HTC allegedly working on a mid-range U11 powered by the Snapdragon 660

HTC allegedly working on a mid-range U11 powered by the Snapdragon 660

The Ultra was known as the Ocean Note, the U Play was the Ocean Smart, while the U11 was known as simply Ocean or the Ocean Smart.

The leaker claims that the upcoming smartphone will sport a 5.2-inch display with Full HD resolution and will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset.

According to LlabTooFeR on Twitter, HTC is apparently working on a device codenamed "Ocean Life" that will bring a lot of what the HTC U11 offers but in a less expensive and smaller package. Given all other devices in the U line, we also expect it to be an S-LCD panel, but this is purely speculation on our part.




Interestingly enough, HTC also appears to have plans to extend the reach of its "Edge Sense" feature by including it on this device.

With this, it seems clear that HTC is really into the idea of a more tactile approach to using smartphones, and we'll most probably be seeing Edge Sense devices for a good while.

When it comes to software, the mid-range device should run Android 7.1.1 out of the box with HTC's Sense 9 overlay on top along with the Edge Sense that first appeared on the U11. On the camera front, there will be a 16-megapixel rear and front cameras. The flagship U11 has a more formidable 3,000 mAh battery. For the unintended, the Edge Sense feature basically allows users to interact with the edges of the smartphone. With this new smartphone seemingly being a mid-range device, it's very likely that it will be more affordable than the $649 HTC U11.
