Official teaser confirms HTC U11 EYEs launch on January 15; expected features

There's a miniscule chance that the event is for something else, but considering information that suggests a mid-january release for the HTC U11 EYEs, it's nearly certain that the event will be an official announcement.

It will cost ¥3299 (about $510), according to the leaked information.

The U11 EYEs has a 6-inch screen with a 1080 x 2160 Super LCD3 display. It is available in the color variants red, black, and silver.

In an interview with Engadget last year, HTC President Chialin Chang had also said "We'll definitely be releasing a dual-camera phone next year, but we'll need to figure out how to make this feature stand out".

The Harmony will ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor and 4GB of RAM, which should give it the power it needs to handle most any task with a good amount of speed. It will most likely be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset. just like the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7.




He also hinted that device would launch with a price tag of CNY 3,299 (approx Rs 32,400).

Design-wise, the U11 EYEs takes its lead from the U11+ - rather than the original U11 - with its rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner above the HTC logo and underneath the camera lens.

So it is safe to say that the U11 EYEs is coming with dual cameras. IP67 water resistance and Edge Sense (read: squeezable frame) are also present. Overall, the handset seems like a solid mid-range handset.

Unfortunately, the device is launching with Android Nougat, instead of Oreo, with an expected reveal date of January 15th. It's possible that HTC chose to skip Android Oreo to avoid having the device be part of Google's Project Treble, as speculated by Android Police.
