Android One and HTC Sense-powered HTC U11 life unveiled
The mid-range HTC U11 life may not be as exciting as the HTC U11+, but it’s likely the best mid-range device we’ve seen from HTC in years. As was expected, HTC has delivered an Android One version of the phone which will be made available globally and an HTC Sense variant which will be sold in the US and Canada.
No matter which market you’re in, the specs are the same. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 630 and the base model comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The Android One variant does have the option for 4GB of RAM which is paired with 64GB of storage, but that same option isn’t available for the HTC Sense model. Other specifications include 16MP cameras on the front and back with support for HTC’s HDR Boost mode which made its debut on the HTC U11. The phone also has a 5.2-inch 1080p Super LCD display that’s protected with Gorilla Glass, a 2,600 mAh battery, IP67 dust and water resistance, HTC’s USOnic headphones with active noise cancellation, Hi-Res Audio certification, Edge Sense, liquid surface glass design on the back that we’ve come to love on the HTC U11.
On their own, the specs of the HTC U11 life aren’t anything special. That is until you match them with the phone’s $349 price tag in the US ($449 in Canada). The phone will go on sale on November 3 in North America on HTC’s website and will also be available through T-Mobile. The HTC U11 life with Android One will carry a similar price in markets around the globe, but the exact release date of the phone as not been shared yet.
