However, there are no rumors about the camera of the phone. 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.

What do you think of the U11 EYEs name? The chipset present in HTC U11 EYEs is an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 mobile platform which is a dated one. It was also speculated that the company would launch a cheaper version of its flagship smartphone U11 Plus sometime in January. It seems that the company has pushed the launch of the phone to the start of the year as it has officially confirmed that the U11 EYEs will be unveiled on 15 January in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

However, the phone is said to come in another variant which will be powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage.

Like the other HTC U series phones from the company, the U11 EYEs will be lacking a 3.5mm audio jack. They also show slim bezels all around and a fingerprint scanner on the back. It further packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory and there is a microSD slot for expansion, although the limit is yet unknown. This is also why the display is taller and is sporting the 18:9 aspect ratio.

The phone will be water and dust tight (IP67) and will have a single USB-C port. The device is speculated to be backed up a large 3,930mAh battery for keeping the lights on.

Sadly, despite it being 2018, the U11 EYEs will be launched running Android Nougat rather than Android Oreo.

According to notable leaker Evan Blass, the U11 EYEs, code-named Harmony, is the spiritual successor to 2014's Desire Eye which featured dual front-facing cameras.
