HTC posted another teaser in anticipation of its upcoming device that’s set to be announced in Taiwan on May 16. The HTC U 11 will feature some new touch-sensitive edges that can interpret gestures into actions. HTC feels that this touch-sensitivity would be best exemplified by various clips of people squeezing things.
Dog toys, burger buns, fruit, and staplers: these are all things that we apparently like to squeeze on a regular basis. Thrown into the montage is a shot of the smartphone in question right at the 3-second mark.
If the color is any indication, it looks like we can expect to see same deep, reflective blue paint job that we’ve already seen on the HTC U Ultra. The video ends with “Squeeze the Brilliant U”, and reminds us of the announcement date.
As previously leaked, the HTC U 11 will be offered in five colors: white, black, blue, red, and silver. Note that not all colors will make it to many markets. Also according to leaks, the HTC U is expected to sport a 5.5-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 835 chip, 12MP camera, 16MP selfie shooter, is said to have Bluetooth 5.0, and either 64 or 128GB of expandable storage.
