Android One HTC U11 Life looks like the Baby Bear of the family

This week the folks at HTC have a big set of leaks on their hands - maybe even the entirety of their Fall Lineup, unless they have a third device that we've not seen yet. The device we're looking at right this moment is the Android One of the two devices. This means it's mid-range, coming with a relatively affordable price (more than likely) with specs that aren't mind-blowing, but certainly aren't bad.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro DxOMark camera rating challenges Pixel 2

Huawei Mate 10 Pro DxOMark camera rating challenges Pixel 2

iPhone X release nightmare: Here’s the problem
