Last year HTC extended their U11 lineup with the U11 Life and the U11+. New rumors suggest that HTC is all set to launch yet another mid-range phone in the form of U11 EYEs. The upcoming phone has been leaked by the revered Evleaks along with the specifications and the highlights.
The HTC U11 EYEs is codenamed Harmony and comes with a curving rear glass that will mostly be treated to shades of bold colors like red, black and silver with a tinge of blue. The U11 EYEs seems to take cues from the U11+, especially the rear-facing fingerprint sensor along with the placement of HTC logo. Despite the 6-inch Super LCD display the front bezels seem to be thinner and the corners are noticeably rounded off.

HTC usually brands the device with “Eye” if both the front and the rear camera setups are identical (e.g Desire Eye). Even the EYEs device seems to come with a dual lens front facing camera which will justify the Eye branding. The device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 652 SoC coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM. On the storage front, the HTC U11 EYEs will offer 64GB/128GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. The device is also rumored to come backed by a 3,930mAh battery and IP67 certification. Ah and before I forget, yes, the HTC U11 EYEs will feature the Edge Squeeze technology.
The only downside though is the possibility that the device will launch with Android Nougat as opposed to the latest Android Oreo. Evan Blass has also hinted that the HTC U11 EYEs will be priced at 3,299 Yuan ($510) and will be revealed on January 15th.
In the meanwhile, HTC has also shared a ‘save the date’ invite with January 15 as the date. The HTC U11 EYEs is also expected to come in two variants, one with Snapdragon 652 and the other with Snapdragon 660. HTC U11 EYEs is likely to be available first in Hing Kong, China, and Taiwan.
