HTC Reveals Its Latest Smartphone And It Wants You To Squeeze It
By Izza Sofia, 19 May 2017
HTC has launched a new top-of-the-line phone to compete with Samsung and Apple. And you do not just tap it—you squeeze it.
The world's first smartphone with “revolutionary squeeze interaction”, the U11 sports something called Edge Sense. It is essentially a pressure-sensitive panel on the side of the phone that can be customised to launch different features, such as load apps, turn on the camera or jump into voice-to-text for handsfree messaging.
The phone also has a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 835 processor and new glass and metal design.
The rest of the U11’s spec sheet reads like any other high-end Android smartphone. It has Qualcomm’s latest processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with support for microSD cards, a 12-megapixel camera with optical stabilization and dual-pixel autofocus, and a 3,000mAh battery. It is also water and dust resistant.
The phone comes in four colors—Brilliant Black, Amazing Silver, Ice White and Sapphire Blue. Read more about the phone here.
