It was also speculated that the company would launch a cheaper version of its flagship smartphone U11 Plus sometime in January. The date mentioned on the invite coincides with the launch date of HTC U11 EYEs, whose launch was hinted at by a prominent tipster a while ago. This hasn't officially been confirmed yet, but it's a safe bet given the fact that HTC emphasized the word Eye in its Weibo post.
According to the information, the HTC U11 Eyes is a mid-range smartphone with a 6-inch display, battery capacity up to 3930 mAh, and a dual 12-megapixel main camera for shooting pictures and video.More news: Ryder Cup absence has 'fuelled the fire' for Casey

The HTC Desire Eye smartphone from 2014 featured a huge selfie camera. It will be IP67 rated for water and dust resistance. The upcoming phone has been leaked by the revered Evleaks along with the specifications and the highlights.
The images Blass had leaked reveal a dual-selfie-camera setup and an 18:9 aspect ratio display on the phone, which makes it the company's second to come with the trendy feature. From the leaked shots, we can see that the phone will sport a single camera on the back, with a fingerprint sensor dimple placed just below it. The processor that powers the phone is Snapdragon 652 octa-core. It will be offered with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which will be expandable via a microSD card. However, it's still running the now outdated Android Nougat out of the box instead of the latest Oreo. Rumor has it the HTC U11 EYEs will be available in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, initially.
