HTC set to debut 'U11 Life' handset later this year

The new smartphone is a smaller version of the original HTC U11, which had a bigger 5.5-inch Full HD display compared to the U11 Life's 5.2-inch Full HD display. The Snapdragon 630 chipset will be powering the HTC U11 Life. This is of course a bit smaller than the HTC U11's 5.5-inch display, which also has a superior screen resolution of quad HD 1440p. The leaked image of the phone suggests that its frontside resembles with HTC U11 and HTC 10 from the previous year. Yup, the squeezable Edge Sense feature is tipped to expand from the standard, expensive U11 to this presumably affordable U11 Life variant. For those of you who don't know, these pair of earbuds connect via the USB Type C port and hence it looks like the HTC U11 Life will also skip the 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition, the rear side will feature a similar sized 16MP camera that's equipped with phase detection and auto-focus. Around a month, the rumor mill had revealed the leaked specifications of the HTC Ocean Life smartphone.

The SD660 and the SD630 were both first unveiled by Qualcomm back in May, so it really isn't all too surprising that the HTC U11 Life would arrive with either of those two. At this point in time, there is not a lot known about how much it will have, however, it looks like it will have 32GB of internal storage, which can also be further expanded up to 2TB via a MicroSD card. This means that the handset should survive being submerged up to 3.3 feet of static water for up to 30 mins.

While it will be a mid-range product, it will still feature luxuries like IP67 certification and will also come bundled with HTC's USonic earphones with active noise cancellation. Fresh information suggests that HTC will be releasing HTC Ocean Life smartphone before the end of this year.
