The video also demonstrates taking a picture using the feature, summoning the Google Assistant and Google Search from the homepage. Are you thinking about pre-ordering a unit? Previously, HTC had showcased U 11's touch sensitive bezels in a teaser video.

Along with this new way of interacting with the U11 there's also another feature tucked inside this smartphone that puts it one step ahead of its rivals. Or launch your favorite game (or any other app). If you manage to checkout from HTC's own US -based website when entering the code, the total price of the smartphone will be reduced from $649 to $599 (as shown in the image below).

While you may have been expecting a bigger battery pack, HTC says the battery will work harder and will optimise itself to ensure you get the best performance. It features a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) Super LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

But this phone is much more than just a quirky, gimmicky shortcut feature.

HTC U11 will also arrive with an included DAC adapter. A Beta version of the tool will be available from July 2017 and the software will be called Edge Sense Companion. Moreover, it is always on listening mode and will trigger the microphone closest to you to produce a more accurate voice transcription.

HTC is partnering with Sprint for the U11 launch in the USA, but an unlocked model is also available.

Coming to the camera department, the HTC U11 features a 12 MP UltraPixel 3-branded unit on the rear, while the selfie snapper is coming at 16 MP. This device has a 6-lens system on it. It can record 4K videos and slow motion in 1080p at 120 fps. Up front, the U11 has a 16MP sensor that captures 150-degree wide-angle selfies with a f/2.0 aperture. As seen with the recent flagship HTC devices, the HTC U11 also misses the 3.5mm audio port. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for the confirmation over the above mentioned specifications. Another interesting audio-related feature is Acoustic Focus, which turns up the sound on zoomed-in subjects. In addition, the headphones come with active noise canceling as standard. Thus it comes with liquid surface and metal unibody design.

So there's the HTC U11. It runs Android 7.0 and HTC's own Sense UI skin, and has 64GB of storage (expandable with a microSD card) and 4 GB of RAM. The device measures 153.9 x 75.9 x 7.9 mm and weighs 169 grams. The smartphone will be available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Solar Red and Ice White colour options. It's going to be mildly expensive, and you'll have to squeeze your wallet to have a go at this one.
