The mobile device is anticipated to go on sale in the United States through T-Mobile, and an unlocked basis directly via the tech giant's official website.

A report from Android Authority claims that HTC is planning to unveil a mid range smartphone by the name of HTC U11 Life before the end of 2017.

Alas, there are no words on actual pricing or a release date, and the previously rumored Snapdragon 660 processor is replaced with a slightly humbler-sounding SD630 silicon in the latest piece of gossip based on credible inside information. It's actually the mid-range 5.2-incher known by the "Ocean Life" codename last month, which can best be described as a diminutive version of the 5.5-inch HTC U11 with watered-down specs.

HTC has so far released smartphones like HTC U Ultra, U Play, X10 and U11 flagship in this year. The phone will feature at least 32GB of internal storage with expandability of up to 2TB via microSD card. The 3.5mm headphone jack feature will indicate that the regular variant would utilize the tech company's USonic Type-C USB headphones, which will allow the smartphone to tune the audio experience to the user's ear canal.

The HTC U11 is another member to the HTC U family.

Gross margin fell to 13.7 percent from 16.3 percent in the first quarter, but it was still an improvement from 11.4 percent a year earlier, the company said.

HTC has won plenty of new fans with the HTC U11, a very capable camera phone with the unusual squeezable Edge Sense feature to really make the phone fun to use. The list of specs and features also includes a 5.2-inch full HD display and a fingerprint reader mounted on the front.

HTC U11 as well. Both front and rear cameras will be rated at 16MP, and it'll feature the squeezy Edge Sense surround. The battery may be a little small at 2,600mAh.
