HTC U11: From 'Edge Sense' to 'Acoustic Zoom' here are 7 things you should know about the 'squeezable' phone

As scheduled HTC at an event today unveiled its new smartphone HTC U11 and it looks like the company is yet again taking the smartphone innovation to a whole new level with this smartphone. That includes the 5.5-inch Quad HD Super LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 layer for added protection. In terms of storage and RAM, it has two variants 4GB RAM with 64GB storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. HTC also flagged up 3D sound recording for more immersive videos, and a 12-MP UltraPixel camera that's apparently the new number one smartphone camera in the independent rankings produced by DxOMark - again, we'll reserve judgement until we can test it out for ourselves. The successor to HTC 10 and a new member of the U family, HTC U11 comes with a standout feature dubbed Edge Sense. However, the 3.5 mm headset jack is absent but to compensate, HTC is making enhancements to its USonic headphones which now will offer active noise cancellation technology, powered by the phone over USB-C.

The U11 will arrive in United Kingdom later this year in five funky colours including Amazing Silver • Solar Red • Brilliant Black and Ice white. There is no information provided regarding the price but it is rumored to be roughly Rs 50,000. The Taiwanese phone maker brings a new way of interacting with the phone and calling it Edge Sense.

John Oliver on Trump firing Comey: 'Can he really be this stupid?'

Internally there's an 835 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The HTC U11 follows the other two devices in the U lineup, U Ultra and U Play, that was released in February.

Users can pair Sense Companion with either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, says The Independent, or have all three of them activated at the same time. On the software front, the smartphone runs run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, with the HTC Sense UI on top.

Here are the most popular baby names in the US
The only significant change in 2016 was that Alexander fell off the boys' list, and Elijah made the list for the first time. Since the now commander-in-chief started his campaign trail, the name Donald has decreased in popularity among new parents.

HTC's last flagship smartphone was HTC 10. That means the U11 will come with Sprint's new HPUE technology enabled - making it the fourth such device in Sprint's lineup. And because Edge Sense is based on the actual pressure applied to the side of the device, it can be used in almost any condition - including while wearing gloves or in weather such as snow or rain that would normally be a challenge with capacitive buttons. There is also a 16MP sensor on front with low light shooting capabilities. Let us know in the comments section below. The main camera also gets features such as HDR Boost, dual-tone LED flash, Hyperlapse shooting and 4K video recording support.

The phone will be available in silver, sapphire blue, black, red, and white.
