Now, HTC is preparing another new smartphone launch, the HTC U 11, and most of the details have just come out in a pretty huge leak. That includes the 5.5-inch Quad HD Super LCD display with Gorilla Glass 5 layer for added protection.

The HTC U11 will also pack four microphones to allow for 3D recording, even allowing you to zoom into the video and have the sound follow as well. The main camera also has phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, f/1.8 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, the ability to record slow motion in 720p resolution at 120fps. The successor to HTC 10 and a new member of the U family, HTC U11 comes with a standout feature dubbed Edge Sense.

It also supports USB Type C, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, NFC, GPS, Glonass, and 4G LTE.

HTC U11's release date is slated for June in the US with an off-contract price of $649. The video claims the HTC U 11 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC under the hood, paired with 6GB of RAM. The Taiwanese phone maker brings a new way of interacting with the phone and calling it Edge Sense. The phone certainly looks like an Android flagship on paper, boasting Qualcomm's flagship processor and a camera that's said to be the one of the best around.

One feature you may have noticed is missing from that list is a 3.5mm headphone jack, and that's intentional, because there are none of them to be found on the HTC U11.

He's held multiple leadership positions, including overseeing the FBI's national security branch and its Washington field office. Cornyn, 65, is the Senate majority whip and formerly served as a Texas attorney general and state supreme court justice.

By using "HTC Edge Sense for Voice-to-Text", the user can lightly squeeze, speak a message and send texts on the go. Power is from a 3000mAh internal battery promising up to 26 hours talktime on 3G/4G networks and the battery supports Quick Charge 3.0.

Do you like the HTC U11 and its "edge sense" features? The other two smartphones that have been launched in the same family are the U Ultra and the U Play. But HTC has introduced IP67 water and dust resistance, rating it for 30 minutes of immersion in a metre of water. The focus has been on the "Squeeze" functionality that lets users squeeze the metal borders of the smartphone to access several features.

Continuing on the audio front, HTC is leveraging its BoomSound Hi-Fi setup of using two speakers with the smartphone to offer louder audio levels and higher quality audio. The front camera is 16MP with UltraPixel light sensitivity, HDR Boost and noise reduction.

HTC U11 will be available in five colours including Solar Red, Amazing Silver, Brilliant Black, Ice White and Sapphire Blue and will be released in some markets this week, while others will get it in June.
