A month after Xiaomi launched its first Android One phone Mi A1 in India, a report has it that HTC is gearing up to announce its first Android One handset, HTC U11 Life. We also saw a report last month that HTC could be working on Android One-powered variant of HTC U11 Life. It all comes in the wake of a tweet posted by a user who goes by the name LlabTooFeR, revealing key details such as specifications.
HTC U11 Life is expected to be released on November 11 alongside HTC U11 Plus, which is expected to be an incremental upgrade to its current flagship HTC U11 (Review). Interestingly, specifications of HTC U11 Life are similar to that of Moto X4, which has also been announced as Android One in the U.S. HTC U11 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
So, if the report turns out to be true, it will be the third Android One smartphone. Specs-wise, it’s said to come with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels stretched across a 5.2-inch screen, resulting in 424 PPI pixel density. It’s likely to come with two memory options: 3GB of RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage.
Powering HTC U11 Life will be supposedly Snapdragon 630 SoC. It’s the same chipset powering Moto X4. In terms of photography, HTC U11 Life is said to house a 16MP rear camera and a 16MP selfie camera. Both the existing Android One handsets feature a dual camera. Surprisingly, HTC hasn’t opted for a dual camera so far, and HTC U 11 Life is expected to be no different.
HTC U11 Life apparently goes to employ a 2,600mAh battery some features that we’ve already seen on HTC U11 such as IP67 certification, Edge Sense, and USonic.
