HTC launches U11 with highest DxOMark score and Alexa assistant

The specs are pretty close to details leaked in March, but the new phone now officially introduces HTC's new squeeze interaction, dubbed Edge Sense.

The HTC U 11, as rumoured before, comes with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Super LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 coating.

As we have told you in our previous HTC U 11 articles, the smartphone will pressure sensors on the sides of its body, allowing users to perform various functions simply by squeezing or swiping along the sides.

The latest teaser about 360 "real-life" recording was an apparent reference to the 3D Audio Recording capability in the phone.

Speaking of the camera, it has a 12megapixel real UltraPixel 3-branded camera which offers a 1.4-micron pixel size, f/1.7 aperture, dual-LED flash and optical image stabilization. HTC U 11 will come in five colour options - white, black, red, blue and silver. If you manage to checkout from HTC's own US -based website when entering the code, the total price of the smartphone will be reduced from $649 to $599 (as shown in the image below).

Perhaps the most highly publicized feature of the device is its "Edge Sense".

Apart from that the phone is said to have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 along with 6GB of RAM. As rumored, the phone doesn't have a headphone jack, but the company will ship adapters with the phone.

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. The U11 is refined compared to the U Ultra - its camera bump is much smaller and the contours of the device are smoothed out and more pleasing to the eye - but this is very much cut from the same cloth (or glass, if you will) as its larger sibling. To keep the lights on is a 3000mAh battery unit that is equipped with support for Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The HTC U11 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with the customized HTC Sense UI laid on top. The HTC U11 will also be water and dust resistant, thanks to the IP67 certification. The front-facing camera is a 16MP snapper.

When you are told that HTC is launching a mobile, it comepletely different than any other smartphone. The company launched its "U" series earlier this year with U Ultra and U Play smartphones. Let us know in the comments section below. HTC boasts that the 12-megapixel camera on the upcoming flagship has a DxOMark score of 90, the highest DxOMark score ever - beating Google Pixel's score of 89.

The HTC U11 will sell from June for a recommend price of Euro 749 in a choice of blue, silver or black.
