We had earlier revealed that HTC will be imbibing some of the distinctive features in its upcoming flagship smartphone, dubbed as HTC U 11. Now a latest update has been tagged to the rumor mills, which indicates that HTC U 11 could be the best handset of the company till date.
Talking about the unique features to be found in the flagship device, a HTC Edge Sense app had popped up in the Google Play App Store yesterday, affirming the 'gesture control edges' feature of the device. However, the app was pulled down from the Play Store shortly.
Earlier, a promotional video of the flagship phone had surfaced the internet showing the touch-sensitive edges of the handset which can be operated only through gestures like touch and voice of the users.
