HTC has released a new video teaser for its upcoming U 11 flagship smartphone, highlighting the Edge Sense feature.
The Edge Sense feature will basically allow users to launch apps on the edge of the display by simply squeezing along the bottom sides of the smartphone. As we have mentioned in our HTC U 11 coverage previously, the smartphone will boast a touch-sensitive frame, making it the first “squeezable” smartphone.
In addition to the teaser video, the HTC U 11 today made an appearance on the AnTuTu benchmark database, confirming previously rumored specifications. The benchmark listing reveals the smartphone is going to feature a 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution display and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC with the Adreno 540 GPU. At the back, the U 11 will feature a 12MP primary snapper paired with a bright f/1.7 aperture lens. On the front will be a 16MP shooter for taking selfies in high resolution.
In the memory department, the upcoming HTC flagship smartphone will include 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal memory. However, if another recent leak is to be believed, HTC will offer a 128GB variant in select markets with 6GB of RAM. On the software side of things, the smartphone is going to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out of the box, with HTC Sense 9 UI overlay on top.
The HTC U 11 will be officially announced at a media event on the 16th of May.
