Mid-range HTC U11 (Ocean Life) in the works

Mid-range HTC U11 (Ocean Life) in the works

The HTC U11 has been getting a lot of attention since it made its debut in mid-May, but that doesn’t mean that HTC intends the U11 to meet the needs of every customer. According to @LlabTooFeR, HTC is working on a cheaper variant of the flagship U11 – dubbed the Ocean Life.

This may be the first time that we’re hearing about the HTC Ocean Life, but the rumor comes packed with a full spec list for the device. The phone is said to be powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and will have a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 16MP cameras on the front and back of the phone, a 2,600 mAh battery and Bluetooth 5.0. The HTC Ocean Life will also be equipped with a pressure-sensitive body to enable Edge Sense, USonic audio and will be running on Android 7.1.1 with HTC Sense 9.0.

The phone will likely have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but those detail were not mentioned in this leak. No information was given regarding the phone’s design, but we’re going to assume that it’ll look somewhat similar to the HTC U11. If the HTC Ocean Life sounds familiar, that’s because it’s just a rehash of the HTC U Play that was released back in January. The processor is different and the battery is slightly larger, but everything else on the phone is expected to be the same. We honestly don’t know anyone who purchased the HTC U Play, so we’re not sure if an updated model will be any more enticing than the original unless performance is above average and the price is below $450.
