The annual tech show CES 2018 has come to an end and smartphone makers are concentrating on the launch of their new devices in specific regions. The company has teased the launch via a Weibo post saying to keep your eyes open and to save the date. 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. But thanks to famous tipster Evan Blass we know it is the HTC U11 EYEs. Rendered in black, silver and red, the Edge Sense-enabled handset clearly features two front-facing shooters, but alas, their megapixel counts remain under wraps. This new phone will feature a splendid 5.99-inch Full HD+ display that will also boast a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The photos he has leaked photos also reveal a dual selfie camera setup on the U11 EYEs. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, and a 3,930mAh battery. It should be noted that One M8 was HTC's one and only dual camera smartphone and it was launched back in 2014.
Design-wise, the U11 EYEs takes its lead from the U11+ - rather than the original U11 - with its rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner above the HTC logo and underneath the camera lens. The upcoming phone has been leaked by the revered Evleaks along with the specifications and the highlights. The phone's display also suggests a launch on January 15.
UK 'Keen On Joining Trans-Pacific Partnership'
The TPP pact is created to deepen economic ties between member nations, by slashing tariffs and fostering trade to boost growth. But President Trump withdrew the U.S. from TPP so the British government will have to negotiate separately.
The only legitimately unappetizing spec mentioned is Android Nougat, which HTC is likely launching it with to avoid being obligated to include Project Treble.
There is no word on the release outside Taiwan, China and Hong Kong at the moment, but I expect the phone to reach other Asian markets as well as Europe in the coming weeks.
