HTC’s squeezable phone, the U11, has officially touched Indian shores. The real highlight of the phone is its Edge Sense technology that allows users to perform certain actions by applying pressure on the side metal frame.

The HTC U11 comes equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera with 5-axis OIS, EIS and f/1.7 aperture which managed to score 90 on DxOMark, which is better than Samsung Galaxy S8, Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel. That’s not all, it can shoot 4K videos with 360-degree sound recording. Up front, it features a 16-megapixel camera with a 150-degree wide-angle lens.
It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and comes running Android on 7.1.1 Nougat, which is layered with Sense UI. It includes 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS as connectivity options. The phone lacks a 3.5mm audio jack.
