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. However it could be because these companies are looking to host their own event, possibly to avoid getting swept up in the craziness that was CES.
Looks like HTC is all set to launch a new 18:9-display dual-selfie-camera smartphone in China on January 15. 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. As far as other details are concerned, the smartphone's entire specs sheet was leaked online a couple of months ago. Under-the-hood, the U11 EYEs will be powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 652 octa-core chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM.
While the invite doesn't specifically mention that the HTC U11 EYEs will be launched, the accompanying post mentions "eye", which pretty much confirms that it will debut at the 15th January event. Thanks to the fingerprint sensor on the back, the top and bottom bezels are now thinner.
The leaked images have revealed that the device will come with a dual camera setup at the front and a single camera with a dual LED flash at the back.
There are rumored to be two different HTC U11 EYEs models announced at the HTC event, with the second more premium model running a QualcommSnapdragon 660 processor, which is a notable improvement over the base model's 652. The device is fuelled by a 3,930mAh battery.
The HTC U11 EYEs will likely cost around $400 in Hong Kong.
According to Mr. Blass, the U11 EYEs will launch with Android Nougat and support HTC's Edge Sense, a customizeable feature that launches apps and actions when you squeeze the phone's sides.
