- The U11 comes with a standout feature dubbed Edge Sense. This lets you squeeze the phone in order to execute specific actions. So you can, for example, snap a photo just by squeezing the U11’s frame. You can customize how hard you need to squeeze to make something happen, of course.
- The handset is Hi-Res Audio certified, and comes with BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition, just like in the HTC 10 – this means that the earpiece and speaker on the bottom are used for R&B effect.
- 3D audio recording capabilities by using 4 microphones.
