HTC U11 Life price and release date

The HTC U11 Plus, the company's just-announced Snapdragon 835 flagship phone, will not make it to the United States, but HTC has something in a different class that looks very appealing as well and is actually coming to the US: the HTC U11 Life, a new mid-range contender.

The HTC U11 Life features Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant support and comes with HTC Sense on top of Android 7.1 Nougat, but an update to Android 8 Oreo is promised to come within 30 days. With the battery-savvy Snapdragon 630 system chip on board, this new mid-range phone is also expected to last longer than your usual smartphone.

So how much do you need to pay and when can you get it?

The HTC U11 Life price is set at $350 for the unlocked phone that will work with T-Mobile and AT&T. You will be able to buy the phone via HTC's official website in the US, and T-Mobile will have the phone starting tomorrow, November 3rd. The phone will also be sold in Canada for $450 CAD. It will be available in the gorgeous looking Sapphire Blue.

Interestingly, outside the US, the U11 Life will be sold in a slightly different flavor: it will be an Android One phone and will run stock Android, not the HTC Sense-infused version of it.
