HTC U11 Squeezable Smartphone Officially Announced

May 16, 2017 by
HTC just announced it's third smartphone this year - the U11. The U11 is currently available to Canadians in Brilliant Black, Amazing Silver and Sapphire Blue. There are also Solar Red and Ice White colour options, though it is not confirmed if they will eventually be released in Canada or not.

Key Features:

  • Liquid Surface -  The liquid glass surface is crafted to impress using Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition. By randomly layering highly-refractive precious minerals across the phone’s back cover, we’ve created stunningly vivid new colors that transforms light with every movement you make.
  •  3D Glass Screen - HTC U11 has a 5.5" 3D glass screen designed to preserve the authenticity of the image. With our best display and true-to-life color reproduction, we provide you a purer full-framed viewing experience. Our display avoids the cropped pictures or distorted colors at the edge that are the results you can expect from a curved screen.  
  • Edge Sense - What we take for granted is what we can also take advantage of, like something as common as gripping a phone. Edge Sense transforms this fundamental gesture into a completely new and revolutionary interaction with your phone. With a simple squeeze, Edge Sense lets you enjoy even more the things you love. Taking photos. Launching your favorite apps. Text on the go. Before, it was a hassle to reach these features, but we simplified it into a single motion. Thinking outside the box, we are now bringing you the next age of phone interactions.
  • Usonic - Immerse yourself in purer audio. HTC U11 introduces the latest version of HTC USonic, which now combines Active Noise Cancellation with the ability to tune audio to your unique hearing. Other headsets focus more on obtaining great sound quality while overlooking the fundamentals – each of our hearing structures are different. Our USonic earbuds map your inner ear with an advanced sonar-like technology and then adapt the sound profile to your unique biology. This creates an incredibly personal and optimized listening experience with vibrant audio shaped specifically for you.

  • Best smartphone camera ever - The HTC U11 camera has achieved an incredible DxOMark 90 score, making it the highest rated smartphone ever in DxOMark history. Our impressive multi-axis optical and electronic stabilization system and super-fast autofocus in all lighting conditions make the camera quick, your pictures sharp and videos smooth. We improved our camera and video for a more dynamic exposure range with HDR Boost without the lag, new white balance enhancement, a major reduction in noise, and excellent detail preservation. With the award-winning HTC U11 camera, you will be impressed with each and every shot.
