HTC ’ s next phone will be squeezable . Posted 5 minutes ago by Jon Russell (@jonrussell). — HTC (@htc) April 20, 2017. HTC has confirmed rumors that its upcoming new smartphone — the U — will be squeezable .

HTC has confirmed rumors that its upcoming new smartphone -- the U -- will be squeezable. That doesn't mean the Taiwanese firm is about to ship a rubber device. Rather, the phone's metal frame will include embedded sensors that enable its owner to control settings and make gestures by squeezing its sides or swiping up and down on them, according to a VentureBeat report from prolific smartphone insider Evan Blass.

In order words, smartphone controls will no longer be limited to the screen.

Xiaomi phones will be available in the U.S. by 2019

  Xiaomi phones will be available in the U.S. by 2019 Xiaomi's new global head lays down a new timeline for the Chinese manufacturer's U.S. plans.That's because the Chinese manufacturer's phone will launch in the U.S. "in two years, if not sooner." Xiaomi's new global head Wang Xiang confirmed the news during an interview with CNET after the Mi 6 launch last week.

A new leak claims HTC ' s next flagship Android phone will come with edge sensors that'll perform different actions depending on how long you squeeze it.

The phone is intended to join HTC ’ s recent lineup of other U-branded phones , such as the HTC U Play and HTC U Ultra. This report lines up with another one of Blass’ leaks from earlier this year, showing a video of the presumed HTC U and its innovative control scheme.

It's an intriguing prospect, and we'll know more when the device is unveiled on May 16, according to today's HTC teaser. You can expect the company to shed more light on the squeeze mechanics and other features before that date.

HTC will hope that the U and its quirks make a larger dent than the U Ultra, which has already gotten a 20 percent price cut to increase its appeal despite going on sale just weeks ago.
