HTC has recently launched their latest premium midrange smartphone, the HTC U11 Eyes. The phone is the follow up to the previous Desire Eye, which was heavily focused on the selfie camera. Just like its predecessor, the U11 Eyes too focuses on the selfie camera by offering a dual sensor set up, this time around. The selfie camera is great and all but what else does the phone offer for a tagged price of around $500. Well, let’s take a deeper look at the phone and find out for ourselves.
The HTC U11 Eyes packs a 6.0 inch Full HD (1080*2160) LCD3 display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a pixel density of 402PPI. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and is edged out by a 2.5D glass. The U11 Eyes comes encased in a unibody aluminum shell which not only looks good but also feels premium to the touch. Under the hood, the phone packs an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 processor along with the Adreno 510 GPU. The processor is backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The phone also supports dual-sim cards and is 4G capable. And all this goodness comes encased in a body that is IP67 rated for dust and water resistant.
In the camera side of things, the HTC U11 Eyes packs a f/1.7 12MP rear camera accompanied by a LED flash. The phone, at the front, packs a dual-camera set up made by two f/2.2 5MP lenses. Moving on, at the software front, the phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo with HTC’s own custom skin, Sense UI overlaid on top of it. The phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded into its back panel. Other sensors include an accelerometer, proximity, compass, and a gyroscope. And finally, powering the device all up is a 3930mAh non-user removable battery. This will be more than enough to get users through a day of heavy usage on a single charge without any issues.
