HTC Ocean Life to be an Android One device

HTC Ocean Life will be the first HTC smartphone to come under Android One platform

A few days after Xiaomi announced its first Android One effort, the Mi A1 and a leak revealed Motorola is also prepping an Android One handset, we're hearing a third major company will soon join the ranks of the Android One for the first time. The report tells that HTC is making a new smartphone under the HTC Ocean lineup and it is internally called the HTC Ocean Life.

The U11 Life would lose most of the HTC apps and arrive with stock Android O labeled Sense 9.0_A1. If that's not enough to convince people, often reliable leaker Evan Blass confirmed the information on Twitter, and even shared what the HTC Ocean Life smartphone could look like.

Aid agencies must step up 'massively' to help Rohingya Muslims
Myanmar's forces have been attacking Rohingya Muslims and torching their villages in Rakhine State since October 2016. Violence broke out on August 25, after Rohingya fighters attacked police posts, prompting a military crackdown.

The device should also include 16-megapixel/16-megapixel camera combo, IP67 certification and the company's USonic earbuds with active noise cancellation.

Android One is Google's initiative to create smartphones that are targeted at emerging markets. This is the same thing that Xiaomi did for the Mi A1, which was just a rebranded version of the Mi 5X. The HTC U11 Life is actually an anticipated mid-range version of the early flagship HTC U11 smartphone, with some moderate hardware specification under the hood.

Florida Gators to host Tennessee Vols in Gainesville as scheduled Saturday
The following week Tennessee would deliver a much better performance against the Indiana State Sycamores, bullying them 42-7. That stat in itself explains exactly how bad the Gators were getting pushed around in the trenches by the Wolverines.

Coincidentally, HTC isn't the only manufacturer rumored to release its own Android One phone.

When the Google introduced Android One project in several Asian countries several years ago, they actually aimed to make the Android smartphones affordable for everyone.
