For a month now, we know that HTC is working on a new mid-range smartphone, codenamed HTC Ocean Life. Today we learned that the phone will hit the market as HTC U11 Life. There is also a bad news – HTC has resigned Snapdragon 660 to another weaker unit.
Last month, @LlabTooFeR revealed that HTC is working on a new mid-range smartphone, codenamed HTC Ocean Life . Leakster has provided some details about the specifications of this device. Today another source has betrayed the full name of this device and has also confirmed most of the information about the implemented components. It is only a pity that one did not confirm – the central unit used. HTC Ocean Life will debut as the HTC U11 Life , a cheaper and less equipped version of the HTC U11. The Taiwanese have benefited from the push they adopted last year, only shortened it from Lifestyle to Life (which is better than the next Lite smartphone). In the following render we see how the HTC U11 Life will look:The source service confirms that the HTC U11 Life will come with a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, a 16 megapixel camera and a 16 megapixel selfie camera. The fingerprint reader will be placed in a frame below the display. For the user's files the manufacturer will allocate 32GB of memory, expandable (microSD to 2TB). It is worth adding that the smartphone will offer support for Edge Sense (active frame) and HTC USonic. The presence of this second solution gives us the assurance that there will be no jack on the board. The previous leak also speaks of a 2600 mAh battery. Components will be enclosed in (probably) a glass housing to be watertight ( IP67 ). Http://www.gsmmaniak.pl/711044/htc-u11-test/ Now is the time for bad news. The original U11 Life report said that the smartphone's heart would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. Now it is said to be a noticeably weaker Snapdragon 630 . Of course it could have been even worse (like the Snapdragon 400), but the appetite was much bigger. We are still not sure what amount of RAM will be decided by HTC, but 3GB is the most likely option. We still do not know when exactly will debut HTC U11 Life or how much will it cost. If I had to bet, I would aim for 1999 gold . The lower price would be a positive surprise and a higher nail to the coffin. Time will tell which option will choose HTC. Source: Android Authority
