T-Mobile inadvertently lists all HTC U11 Life's specs before launch
HTC is expected to announce not one, but two Android smartphones on November 2. The U11+ flagship is likely to pack similar specs as the HTC U11, but a better battery and larger display.
A second mid-range smartphone, the HTC U11 Life is likely to be unveiled too. We've been reporting on this particular handset before, but we've never had a source as official as this one until now.
It appears that T-Mobile inadvertently listed all HTC U11 Life's specs a few days before the official announcement. The phone's support page has been pulled in the meantime, but a mirror link is still available for your viewing pleasure.
The first thing that we've noticed is T-Mobile's mention of Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Edge Sense instead of Oreo. Aside from that, it appears that the listing comes in line with our previous report. So, expect the HTC U11 Life to pack an octa-core Snapdragon 630 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.
The phone sports a 5.2-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. A fingerprint sensor will be included under the home button, along with a secondary 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front side.
HTC has decided to go with a rather smaller 2,600 mAh battery inside, but since this isn't a flagship smartphone it might be enough to provide a decent usage time. T-Mobile says the battery should offer 13-17 hours of usage time or up to 672 hours of standby.
The U11 Life ditches the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of the USB Type-C port. Other highlights of the phone include IP67 certification, LTE and VoLTE support, as well as NFC (Near Field Communications).
Although there's no mention of the price, rumor has it HTC U11 Life will cost around $400 outright. We're expecting the phone to hit the shelves before the holiday season.
