Mid-range HTC U11

We’ve been watching the HTC U11 since it was officially announced last May. We got our hands on one and we were delighted when it was named as a new winner on DxOMark. We’re still waiting for its 6GB RAM and 128GB version as rumored to be arriving in nine countries. The phone didn’t do well in a series of durability tests but sales are still doing good according to a company executive.

The phone is also being compared to a number of other mobile devices. Most recent was with the new OnePlus 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 in a Speed Test. A teardown analysis showed off pressure sensors and water-resistance. And good news for HTC fans, the Solar Red HTC U11 is now up for pre-order in the US.

While waiting for the new Edge Sense functions on the phone, you may also start anticipating for a mid-range variant. Nothing is certain yet but Twitter tipster LlabTooFeR shared some information about a new midrange device called as the Ocean Life.

The mid-range smartphone is listed with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 5.2-inch screen with 1080p display resolution, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, 16MP selfie shooter, 16MP rear camera, and a 2600mAh battery. This mystery phone already runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out of the box if and when it is released. A follow-up tweet was also posted, saying the phone will also come with the Edge Sense feature, HTC USonic, and Sense 9.0 UI.
