HTC rumoured to be working on mid-range device codename 'Ocean Life'

Reliable HTC leaker, LlabTooFeR has posted the complete specifications of the device on his Twitter account.

The U Play is a midranger and as it appears, it will be joined by another midranger sooner or later.

Also, the new HTC Ocean Life will debut with a slightly smaller battery unit of 2600mAh and similar to the U Play and other phones in the U series, we expect to see a USB-C port and a missing 3.5mm audio jack. With the Edge Sense, you can squeeze the sides of the phone to perform actions such as opening an application, opening a virtual assistant, etc.

Inside, the HTC U Lifestyle smartphone will feature the recently released Snapdragon 660 processor and 2,600mAh battery. And HTC will be adding the same Edge Sense technology to Ocean Life as well.

J.Lo didn't think Alex Rodriguez was smart, at first
She said the 14 time MLB All Star is: 'All the lovely things you would want a man to be'. He's a generous human being with his family, with his friends, with me.

Other features of the midrange HTC Ocean Life include Bluetooth 5.0, HTC Usonic and Sense 9.0 on top of the stock Android OS. Whether this phone adopts the same glossy design as the U11 is still unknown, but, all things considering, that's pretty much expected.

With this, it seems clear that HTC is really into the idea of a more tactile approach to using smartphones, and we'll most probably be seeing Edge Sense devices for a good while.

In terms of hardware, this HTC Ocean Life isn't going to wow anyway. As with the larger, more premium phone, there is no dual camera either, but the rear and front cameras are supposedly near equal 16 meagpixel shooters.

With that said, there's no word on a price point or release date just yet.
