The HTC U11 EYEs has now been officially announced. The HTC U11 EYEs info is now listed on HTC Taiwan’s official website, including both the phone’s images and its official spec sheet.
As expected, the device is a mid-ranger, which resembles the company’s U11 Plus flagship quite a bit. Let’s see what it’s about
Design and display
The device is made out of metal and glass, it sports a single camera on the back, below a fingerprint scanner, and the company’s branding. The HTC U11 EYEs sports thin bezels. The device sports a 6-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) Super LCD 3 display, with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top of it.
The U11 EYEs sports a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, expandable up to 2TB. The device does not sport a separate microSD slot, its second SIM card slot doubles as a microSD card slot, so you’ll either be able to use two SIM cards at the same time, or a SIM card and a microSD card.
The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 652 64-bit processor, and a 3,930mAh non-removable battery. The phone does sport fast charging, you can still use Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
The phone also comes with IP67 certification, and Bluetooth 4.2 included, and the same can be said for NFC and HTC’s USonic active noise reduction.Well, we don’t know, what version of Android does this phone ship with. The device measures 157.9 x 74.99 x 8.5mm, while it weighs 185 grams.
A 12-megapixel UltraPixel 3 camera (f/1.7 aperture) is located on the back of this device, we’re looking at 1.4um pixel size here, and UltraSpeed autofocus.
This is a BSI sensor, and it does have OIS as well. This camera is capable of shooting fullHD slow motion video at 120FPS, while 4K video recording is also available, of course. Two 5-megapixel shooters (f/2.2 aperture, BSI sensor, wide-angle lens) are included on the front side of the device.
