HTC U11 EYEs to be announced on January 15, here is what it looks like

The HTC U11 EYEs, also known as HTC Harmony, is supposed to be revealed next week. We reported earlier this month that a mid-range smartphone with that might go official very soon.

Well, it looks like the Chinese media has already received invitations to an HTC event, which mention the word “Eye.” The announcement is scheduled for January 15, while rumors claim the HTC U11 EYEs will go on sale in three Asian countries – China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, on January 17.

Specs-wise, HTC U11 EYEs is a mid-range device equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB expandable storage. Also, the phone comes with a larger 5.99-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a larger 3,930 mAh battery.

Little is known about the single camera on the back, but the phone will feature dual-LED flash and fingerprint sensor. A second HTC U11 EYEs model is expected to be introduced at the event, which will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, but both versions will run Android Nougat out of the box.

The U11 EYEs is said to cost around $400 in Hong Kong and it's yet unclear if HTC will make it available in other regions later on.

Interesting to say the least but again, are they even gonna sell this phone globally or is just available through pictures in FB and Instagram?

Snapdragon 652 is an outdated SOC,they should use at least Snapdragon 660,it has better performance and less power-consuming.

They kinda dropped the ball with the battery life in the U11+ so I expect the large battery to make the engineers at HTC lazy with optimizations. U11 appeared to be really good with only 3000mAh, while U11+ was better but lackluster considering its battery size. Get a Sony mid-ranger or compact series if you want record breaking battery life

huh? Your comment makes zero sense...the U11 has great battery life with 3000mAh, and U11+ even you said "was better", so HTC dropped the ball?? lol...

They should wait for 640 instead of a much older 652.
