HTC launches 'squeezable' U11 smartphone to rival the iPhone 7

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

On top of boasting an appealing premium glass design and a powerful Snapdragon 835 processor, the HTC U11 also introduces the Edge Sense - a completely new way of interacting with the smartphone - which we're going to talk about in a little bit. The 6GB RAM version comes with 128GB storage, while the 4GB RAM version includes 64GB inbuilt storage. This allows you to launch apps, the camera, take photos and more with a squeeze or two of the phone's edges. The device also records 3D sound via the bundled headphones. The successor to HTC 10 and a new member of the U family, HTC U11 comes with a standout feature dubbed Edge Sense.

Bear in mind that HTC also made a decision to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack but it bundles the smartphone with a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter.

The U11 will arrive in United Kingdom later this year in five funky colours including Amazing Silver • Solar Red • Brilliant Black and Ice white. It's an interesting idea, but we'll have to wait to get our hands on an HTC U 11 to see how well it works in practice.

Under this all-glass shell is the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which is one of the fastest chips now on the market.

The similarities between the U11 and the U Ultra don't end with the finish either, as the new phone omits the headphone jack too. The device also has a choice of digital assistants: the HTC Sense Companion, as well as Google Assistant, and even Amazon Alexa in certain countries (the United States, the UK and Germany). Thus HTC has worked hard on aspects of this smartphone which could differentiate it from Droids from other brands.

HTC is selling the unlocked variant of U11 which will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile Networks. Power comes courtesy a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

With numerous Android flagships arriving this year, HTC has finally raised the curtains and announced the U11. Things like opening the camera and any other app or even sending a voice-commanded SMS, among others, can be done via this Edge Sense technology.

HTC U11 features similar design to that of the HTC U Play and U Ultra.

The HTC U11 is also the Taiwan-based company's first IP67 dust and water resistant phone. Tell us your thoughts down in the comments right away.

China-made jet takes off in maiden flight
State broadcaster CCTV sent out live footage from the plane, which had no passenger seats installed for the maiden flight. The jet may yet have to undergo years of tests to get certified in China, not to mention the USA and Europe.

For photos there's an updated 12-megapixel rear camera which has something called UltraSpeed focus. And the phone comes in five gorgeous, shimmering colors, including two impressive new hues - "amazing silver", which shifts between a sky blue and silvery gray, and the fiery "solar red", my personal favorite.
