HTC U11 Life Android One phone launched: Specs, price and more

HTC U11+ official

Even though Google recently purchased a billion dollars of personnel and intellectual property from HTC, the Taiwanese smartphone maker isn't dead yet.

The fingerprint sensor on this design moves to the back of the phone, making room for the larger 6-inch, 2880×1440 18:9 OLED display up front.

The U11 Life - which aims to be the HTC U11's almost identical, cheaper sibling - comes with free headphones in the box called HTC USonic. It will, however, be sold internationally at flagship prices.

'Super Mario Run' isn't as profitable as Nintendo would like
However, toward the end of past year , the company released its first mobile #game in the form of '#Super Mario Run. In Super Mario Odyssey Mario has to keep Princess Peach from Bowser's claws, who want to marry the princess.

Is the HTC U11 life one such phone? It's also quite lightweight at 188g and will be able to survive a dunk in the bath or a quick rainshower as it's IP68 water and dust resistant. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Inside it uses the Snapdragon 630 SoC from Qualcomm and it will be available in two different variants with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for one version or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for the other (both have a microSD card slot). It doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack, in case you were wondering. Not only do these buds have built-in noise canceling, which is a relief for city-dwellers like me trying to escape the ever-present sounds of traffic, subways, or construction, they totally eliminated the clicking and clacking I heard from my coworkers typing next to me in our office.

HTC's first U11 was a very good phone with a striking design, but many dismissed it with the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 and their bezel-less screens hitting the market.

The bottom has a USB-C port and speaker.

Far Cry 5's cooperative system detailed, only host keeps story progression
A hilarious new Far Cry 5 trailer showed off a different look at the highly anticipated new chapter to the franchise. As Andy told us back in May , co-operative play in Far Cry 5 will be available across the game's entire campaign.

HTC managed to trim down the bezels, however, so the dimensions make for a handset that is only marginally bigger; where it feels more noticeable is in thickness, where the few added millimeters are being used to fit a battery that's 31% larger, at 3930mAh.

As for the Life's photo prowess, it surprised me with pics that are definitely above average for something in this price range. What features are similar between the two phones?

The HTC U11 Plus may not be as incredible as the iPhone X, or the Galaxy Note 8, but it is, without a doubt, the best smartphone HTC could deliver. We do find the U11 life's camera to be nice, but it doesn't beat the U11. Both the smartphones also come equipped with the Edge Sense support which was introduced with the HTC U11. I just wish HTC had made room for a headphone jack. The HTC U11 Life will be available at T-Mobile starting November 3.

Nationals Hire Cubs Bench Coach Dave Martinez To Replace Dusty Baker
Martinez played 16 season as an outfielder in the majors, for the Cubs, Expos, Reds, Giants, White Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Braves.

The Taiwanese company also improved the Edge Sense software (this time on top of Android 8.0 Oreo) which takes advantage of the "squeezable", pressure sensitive sides.
