HTC U 11 will have an Edge Sense app to teach you how to squeeze

HTC U 11 will have an Edge Sense app to teach you how to squeeze (the phone's frame)
HTC's next flagship smartphone, the HTC U 11, will come with a brand new feature called Edge Sense - utilizing the handset's pressure-sensitive frame/bezel. Yesterday, an official HTC Edge Sense app briefly showed up on Google Play Store, inadvertently confirming the feature's existence.

While HTC pulled the app from Google Play, we can still see some screenshots of it. 

Since Edge Sense is a new feature, its dedicated app will first take you through a short tutorial to "test your squeeze force." It looks like you'll be able to squeeze the frame of the U 11 and get various responses from the phone in multiple occasions, including in the camera app, when composing messages, or to fire up Google Assistant.

Of course, at the moment, we can't know just how well Edge Sense works, and neither if it's going to be a user-friendly way to interact with the new phone. But we'll find out soon, won't we?

The HTC U 11 will be officially announced on May 16 (this Tuesday), and we expect HTC to start selling it shortly after that. Stay tuned.
