Watch the HTC U11 event livestream at 2am Eastern

As we have told you in our previous HTC U 11 articles, the smartphone will pressure sensors on the sides of its body, allowing users to perform various functions simply by squeezing or swiping along the sides. On top of all of that, you can also set up the squeeze force level based on your preferences.

Another leak tips the HTC U 11 will go on sale soon after its big reveal. However, HTC is celebrating their 20th anniversary on May 16th, so they scheduled the launch date on that day. Thanks to a translation, we also get further confirmation on some of the specifications.

HTC U11 has been in the news for a long time now. Under the hood is the 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835 SoC built on the 10nm FinFET process. Internal storage is pegged at 64 GB.

Another leak has also revealed the speculated price of the HTC U 11.

We have also heard that the new HTC flagship will come with a 16 megapixel front facing camera designed for selfies and a 12 megapixel rear camera for photos and videos.

Alright, you Americans might be a little miffed that HTC wants to show off its new phone in the wee hours of a workday and jeez, couldn't it have waited just a few hours, like, that's all we could've asked for?

Since the day one of numerous HTC U 11 leaks, it was claimed that the phone would come with 5.5-inch QHD display.

The HTC U 11 is expected to feature the same size battery as the HTC 10 - 3,000 mAh.

HTC U 11 is expected to run Android 7.1 Nougat underneath HTC Sense 9. All these features do make the HTC U 11 a compelling device.

Still, the lack of of a touch-sensitive frame may disappoint fans of that erroneously-published concept video - and later, a faux commercial in the same vein (seen above) - who may have been expecting the device codenamed Ocean to respond to a variety of swipes and taps alongside the squeezes.
