HTC unveils new 'squeezable smart phone

The company will hold a press event, and anyone interested can watch a live stream.

HTC went with the slogan “Designed to Stand Out” for the appearance of the HTC U11. In India, we are looking at the best ways to ease buying of HTC phones. We first heard about Edge Sense feature back in September a year ago, although it was named Sense Touch then. The eye-catching new design and dual display make the phone different than nearly all the other leading smartphone models available in the market.

If you thought the HTC U Ultra was already too gimmicky with its "U" features, you're definitely in for a ride with the HTC U11. For instance, you can squeeze to take a selfie or launch the Google Assistant virtual helper. However, only two functions can be set at a time.

In the U.S., the HTC U11 will come in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, and Brilliant Black.

HTC will be making their new HTC U 11 smartphone official today, although the handset has now leaked ahead of the official unveiling. Or both are true. But the company plans to focus on the top 200 cities and branding in the top 100. The device is powered by octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with Adreno 540 GPU. Those include the Snapdragon 835 chipset and IP57 dust/water resistance. The phone has 64GB of built-in storage, but this can be increased up to 2TB with a microSD card. Some non-US markets will receive the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant.

Like the front panel, the back is also covered with the Gorilla Glass 5.

Unlike the HTC 10, the U 11 is also water-resistant and comes with IP67 certification. As early teasers for the device suggested, the HTC U 11 is all about trying to be your main squeeze.

The decline in USA crude oil inventories is likely due to the increase in gross inputs to refineries in April. Global benchmark Brent futures LCOc1 were up 19 cents, or 0.4 percent, at $48.92 a barrel at 0612 GMT.

One also can't forget about the HTC Sense Companion which is like Google Now for HTC devices. They from your phone's battery, which is both good and bad: you'll never have to keep in mind to charge your headphones before a flight, and but you can bet it'll impact your battery life somewhat. Take a look at its specifications.

But then, the phone also secures its top position with a heavy-weight spec-sheet. It is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery and is mentioned to support QuickCharge 3.0 instead of QuickCharge 4.0.

Obviously there's a big difference here, in that the HTC U11 runs Android while the iPhone 7 runs iOS. It will be available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red color options. No particular date has been revealed by the company. As a result, you get 360-degree audio experience.

Well, the pricing details have not yet been dislcosed but it is expected that in all respects, the handset will be in tmid-range category.

To be honest, I have my doubts about this price. But the fingerprint sensor in the new HTC U Ultra is very responsive and swift. That's for a phone with last year's processor and without the Edge Sense feature.

Another great feature is the 3D audio that HTC has embedded into the U11 which makes use of the phone's four microphones.

At some point, we've all struggled to reach the soft camera shutter key on a smartphone while trying to use it one-handed.
