HTC U11 Life to be released by T-Mobile, Android Oreo on board

Expected to be announced on November 2, possibly alongside the high-end U11 Plus, the HTC U11 Life will be a mid-range smartphone that, according to rumors, should cost around $400.


The U11 Life - pictured above - may soon be available in the US via T-Mobile. This info comes from a person who appears to be a T-Mobile store manager. Apparently, the HTC U11 Life (in blue) is already shipping to T-Mobile stores, so a release could follow shortly after the phone's official announcement.


Running Android 8 Oreo, the HTC U11 Life will be dust- and water-resistant, sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p display. The handset will be powered by a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, further featuring Edge Sense, 16 MP cameras on the front and rear, 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, at least 32 GB of storage space, and a 2600 mAh battery. The new phone won't have a 3.5mm audio jack, but there should be a pair of USB-C HTC USonic headphones in the box.


Do you think you'll want to buy this upcoming HTC handset once it hits shelves in the US?

Why manufacturers are so stingy on battery size? Please throw a 4000mah battery in so it will be amazing!

Technically they aren't, and they have. That would be the upcoming HTC U11+ . Also the Blacberry Motion has a 4000mAh battery with the same processor.

The Motion come with the sd625. There are actually quite a few differences between the two. With graphics processing probably being the most noticeable improvement on the sd630 = up to 30% gain.

What I mean is they should've used 4000mah on both U11 and U11 Lite and that would make them awesome.

they simply can't do it. do you remember the note 7. the problem that made the battery catch on fire was : bigger battery in such a small area that it couldn't fit properly which cause the battery to short. if they put 4000mah battery in a 5.2 phone it won't fit or the phone will be 15mm thick which i guess is not a good idea ;)

right...because bigger battery equates to better. What about optimization? Ever thought about scare lithium resources in the world?

I wanted the HTC u11 plus to come to T-Mobile. Would have been my first HTC in years!!!!

I hope but doubt the U11+ will have an 18:9 1440p screen. That alongside Oreo would be grand.
