HTC U11 EYEs has been unveiled today in Taiwan. It is the latest in the series of the U11 smartphones. The U11 EYEs is pegged to be a mid-range phone but is priced at a price way more than that.
The U11 EYEs features a design similar to the previous U11 devices except for the absence of the home button. Instead, the front is flush with a full-screen display. The fingerprint scanner sits on the glass back below the camera setup. The dual camera setup on the front sits right next to the earpiece on the top. The phone has a USB Type-C port flanked by the microphone and the speaker and no 3.5mm jack. It is available in three colors, Red, Silver, and Black.
