HTC has unveiled its new device HTC U11 with a revolutionary squeeze interaction feature. It’s the third member of the HTC U family, after the U Ultra and U Play. U11 is a flagship device from HTC. The device features liquid surface, a stunning, unique design and a reflective glossy back.
The device is IP67 rated water and dust resistance certification. It also comes with HTC’s usual BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition stereo speakers. The HTC U11 sports a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display at 534 ppi.
The U11 would feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4Gb RAM and comes with 64GB of onboard storage and microSD card support of up to 256GB. The battery pack is rated at 3,000mAh and supports latest Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. The device runs HTC sense UI over top of Android 7.1 Nougat operating system.
HTC came out with its own Sense Companion assistant that uses artificial intelligence to ‘learn’ user habits and suggest content based on users habits. One of the main highlights of the U11 is the Edge Sense: a user can interact with a squeeze. You can easily open applications just by squeezing the U11. However, different levels of pressure can be used for opening different functions of the device.
The HTC U11 has a 12 megapixel, UltraPixel 3 rear-facing camera features optical image stabilisation (OIS). The front-facing ‘selfie’ camera is 16 megapixel and can also be triggered by voice command.
The HTC U11 will be available in Amazing silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant black, ice white and solar Red color variant and will be available worldwide starting from May 2017.
