The unannounced HTC U11 Life has leaked yet again, this time in a press render and with full specs. The smartphone is expected to arrive as HTC's very first Android One offering and it could make its debut as soon as November 2nd alongside the rumored HTC U11 Plus. HTC already sent out invitations for the upcoming event but unsurprisingly hasn't said what exactly does it plan to unveil. The design revealed in the press render seen above falls in line with recent leaks, as do the purported specifications that hint at a potent offering in the mid-range category.
According to the latest leak, the upcoming HTC U11 Life will feature a 5.2-inch display with a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and Gorilla Glass protection for scratch resistance. The smartphone will also come with a physical home button right below its display which will double as a fingerprint scanner. Under the hood, the device will reportedly pack an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM. Other purported specs include 32GB of native storage space, a microSD card slot, and 16-megapixel cameras on both the front and back. Earlier rumors also hinted at a variant with 4GB of RAM but the latest leak makes no mention of that possible model.
The purported HTC U11 Life will supposedly feature IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfers, and a 2,600mAh battery. On the software side of things, the HTC U11 Life will reportedly arrive as the very first Android One smartphone to launch with Android 8.0 Oreo on board and is said to continue the trend of removing the 3.5mm audio jack from the smartphone equation, but should come bundled with USB Type-C headphones with Active Noise Cancellation. Other previous rumors indicated that the smartphone might actually come in two storage configurations – 32GB and 64GB – albeit the latest leak only mentions the 32GB option. The HTC U11 Life is expected to cost roughly $472 and come in white and blue color options. It's currently unclear which markets is HTC planning to target with its upcoming mid-ranger.
