The U 11 has pressure sensitive sides that react to you squeezing the sides of the phones and that lets you control some features of the phone, such as taking pictures and launching Google Assistant. The Taiwanese is going to offer the HTC U 11 in two variants, one with 4G of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage (for US, UK markets) and another one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (for Asia). You can squeeze the sides of the phone to open the camera app, capture a photo, and can perform various other actions. The device comes with advanced HDR settings such as HDR+, Smart Video Zoom, 3D Audio and Hi-Res recording features. At the back you get a 12 MP UltraPixel 3-branded camera offering a 1.4 micron pixel size, f/1.7 aperture, optical image stabilization and a dual-LED flash.

Another unique aspect of the new U11 is that it has a 16 megapixel selfie camera at the front. HTC will include a 3.5mm-to-USB-C adapter in the box, though, as well as a pair of USB-C earbuds with active noise cancellation.

You'll be able to buy the phone in Amazing Silver, Ice White, Brilliant Black, Solar Red and Sapphire Blue when it launches, and each color will have a pearlescent, two-tone look about it. As the rumors gave it to think, the HTC U 11 takes again the design of the HTC U Play and U Ultra presented at the beginning of the year.

Talking about the specs of the smartphone, just like we had reported earlier today, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is the newest one from the company.

Boeing and Airbus each have backlogs of thousands of their own single-aisle planes and struggle to increase production. The C919 is a competitor for Airbus' A320 and Boeing's 737 and will offer configurations of between 158 and 172 seats.

Edge Sense can be set up with short or long squeezes for different commands and used in conjunction with voice commands with Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa. It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat with HTC sense. The size of the screen and the resolution leaves the new HTC flagship with 534 ppi of pixel density. Under the hood, it has a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging. According to camera gurus, the HTC U11 camera scored 90 at DxoMark, making it the highest ever rated on the website.

"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.

However, all three devices each has a 12 megapixel rear camera, all of which also feature a variety of imaging technology created to compose images in different ways.

There's a stunning 5.5-inch Quad HD 2K display and a Liquid Surface design which adds some bling to the phone.
