Inspired by the power of touch, HTC today unveiled HTC U11 at Sprint’s New York City Executive Business Center. Ryan Sullivan, VP of Product Development at Sprint and Andre Lonne, President of HTC Americas show off the new device.


HTC U11 is the world’s first smartphone with revolutionary new squeeze interaction and powerful features including:
 

  • HTC Edge Sense transforms this fundamental sense into a completely new and revolutionary interaction with your phone. With a simple squeeze, HTC Edge Sense lets you easily engage with your phone in an unprecedented yet intuitive way, helping you more naturally enjoy the things you love like taking photos, opening Facebook, or launching any of your favorite apps.

 

  • HTC U11 is the first smartphone  to feature hands-free wake word access to Amazon Alexa. By simply asking questions such as “Alexa, what’s the weather today?” or saying things like, “Alexa, turn on my living room lights,” Alexa will respond to your needs anywhere you go, making it easy to control smart home products, ask for news, weather, music, and the 12,000-plus skills in the Alexa skills store. 

 

  • HTC U11 is the first smartphone to be commercially released worldwide that is exclusively powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform. Every HTC U11 also includes UFS 2.1 for an extremely fast processor paired with the fastest memory performance.
