HTC U 11 with Edge Sense and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 officially launched

HTC U11 beats Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8 with highest DxOMark score

HTC U11 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display with 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and having the screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. But going by the leaks that happened earlier, the smartphone is expected to feature either 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. The most striking feature in U 11 is probably the simple squeeze on the side panel that allows you to initiate actions like take photos, open Facebook, or launch any of your favourite apps.

In the photography department, the U11 is also pretty well endowed, packing a 12-megapixel main camera with ultra-spread autofocus, BSI sensor, optical image stabilization, dual-LED flash, slow motion and 4K video recording capabilities.

HTC's latest flagship also has the highest specification front-facing selfie camera, at 16 megapixels, compared to seven megapixels on the iPhone 7 and eight for the S8.

Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and USB Type-C 3.1 port.

HTC U11's release date is slated for June in the US with an off-contract price of $649.

Major League Baseball notes: Mets suspend pitcher Harvey
They think he is one. "We have to understand we're employees, (you) have to come do your job every day", Jose Reyes said. Harvey went on to set a Mets franchise record with 11 strikeouts on his pitching debut and added two hits.

Under the hood, the HTC U11 is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, the same chipset that's in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Now, the last video HTC released is quite odd, it compares HTC U11's Edge Sense feature to squeezing various objects, like sponges, balls, kiwi, lime, and so on. As seen on recent HTC flagships, it also lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition to the Google Assistant that comes with Android, it also has HTC's Sense Companion and support for Amazon's Alexa assistant. HTC also squeezed in a decent 3,000mAh battery which supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology and comes with two different power saving modes.

Unlike other touch screen functions that require an actual finger on the display, HTC said Edge Sense is dependent only on the pressure applied.

HTC U11 features similar design to that of the HTC U Play and U Ultra. The focus has been on the "Squeeze" functionality that lets users squeeze the metal borders of the smartphone to access several features.

HTC is selling the unlocked variant of U11 which will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile Networks. Up front, the U11 has a 16MP sensor that captures 150-degree wide-angle selfies with a f/2.0 aperture. But HTC has introduced IP67 water and dust resistance, rating it for 30 minutes of immersion in a metre of water.

The phone will be available in five colors, depending on the market - blue, white, black, silver, and red.
