HTC U11 EYEs specs and more press renders leak ahead of official announcement

HTC confirmed recently it will hold a press conference on January 15 where the company is supposed to unveil another mid-range Android smartphone, the long-rumored HTC U11 EYEs.

With probably less than a day left until the announcement, what appear to be official renders and information about the U11 EYEs leaked online. At first glance, these details match the previous reports about the upcoming device.

This means that the HTC U11 EYEs will indeed be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. On the back, the phone packs a 12-megapixel camera with Ultrapixel 3 technology, while in the front there's a dual-camera setup. 

Surprisingly, the phone is IP67 certified for dust and water resistance. Also, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is included as well, along with a large 5.99-inch display and massive 3,930 mAh battery.

The bad news is the phone won't come as cheap as we mentioned in our previous report, so instead of selling it for $400, it looks like HTC will offer the U11 EYEs for no less than $510.

A very good alternative to the already great HTC u11 Plus. BUT rumors suggest HTC will announce their true flagship in MWC which is the U12. So... this will be a busy year for HTC. Good luck!

No it won't. The company doesn't learn. The first HTC Eye DID HORRIBLE so will this. It's like they patented how to fail

Sony priced the XA2 just right.... HTC needs to learn from Sony. This should be no more than $450. Not even a SD660

What HTC should do in 2018... - 2 phones with the 845 ( one 5.3" 16:9 , another 6" 18:9 like huawei mate 10) - 2 device with the 640 (5" and 6" ) - 1 simple phone powered by 435 or 450

The HTC U12 needs to be the U11+ with: Wireless Charging SD845 OLED display if possible Front Firing Speakers like the Pixel 2 XL Headphone jack Not asking for much HTC

As if they faithfully follow the recipe book of failure. I don't get why market needs another phone just a little cheaper than flagship but with innards most budget midrange phones have . Do you live on Mars HTC? If so say hello to NASA.

It has the exact same main camera, battery, body as the u11+. It even has hdr on the screen. It's basically a detuned version. This is a worthy upper midranger

Camera is not exact the same it has aperture of F1.9 instead of F1.7 sitting in 11 so 11+ and almost 3 years old chip. Look no further Xiaomi Mi 6 with superior SD 835 chip at $150 cheaper.

Indeed, I was reading PA article which said f1.9. My mistake.
