HTC’s U11 EYEs has been announced in China and Taiwan. The device has a 6-inch massive FHD+ Display, 3,930 mAh battery and dual front-facing camera.
The phone is a midrange device but has some impressive camera features. The U11 EYEs houses a 12-UltraPixel rear sensor with f/1.7 aperture and dual-tone, dual-LED flash, as well as phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, and 4K video recording. Meanwhile, the front camera features a dual 5 MP + 5 MP camera setup with f/2.2 aperture and HDR. The phone is also supposed to have the bokeh effect with single camera at the back, just like the OnePlus 5T and Google Pixel 2.
The display on this device is a 6 inch Full-HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) Super LCD3 display with 18:9 aspect ratio, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It features a 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 652 chip, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage (expandable up to 2 TB via microSD).
HTC USonic headphones with active noise reduction are also included, as is HTC’s squeezable Edge Sense technology.
You can charge the massive 3930 mAh battery with ISB Tyoe-C commectivity. The fingerprint giver is a rear mounted one and the handset measures in at 157.9 x 74.99 x 8.5 mm, weighing 185 grams. Rounding off the core specs details is an IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, while the U11 EYEs is running Android Oreo out of the box.
This means that the phone has dual front-facing camera setup, large battery, noise-cancelling headphones and Edge Sense technology, making it a midrange phone that stands out from other devices.
The U11 EYEs will be available from Wednesday in China, coming in metallic blue, black and red, but it’s not known if it will make its way to the US later. It’s also not cheap, especially given the core specs, coming in at CNY 3,299, roughly US$512.
Will the U11 EYEs compete with the likes of OnePlus 5T and Honor 8 Pro? Let us know in the comments section below.
