According to a new tweet from @evleaks, HTC will announce its first phone of 2018 here very shortly, with launch expected to be January 15. Whether that launch includes the US, we have no idea and HTC hasn’t made a peep about its 2018 plans.
Shown off in the aforementioned tweet is the U11 EYEs, a mid-range smartphone with a 6″ FHD+ Super LCD3 display (1080 x 2160), Snapdragon 652 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, expandable storage support, USB Type-C, large 3,930mAh battery, IP67 rating, Edge Sense (squeezy sides), and Android “Nougat.”
Because January 15 is right around the corner, we should be seeing something from HTC pretty soon. Once that happens, we’ll be on it.
Again, though, for us in the US, I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see this for a bit.
Update: Apparently, the device’s name is U11 EYEs, not U11 EYE. Don’t ask me.
