The HTC U11 Life came with an Android 8.0 version out of the box for all global markets besides the United States market. You can check its availability on your smartphone by visiting the System updates option from the Settings menu. The U11 runs a almost stock version of Android 7.1.1 and has some pretty powerful internals (such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM and 12MP rear camera) along with some useful gimmicky features (such as the "squeezable" Edge Sense and multiple AI-based assistants). These sensors are integrated with the Edge Sense and lets users long press to launch an app. Called Xperia Actions, this patented feature of Sony has the ability to determine the best set of device settings for improving the performance and battery life of the smartphone.
