the listing, the smartphone could be 9.2mm thick and pack a 3930mAh battery. Other expected features are the EdgeSense, BoomSound support and IP68 water resistance.
HTC’s alleged mid-ranged smartphone, the U11 Life was also spotted on Geekbench. The listing reveals a Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 3GB RAM and Android 7.1.1 operating system on the smartphone. The U11 Life is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display and come with 16MP front camera along with dual rear cameras. The smartphone could be powered by a 2600mAh battery.
