Google announced the final version of Android pie a few months ago but still many OEMs yet to roll out the latest update. HMD Global, Essential and OnePlus were amongst the first to start updating their phones with the latest flavor of Android OS. Later on, Huawei and Sony announced their flagships running on the Android Pie. Samsung and HTC are amongst those who yet to start updating their phones.
From the look of the things, HTC finally starts the rollout of latest Android flavor. However, instead of starting with the latest flagship, the company is updating last year's mid-ranger U11 Life. The U11 Life was announced back in 2017 with the Android Nougat 7.1.1, it was amongst the first to receive the Android Oreo update when it was announced. Its US variant comes with Sense UI whereas the global variant is an Android One phone. A number of HTC phones are eligible to receive the Android Pie update including U11, U11+, U12+, and U12 Life. However, it is still dark when the company will start the rollout for the aforementioned phones.
The U11 Life sports a 5.2-inches LCD display with Full HD screen resolution. The Qualcomm's Octa-core Snapdragon 630 chipset is powering the phone. The base variant has 3B RAM with 32GB storage whereas the top-tier model has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The rear camera snapper is 16MP with f/2.0 aperture whereas the selfie snapper is 16MP. The lights are kept on by a 2,600mAh battery cell. Despite being a mid-range phone it is an IP67 certified phone.
