HTC U 11 is the new flagship that calls you to squeeze it!

HTC U 11 is the new flagship that calls you to squeeze it!

The HTC U11 has been a pretty poorly kept secret, but it is now official and we can finally share the dirty details. As expected, the device is an improved U Ultra with similar design, a bump in specs, and a new Edge Sense feature that allows you to squeeze the sides of the phone to get things done.

In terms of specs, the HTC U11 features a Snapdragon 835, 5.5-inch QHD LCD display, 12MP f/1.7 camera, 64GB storage with SD slot, 4GB RAM, fingerprint reader, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat under HTC Sense. 

As for the squeezy Edge Sense stuff, it’s not exactly how original reports suggested. It’s not a touch sensitive area, but rather a pressure sensitive one. That means you can’t slide a finger on it to adjust the volume or something like that. Instead, you can do short or long squeezes to launch apps, open Google Assistant, fire up the camera and take a shot, turn on the flashlight, etc. It’s still pretty cool, though, as an added hardware feature that you might use regularly, unlike previously included ticker displays.

The rest of the device features HTC’s liquid glass surface like we saw on the U Ultra. The back of each phone is super attractive, even if you do have to use the included cloth to wipe off fingerprints every 30 seconds. HTC has created a really nice aesthetic here. Just avoid looking at the front, with its huge top and bottom bezels.
HTC is including a pair of its USonic earbuds once again. These are USB Type-C buds with active noice cancellation, since the phone doesn’t have a headphone jack, but HTC is tossing in a Type-C-3.5mm adapter (with a built-in DAC!) this time. HTC BoomSound is there as well, along with 3D audio recording, thanks to four microphones.

HTC also says that the 12MP f/1.7 camera here is one of the best in the business. In fact, DxOMark rated it a 90, the highest rating ever for a smartphone. HTC tossed in features like HDR Boost, to give you HDR photos without lag, UltraSpeed AutoFocus, and both optical and electronic stabilization.
