HTC U11 EYEs (Harmony) seemingly coming soon as a new, large mid-range phone


Back in 2014, HTC launched an interesting smartphone called Desire EYE, and it looks like the company is now ready to revive half of that name. According to ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), HTC plans to release a new handset called U11 EYEs.



 



Reportedly, the U11 EYEs is the unannounced device that was known until now as the HTC Ocean Harmony. Thus, this should be a mid-range smartphone with a 6-inch display, an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. 



 



The HTC Desire EYE (pictured above) was named like that mainly because it had a large 13 MP front camera resembling a cyclops' eye. While there are no images to show the U11 EYEs at this moment, we're thinking that the upcoming phone could feature a noticeable front-facing camera, too. However, the new handset will almost certainly not have the large bezels of the Desire EYE. In fact, from this point of view, the phone may resemble the recently released HTC U11+ (codenamed Ocean Master), which offers a 6-inch screen in a pretty compact body - thanks to its reduced bezel size.   



 



Not long ago, we heard that the Ocean Harmony / U11 EYEs could be officially announced in December. Well, let's wait and see if HTC will indeed unveil this new phone before the end of the year.

I swear, HTC is purposely trying to fail at this point.

HTC was the king of android in the early 2010s. How the mighty has fallen.

Whatever it is, it's probably going to be overpriced

Already dead htc shot himself in the head by removing 3.5mm so it could die quickly.

The eye was a pretty nice phone. Of they had gotten rid of the black HTC bar it would have been much more digestible
