The HTC U11 Life will be HTC's first foray into Google's Android One program, and will follow in the footsteps of the recently released Mi A1 by offering mid-range specifications at a, hopefully, modest price point.

HTC has been in all the headlines of recent, with the company selling off a portion of its assets to Google for an estimated sum of US$1.1 Bn last month. That deal is just one in many between Google and HTC, though, as the company has handled the manufacturing of various Nexus devices in the past. The next device to stem from that partnership will be the HTC U11 Life, the first HTC device to be a part of Google's Android One program.

The Android One program is one dedicated to bringing cheap, cost-effective devices to developing markets, under the Google umbrella. Previously, Android One phones were limited to largely unknown brands but the recent collaboration with Xiaomi, which culminated in the Mi A1, may be a sign of changing times. The U11 Life will follow in the A1's footsteps by being another device to be manufactured by a large-scale OEM.

The U11 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 630, 16 MP rear camera, 16 MP selfie shooter, IP67 certification. Edge Sense, USonic, and an underwhelming 2600 mAh battery. It will run on the newly released Android Oreo, and will come in two variants: 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. 

Pricing details are unknown but we expect it to retail with a price tag in the US$300 region.
