It will be powered by a Snapdragon 652 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage with an option for microSD expansion.
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. Additionally, a second variant is also expected to be launched at the event. It should be noted that One M8 was HTC's one and only dual camera smartphone and it was launched back in 2014.
In a tweet sent out early this morning, Blass shared images of the upcoming smartphone, which he says is called the HTC U11 'EYEs.' Rumours of this device started to filter out late previous year when Blass and others reported that HTC was working on a smartphone codenamed "Ocean Harmony".
Today via its official Facebook page, HTC announced that its new smartphone U11 EYEs is all set to officially launch on January 15 in Taipei, Beijing, and Hong Kong. A fingerprint sensor will also be included.
So it is safe to say that the U11 EYEs is coming with dual cameras. Along with this, it is also expected that the device will come with IP67 rating which makes its dust and water resistant. Overall, the handset seems like a solid mid-range handset. However, it's still running the now outdated Android Nougat out of the box instead of the latest Oreo. 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. It is a selfie-centric mid-range smartphone and will go on sale in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan on January 17.
In a separate tweet, Blass said that that the HTC U11 EYEs will cost ￥3,299, which is roughly around US$510. There's no word yet if HTC plans on selling the device in other regions.
