In terms of optics, the smartphone features a 16MP camera on the back with 4K video recording support. Up front, there is a 16MP f/2.0 sensor that can shoot videos in 1080p. It packs a 2,600mAh battery to keep the lights on.
What's more, the device supports Google Assistant as well as Amazon Alexa and has an IP67 certified body for water and dust resistance. In addition, the U11 Life boasts of the Edge Sense feature with squeezable frames.
