HTC is gearing up to launch the HTC U Life smartphone on November 2. Ahead of the launch, specifications of the upcoming device were accidental revealed by mobile carrier T-Mobile in a support page for the U11 Life. The listing (now removed) was first spotted by Android Police.
HTC U11 Life is said to have a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The smartphone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with HTC Sense. Just like HTC U11, the U11 Life could feature squeezable frames called Edge Sense. The smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot.
HTC U11 Life will come with IP67 rating, which makes the phone dust, splash and water resistant.
