HTC U11 Squeezable Phone Unveiled

HTC U11

The HTC U11 has been officially unveiled by HTC as their latest flagship for 2017 to go head on with the Huawei P10, LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. The premium smartphone other than packing top of the line hardware, it also comes with a unique feature - a pressure sensitive frame that allows you to squeeze your phone for different actions.


HTC U11 General Specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • 4 GB RAM or 6 GB RAM
  • 64 GB or 128 GB storage (UFS 2.1)
  • 5.5-inch 2560 * 1440 Quad-HD Super LCD5
  • 12 MP f/1.7, Dual Pixel AF, 5-axis OIS + EIS
  • 16 MP f/2.0
  • 3000 mAh battery (Quick Charge 3.0)
  • HTC BoomSound HiFi Edition
  • IP67 water and dust resistant

  • Edge Sense
  • Google Assistant & Amazon Alexa
  • 3D audio recording (with 4 microphones)
  • Liquid Surface design
  • USonic Noise cancelling USB-C earphones


The most interesting feature of the U11 would be the Edge Sense. HTC incorporates 8 tiny little pressure sensors along the both sides of the phone to pick up the different user-defined gestures. I feel you, it is kind of difficult to imagine how you can actually "squeeze" your phone. Check out the official HTC video below:
