Squeezy, squeezy!

HTC U11 flag­ship an­nounced with squeeze in­ter­ac­tion.

HWM (Malaysia) - - HOT SHOTS -

HTC launched its new flag­ship – the HTC U11 – last month, and it’s a phone with fea­tures that none of us re­ally saw com­ing.

The U11 comes with a brand new squeez­ing fea­ture, some­thing that HTC said will be­come the next break­through in in­ter­ac­tion. Yes, you read that right: The HTC U11 can be squeezed on its sides. Dubbed Edge Sense, the fea­ture uses eight su­per-thin pres­sure sen­si­tive strain gauges that are in­stalled into the lower half of the phone’s 5.5-inch frame, and can be squeezed to reg­is­ter any in­put.

By de­fault, the phone rec­og­nizes one in­put, short squeeze, and that au­to­mat­i­cally launches the front­fac­ing cam­era. From there, you can squeeze the edges one more time to take a photo. Nat­u­rally, once you get more ac­cus­tomed to the de­vice, you can be­gin as­sign­ing spe­cific func­tions to dif­fer­ent squeez­ing in­ter­vals (that are al­ready pre­set within the phone, of course).

Spec­i­fi­ca­tion-wise, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch QHD Su­per LCD 5 dis­play, Qual­comm Snap­dragon 835 SoC, and two mem­ory and stor­age vari­a­tions: 4GB with 64GB in­ter­nal stor­age, and 6GB with 128GB in­ter­nal stor­age. The HTC U11’s main cam­era uses a new 12MP, f/1.7 with a large 1.4 μm pixel sen­sor and op­ti­cal im­age sta­bi­liza­tion, while the front cam­era re­lies on a 16MP, f/2.0 sen­sor with HTC’s own Ul­traPixel tech­nol­ogy.

Meet the HTC U11, the first smart­phone with squeeze tech­nol­ogy.
