This Unique Feature Of HTC U11 Is A Game-changer
Squeezing your smartphone as an alternative of the touches on a touchscreen is a unique experience. HTC is starting out casually with this very bizarre implementation. That means the company wants the majority of the smartphone users to squeeze their device rather than tapping on the screen. And this feature is a game-changer, especially in the tech market.
Meet The Unique Feature Of HTC U11
Nigel Newby-House, HTC America's vice president of product planning, says that the tech firm hopes to introduce people to this new experience via its new flagship phone, the U11. After some time, they are expecting for the Edge Sense feature to expand in the future once all users are used to gorilla gripping in the sides of the smartphones. Aside from being a game-changer feature because of its uniqueness, HTC also claims that it is also very convenient.
According to The Verge, the HTC U11 doesn’t actually flex when a user squeezes it. The smartphone has metal sides and a sensitive pressure sensor located below the volume and power keys. There is also an on-screen cue when the user is activating the unique feature.
Other Unique Features Of HTC U11
The Edge Sense feature is mainly designed to make it easier for the smartphone user to do basic tasks single-handedly. Any support when using the phone with just one hand is very much appreciated, thanks to HTC U11’s expanded display dimensions. Aside from being the first-ever squeezable smartphone, the HTC U11 is also the first smartphone to take advantage of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 support of two wake word commands.
In addition to that, there are also three artificial intelligence (AI) assistants right out of the box of the HTC U11, according to Blasting News. Meaning, the HTC flagship smartphone have two of the most popular AI assistants aside from HTC’s very own. The smartphones users may say “OK Google” to activate Google Assistant and say “Hey Alexa,” to activate Alexa.
