The new input can be used to take photos, launch Google Assistant, send messages and open many different kinds of apps.

The Edge Sense is made possible using eight power gauges inside the phone, to always be aware and ready for pressure to let you open up whatever you want.

HTC U11 will also arrive with an included DAC adapter. The phone is both compatible with Google and Amazon and features Alexa as one of the wake words.
