HTC hasn’t been a contender in the mid-range space in some time, but that’s going to change with the introduction of the HTC U11 Life. For less than $350, the U11 Life brings plenty of solid specifications to the table. It comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p Super LCD display, a Snapdragon 630, 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of on board storage, and microSD expansion up to 2 TB. It also has 16 MP rear- and front-facing cameras, an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance, a 2,600 mAh battery, and unfortunately no headphone jack.

Below you’ll find the full list of HTC U11 Life specs:
