New HTC midrange device spotted on GeekBench with a Snapdragon 625 and Android Oreo

A new smartphone by HTC has appeared on GeekBench’s database and it is a midrange device. Based on the specifications from GeekBench, the tested device is powered by a Snapdragon 625 CPU with 3GB of RAM.

Ronald Quandt posted on his official Twitter handle, about this revealing info about said device.

The HTC U11 already has three other variants: the HTC U11+, U11 Life, and U11 Eyes. So there are a couple of possibilities as to what this unknown device actually is.

One possibility is yet another U11 variant that’s even cheaper than the U11 Life, presumably some kind of “Lite” version. The U11 Life already has a Snapdragon 630, water resistance, and HTC’s USonic noise-cancelling earbud experience.

It is a possibility that an even cheaper version of the U11 would probably get rid of water sealing, Edge Sense (Squeeze features), and perhaps even the USonic earbud experience.

Otherwise, it could be that HTC is coming out with a successor to the HTC One A9, which ran a Snapdragon 617 and had a metal unibody design and antenna lines.

Some folks weren’t excited about HTC departing from its tough phones built of solid metal toward its new, more fragile Liquid Glass design, so maybe HTC looked backwards to design a mid-range device.

At this point it’s anyone’s guess as to what HTC is planning. The Taiwanese company could be planning to announce a mid-range device for the MWC since it won’t be announcing a successor to the HTC U11.
