HTC is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone — HTC U 11 — on the May 16. In the meantime, the company continues to put up video teasers on its official YouTube channel. The latest teaser video is themed on “squeeze” and shows people squeezing a variety of objects. In short, HTC is hinting at the touch-sensitive edges of the upcoming HTC U 11 “Ocean” handset.
