Time for leaks: Here's the HTC U11 Life in Brilliant Black

Android One devices are somewhat having a renaissance right now, with multiple high-profile phone manufacturers either releasing or heavily-rumored to invest in Google's low cost program. Xiaomi was the most recent biggest phone maker to release an Android One device (the Mi A1), and if rumors are correct, HTC is about to do the same. In three days or so, the HTC U11 Life could become the newest member of the Android One initiative.

And guess what, a fresh new press render of the device in dazzling Brilliant Black has been unearthed by leakster Roland Quandt, giving us a full view of the phone from all three main angles. No signs of bezel-less design, dual cameras, or anything fancy at all, but then again, we expected nothing of the ilk in the first place. As far as credibility goes, this one looks like the real deal and it would be surprising if it ends up being an elaborate hoax. 

As far as specs go, we already heard that it will arrive with a Snapdragon 630, 3/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of native storage, a 5.2" 1080p Full HD display, 16MP cameras at the front and the back, a somewhat underwhelming 2,600mAh battery, Android 8.0 Oreo, IP67 water-resistance, and Edge Sense. Overall, a neat mid-range package that should cater to those looking for a pure Android experience on a budget. 

Yet, the rumored price tag of EUR 369 (~$429) for the 32GB version of the phone in Europe could mean that HTC's pricing is once again disconnected from reality.
