According to the company, the HTC U11 is the first phone to come with Edge Sense technology that allows users to access certain activities or actions by simply squeezing the edges of the phone. That includes the 5.5-inch Quad HD Super LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 layer for added protection. While HTC users in some regions will be getting the new flagship device with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, in others, customers will receive 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory. This video shows that the phone will be available in multiple color options, it also shows the most awaited Edge Sense feature where the user squeezes the sides of the phone to launch the camera app and then take a photo. Four microphones surround the device in what the firm calls "3D audio" to offer clear voice recording.
HTC is also bundling noise-cancelling headphones in the box although, sadly, the firm has followed Apple and ditched the standard headphone port on this new phone.
HTC U11's release date is slated for June in the USA with an off-contract price of $649.
HTC's president of smartphones Chialin Chang took to the stage to announce the new phone, and highlight some of the key moments in the company's history in terms of innovation and smartphone upgrade.
Inside there's a Snapdragon 835 processor, the same chip inside the Samsung S8, so you can expect nippy performance all round. As seen on recent HTC flagships, it also lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack. The device also has a choice of digital assistants: the HTC Sense Companion, as well as Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa in certain countries (the U.S., the United Kingdom and Germany). The OS for the smartphone is Android 7.0 with HTC Sense over the top. But HTC has introduced IP67 water and dust resistance, rating it for 30 minutes of immersion in a metre of water. The smartphone makers believe that this phone will surely cross the records of HTC 10.
