HTC U11 unveiled with dual selfie cameras for 'bokeh' portraits

Fresh take on U11 with imaging technology to the fore.

HTC has unveiled a new smartphone with a dual selfie camera system that allows users to refocus pictures after they’ve been taken.

Dubbed U11 Eyes, the latest addition to the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer's U11 range packs in lots of new, fun features that make it a more interesting proposition than its predecessors.

The dual selfie cameras each have five-megapixel sensors with f/2.2 aperture and 80-degree wide angle view, with augmented reality stickers for turning your snaps into something a lot more kooky.

They also feature a live bokeh option for selfies, meaning you can blur out the background to give images a professional, 'portrait mode' look too.

Under the bonnet, the U11 Eyes retains many of the same specs as the top-end U11, including the excellent 12-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilisation, hi-res audio and water and dust resistance.

And it's got the standard U11's squeezable sides, which allow users to activate key features by pressing the sides of the device, too.

As is de-rigeur on modern smartphones, it's equipped with face-scanning security, although this function cannot be used to secure payments. For that there’s a fingerprint scanner round the back.

As this is a mid–range phone though, the U11 Eyes drops to an older version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset and lacks the BoomSound speakers found on the U11+.

Official pricing and UK release date are yet to be revealed.
