HTC is all set to launch a new handset called the U11 Life on November 2 and follow that up with a device dubbed the U11 Plus. The former has now gotten leaked in full thanks to a now-deleted support page for the handset on carrier T-Mobile’s website.
Rumors in the past have suggested that the U11 Life will be an Android One phone, but T-Mobile’s listing doesn’t have any mention of that. Instead, the phone appears to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Sense UI on top. There’s a chance this is just one variant of the handset and there could be another running pure Android.
Motorola adopted a similar strategy with the Moto X4, so anything’s possible. Based on the schematic of the HTC phone, there doesn’t appear to be a headphone jack present. Buyers will just have to make do with the bundled USB Type-C USonic earphones. They won’t be able to simultaneously charge and listen to music since there’s no support for wireless charging.
