HTC U11 Eyes – Dual Cameras Giving You “Bokeh”

Well, that was quick: HTC’s promised return to a dual-camera smartphone is already here. Meet the U11 Eyes which, as the name implies, is a selfie-centric smartphone featuring a pair of cameras on the front. These deliver live bokeh effect which supports re-focus after capture — just like the good old days with previous dual-camera HTC phones.

And yes, the U11 Eyes reuses the same shiny “Liquid Design” as the flagship U11+, but swapping out a few flagship-level features for a more affordable price. You’ll find an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset (which is approaching two years old), a 2,160 x 1,080 LCD instead of QHD, just three microphones instead of four (so no acoustic focus when using zoom in video recording) and no BoomSound speakers (so no stereo nor “Hi-Fi” output).

That said, you’ll still find a handful of familiar goodies, including the excellent 12-megapixel f/1.7 main camera (with O.I.S. and 4K video recording), Hi-Res audio capture, USonic self-tuning earphones, Edge Sense squeeze input, a generous 3,930mAh battery and the U11’s IP67 water plus dust resistance (the U11+ has IP68). The easiest way to tell a U11 Eyes and a U11+ apart is by looking at the ring around the main camera: the former has a thinner and shinier ring, which is the most apparent on the Solar Red version — the gold ring combined with the glossy red body would definitely get a seal of approval from Iron Man.
