HTC U11 smartphone with Edge Sense officially unveiled

HTC U Ultra's camera

After several leaks and a few teasers, HTC is finally launching its new 2017 flagship smartphone - the HTC U 11. In the video, it's demonstrated that you can open applications (like Chrome or the camera) and then also take pictures by squeezing the sides, which should come in handy to make the most out of HTC's quality front facing camera. 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 front camera actually has a higher resolution sensor, 16-megapixels, and features a special Special Panorama mode. It will come bundled with the USonic earbuds, 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter and a smartphone clear case.

The new HTC U11 will be available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red color options and should be hitting most of the markets by the end of May, with a price set at U.S. $649/€749/£649. The firm has unveiled the HTC U 11, which is their flagship device.

Inside the smartphone is a 3000mAh battery, 64/128GB of storage, a Snapdragon 835 processor (up to 2.45 Ghz), and 4/6GB of RAM, depending on the specifications you select.

The Taiwanese firm has launched the HTC U11 with a feature dubbed Edge Sense.

Coalition backed on budget bank levy
From 1 July, this will attract the tax advantages of super with contributions being taxed at 15% instead of marginal rates. The Coalition won the 2016 election, but a year later has delivered a Labor budget.

The phone won't have a 3.5mm headphone jack, but there will be a new set of headphones in the box - the HTC U Sonic. The device also has a choice of digital assistants: the HTC Sense Companion, as well as Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa in certain countries (the U.S., the United Kingdom and Germany).

HTC U11 runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and has HTC's proprietary Sense 9.0 skin on top of it. HTC points out that Edge Sense is based on actual pressure applied to the phone, so it is not a capacitive touch feature, so wearing gloves or using it while wet should not present an issue. The body of the HTC U11 is IP67-rated for dust and splash resistance.

In terms of photography, the HTC U11 has just been crowned the new king by industry experts DxOMark, managing a score of 90. The smartphone makers believe that this phone will surely cross the records of HTC 10.

"Instead, the first two U-series phones were meant to introduce the sleek, glossy glass design that will permeate the rest of the company's product line soon enough", says Engadget. The focus has been on the "Squeeze" functionality that lets users squeeze the metal borders of the smartphone to access several features. Aside from the Ultra's Blue, White, and Black, HTC has added Red and an "Aqua" shade.
