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