After months of rumors and leaks, HTC's much-awaited U11 was launched today at an event in Taipei, Taiwan. He further added that the HTC U11 is a product that enables great interaction between the user and the device. Seduced by the design and features of the HTC U 11?

How this works? Well, the smartphone has around 8 super sensitive microsensors embeded at the sides and these microsensors detect the level of force or "squeeze" and accordingly open up the set apps.

HTC U11 will also arrive with an included DAC adapter. Until now users could use only one assistant at a time but the dual wake word will let users invoke either Alexa or Google Assistant.

HTC U11 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and includes Google Assistant.

The HTC U11 includes Amazon's voice-powered Alexa smart assistant.

At $649, the HTC U11 is cheaper than the U Ultra and comes with a bucket-load of features, including having a 12MP rear camera that has managed to score 90 points in the DxOMark camera test results.

Since it launched previous year, Alexa and the Echo speaker have become hugely popular and including it on the U11 is a smart move from HTC. Thus it comes with liquid surface and metal unibody design.

Similar to what we saw in the U Ultra, the HTC U will come with an option to record Hi-Red audio and 3D Audio. It will be available in solar red, awesome silver, brilliant black, ice white and sapphire blue color options. The HTC 11 sports a 5.5-inch 1440p display with 534 ppi for clearer images. There's also the usual array of NFC, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi support as well as a fingerprint sensor, light sensor, proximity sensor, magnetic sensor, and gyroscope. However, other details were not revealed. It has Qualcomm's latest processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with support for microSD cards (a version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will be available in select markets, but not the US), a 12-megapixel camera with optical stabilization and dual-pixel autofocus, and a 3,000mAh battery. The U11 costs £649 in the United Kingdom and is expected to ship on June 1.

What makes the HTC U11 special is the new Edge Sense, a feature that will, according to HTC, bring an entirely new way to interact with the smartphone.

HTC is back with its new, and very unique, U11 smartphone. HTC U 11 packs improved BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition speakers that deliver better sound with Dynamic Range Audio.

HTC U11 doesn't have 3.5mm audio port so you have to use the USB-C to listen to music.
