HTC has taken the wraps off its new high-end smartphone, the HTC U11, which introduces a new squeeze command for opening apps and voice assistants.

There is no information provided regarding the price but the smartphone is expected to be Rs 50,000. 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. In Europe, it costs 749 euro. Further, HTC U 11 will feature a 5.5-inch display WQHD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixel. The device is powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 coupled with a 4GB of RAM. While we are on the topic of the camera I might as well say that HTC uses a 12MP (HTC UltraPixel 3 with 1.4μm pixel) main camera with UltraSpeed Autofocus, a BSI sensor, OIS, and an ƒ/1.7 aperture.

The HTC U11 also comes with 3D audio recording capabilities, for which the company has fitted 4 microphones.

This new device also excels on the camera front.

Interestingly, it seems that HTC thought having one AI assistant is too mainstream so it chose to throw in Amazon's Alexa along with Google Assistant, although both can do the same thing.

The glass-cased device comes with a new feature called Edge Sense, which allows users to apply pressure to the sides of the phone to quickly launch various applications like the talk-to-text, email, camera, or virtual assistant functions. It's created to make it easier to do basic tasks single-handedly, and given the U11's expanded display dimensions, any assistance when using the phone with one hand is appreciated.

You can make use of Edge Sense when the phone is wet or when you're wearing gloves, and the pressure shortcuts can be assigned to any app you like. The device measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9 mm and weighs 169 grams.
