It was also speculated that the company would launch a cheaper version of its flagship smartphoneU11 Plus sometime in January. The company has put up a post on Weibo asking fans to "save the date", and tipping asking users to keep their "Eye" open. This EYEs device is similar, with the renders revealing dual front-facing cameras to the right of the speaker grill.

Taiwanese manufacturer HTC is getting ready to unveil a new smartphone called U11 Eyes. Also take note of the smaller bezels up front and the fingerprint sensor on the back, which is a welcome change in my EYEs (ha, pun). It will be IP67 rated for water and dust resistance. The phone's display also suggests a launch on January 15.
