HTC says this will automatically adjust the recording volume when you zoom in on your subject in while recording video, so the audio is amplified in sync with how close you are to the action. Even better, you won't need an app running in the foreground like you did with the Alexa experiece on Huawei's Mate 9. In reality, it's far from that. It's far easier to use than my butchered explanation ascertains; a short squeeze takes a picture in the camera app, while a long grope will have you switching between shooting modes.
HTC's Edge Sense is interesting in its own right. Like I said, Edge Sense is a pretty simple concept. It's possible to assign any app on your phone to one of those two types of squeeze. This works from the lockscreen with the phone in standby or from the homescreen.
With the new "U touch", a user can interact with the device with a simple squeeze.
First, lets talk about what HTC are calling "Edge Sense". The HTC 10 was announced in April previous year, and it was expected that the company would launch its successor last month.
The Taiwanese tech firm says it wants to change the way people use their smartphones and the HTC U 11 includes sensors in the side of the device which allows it to perform tasks, such as taking a photo, simply by squeezing it. Oh, and it comes in "Amazing Silver" and "Solar Red" colour schemes.More news: Mother's Day Sales for Last Minute Shoppers
Past HTC flagships have always been metal-bodied lovelies, but with seemingly every other smartphone manufacturer moving down that same path HTC has opted to go glass instead. The way this phone catches and reflects the light is incredible to see; there's no other phone like it. It's the same chip that featured in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and massively outstrips the HTC 10's Snapdragon 820 in terms of performance.
The HTC U11 packs a 5.5-inch screen, and measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9mm. It should survive being drowned in the sink briefly just as well as a Samsung Galaxy S8.
HTC at the launch event also confirmed that the phone will be launched in India in June and it will come in only one variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. HTC has only recently started fortifying its phones with comparable levels of protection from the elements and the U11 enjoys some of the most robust in the company's history, with IP67 certification. The camera just got more human, eh? This means that HTC's 2017 flagship should survive being submerged under 1 meter of water for 30 minutes before it obtains any permanent damage. The device runs on Android Nougat and is powered by Snapdragon 821 chipset. Here's a complete guide to the HTC U11 versus the HTC 10. Take a look at its specifications. It should also have a 12-megapixel camera at the back and 8 megapixels at the front. HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition speakers got an upgrade, too. It will work to capture the best sound possible from the source of the audio. However, we miss the 3.5 mm headset jack.
The latest teaser about 360 "real-life" recording was an apparent reference to the 3D Audio Recording capability in the phone.
