The HTC U11 EYEs has dual front cameras, a massive battery and face unlock

The HTC U11 EYEs is the company’s first phone for 2018. 

Sporting dual front-facing 5MP f/2.2  cameras, the U11 EYEs combines three of the most popular features – HDR Boost, Bokeh Mode, Beauty Mode – to create “spectacular selfies”.

On the back is the 12MP UltraPixel 2 f/1.7 camera, which is the same module as that of the U11. It comes with UltraSpeed Autofocus, OIS, Pro mode with manual controls, 4K video recording and slow motion 1080p video capture at 120 fps. 

The U11 EYEs also comes with Face Unlock, which can be activated by squeezing the sides of the phone. This should be useful in situations when your hands are wet or while wearing gloves. It reportedly can differentiate between a real human face and those on a photo or video.

Other specs include a 6-inch Full HD+ (1,080 x 2,160 pixels) Super LCD 3 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, dual nano-SIM support, Edge Sense, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage space with microSD support up to 2TB, IP67 water/dust resistance, USB Type-C port, a rear fingerprint sensor, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3,930mAh battery which supports Quick Charge 3.0. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack though.

The U11 EYEs will come in three colors: red, silver and black. It will go on sale from tomorrow in Hong Kong and in China later this month for HK$3,898 (~S$660). There is no word on a global release.
