    We don't know exactly what is happening in terms of Google's Android One program, but a lot of major smartphone brands are now gearing up to launch Android One smartphones in the near future.

    After Xiaomi and Motorola, HTC to launch a new Android One smartphone

    Recently we saw a new series smartphone launch from Xiomi and the company did introduce the Mi A1 which is an Android One smartphone. Following that we also reported that Lenovo sub-brand Motorola was also planning to introduce its first Android One smartphone (modified X4) in the United States. And now we're hearing about another major company HTC that is also heading in the same direction.

    Well, Twitter user LlabTooFeR has tipped that HTC is aiming to launch an Android One version of its unreleased HTC U11 Life smartphone (also known as Ocean Life). And it is said that the smartphone will feature similar designs and specs, but the Android One model, as usual, will come with stock Android on board. Moreover, the post notes that inbuilt HTC apps will not come pre-installed on the Android One variant. Interestingly, the smartphone will run on Android Oreo with Sense 9.0 A1 UI on top.

    Popular tipster Evan Blass has also posted an image of the smartphone and it pretty much looks like the standard HTC U11 Life. The two phones will most probably feature the same design language and the only big difference could be the software that runs inside.

    Talking more about the phone, HTC U11 Life is expected to be launched later this year as a mid-range smartphone. The smartphone is suggested to come with a 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 16-megapixel cameras both at the front and rear, IP67 certification, Bluetooth 5.0, 2600mAh battery and the company's unique Edge Sense and USonic technology.

    In any case, it is quite surprising what smartphone manufacturers are up to these days. All we can say is that the brands want to make sure that they have a product in almost every smartphone category that is out there.
