The smartphone has a 3D glass body and features a 5.5-inch QHD screen. This is the next flagship smartphone from HTC and you won't regret buying it. HTC U11 launched and this is the third smartphone to be launched running Snapdragon 835 processor following Samsung and Xiaomi. The HTC U11 will be made available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red colour options, and will launch worldwide from this month, with some markets getting it next week, and others in June. The U11 is IP67-certified, meaning it can survive being dunked up to 1m for 30 minutes.

Some regions, most likely in Asia, will have a 6GB RAM/128GB dual-SIM variant. "Those who want to shoot and share their photos will particularly appreciate the vibrant colors and bright exposures of the HTC U11". According to camera gurus, the HTC U11 camera scored 90 at DxoMark, making it the highest ever rated on the website.

The first HTC U11 video HTC shared promotes the phone's design.

Key commons features among all three, however, include optical image stabilisation to reduce camera shake, as well as slow-motion video capabilities, and 4K resolution video capturing. The front camera sensor is 16MP one with BSI sensor, full HD video recording, and panoramic selfie. The device runs on Android 7.1 Nougat.

HTC is also placing a focus on voice assistants with the U11. Furthermore, HTC is going beyond squeezing as the feature also enables Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

Squeezing your phone to do things that you're used to using a touchscreen for is an odd experience, and HTC is starting out slowly with this implementation.

The HTC U11 has just been unveiled at a major launch event in Taiwan and features new technology which makes it squeezable. The smartphone comes with the Edge Sense feature bringing a completely new category of interaction with the smartphone.

The HTC U11 represents a natural progression from the previous HTC U Ultra model, both in terms of looks and functionalities. However, we miss the 3.5 mm headset jack.

It also supports USB Type C, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, NFC, GPS, Glonass, and 4G LTE.

The phone also drops the 3.5mm headphone jack, leaving only USB-C for charging, data, and audio. Edge Sense can be configured to do everything from taking photos to launching favorite apps or sending text messages, HTC said on its Web site.

Speaking of US customers, HTC said it has partnered with Sprint as its exclusive stateside launch partner.
