HTC unveils new flagship U11 smartphone

Tuesday 16 May 2017 | 09:39 CET | News
HTC has presented its new flagship smartphone, the HTC U11. The successor to the HTC 10 sees the company coming with a new design. rather than the metal unibody, which HTC says is all too common in the market now, it designed a metal frame with a glass body for the U11. As the glass is built up in multiple layers, the smartphone reflects the light in a range of colours depending on how it's held. Also new is the 'Edge Sense' functionality. The bottom left and right sides of the phone are touch sensitive, allowing users to activate certain functions by squeezing the phone in these places.
