The HTC Ocean Life may be a more compact and “Mini” or “Lite” variant of the current Taiwanese flagship HTC U11. Two of the most reliable leakers on the web, namely @LlabTooFeR and @evleaks, leaked few key information and image of the upcoming device will Android One stock OS.
LlabTooFeR opened the conference by saying that the HTC Ocean Life will be part of the Android One program, on which we have already seen a valid example with Xiaomi Mi A1. As we know, Android One is a “stock” version of the Android operating system, with software developments followed directly by Google. As a result, HTC Ocean Life will miss all HTC proprietary apps; and run Android O with Sense 9.0_A1 version.
Evleaks promptly responded to the LlabTooFeR tweet by confirming the information contained, and also adding a first render of the device, which never hurts.

From the front side, the device is basically based on HTC U11 design, same finishing, but the specifications should be downsized. The device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, a 5.2-inch full HD display, 2600mAh battery, and a 16-megapixel camera sensor on both front and rear sides of the device. The Edge Sense feature, as well as the USonic Wireless Headsets, will be missing.
