HTC U11 Life to cost 369, launch on Oreo

Earlier this month we heard that the HTC U11 Life will cost around 400 and now a new rumor narrows down the price range and offers a few additional tidbits.

A new image of the device shows off the Brilliant Black color option, which shows a bit of a greenish tint, similar to the bigger U11. The other two color choices are Sapphire Blue and Ice White.

Now the price – 369 for the model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. There will be a 4GB/64GB option available in some regions presumably at a premium. Does that feel like the right price for what the U11 Life has to offer?

As a reminder, were looking at 5.2 1080p screen, Snapdragon 630 chipset, IP67 waterproofing, EdgeSense and Usonic headphones in the box. The phone will launch with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

This lite version of HTCs flagship will come with two 16MP cameras one on the front and one on the back. Both will have f/2.0 lenses.

Keep in mind that an HTC U Play is around 230 (it started at 470) at the moment while a Galaxy S7 or LG G6 is 400 or so. HTC will have to put on a pretty good show on November 2 to justify this (admittedly unofficial) price tag.
