This one, however, is more of a mid-ranger with a focus on selfie photography. With a 12-megapixel UltraPixel 3 camera on the back and dual 5-megapixel cameras on the front, it should be a great companion for anyone who takes lots of photos.
The dual front cameras allow for portrait mode-style selfies with a bokeh effect that can be adjusted after the photo is captured. The camera on the back comes with electronic and optical image stabilization and UltraSpeed autofocus.
Just like the HTC U11+, the HTC U11 EYEs also has a 3,930mAh battery, a similar glossy design and IP67 certified water and dust resistance. HTC’s Edge Sense tech, which lets you launch certain features by squeezing your phone, is also on board.
The rest of the specs, however, are weaker than those of the flagship. The HTC U11 EYEs is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Its LCD screen sports a lower, 2,160×1,080 pixel resolution, and the speaker is mono instead of stereo. And forget about connecting your old wired headphones to it; there’s no headphone jack on this one.
On the software side, the HTC U11 EYEs is running on Android 7.1 and HTC Sense UI.
The HTC U11 EYEs will go on sale in China for roughly $465; there’s no word on availability in the western markets.
