HTC U 11 video leak shows off Edge Sense in action, and more
A video leaked out this afternoon from an unknown third party that shows how the Edge Sense feature will work on the HTC U 11. The phone is expected to be unveiled by the manufacturer tomorrow, and the video has already been removed by YouTube. However, it has been posted on another site. The video reveals some of the functions of Edge Sense, a new feature that opens some applications when the bottom sides of the unit are squeezed together. Edge Sense gives the phone's user the ability to snap a picture by using Edge Sense like a shutter button.
Squeezing in the sides also opens certain applications such as Chrome and the camera. And there is a calibration screen that shows how hard you are pushing in the sides of the phone, and allows you to adjust the amount of pressure needed for Edge Sense to work. Other parts of the leaked clip show off the Type-C USB port. The super shiny rear cover of the HTC U 11 also makes an appearance in various colors like Light Blue, Black, Red, White and Dark Blue.
The video also reveals that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset, as expected. 6GB of RAM is inside. We should find out everything tomorrow when the handset is officially introduced, so keep checking in.
