Design and Display

This is a better choice than the HTC U11 when it comes to usage with a single hand. The smartphone’s dimensions are 149.1 x 72.9 x 8.1 millimetres. HTC U11 Life parades a glossy design. The body actually features acrylic glass. It’s safe to say it will attract fingerprints rather easily. It has an IP67 rating, meaning it is both dust and water resistant.

On the front, the HTC U11 Life packs a 5.2-inch Full HD display. You can expect great wide viewing angles from the Super LCD technology. There is an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass on top.


This mid-range smartphone packs a pair of 16MP sensors – one on the front and another at the back. Both cameras have an aperture size of f/2.0. Camera features include phase detection autofocus, LED flash and HDR. The main shooter records videos of up to 4K quality. You can also shoot Full HD (1080p) videos with the selfie snapper on the front of the HTC U11 Life.

Hardware and Software

In terms of processor, the HTC U11 Life loses the flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor of the U11. It packs an octa-core Snapdragon 630 chipset that runs at speeds up to 2.2 GHz instead. But with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM available, the phone should still be a solid performer.

There is 32 GB or 64 GB of storage onboard, depending on the model you buy. Storage is also expandable. HTC U11 Life boots latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. A version is part of the Android One range, which means less bloatware to deal with.

Other Features

The innovative Edge Sense technology by HTC is also available on this one. It enables you to do a variety of tasks by merely squeezing. You can use it to take selfies, launch Google Assistant or perform certain other functions.

The HTC U11 Life features an impressive array of connectivity features, including 4G LTE. You may find the battery a bit disappointing, though, with a capacity of 2,600 mAh.

Pricing and availability

HTC U11 Life is not yet officially available in Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya. We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria, Ghana, or Kenya. When available, HTC U11 Life Price in Nigeria is expected to range from 135,000 Naira to 195,000 Naira at launch.
