Edge Sense technology allows the phone to recognize the user’s squeezing gestures and execute commands.

HTC’s newest flagship, the U11 boasts a gorgeous glass design, high-end hardware and cutting-edge audio-visual features worthy of the title. But can it compete with the heavy-hitters already in the market right now? We’ll find out later, when we get our hands on it. For now, let’s take a peek under its hood.
