HTC’s newest phone, the U11 EYEs, has been a rumored addition to the U11 family, and we now know a few more details about its specs, thanks to details leaked by Venture Beat’s Evan Blass on Twitter.

The U11 EYEs has a 6-inch screen with a 1080 x 2160 Super LCD3 display. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, and a 3,930mAh battery. However, it’s still running the now outdated Android Nougat out of the box instead of the latest Oreo.

It has two front-facing cameras, built to the right of the earpiece, that are probably the “eyes” the phone is named after. We don’t yet know the specs of the front-facing cameras, but they likely have some kind of selfie portrait mode that’s been the standard on most HTC phones.

The rear of the phone has a single camera. It also has USB Type-C for fast charging and an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. The U11 EYEs also features Edge Sense, like its predecessors, so that you can squeeze as a single-handed shortcut button.

In keeping with the red phone trend that’s taking off in Asia ahead of Lunar New Year next month, HTC — which is based in Taiwan, although part of its smartphone team was bought by Google — is releasing its latest phone in a shade of deep red. The phone also comes in black or silver, and will be available on January 15th. Its price is rumored to be around $510.
