Taiwanese smartphone vendor HTC Corp (宏達電) yesterday unveiled the HTC U11, a
new flagship handset, at the company’s headquarters in Taipei, with the firm hoping the model sparks a turnaround in its loss-making smartphone business.
The introduction of the high-end product is timed to mark HTC’s 20th anniversary, HTC said.
“We chose to launch the U11 today as it represents the beginning of another 20 years of HTC,” HTC president of smartphone and connected devices business Chang Chia-lin (張嘉臨) told a global news conference.
The 5.5-inch U11 is powered by Qualcomm Inc’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. It features a curved all-glass body. The edges of the device are touch-sensitive, allowing users to squeeze them to take photographs or open applications.
