However, HTC has a few smartphones in the ‘U11’ moniker. The HTC U11, the U11+ and the U11 Life. With the HTC u12 expected to be launched soon, this mid-range smartphone could be a follow up to the HTC U11 Life. The HTC U11 Life runs on the Snapdragon 630 chipset and this mysterious smartphone could be a ‘Lite’ variant of it.
Apart from this, HTC could spring a surprise and launch a whole new series of mid-range devices especially after the relative success of the HTC U11 Life. The Android One variant of the U11 Life was well-received and this upcoming device could also be an Android One smartphone. Right now, this is just a listing on a benchmarking website and no other details are available.
More details will follow as and when more information about the device is leaked.
