HTC has confirmed rumors that its upcoming new smartphone — the U — will be squeezable. That doesn’t indicate the Taiwanese company is about to ship a rubber machine. Fairly, the phone’s metal body will include embedded sensors that empower its proprietor to handle options and make gestures by squeezing its sides or swiping up and down on them, in accordance to a VentureBeat report from prolific smartphone insider Evan Blass.

In purchase words, smartphone controls will no more time be minimal to the display screen.

It’s an intriguing prospect, and we’ll know extra when the machine is unveiled on Might sixteen, in accordance to today’s HTC teaser. You can hope the business to get rid of extra light-weight on the squeeze mechanics and other attributes ahead of that day.

HTC will hope that the U and its quirks make a bigger dent than the U Ultra, which has currently gotten a twenty per cent value cut to boost its enchantment despite going on sale just weeks back.
