HTC U11 ‘Squeezable phone’ has been launched in India with a price tag of Rs 51,990 and only the 6GB/128GB has made a touchdown here which is literally one of the best decision HTC has made in a long time. We now have the best that there is and with a camera having the highest ever ratings, the company itself has proved the statement.
HTC U11 comes with ‘Edge Sense’ which is the biggest highlight of this smartphone as it lets users squeeze the device to set certain commands and functions, the pressure being also adjustable for unwanted operations. For instance, Edge Sense can be used to open an email app, game, the camera app, click a picture, activate voice assistants and it can also be customized by the user according to their preference. The feature on HTC U11 can also be used with gloves on, without any hindrance in operations.
