HTC's rumoured U11 Life to get an Android One variant

HTC's rumoured U11 Life to get an Android One variant”

Google is now working on creating a number of new Android One smartphones with new partners.

However, HTC will first release the Ocean Life smartphone with HTC' Sense UI on top, and later on, an Android One edition will come out. The first device to debut under the Android One 2.0 platform is Xiaomi Mi A1 which is another Mi 5x with Android One branding and stock OS.

Now we have something that tells us about more devices in the Android One platform. The device will run stock Android with a handful of HTC customizations, including Edge Sense, Zoe and the HTC Camera app. Everyone expected that Google's Android One program is heading for its death, but recently, the search giant's partnership with Xiaomi for the Mi A1 gave rebirth to the program.

Another unknown is the price, but the HTC Android One could be priced competitively with the similarly-speced Moto X4 Android One, which will be around $400.

The "Ocean Life", aka the diminutive U11, is tipped to carry the HTC U11 Life marketing label, strutting its stuff in a leaked frontal render last month, with a second one today confirming its rather thick screen bezels and fingerprint scanner/physical home button combo.

If we were to take a wild guess regarding the launch date of the HTC U11 Life based on the latest visual leak, we'd say October 20. However, nothing else about this mystic HTC Android One phone has been revealed yet. If this happens, we may not see the HTC Sense branded variant of the HTC Ocean Life. The focus will be on security, simplicity, and fast updates - exactly what the budget and mid-range segments need the most right now.
