HTC touts that camera-rating group DxOMark rated the HTC U11's camera a 90, the highest score in its mobile phone ratings. With its latest flagship device, HTC is taking this a step further by allowing the phone to be operated with a squeeze.
The latest HTC device is one of the best designed by the company.
Like the front panel, the back is also covered with the Gorilla Glass 5.

The other two times Trump said he asked Comey whether he was under investigation were in telephone conversations. He said the discussions happened in two phone calls and at a dinner in which Comey was asking to keep his job.
The phone will be available in silver, sapphire blue, black, red, and white. So what's new in the new flagship from HTC than those two?
Under the hood, the HTC U11 is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, the same chipset that's in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. This sleek new smartphone will be available shortly in 4GB RAM / 64GB storage configurations for £649 / $649.
Nano SIM, Dual SIM: Some regions. Power is from a 3000mAh internal battery promising up to 26 hours talktime on 3G/4G networks and the battery supports Quick Charge 3.0. With the U11, HTC has changed course, aiming to win over buyers by adding a completely different interaction method. It praises U11's Dual-Pixel PDAF and image processing, stating that not only does the camera focus extremely fast, but images have very low noise even in dark conditions. Unlike the approach that HTC's competitors are taking with their bezel-less designs, the Taiwanese company has chose to stick with an older design because a bezel-less form factor means that you will need to make certain compromises on the audio front. The smartphone can record video at 4K resolution with 3D Audio.
Amazon to bring opt-in notifications to Alexa
Echo devices already use a similar system, which is part of why they have so few accidental wake ups. Amazon on Monday announced a new feature that improves wake-word accuracy on Alexa-powered gadgets.
Using Edge Sense in these early moments quickly brings you in contact with Google Assistant, and since it is an Android device this makes sense. Second, the U11 also has hot word support for Google Assistant. As for the availability, the handset wil be launched in selected markets next week. It ships not with one but three virtual assistants on board, the Google Assistant and Alexa (on top of HTC's own Sense Companion) - although the later won't be available at launch (it will be added via a software update by end of June - hopefully).
How this works? Well, the smartphone has around 8 super sensitive microsensors embeded at the sides and these microsensors detect the level of force or "squeeze" and accordingly open up the set apps.
You can also activate advanced touch and use a "short squeeze" as well as a "squeeze and hold" for more functionality.

The children are then forced to leave their home and sync up with an "underground network of mutants and must fight to survive". While it's a premise we've seen before, the added mix of a child with special powers does provide a new Marvel twist.
According to HTC, Edge Sense is a more intuitive way of snapping pictures on the go, saving you from fishing around for an on-screen shutter button, or readjusting your hands to reach the physical volume button. Just like iPhone, it lacks 3.5mm headphone jack. Connectivity options include 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC.
