HTC has stuffed the U11 with an array of features like HTC Edge Sense, HTC USonic, HTC BoomSound, and HTC Sense Companion.

HTC Edge Sense is a new and key feature of the HTC U11, as it allows users to easily engage with their phone in an intuitive way, by giving them the ability to activate advanced touch and use a “short squeeze” as well as a “squeeze and hold” functionality for taking photos, voice to text messaging, launching any apps, opening email, trigger Google Assistant and more.

The Edge Sense is based on the pressure applied to the side of the device, which helps users to use the U11 in nearly any condition – including rainy weather.

HTC USonic, on the other hand, combines Active Noise Cancellation to tune audio as per user's unique hearing. The HTC BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition speakers promise more loudness and better Dynamic Range Audio. Upgraded microphones, along with new Acoustic Focus technology, provides the best 3D audio recording quality on the U11 from all directions. The device has four optimally positioned Omni-directional microphones.

HTC U11 comes with two intelligent AI assistants devoted to you, which include HTC's proprietary Sense Companion and Google's Assistant.

Talking of the design, HTC U11 has a liquid glass surface design which is crafted using Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition. The phone's back is layered with highly refractive precious minerals. Both the front and the back of the device comes with 3D glass. The smartphone is also water and dust resistant with IP67 protection level.
