The new smartphone is likely to be the mid-range HTC U11 Life that would help the Taiwanese company take on LG, Samsung, and Xiaomi that all are offering their new models with minimal bezels. The business is launching the handset on November 2.

According to the teaser posted by HTC through its official Twitter accounts, the organization is preparing the introduction of the bezel-less smartphone. The teaser reads, “You’ll believe it all on 11.02.2017.” It also includes an image that apparently gives a glimpse of this brand new launch – sporting thin bezels around its display. Notably, the image also indicates no front-facing home button to the new U series smartphone, unlike the previously launched HTC U11, U Play, also U Ultra that all had a fingerprint scanner-equipped home button on the front.

The lack of the front-facing button on the brand new teaser implies that the brand new HTC U-Series smartphone would have a home button on the trunk with a fingerprint scanner – as the spotted in the first teaser which only emerged last week. The previous teaser also confirmed that the handset will not proceed together with the ongoing trend of dual-camera smartphones and will include a single primary camera sensor on the back, along with an LED flash. The smartphone will also have a secondary, noise-cancellation microphone.

Initially, HTC has been rumoured to start the U11 Plus and U11 Life in its November event. Prolific tipster Evan Blass, nevertheless, last week claimed that the organization is planning to launch only the U11 Life. A Geekbench listing surfaced before this Blass claim, revealing a Snapdragon 660 chipset about the brand new HTC smartphone together with 3GB of RAM. The grade listing also pointed to Android 7.1.1 Nougat that would be furnished with a custom HTC skin on top.

The HTC U11 Life is anticipated to have squeezable edges — identical to this Pixel 2 and Pixel two XL — also as a metal body with a glossy finish, similar to the HTC U11. The smartphone would be the first by the company to support 18:9 aspect ratio over the bezel-less display panel.
