Back in 2014, HTC launched an interesting smartphone called
Desire EYE, and it looks like the company is now ready to revive half of that
name. According to ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), HTC plans to
release a new handset called U11 EYEs.
Reportedly, the U11 EYEs is the unannounced device that was
known until now as the HTC Ocean Harmony. Thus, this should be a mid-range
smartphone with a 6-inch display, an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, and 4
GB of RAM.
The HTC Desire EYE (pictured above) was named like that
mainly because it had a large 13 MP front camera resembling a cyclops’ eye. While
there are no images to show the U11 EYEs at this moment, we’re thinking that
the upcoming phone could feature a noticeable front-facing camera, too.
However, the new handset will almost certainly not have the large bezels of the
Desire EYE. In fact, from this point of view, the phone may resemble the recently
released HTC U11+ (codenamed Ocean Master), which offers a 6-inch screen in a
pretty compact body – thanks to its reduced bezel size.
Not long ago, we heard that the Ocean Harmony / U11 EYEs
could be officially announced in December. Well, let’s wait and see if HTC will
indeed unveil this new phone before the end of the year.
