HTC India has finally launched its latest flagship HTC U11 in India at an event earlier today. It was officially unveiled globally last month in two models for the Indian market, it has been made available only in one mode which is 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It will be sold in the country via offline stores, Amazon India, and HTC’s official online store with preorders starting June 17th. The flagship has been priced at Rs. 51,990 which puts it in the same line as the LG G6.

The USP of the HTC U11 is the ‘Edge Sense’ feature which lets you “squeeze” the smartphone to performing different tasks like launching the camera app and clicking pictures. The side frames of the phone sports sensors which get triggered when you apply pressure. This is a customizable feature which means you can set it to almost any app to do any task.

The HTC U11 comes with the same liquid surface design which made its debut with the HTC U Ultra and Play smartphones. It features a combination of metal and glass which can also be found on the back.
