HTC reportedly has a new smartphone in the works dubbed the HTC U 11. According to the rumors, one of the phone’s unique selling points is the fact that it will come with a touch-sensitive frame which users can squeeze and swipe to perform actions on the phone like launching apps.

In fact a recent surfaced not too long showed what the phone was capable of, although it has since been taken down given that it was not officially uploaded by HTC. However if you are looking for an official teaser, then you might be pleased to learn that HTC has since posted the first teaser video for the upcoming announcement.

The entire video focuses on squeezing which seems to confirm the rumors and speculation. According to the video’s description, “Natural. Intuitive. Effortless. A new way to interact with your smartphone is coming.” It is an interesting way to interact with the phone and to HTC’s credit, they’ve always been pretty brave when it comes to trying out new features, although unfortunately for the most part most of them have never really taken off.

In any case HTC will be officially taking the wraps off the handset come 16th of May as per their invite, so check back with us then for the details.
