But definitely, it won't a smartphone that will not grab the attention of the consumers. Under the hood, it will employ Qualcomm's recent Snapdragon 660 processor.
The famous HTC tipster LlabTooFer on Twitter has shared that HTC is working on a new mid-tyre smartphone which will be added to the U series. There's no word about the RAM and storage options, but if we were to guess, it's highly likely that it will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Along with that, HTC isn't skimping in the camera department with 16MP sensors on the front and back. And it remains to be one of the subjects for further revelation.
In terms of hardware, this HTC Ocean Life isn't going to wow anyway. One needs to Lightly squeeze, speak your message and send your texts on the go.
The Mini version of the U11 will sport mid-range specifications but will retain big brother's "Edge Sense" feature. HTC's newly leaked device will come with HTC USonic technology as well which makes it very much possible that the device won't be having a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Ocean Life is also said to feature Android 7.1.1 out of the box with HTC's Sense 9 interface on top.
This Edge Sense feature allows users to execute a number of functions by simply pressing the edges of the phone, but according to the latest reports, this feature will not be exclusive to the flagship HTC U11.
