HTC has announced new mid-range smartphone, HTC U11 life. It comes in two variants, one comes with Android One and the other comes with HTC sense UI. HTC sense UI version of HTC U11 will be available on in the USA but the rest of the world will get Android One version of HTC U11.
HTC U11 Life features 5.2inches Super LCD display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution. Powering this device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB ROM. Internal storage can be further expandable via MicroSD card.
Moving on to the camera, HTC U11 life has a 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection auto-focus and LED flash. For taking selfies, there is another 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. Rear camera can record video up to 4K resolution, but front camera can only record video up to 1080p.
On the software side, HTC sense version runs on Android 7.0 Nougat whereas Android One version will have Android Oreo OS right out of the box. The phone is backed up by 2600mAh battery and charges through USB Type-C port. Other features includes IP67 rating (water & dust resistance), Bluetooth 5.0, Dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC and 4G LTE connectivity. Sadly, there is no Headphone jack on HTC U11 Life but you do will get a headphone jack adapter in the box.
The HTC sense version of HTC U11 life is on sale in the US (T-mobile Exclusive) for $349 (~NPR 36,103). Regarding Android one version of HTC U11 life, there is no official statement about the pricing and availability. I did talk with one of the HTC Nepal official representatives about HTC U11 Life. And seems like, we might get Android One version of HTC U11 Life in the future.
