HTC U11 Life hits Geekbench
The upcoming HTC U11 Life has been in the rumor mill for a while, and now its official launch is apparently just one week away. This mid-range sibling of the HTC U11 flagship seems to have been benchmarked last Friday on Geekbench, and this way some of its specs are now public. Obviously, HTC still has to confirm all these details.
The HTC U11 Life managed to score 858 Geekbench points for the single-core tests and reached a total of 4,136 points in the multi-core section. The benchmark page reveals a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz and 3 GB of memory. The unit that was benchmarked using Geekbench 4.1.3 had Android 7.1.1 Nougat onboard, so it is safe to assume that the HTC U11 Life will retail with this version out of the box and Android Oreo would become available as an update after a while.
Previous leaks mentioned that the HTC U11 Life has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and runs Android Oreo. However, those were only rumors that had no benchmark database entry to back them up. Other specs of this mid-range HTC phone revealed by previous rumors and leaks include a 5.2-inch display, 16 MP cameras on both sides, as well as a 2,600 mAh battery. Sadly, we also heard that HTC decided to drop the 3.5 mm audio jack when designing this handset.
In addition to the U11 Life, HTC is also expected to reveal the U11 Plus next week. This Android handset should hit the market as an improved version of the HTC U11 flagship, claim those familiar with the matter.
