HTC is expected to unveil two new smartphone soon and US-based telecom operator, T-Mobile may have accidently given us a glimpse as to what we can expect from one of the two devices. The specifications of the HTC U11 Life were spotted on the operator's support pages before it was taken down, but not before the webpage was saved. The user guide can also be downloaded by clicking here. It should be noted that the price and availability of the device is not yet known.
The page reveals that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 with 3GB of RAM. For storage, the phone is tipped to offer 32GB of internal storage space, and give the user the option to expand storage by up to 2TB. The phone is equipped with a 2600mAh battery it is claimed to offer 13 to 17 hours of usage time. The HTC U11 Life is also listed has having 16MP cameras on front and back. It is tipped to run Android Nougat v7.1.1 out-of-the-box with HTC’s Sense UI.
Like the company’s current flagship, the HTC U11, the upcoming phone is also said to come with Edge Sense. This would let users open apps or access other features by squeezing the phone. The HTC U11 is also expected to offer Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Other features of the phone includes IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. Further, HTC is also expected to bundle its USonic earbuds with the phone.
Besides the U11 Life, HTC is expected to unveil the U11 Plus smartphone on November 2. The device was spotted on Chinese certification website, TENAA and is expected to sport a bezel-less design with a 6-inch WQHD+ IPS LCD display. It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset and be equipped with a 12MP rear camera with a f/1.7 aperture lens.
Evan Blass, aka @evleaks recently tweeted that the phone would be available in black, silver, translucent colour options. The translucent option suggests that the phone may feature a semi-transparent back. This makes sense considering the fact that in one of the teaser images shared by HTC, the phone sports a semi-transparent back in which one can see what appears to be the inductive charging coil.
