HTC today unveiled HTC U11, the world’s first smartphone that packs in a new squeeze interaction. Called HTC Edge Sense, this feature lets you “squeeze” the edges of the U11 to perform a wide range of functions such as taking photos, opening Facebook, or launching any of your favourite apps.

The new Edge Sense is based on actual pressure applied to the side of the device. The feature works even when you are wearing gloves or in weather such as snow or rain that would normally be a challenge with capacitive buttons.
