The annual tech show CES 2018 has come to an end and smartphone makers are concentrating on the launch of their new devices in specific regions. Coincidentally, frequent tipster Evan Blass has leaked the existence of the device as well, claiming that it's called the HTC U11 EYEs. Back in 2014, HTC also launched a device under the "Eye" branding because of it had identical front and back cameras, as pointed out by Android Authority. It is believed that the device will come with a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18:9. A 3930mAh battery will likely provide the juice to sustain your daily activities, while 4GB of RAM will support it. It might come with the Snapdragon 660 chipset under the hood, with some claiming it could also sport 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
This new smartphone of HTC is having IP67 certification to be water and dust-resistant.
Unfortunately, the device is launching with Android Nougat, instead of Oreo, with an expected reveal date of January 15th. As part of the U11 line, it features a curving glass rear that comes in the bold colors of red, black, and a blue-ish silver.
The phone will feature dual-LED flash and fingerprint sensor. Reports suggest that the mid-range smartphone will be available initially in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan markets. It seems that the wait is over, however, with the phone set to be announced on January 15. However, there are no rumors about the camera of the phone. Additionally, a second variant is also expected to be launched at the event.
