This phone is said to outstand the company's other smartphones - HTC U Ultra and HTC U-Play. This invitation had a tagline "Squeeze for the brilliant", and a curved letter U. This hints us about its touch-sensitive frame called as Edge Sense. The sensors are placed around the body of the phone which lets you perform actions like launching an app or taking a photo just by squeezing the sides.

There were numerous leaks and rumours about the specs of this phone which actually raised the eyebrows of many. As a support to this, now the company itself starting teasing the phone on social media platforms.

Rumors say that this phone will have a Quad-HD screen of 5.5-inch and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. With 4GB of RAM, it is said to have at least 64GB of native storage.
